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.

10 Ideas for Wedding Table Seating Plans

Posted by wed_admin in:
Wedding Ideas

As a wedding guest, I always look forward to checking the wedding seating plan board.


It’s a focal point at your wedding reception and will be a gathering point for your friends at the start of the celebrations.


How you choose to present your seating is entirely up to you and should be in keeping with the theme of your day.


Maybe you’re going to go the classical route, and simply feature beautiful calligraphy of everybody’s names in black on a crisp white board.


Or maybe you’ll decide on something a little more quirky.  Maybe antique keys with the guest’s name and table number on a label?


I’m always amazed at the creativity of wedding seating plans – so here are 10 ideas for you to be thinking about for your big day.
