You've seen all the photos in the magazines, there is SO much choice.

Consider some of the following:
What time of year have you chosen, are you getting married abroad on a beach, in Scottish castle in December, a marquee in July, your local village hall, a posh hotel in February? This decision can act as your starting point for your style of dress.

Do you have a particular colour scheme in mind for your bridesmaids and the groom's party?

What sort of veil do you want, what length and how is it going to be attached in your hair? Do you need a tiara, or will simple pins and decorated hairslides and combs be your choice.

We have a selection of really top class wedding boutiques at our shows who can advise you on all of the above and much much more!

Masters of Ceremonies

Masters of Ceremonies

A Master of Ceremonies (also used in its abbreviated form MC) or compère is the official host of a staged event or similar performance.

An MC usually presents performers, speaks to the audience, entertains people, and generally keeps the event moving. An MC may also tell jokes or anecdotes. The MC sometimes also acts as the protocol officer during an official state function.

 

 

Wedding Extrass

Wedding Extras

There are some extras that you can add to make your wedding day all the more memorable and set it apart from the norm. Why not try handmade stationery for your invitations, order of service and menu at the reception? Beautifully co-ordinated stationery will be appreciated by all your guests and treasured as souvenirs afterwards. Helium or air filled balloons matched to the colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses can add the ‘ooh’ factor to your reception venue. You can also follow the Continental example and decorate each table with bowls of coloured sugared almonds, or bomboniere as they are know. Tied with ribbons and net they make pretty going home tokens for your guests.
