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.

Light blue and purple wedding colours

Posted by Emma in:

Just when you think you’re settled on a blush pink theme for your nuptials, something like the wedding bouquet below comes along and wham, suddenly light blue and purple wedding colours are the order of the day. And who could blame you? I stumbled across this bouquet yesterday and was blown away by the fragile beauty of those hues; I literally don’t think that I have ever seen anything quite as beautiful. And what is even more fabulous is that the bouquet is made with SILK flowers. So not only will you have the most exquisite flowers on your wedding day, you will also have them for the rest of your life as a heavenly keepsake – what’s not to like?Light blue and purple wedding colours

The creation of lavender roses, lavender hydrangea, pale blue hydrangea and dusty miller silk flowers, wrapped with ivory satin ribbon on the stems, is from the amazing Holly’s Flower Shoppe on Etsy which is more than happy to ship its wonderful silk flowers to the UK. Holly also produces the most incredible wedding floral works of art using real flowers so if you’re getting married in Northern New Jersey, do look her up at Holly’s Wedding Flowers.

And for your bridesmaid dresses? Well, Dessy has a veritable wealth of gowns in light blue and purple so I have picked out just a few of my favourites which would work perfectly for with your choice of light blue and purple wedding colours. Because of the delicacy and romance of the colour scheme I have selected slightly floatier, prettier dresses rather than anything too structured.

From the left I have chosen Alfrted Sung D691 in Newport Blue, Dessy Collection 2907 in Serenity (one of the two Pantone 2016 Wedding Colours), After Six 6736 in Cloudy and lastly the sweet Dessy Collection Junior Bridesmaid dress JR530 in Suede Rose.

With many thanks to the incredibly talented Holly for the inspiration for this piece. For more ideas, take a look at her Etsy page HollysFlowerShoppe and prepare to have your heart melted at the sheer beauty of her work!

love it
