Big wedding topics we’re currently discussing…

Fashion

It plays a big role in the planning of a wedding and the outfit you wear on the day will say a lot about you, so you have to choose wisely. You should also make sure you choose the right outfit for the type of wedding you’re having, so they really need to complement one another.

Photography

Choosing the right wedding photographer is a very difficult task, especially when there are so many to choose from, no matter where you’re based. There are certain questions you need to answer for yourself before you make a final decision on the individual who is right for you.

Destinations

‘Destination weddings’ are a hot topic right now, but what does this term actually mean? You may ask yourself aren’t all weddings destination weddings? Not quite, find out the true meaning and learn whether this is the type of wedding you and your partner would enjoy.

Planning a wedding in the UK?

There’s so much to talk about when it comes to wedding planning, and we’re here to do our best to cover all of the important topics. Some of which include:

There are unlimited options when it comes to choosing a wedding dress. Most will of course be white in colour, but there are many different styles, patterns and textures to choose between, whilst more brides are now opting for entirely custom made dresses. For many it’s all about having a dress that’s entirely elegant and unique.

For the guys, choosing the perfect suit is a must. Again there are endless options and whether you want a cosy tweed suit for a winter wedding, a simplistic black suit with a black waistcoat or light blue jacket and trousers for a summer wedding, you only need to pop down to your local suit makers. You can also choose between rented, off the shelf or custom made.

Food glorious food! It’s all the more glorious at a wedding, well at least it should be. Food should tie in with the theme of your wedding and the character of the venue. A classic British wedding in a historic venue could cry out for a traditional meal, whilst an exotic holiday in Greece may be better suited for a Meze barbecue.

This is a big decision you need to make early on. Do you need a wedding planner or are you and your partner happy to make all of the decisions on your own? Some wedding planners are affordable and they help you save money with their industry contacts, but others can take too much of a cut, possibly forcing you to spend less than you’d like on your wedding.

Wedding ceremonies are just one part of the puzzle, but there’s also the reception venue. You may want to choose one place for both, like a hotel with a registry office, or perhaps you want to pair a historic church with a rustic barn venue. The option is all yours but budget varies considerable depending on location.

Let’s not forget the rings. They may just be a simple band but you should still take your time to choose the perfect set because it’s an accessory you’ll be wearing for the rest of your lives. There’s the size, colour, material and markings to consider.
