Weddings like this make me want to do my wedding all over again – this wedding dress is just so beautiful. I also love the brown glass vintage bottles used on the tables, and the pale duck egg blue table runner with lace details.
And who wouldn’t want to get married somewhere like that – with a band playing, wooden benches in a woodland clearing, and simple jars of pale flowers. Come on England, let us get married outdoors!
So yesterday I showcased some of my favourite delicate and pretty bridesmaids dresses – today it’s all about colour and mistmatched dresses.
These dresses are still quite girlie, in shades of pink, purple and green, but in different fabrics – which is probably a good way to keep your bridesmaids happy and let them get a dress they’ll wear again.

Admittedly, these aren’t colourful bridesmaid dresses, but I had to include this image for those fabulous colourful tights instead! A fun and alternative wear to add colour with accessories and flowers.
As this post on mismatched vintage floral bridesmaid dresses is one of the most popular on the blog, I thought I would share more of my favourite shots of bride’s with their bridesmaids.
Tomorrow I’ve got more mismatched and colourful dresses in store, but first up a selection of delicate, soft and pretty dresses – like these lightly blushed bridesmaid dresses and a gorgeous blue-grey wedding dress…
Why is it you always come across the ideal items after your wedding? I spent so long searching for lovely flower girl dresses, and now I’m starting to see them everywhere. This one has the added bonus that it’s made with natural organic cotton and has pretty hand crocheting detail. I love it – it’s so pretty and everything I was after for my littlest flower girl.
Available from Pure Pixie and costs about £40.
I came across this pretty little dress today, made from organic cotton and silk, and Scottish lace. For me a little flower girl or bridesmaid in a dress that has an old fashioned feel is just right for a wedding. Some of you might remember this flower girl dress that I loved so much.
The bride’s wedding dress was made from eco-friendly hemp silk and heirloom family lace…
They got married amidst pretty countryside and fields…
Whilst a lot of brides spend hours getting ready, I had just over two hours to cool down (I was so hot from dashing round all day getting the garden ready!), have my hair and make-up done, and get dressed.
I was finally ‘removed’ from the garden and banished upstairs at 2.15pm when Nick and the boys arrived – although we’d spent the morning together, we’d decided we wouldn’t see each other after that.
I never intended to buy a wedding dress, I have a friend who is a dressmaker and I’d always planned for her to make one. But I wanted a little of the fun of trying wedding dresses on, so off I went to Cheltenham with my mum and little sister to try some dresses on and see what style and shape suited me best.
We’d been to two generic wedding dress shops before we entered Cocoa Couture owned by Cara Wagstaff. We were instantly blown away by this tiny upstairs room stuffed full of gorgeous dresses all handmade by Cara and her team from antique fabrics and lace.
