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.

Vibrant Red Bridesmaid Dresses

Posted by Emma in:
Bridesmaids dresses, Real Weddings

It’s very interesting choosing your wedding colours or theme, as it makes you take a good look at yourself. What is it about your personality that you want to be reflected in your wedding? Is it how you perceive yourself or how you want to be perceived?

It’s undoubtedly an easier question to answer if you are an extrovert, because on the whole, you love the fact that you’re bubbly and gregarious and you don’t care who knows it! So if you’ve got an energetic, vivacious personality, you will probably choose warm, bold colours for your flowers or for your bridesmaids to wear…or both!

I absolutely love the photo above, taken from‘s blog of this joyful Australian bride and her equally as happy girls dressed in their vibrant red bridesmaid dresses. And what fabulous flowers – a cascade of deep reds, purple reds, pink reds all interspersed with delicate, bridal-white roses. As the bride said, it was particularly helpful choosing her bridesmaid dresses from shopjoielle as her four bridesmaids had differing body shapes so although she wanted all the bridesmaid dresses to be the same bold red colour, she knew that she needed a variety of styles. And that’s exactly what shopjoielle’s supplier offers.

They can even supply ties (and waistcoats too) for the groom and usher in the same fab colour – Claret – for a really coordinated look:

If you have a younger bridesmaid, then Dessy also offers a selection of vibrant red bridesmaid dresses that are specifically designed to suit teenagers, like this stylish Junior Bridesmaid dress JR530. And how lovely to give your bridesmaids a matching friendship bracelet or minaudière as a reminder of your special day?

And don’t leave the boys out: Dessy has a fine selection of ties, cravats and waistcoats that coordinate perfectly with many of the bridesmaid dresses – you can even give the ushers cufflinks and studs to match!

And of course, such a fabulous colour red is the epitome of romance so it would almost be churlish NOT to choose it for your wedding, don’t you think?

love it
