those tulip and lily bouquets are so sweet. i think teaming a few bright colours with a lot of white would help keep things fresh

LOVING your ideas!!!

We had something very similar to this and I had all my girls wear different colours of dresses – and it looked lovely!

I had a multi-coloured bouquet that had all the colours of the BMs dresses, and they had simple ivory bouquets.

My advice would be stick to a handfull of colours on your main decor – dont go too overboard with every colour of the rainbow in every shade you can find!

Here are a few pictures of mine, dont have any of the venue yet as these are just from the sneak peak…..

@seree

I let the girls choose their own dresses as they all have very different shapes/sizes/skintones/haircolour.

I wanted us all to look and feel amazing and each girl knows what suits them best. I was a bridesmaid once where I had to wear a dress that was actually gorgeous but it was so wrong for my colour and body shape that I looked like a washed-out bell jar when the other BMs looked amazing! I didnt want to do that to my girls, so I let them choose what they knew suited them best.

Obviously I got final say – my only stipulation was that the dresses be floor length and chiffon. You’ll see my girl in navy blue is actually wearing satin, but I liked it so I let her go for it.

As soon as I get the rest of the professional pics I will upload some. My flower of choice for the venue was actually Gerbera Daisies. With there being so many colours, I didnt want an overload of different types of flowers in the venue so we stuck with the gerberas and used different colours.

I might have some non-professional pics of the things I used in the venue – will hunt them out so you have an idea!

Ok found some things.

Here I have our table plan – tables were decorated with white linen but each had a different coloured decor

My scatter petals, used these to add a splash of colour to the tables, looked amazing in contrast to the white

Tealight candles which we also used to decorate the tables

Little jars that I had been collecting, we had plain white tealight candles in these and used them to make a lit walkway outside the venue, and to add a bit of ambiance to the reception at night

Tags we added to our favours, which was little bottles of skittles vodka in all different colours. Our guests loved them lol

I worked at a wedding function once where the bride had picked 4 different colour gerberas in bright and jewel colours and themed the wedding around that. Each of the 4 bridesmaids wore a dress in that colour, different layers on the cake…maybe I’m not explaining it right but it was very pretty and fun.
