One of our top tips to brides planning for their big day is not to be afraid of asking for some advice. Take advice from those who have been through the process so you have the chance to avoid the same mistakes they made during their planning. For brides shopping for wedding dresses in Birmingham and surrounding areas we have some good starting points to help you get on the wedding planning wheel.
You will have a lot of ideas in your head so channel them all and get them down on paper. Start your own mood board by looking at colours and wedding themes, flowers, table decoration & wedding apparel. By having a mood board you will be able to look at what works best together and what doesn’t. Mood boards help you coordinate and create the right ambience. When looking for your perfect wedding dress a collage of styles that you think will suit you is also a good place to start. You can look at what is out there before you have even started your search and putting it together with your mood board and see if your style & theme come together. For inspiration and to get started on your own mood board visit top wedding blogger site Love My Dress; http://www.lovemydress.net/blog/2011/05/bridal-inspiration-boards-6-water-for-elephants.html as Annabel has some fab tips and great examples of mood boards, vintage, boho and modern chic.
Be brave and don’t be afraid to make some bold choices about style and if you need advice look into wedding forum sites such as http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/community/forums/ and http://www.hitched.co.uk/, where every day brides are talk about their weddings and get some ideas and feedback from them. At Rina Roberts Bridal Wear we loved the idea taking a main colour for your bridesmaids and having them all in different styles and shades of that colour. Example for a spring wedding, in shades of green; mint, peppermint & emerald, it would be so refreshing to see and all your guests will think how original! Above all enjoy this part of the planning stage as it will be you at your most creative.
