Can you have more than one best man?

If, after reading my article on choosing a best man from a couple of weeks back, you still can’t decide which of your male counterparts would be the best to bestow the honour of best man upon, you may just be thinking ‘is it really so bad to have more than one best man?’

Bride And Groom Enjoying Meal At Wedding Reception

Conversations to Avoid on the Wedding Day

A couple of months ago, our very own Jo provided us with a rather comprehensive guide to things that we should probably avoid saying to the bride or groom in the lead up to their wedding.

Dealing with smoking and drinking

Whilst not everyone relishes the idea of a wedding ceremony, more often than not people enjoy the idea of going to a wedding reception because it is just another reason to party. Of course, copious amounts of alcohol and a demographic of smokers is practically synonymous with partying, so a wedding reception naturally runs the risk of drunken behaviour and enough smoke to make people wonder where the fire is at.

Signs you’re having a modern wedding

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe. You’ve probably heard at least part of this old rhyme. That’s because marriage traditions and superstitions from all around the world have staying power. But despite the ongoing cliches the actual practice of such tradition is fading away as time pushes forward. New traditions are forming and old traditions are being gleefully ignored.
