Planning a wedding can be stressful and it seems there are a million things to do with just not enough days in the week to do them. You start with this clear idea of what you want, choose the colour that will echo throughout the wedding from the bridesmaid dresses, to the flowers and maybe the cake. Then you sit back and take a well-earned breather before going on to the next stage.
Rachel and Daryl, who are having a traditional wedding at Hylands House plumped for dusty pink as their main colour scheme. The house is a magnificent Grade II* Georgian Mansion and pink seemed just right for a lovely summer wedding at the house which is surrounded by magnificent parkland. Trouble was that there was this nagging feeling at the back of Rachel’s mind. They thought they had everything in place. Still, after trying at least 12 different shades of pink for the bridesmaids’ dresses, it still wasn’t working for Rachel. So despite the temptation to let it be they started from scratch and now have mint green as their main accent colour. “I just didn’t feel happy with it” said Rachel “and I advise anyone else that feels some part of the wedding planning isn’t working to consider changing the scheme and to revisit ideas even if you were at first convinced that this was what you really wanted. After all, it is one of the most important days in your life and it should be as perfect as possible.”
Carla the Chief Bridesmaid will be dressed in mint green and the two flower girls have mint green touches to their dresses. Daryl has a green cravat and waistcoat and even the three-tiered cake is mint green and pale pink. Next stop is finding the right accessories, which means a few inspirational shopping trips for Rachel and Carla. Following this, there’s an important date with the camera for Daryl and Rachel ahead of the wedding to ensure they are picture-perfect at the wedding.
