Congratulations on your engagement – and congratulations for choosing the coolest musical theme this side of New Orleans! Jazz is the ever enduring, ever evolving art form that champions individuality and forward thinking – and since you two are your own people, and you’re looking forward to a bright future together, there’s no better musical style to suit your wedding. There’s far more to jazz than squealing trumpets and breakneck swing rhythms – it can be uplifting, subdued, inclusive, personal, or all of these and more – so we’re going to break down which styles and arrangements would best score each stage of your big day, starting with…
If looking like lifesize meringue on your wedding day isn’t for you, these options might be…
Every bride wants to feel special on their wedding day. No matter what your style, all eyes will be on you, and it’s your chance to shine. More often than not, brides choose to step away from the traditional frilly frock to don a dress of a different kind. Think colourful suits, printed dresses and gothic gowns.
I teamed up with London’s leading wedding dress alterations specialists, Alterations Boutique, to bring you a range of styles that are anything but conventional. Go on, be bold and outrageous.
When you’re getting married, one of the most important things you can do is make sure you’re properly prepared. However, being properly prepared doesn’t just mean ensuring you have all of your suppliers and vendors stored in your phone, or sending your maid of honor a list of errands that she has to complete before the day. It means making sure that your mind and body is prepared for the wedding so you can have the best time and reduce feelings of sadness when it’s all over. Read on to learn more!
On Saturday 19th May, many of us gave up hope that our invite to the biggest wedding of the year was lost in the post. But, 2,640 lucky individuals did receive requests to attend the special day.
That’s not the first time we’ve been invited to hang out with celebrities either. Together with luxury engagement rings retailer, Angelic Diamonds, we take a look at other occasions where we’ve scrubbed up to walk among A-listers.
A woman’s wedding day is a special moment where she should feel and look her absolute best. Just like choosing whether the venue will be outside or inside and if the wedding cake will be chocolate or vanilla, a woman’s choice in selecting the perfect wedding dress should not be limited to a size two Cinderella ball gowns. The bride’s dress should be a true reflection of her personal unique style, especially if she is a mature bride who knows who she is and what she wants. Thank goodness the days of only wearing white wedding gowns are over, giving the non-traditional bride more design selections than ever in 2018 and a wider array of full figured size options.

Wedding planning is not the easiest task. Sometimes it takes months upon months to plan the perfect wedding day. Getting a wedding planner will make it much easier and prevent the bride from becoming the ‘Bridezilla’. Here are a few bridal must have that will be needed to ease the stress and make her wedding experience a marvelous one:
Your wedding day is quite possibly going to be the biggest day of your life. It is the day where you and your partner commit to being with one another and nothing is ever going to compare to this. For that reason, you’ll want to make sure that your day is extra special and you’ll also want to make sure that you do everything you can to really go that extra mile when you are making your bookings.
Deciding on your bridal party can be difficult; you want your bridesmaids to be responsible enough to organize a memorable hen do but fun enough to keep you smiling during the stressful planning stages. A 2016 survey conducted by hitched revealed that brides have on average 3 bridesmaids by their side on the big day. But what are the different types of bridesmaids and what makes them so great?
We have teamed up with The Waterfront Hotel, a wedding venue in Bedfordshire, to bring you this light-hearted guide.
The one big factor that puts most people off celebrating their marriage with a beautifully lavish wedding is the cost. If you could have the wedding of your dreams on a frugal – but not cheap – budget, would you still go for it or would you wait? The obvious answer here is that you’d go for it! A wedding is one day of your life that you want to feel like a million dollars, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend that much. There are plenty of ways you can cut the costs of your wedding day without cutting the quality of the experience both you and your guests have. So, if you are interested in frugal ideas that can keep your day looking beautiful at a fraction of the cost, you’ll love these!
We’re going to let you in on a secret ladies; it’s not only men who can propose. Shocking, isn’t it? But alas, there it is. No longer do ladies have to wait until the leap year to pop the question. More often, women are taking the helm and getting the job done. In fact, about three-fourths of Americans say it would be okay for ladies to do the proposing. It worked for Lorelai Gilmore, after all.
Planning a wedding is notoriously stressful. If you have any kind of experience at all in planning anyone’s wedding day, you will know that there is always so much more to do than you initially believe. This is a common source of frustration, particularly for the bride and groom, but there are ways to alleviate the whole worry. One of the most sensible things you can do in the last few days in the run-up to the wedding is to carry out a last-minute check. There are a few essential items which should be double-checked at this last juncture.
However you are going to be arriving at your wedding, you absolutely need to make sure that it is definitely all arranged. If you are getting a taxi, then double-check with the taxi company that all is well. Similarly, if you are going for something more extravagant like a horse-and-carriage, be sure to specify the exact time that you need them to arrive. It might even be worth giving them a slightly early time. As the bride, you are welcome to be a little late on your wedding day – but you will probably find that you just want to get to the venue in good time anyway. Also be sure to check the transportation of other guests and the wedding party, if relevant to your day.

It goes without saying that you will want to document the day, so you should be sure to double-check that the photographer is definitely still on board. This is one of the most commonly overlooked parts of weddings, so you should make sure to do this early on in the last few days. It’s also worth shopping around a little earlier for a photographer who you feel you can genuinely trust. Having that trust will make a world of difference on the day, and it will be one less thing you need to be stressed about. Remember that you want the photographer to capture the whole day, so get them to arrive as early as possible.
If you still have money owed to any of the vendors or other professionals, then it might be worth paying ahead of time before the day itself. If you get the financial concerns out-of-the-way early, then you don’t have to spend time on the day itself worrying about money. Especially when that is the last thing you want to be thinking about as you get married! Pay upfront, and you can always seek a refund if someone doesn’t show or the service is not what you expected.
A great tip is to get your luggage taken in early so that you don’t even need to think about it on your big day. Doing this will save you a surprising amount of stress, and it will be luggage weight off your back in more ways than one. This is the ideal task to gift to a bridesmaid or close friend, so be sure to make use of them in that respect!
