How To Coordinate Bridesmaids’ Dresses With The Rest Of The Wedding Party.

A wedding is one of the most special events of anyone’s life. It is a day that will be remembered and treasured for a lifetime. The beauty of that moment depends in a large part on getting the details right ahead of time. One essential detail is the bridesmaids’ dresses.

After Six Bridesmaid Dresses

There is a lot to consider when deciding on the best dresses for your bridesmaids. These are your best friends and you want the wedding to be a happy, treasured memory for them, too. It will be, if they have dresses they are proud to wear.

Planning for an elaborate wedding should begin early. One of the first things a bride and her family should do is set a budget and stick to it. The wedding planners should then allocate these funds, making sure to reserve a generous portion for the wedding dress, the mother-of-the-bride dress, and the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Before going any further with the dresses, decide on the theme of the wedding itself. Is it to be a Valentine’s Day or Christmas wedding, or one held in a special location like a ski lodge or out of doors in the Springtime? Each special event requires different colors and different materials.

Then consider the personalities of each person in your wedding party. Some may shine in flashy, sexy dresses, while others would prefer longer, more-subdued, traditional dresses. After gathering these facts, it is time to begin shopping.

First of all, do consider the season and the theme. A Christmas theme can be the traditional red and green or perhaps a shimmering metallic silver and gold. The dresses don’t all have to be the same color as long as they stay in the same theme.

In mid-winter, bridesmaids and the mother of the bride will want warmer clothes. Accessories like wraps or coats can be of the same color while the dresses can be multi-hued. This time of year may be right, too, for everyone to wear more-traditional, longer dresses.

A Spring wedding though, especially one held outdoors, is an excellent time for your bridesmaids to rival the flowers in variety and color. Now the only coordination possible is a common pastel theme.

If they want different styles of dresses from revealing and sexy to modest and traditional, there is no reason why they should not have them. Don’t the flowers in a Springtime bed compete with each other in style and color and still make a harmonious, attractive whole?

The mother-of the-bride dress should be unique in style and color but still be in keeping with the theme of the wedding. After the bride herself, there is no other woman in the party more special. She should have something that reflects her personality and makes her stand out. She should definitely not be dressed as though she were one of the bridesmaids.

Anyone planning a wedding should keep in mind budget, time of year, and theme of the wedding. These things should definitely be considered when picking the wedding dress, mother-of-the-bride dress, and bridesmaids’ dresses. Good choices on these vital components will go a long way towards making the wedding a treasured memory.

Expensive Wedding Cakes

Wedding cakes, mmm! Delicious! It’s your wedding and you want everything to be in the right order, so that everybody present will be glad and will feel ok. Therefore, you must take care of the cake. What will it be: a classic, traditional wedding cake or something really special, different from any other wedding cake anyone saw before? And then again, how much money do you have available to spend on a cake?

I’m sure you heard about famous confectioners and confectioneries, that employ confectioners that in my opinion are artists, nevertheless. Their imagination is flowing and they are creating delicious masterpieces! The problem is… the better they are, the higher the price you have to pay to have at your wedding the craftsmanship of these people. But you won’re regret it, it will be unforgetable!

They went so far that they even used Swarovski crystals in one wedding cake. Over 50,000 individual crystals were used. It was a masterpiece and the first time Swarovski crystals were used in a cake. Who would’ve thought these crystals would end up among chocolate, cream and other sugar-based ingredients?

Some other expensive wedding cakes imply cushions, an amazing lace work or even details resembling filigree work. The confectionres must really be masters in what they are doing to craft such impressive wedding cakes! Are you willing to pay big sums of money for such cakes? Only if having a unique one at your wedding means something to you. When you look at them, you don’t even want to cut them and give slices to the guests, they’re like a cake you won’t even touch because you are afraid you will ruin all the work the chefs put into it.

Well, those are almost nothing among the really expensive wedding cakes. For example, the most expensive one in the world was unveild in 2006 in Beverly Hills. It is said it was worth $20 million. It was covered in unique and almost priceless diamonds. It was probably not eaten, taken into cosideration it’s value. Of course, it was guarded each second by a very well trained security crew. Trying to take its place, another confectionery and jewel makers make in 2010 another weddign cake, said to be now the most expensive. It is decorated with sapphires and diamonds, but its price reaches only $1,3 million, in comparison to the one displayed in 2006.
