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.

And The Bride Wore …. The Palest Pink Wedding Dress

Posted by Emma in:
Real Weddings, Wedding Ideas

You know something? I love coloured wedding dresses.

Okay, so I know that traditionally brides tend to choose an ivory or classic white bridal gown. But really, shouldn’t you be able to dispense with tradition and wear something you LOVE?

Some brides really go to town on this idea and rock a scarlet wedding dress or a black number. And why not?

But if you’re a little less flamboyant, then you should be thinking about pastels maybe.  There are some beautiful dresses for the bride in pale pinks, baby blues, soft lemon yellows or lilacs. (Look at Blumarine 2013 bridal collection for some inspiration.)

So today I’m going to share the wedding day of Persephone and Eddie.

By the way, I love the jewelled bouquet … Sets off the dress to perfection!

Lucky bridesmaids! As a thank you, Persephone presented them all with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels.  Blissful swoon …
