What’s your wedding top tip?

My top tip for planning your wedding would be to choose your colour scheme really early on, from your invitations to your bridesmaid dresses it’s really important to get your colour scheme consistent throughout your wedding process.

What’s your top tip for picking your dress?

I think it’s really important to try on different coloured dresses as well as different types of dresses because everybody’s skin tone is different so it’s important to match one that works for you.

What could you not live without when organising your wedding?

When organising my wedding I couldn’t live without my wedding app because it reminded me of everything I needed to do and I could add things I needed to do on the way as well

What bridesmaid trend do you predict will be big for SS17?

Tulle skirts with mix and match intricate crop tops.

If you could do it all again what one thing would you change about your

I would take an evening dress to change into. I loved my wedding dress but it wasn’t practical for dancing in!
