We all know that the bridal dress is the most important dress of the day, but it is vital that your bridesmaids look just as stunning. Choosing the bridesmaid’s dresses can be as much stress as choosing your wedding gown.

When selecting the colours for your bridesmaids, one thing to take into considerations is the time of year you are having your big day, especially if you’re having your wedding outside. There are perfect colours to complement each season.

“Get me to the church on time…” may well be a well-known wedding song, but one of the principle features of most weddings is the transport to get, predominantly the bride and her party, to the wedding venue on time. If you are planning a wedding, no doubt, booking the wedding transport will be pretty high on your ‘to do’ list. Venus Bridal, specialists in diverse and beautiful bridalwear, take a look at the different modes of wedding transportation, designed to turn heads on your big day.
1. Horse and carriage
One of the largest and most competitively priced bridal retailers in the UK, will open a new store on Haven Road near Exeter Quay on the 27th January.
The Exeter store will be their 19th store in total and first new store in 2017. Covering around 4,800 square feet, the store will open seven days a week and offer wedding dresses in a range of styles, from vintage through to contemporary, priced between £99 and £599.
