An Essex Wedding - November/December 2023 (Issue 113)

HOT TOPIC Our local experts solve your wedding dilemmas POP OF COLOUR We love bright summer colours and want to incorporate them into our stationery. Do you have any suggestions? I’d suggest using one or two different colours along with a few leafy greens. I personally love florals boarding around the information, so it really stands out. Incorporating the same theme through all your stationary works so well. Vicky Siggins | Made in Matrimony FLORAL FOCUS I want my nine bridesmaids to have beautiful bouquets, but we’re on a tight budget. Do you have any ideas on how we can save money? Many brides are now opting for bridesmaid bouquets that can double up as beautiful centrepieces to help with their wedding budget. If you stop to think it’s very true that the bridesmaids never have anywhere to put their bouquets after the photos have all been taken so by simply providing beautiful vases in the centre of each guest table will not only free up your bridesmaids hands for helping with all their extra duties but keeps the flowers happy and fresh in water and every table looks beautifully perfect and completely in keeping with the overall wedding theme.
