Somewhere between the words “Will you marry me?” and “I do!” you’ve got to fit a whole lot of extra-curricular activity. And no, that wasn’t a euphemism.
Planning an entire wedding is a bit like temporarily becoming an event organiser, only you have no training, no contacts and you probably don’t have the budget to get Maroon 5 to spontaneously appear for your first dance. On the other hand, you’ve got a passion for the event and a handful of knowledgable writers ready and willing to hold your hand every step of the way.Details

If you’re anything like most couples I know, you spend the majority of your time leading up to the wedding half in eager anticipation and half in fervent terror (and not just because you’re a gamophobe). Constant concerns race through the Bride-and-Groom-to-be’s minds; will I look okay in my dress; will it rain; will the best man lose the wedding rings; will an unexpected meteor shower rain down an Armageddon of hell fire upon my perfect wedding and scorch the bride maid’s dress.

When some people hear the word ‘wedding’ they don’t think of a white dress, a blushing bride, silly, sentimental speeches and a tower of diabetes-imbued cake. They think of the bank-busting five-figure number that comes along with it.
