When is wedding season?

Traditionally, wedding season runs between spring and autumn - although there's nothing wrong with having a winter wedding.

Most couples will marry in the months of July, August and September. Usually, this is the time in which people will be fighting for those venues. Summer weddings are very popular, but as we all know, here in the UK you can never trust the weather!

What colour bridesmaid dresses should I get?

If you're reading this article, then chances are you'll already have an idea of what colour scheme you're going for when shopping for bridesmaid dresses, as well as what theme you might be having for your wedding.

You can even have a variety of bridesmaid dress colours - if you use a palette with different tones than your stand-out colour, then it can be a really pretty and unique way to dress up your bridal party.

Some brides even let their bridesmaids go rogue and choose their own colours! It all depends on what you want for your perfect wedding.
