We wouldn’t change a thing! We had a destination wedding in Queenstown, New Zealand during Winter and I was a bit worried about having it outside and being cold in my dress, but we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. Perfect weather to top off a perfect day.

The biggest questions you will need to ask yourself at this point is who do I want to be in my bridal party and who do I want to be my matron/maid of honour? At When Freddy met Lilly, we know that this is a huge decision. So we want to help you, making part of your wedding planning very easy. That is why we have a stunning line of wedding and bridesmaid’s dresses for you to choose from. With that being said, however, let’s move onto some of the top tips for choosing your bridal party for the wedding of your dreams.

Include the People Whom You Feel Closest To

Ask yourself who you would most like to be standing with you at the altar before you make any final decisions. You want to choose people that you are close too, not people who you truly don’t even like. For example, don’t choose your third cousin to be in the bridal party just because your mom thinks that you should.

Our wedding day was perfect and everything ran smoothly, I wish I could do it all again and make it go slow, the time just goes far too quick.

Was your wedding themed? Did you and your hubby go for a traditional feel or more contemporary style?
We didn’t have a theme. Our wedding was a mix of both traditional and contemporary, bringing together both of our styles. We both really wanted certain aspects of tradition in our wedding ceremony with a more contemporary style reception. We wouldn’t change a thing about it, everything was just how we imagined.
