I'm so glad it helped! And that picture is fab!!! I love orange - in fact originally had orange bridesmaid dresses but then added am extra bridesmaid & couldn't get another the same so had to sell and ended up buying purple. As you say orange is a lovely tropical colour & flowers like fushia go fantastically. Thanks to you both for the contact advice - I'm giving Maria until tomorrow then that's 1 week since my last email, not to mention the ones before it. I'm going to go back to Paloma. I understand they must be busy, & I don't expect an instant reply but 3-4 days tops! I'm getting really excited now, I fly out 7 weeks on thursday! Distracting myself by trying to organise the reception back home even though that's not for 4 wks after we return!! Between that & 2 young kids tome will fly! Oh & I'm off to Madrid 2 wks on Friday for hen wknd! Hope your both enjoying the build up - we'll be lost afterwards with nothing to plan!! Gemma xx
Babyshaws: By the way, your opinion on the bridesmaid dresses was really helpful to me. The most important thing you said was that darker color shades are more flattering. That is so true! I ended up going with a more flattering style and the color is "mango tango". Orange was not my first choice, but I think it will look tropical and it's a color that goes well with all our skin tones (pink isn't a good color for me). Here is a picture my matron of honor made with Photoshop. Because she tried the dress on in yellow, so she had to photoshop to get it in mango tango, and added pics of me in my wedding dress, my fiance in a short sleeved guayabera shirt, and a beach behind us. Too cute!
