Planning Your Wedding

How wonderful! He’s popped the question and you’re engaged to be married!

Congratulations as you take your first steps into your happy future together.

You’re going to be busy over the next few months but don’t panic. There are masses of wedding planning tools out there to help you through every step of the way. If you decide to use a professional wedding planner that’s fine but if you’ve got some time, then plan your wedding yourself and make it a day that’s very personal to you.

The most important thing to do before you start is to set a realistic budget. Work out with your fiancé exactly what you can afford, find out if your parents are happy to contribute and go from there. You really don’t want to start off on married life together with credit card debts and a huge loan to pay for your wedding – family and friends come to your wedding because they love you and want to share your special day with you, not because they want to be impressed.

Wedding place names to treasure as favours

Posted by wed_admin in:
DIY Weddings, Wedding Ideas

Wedding favours can be tricky.  You want to offer your guests a memento of your big day but you want your bridal favours to be classy and sought-after (not thrown away on the guests’ way home).

That’s why I stopped in my tracks when I saw these personalised pebbles at Not On The High Street.  Not just because I thought they’d be good wedding favours.   But also because I thought what a brilliant, fantastic idea it would be to use them as place settings.

They’d certainly make your wedding reception tables look sophisticated and would match in perfectly if you had a monochrome wedding theme.

If I had one of these it would have pride of place on my desk afterwards, keeping my paperwork under control.  (I live in hope.)

You can buy these pebble wedding place settings at Not On The High Street (who also supplied the photograph).
