Today I have the pleasure in featuring The Great British Wedding – a one-stop shop for everything a couple needs for their big day. The website boasts a supplier directory, venue directory, comprehensive wedding fair list, a store and a stationery marketplace.
I asked Alex from the Great British Wedding what advice they would give to a couple planning their wedding. “The thing to remember when planning your big day, is that it is all about you as a couple. It isn’t about doing things that you think ‘should’ be done, or wearing something that makes you uncomfortable because you feel you should – it should be about what matters to you. If you feel strongly about the environment for example, perhaps choose recycled books to make your flowers; or if you really love superheroes how about theming your day around them (although maybe asking your guests to dress up is pushing it a BIT far…). Make your day unique by finding special finishing touches and fitting it around your personalities – not the other way around.
Above all relax – yes it is only one day, but it is YOUR day – you should not feel like you are out to please others, or feel bad about how much you have spent (or didn’t spend). Yes, make sure your guests are comfortable, but remember the main attraction for them is watching two people they love tying the knot… not the firework finale. Although if YOU want fireworks……”
