Let your bridesmaids exude their own personal style: after all, you picked each girl for a reason! Your bridal party doesn’t have to sport one cut and color. Now affordable dress brands are creating mix and match collections, perfect for brides on any budget.

Shine Bright Like A Diamond

Sequins and beading can add sparkle and texture to your ceremony without being too flashy, as long as you keep dress shapes simple. Bonus: No major jewelry required.

At Any Lengths

Mixing hemline heights lets everyone choose what works best on her body. Plus, it makes the gang look more interesting as a whole. Change it up within the group, or keep the ’maids in short frocks and let your MOH stand out in a longer number—or vice versa.

White Wedding

Thanks to Pippa Middleton, bridesmaids can now wear white! Add personality with accessories in bright colors or gleaming gold.

True Colors 

If you’re having a variety of dresses meet up at the altar, hair and makeup can tie the looks together. Give your girls the same colored lipstick, or ask that they all wear a similar hairstyle.

10 Ways to Have the Trendiest Summer Wedding

1. Pretty Pastels

When you think Spring, think Pastel Palettes! We’re talking about blush pinks, light yellows, and light lavenders. To keep your special day from looking too “Easter”, balance the look with neutrals like gray and taupe.  To execute this trend try dressing your bridesmaids in various spring shades or combine the perfect combination of light hues for the ideal wedding bouquet (see above!).

2. Towering Tiers

Towering Cakes with many Tiers are on the rise. For Spring, layering five or six levels of sugary goodness, is the perfect way to take your special dessert to new heights. These sweet masterpieces are as elegant as ever with bold sugar flowers, detailed patterns and pretty piping.

3. Blushing Brides

When it comes to the perfect spring wedding look, less is more. There’s nothing better than a radiant bride glowing with so much happiness on her wedding day. Bridal makeup should reflect that glow from within. Keep it simple with a soft and natural looking face for your special day. Touch ups will be easy, and everyone will get to enjoy your true beauty.

4. Go Green

There are so many ways to go eco-friendly on your big day, and not only is it good for the environment, it’s super cute too! Reusing accents or materials doesn’t just save money, it saves resources. Work with what you’ve got nearby and what’s in season. Other ways of keeping it green? Light soy candles and recycle your decor.

5. Suit & Tie

Out with the old school and in with the modern day. For far too long grooms have played it safe with their wedding day attire, but I think 2015 will be the year we will see more men expressing their unique style by putting their own stamp on their wedding day. Be on the lookout for mismatched groomsmen, smart casual looks, color, and old school English touches.

6. Good Eats.

One way to be a hit with your guests? Edible Wedding Favors. Sit down with your bridesmaids and have a D.I.Y Party! Giving your guests a special treat is a great way to energize guests when they may need something to nibble on. They can also be arranged surprisingly cheaper than alternative ideas and look ever so mouthwatering.

7. Floral FUN

Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking. But you really can’t go wrong with this one! Add a pop of color to your man’s tux, or pretty floral pattern to your dress! Pastel and floral-print bridal gowns were HUGE on the Spring 2015 runways. If you want to stick with white, find subtle floral details (like the dress above!) or dress your bridesmaids in the print instead.

8. Foiled Invites.

This trend is everywhere at the moment. Think gold, rose gold, silver and copper for either invitation text to small details. A little of this trendy printing technique can add a fancy touch to an otherwise casual invitation. Bold pops of color are also trending. Make your envelope or invite backing a vibrant, colorful pattern.

9. Matching

There are many options for wedding rings these days. Many couples want to honor their marriage and commitment with symbolism by matching their wedding bands. If you like the idea of having a wedding band that is similar to your fiancé’s, but don’t necessarily want match-y-match-y, there are many ways to coordinate your rings. You and your fiancé can select one or two design elements to match, but choose some features that differ to illustrate your individual styles and identities

10. Statement Accessories

For those who aren’t into the veil trend, you’re in luck. Summer 2015 is all about the hair. From flowering vines, to embellished tiaras there’s something to compliment any and every bridal look. Choose a piece that complements the style of your dress, and when you want to let your hair down during the reception, switch up your hair accessory to something more exuberant.

8 D.I.Y Wedding Favors

Wedding favors are  great because they are small items for your guests to take home with them and remember the newly-weds by. If you want to avoid spending too much time and effort , you can buy the favors, but on the other hand, if you want to give your guests something a little more personal, then you can make the favors yourself! This can be a fun activity for your wedding you and your party, so grab your friend’s and Do it Yourself!

Call Your VIP’s

1. After you’ve stopped crying, and enjoying the moment with your new fiancé, you should CALL your close friends and family.We know it’s easy, but don’t immediately post it on Facebook. If your loved ones find out via social media, then you’ll have some pretty upset friends and family.

Get A Mani.

Start thinking of a wedding date
4.. After all the “congratulations!” and “let me see your ring!” people will start asking you when the wedding will be. So be prepared with a time frame you actually want like “next fall” or “early next year”.

Discuss Your Budget

5. Now it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty. Have a finance conversation with your fiancé. This, for many, can be awkward, but in order to start making plans you need to know what kind of budget you’re working with. Also discuss your budget with both of your parents. This will give you an indication of whether they plan on helping out a lot, a little, or not at all.

Enjoy The Moment

6. Take time to enjoy the moment with each other. You’ve just committed to spending the rest of your life with your significant other. Take a few weeks to savor how incredible that is before you dive into logistics.
