Roses are red, violets are blue... we're in the mood for a wedding, how about you?

There's nothing better than a wedding after the two years we've had. After isolation, lockdowns and heartache from missing our loved ones, give us as many wedding invitations as possible. We want hundreds of RSVPs coming through the letterbox. Because what's better than a wedding? A celebration of love and family, dancing and cake. What not to love?

Speaking of love, the first colour that comes to everyone's head when they think of that magical word is red. So if you want to proclaim the wonder of love on your wedding day, dressing your bridesmaids up in red is a perfect choice (especially if said choice is an affordable bridesmaid dress, to boot). It's a sumptuous and passionate colour that suits almost any skin tone. Plus, the contrast between your white wedding dress and their red gowns will look stunning in photos.
