If one of you is into convertible VW Bugs, and one of you is into the idea of a stretched limo, maybe it is time to take both of those ideas and throw them away in favour of something that is totally different.
Photos and videos are a hugely important part of your day in the same way that the caterer and the band is. They are something that you will be able to pull out on a rainy day in ten years time and look back at the day, the people and wonderful time that you had, and share it again with the new people in your life.
Take a look at the colour of your bridesmaid’s dresses and choose a colour that you like but also that works with the dress. There is nothing worse than having a gorgeous dress that is dwarfed by an overpowering or unfit bouquet.
There is also nothing wrong with having some bold and in your face colours in the arrangements. If anything it makes them more memorable and more exciting and can really set off the rest of the look. For example if you have a specific bold colour that you want as the theme for your wedding, let’s say purple, having a collection of pailer colours with an injection of one or two bright purple blooms with looks great.
Having said this, the tradition of the secret proposal and being swept off your feet is still strong, with your partner having done many months of detective work to find out exactly what the right ring is – but yes, leaving your Instagram open or Pinterest boards on your laptop screen as a helpful…..hint…..is still OK too!
Have you thought about a totally different colour? White is the traditional colour of course, but what about green, or red?
So where should you buy your dress?
There are so many possibilities when it comes to choosing and buying your dress, but there are also a few places that might not spring to mind at first. Of course there are lots of great bridal wear shops on the high street, many independent shops and boutiques and lots of major shops such as John Lewis, Marks and Spencer and Debenhams will have their own specialist teams dedicated to all things dressy!
