Co-ordinating your bridesmaids

When I got married this summer I had three lovely bridesmaids, now one bridesmaid was (still is) expecting which is very exciting, however it made dress shopping slightly more interesting.
We ended up with two of them wearing the same dresses and a beautiful maternity dress for the other one.

Different dress styles and even colours is becoming a lot more popular, whilst brides still want to have their maids co-ordinating on the day, so how can you get round this?
As well as matching flowers why not consider matching accessories

Mine wore the same headbands which looked lovely and provided some sparkly co-ordination between them

And here we all are!

And here are the headbands

These can be made in any colour and can be made to include Swarovski crystal like this red one pictured below

A dinosaur fit for a wedding

We decided not to hire a 'wedding' car as it didn't work with the plans for the day or really fit our budget either!

So we decided to travel in my Dad's car which was totally perfect, and he had a mini bottle of sparkly rosé chilled for us when we got out to take some outdoor pics between the Church and the village hall

At some point in life my Dad was given a cute dino which has pride of place in the car and for the big day he had has own little bow.
So here is the little dino dressed for a wedding, and he's still wearing his bow and I suspect that he will do so for a long time to come
