There have been many different coloured gowns rocking the catwalk lately like blues and pinks but red seems to be the biggest coloured trend in 2014 which would be perfect for those braver brides.

Its all about the colours of the rainbow so if you love colour go big and bold! Adding rainbow themed objects is a great way to add bursts of colour into your day without going over the top and can look very stylish. For the bridesmaids dresses choose plain white but then accessorize with different coloured shoes and flowers, this looks very elegant but with a quirky twist and will look effective in the photographs.
Everyone wants the wedding cake to stand out so choose a rainbow creation to spread the happiness and consider this fantastic rainbow one for a cake cutting you'll never forget! A colourful sweetie table is great idea and not just for the children!

This is a superb idea as it is a quirky twist from the normal entertainment and creates a relaxed impression. You can choose lots of different sweets from jelly beans, smarties, sherbet saucers to pear drops which will defiantly please the guests.Read More
