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.

Tulle bridesmaid dresses

There is nothing as romantic as a tulle dress, hence the profusion of joyous tulle bridal gowns available in 2016. And it’s no surprise therefore that tulle bridesmaid dresses are also proving to be a popular choice for this year. You can see from the featured image above of the pretty gowns from (the appropriately named!) Tulle and Chantilly and from Dessy below what a delicate and romantic fabric tulle is, lending itself superbly to shirring and pleating. I particularly love the Dessy Collection 2950 (shown in Celadon) as the narrow pleating over the hips gives an incredibly flattering hour-glass shape.

A similarly enhancing design is this Dessy Collection 2948. The starlight-coloured, appliqué fleur lace on the bodice (the dress shown on the left is in Rose Quartz) continues gracefully over the hips of the shirred skirt, which is most becoming on a fuller figure. This gown is available with starlight or black lace applique over any color soft tulle and has quite a different vibe to it with the black lace, as you can see below with this same dress in tutti frutti:

Another way to play the tulle theme is by having maybe your Maid of Honour in long and the other bridesmaids in short; you can see from the images below how well that plays together with style 2949 on the left and style 8171 on the right, both in Wildberry and Starlight:
