Hold That Pose Ė or Forget It

Some couples seem to feel the need to turn their wedding into a show. Theyíre not content with the day being special in itself, and surely by its nature memorable, so they seek out ways to make a dramatic mark. It can work. But sometimes it doesnít, and one of... more

Pets at Weddings

Not so long ago pets never played any part in a wedding, but nowadays if not common itís not exactly rare either. What seems like a simple idea, however, has plenty of pitfalls and really should be thought through, and most owners will decide that a kennel, cattery or pet-sitter... more

A Cocktail to Capture the Mood

Itís something seen at weddings more and more frequently: a signature cocktail that makes a little statement about the two of you, or the day in general. Whether itís served when guests arrive at the reception venue, or is the drink used for the first toast, a well-made cocktail brings... more

The Vegan Wedding

The Rehearsal Dinner Ė Coming to the UK?

The rehearsal dinner, like trick-or-treating, is an American fad that will of course never happen here in the UK. Oh.
