SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW…
Now that the diamond is on your finger and the date has been set, you can start planning your big day, writes Olivia Beaty
Whether your special day is a traditional occasion, or your own personal quirky event, your wedding day is the best day of your life so make it memorable!
From the invitations to the venue there is a long list to organise, but make sure you relax and enjoy the process. The wedding fair season is upon us so why not get a group of your friends together and spend a day visiting the fairs for ideas.
The biggest decision to make is the venue. Are grand hotels your thing, or do you intend to go for a more vintage occasion, perhaps a teepee wedding in the country?
For the brides the most exciting part of the planning process is of course, visiting the beautiful bridal boutiques in the Ribble Valley and selecting their dream dress from the many stunning styles available.
Next come the bridesmaids’ dresses, shoes and accessories, not forgetting the flowers, bouquets, button holes and decorating the venue.
Now to decide on your wedding vehicle, every bride wants to arrive in style – there is a large selection of wedding cars available from vintage Rolls-Royces to glamorous Aston Martins. Or why not go down a country theme and have a white Range Rover, or if you are following a vintage vibe, a red double decker bus to transport your guests?
Next on the list is entertainment, this is key to getting the party started! You could hire a magician to get your guests mingling over a spot of magic.
Every wedding needs a good selection of music too. Wedding singers like James Cockerill will help to make your wedding day unforgettable and he will also sing your own personal lyrics too.
And to tell the story of your day, don’t forget a photographer to capture all these happy moments, then you can relive the occasion whenever you wish.
Lastly to add the finishing touches, the favours and the table decorations. Personalise the favours, then your guests can keep them and remember the happy event. From personalised printed cups to hand-made confectionery, the options are endless.
There isn’t just one way to get married, so make your wedding day your own!
