Lauren had five bridesmaids; her two best friends, Jenny and Mimi, Brian’s two sisters Louise and Sammy and her own sister Vikki as her chief bridesmaid.
After struggling to find the dark red dresses she was dreaming of for her bridesmaids, Lauren sent images of a designer dress she loved to a dressmaker, in order to recreate the dress, therefore saving money. The bridesmaids wore taffeta, strapless, floor length dresses with boned corsets and a waterfall train at the back.
The Christmas theme continued as the bridesmaids teamed their red gowns with satin heels and cream faux-fur wraps tied with matching gold ribbon. Lauren and Brian had given the girls personalised goody bags, filled with customised champagne flutes, chocolate and candles as a wedding thank you gift. They also gave each girl a delicate gold necklace and earrings, which they all wore on the day.
