Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

Blush pink gowns

Blush – the very name of this pink has all the connotations of old-fashioned modesty, purity and romance when just the look from the man of your dreams was enough to send a delicate flush to your maidenly cheeks!

So it is no wonder that it is such an appropriately wonderful colour for a bride to choose for her bridesmaids – or even herself, as shown in the fabulous image above of a bride with her heavenly Bloomsbury Flowers bouquet. For a slightly sassier impact, these talented London florists have married the blush flowers with darker pinks and greens. But for a more chaste, delicate look add plenty of cream and ivory, as the beautiful bride did below. I love the addition of the pearl jewellery which goes so well with her maids in their pretty blush pink gowns.

One of the best things about blush bridesmaid dresses is that they complement girls of every hair colour, which is another reason why it’s a great choice. The blonde and brunette bridesmaids in the fab Adam Barnes Fine Art Photography above look every bit as divine as the gorgeous redhead in Jenny Haas‘ photograph below. And what an added coup, to get married when the cherry trees are in blossom – wow, now that is truly neat planning!

Roses are such a brilliant flower at the best of times, but when you choose a blush pink wedding theme, they come into their own. As you can see from the cascade of roses on the wedding cake below and in the pastel table decoration further down (with thanks to Jenny Haas),  you can achieve an effect of sublime beauty using an abundance of pale pink roses of all shades. The subtlety of the blush in the table napkins, cloths and candles prevents the room from looking too stark whilst still retaining an aura of delicacy and innocence.

By their very nature, blush pink gowns are dainty, exquisite and feminine, so why not go the whole hog and add that extra level of diaphanous beauty by choosing bridesmaid dresses enhanced with lace like the five below from

With huge thanks to the talented Jenny Haas and Adam Barnes Fine Art Photography for their photos of real weddings, and to Bloomsbury Flowers for their glorious featured image of the blushing bride and her divine bouquet.

love it
