Green is well complemented by black and it has a fresh, vivid feel. While any shade of green looks fantastic with black, we love this light, “green apple” green.

Coral is super hot this year, and while most people are pairing it with colors like cream or teal, it also looks breathtaking with black.

Since a “bouquet” is defined as an artfully arranged bunch of flowers, a single flower doesn’t actually make a bouquet. However, when it comes to brides carrying flowers down the aisle, whatever she’s carrying becomes a bouquet, and it doesn’t have to be a bunch of flowers. Check out these amazing single-flower bouquets:

Is it cheating if the single flower is composed of numerous flowers? This beautiful single-flower bouquet is created to look like one huge flower, but it’s actually made of numerous calla lilies.

For some people, choosing a maid of honor is easy; there is only one person they’ve ever considered for the position. However, some brides find it a little more difficult, especially if there are several women who would fit the role perfectly. Here are some tips that will help you decide!

Responsibility

This is a big thing with the maid of honor; she will be responsible for a lot of different aspects of your wedding.

Traditionally, the maid of honor plans the wedding shower and the bachelorette party, and handles various other issues. It’s essential that you choose the woman most responsible so you know you can count on her.

Availability

It’s also important that the woman you choose be available for several different events. This includes the dress fittings, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, bachelorette party and more.

This can be difficult if you choose a maid of honor who lives far away or one who just won’t be available often.

Trust

Obviously, you have to choose a maid of honor that you trust. If you couldn’t trust her to keep a secret, always stay loyal to you, or keep her word, then you shouldn’t trust her to be your maid of honor.

There is no wedding etiquette that says that you cannot choose more than one maid of honor. If it comes down to two sisters or two best friends and you simply can’t choose between the two of them, choose them both. Having two maids of honor can take some of the pressure off and make the planning easier anyway!
