With the invitations out, let the preparations begin! Olivia Beaty discovers what it takes to start planning a wedding

With many couples choosing to get married in the summer months, the wedding season has definitely arrived! Hen and stag parties are taking place and even preparations for summer weddings next year are well under way.

The Ribble Valley offers a number of stunning venues to host your big day with somewhere to accommodate any style of wedding day. Many of the venues host their own wedding fairs which are well worth a visit, and as well as helping you to plan your big day, they are lots of fun, especially when the prosecco is flowing and you’re with your mum and closest friends!

One of the most important factors is, of course, the dress! With an incredible amount of styles available this could take some time to choose, take your bridesmaids along to help you decide. The area is home to many fabulous bridal boutiques who are on hand to help you choose your perfect gown.

Next, on to the entertainment, food and don’t forget the photographer! With an endless list of arrangements, from the flowers to the cake, the preparations can seem endless but you will have a lot of fun along the way!

With everything in place all you have to do is relax, enjoy and say, ‘I do’!
