| and finally| your big day It’s one of the most specIal, memorable and, dare we say It, expensIve days of your lIfe. thInk ahead to ensure your weddIng goes wIthout a hItch 1Set the date… or at least choose a season. The weather may have a huge bearing on the type of venue, dress, food and photographer you choose. Start writing it as soon as possible. Only once this is roughly put together can you even think about booking a venue and sending out invitations. This is the time to decide whether you’re going for a small occasion or a big bash. Recent research shows that the average wedding now costs around £20,000 – not an expense to be taken lightly. Martin lewis’ website, www.moneysavingexpert.com/health/ cheaper-weddings has lots of ideas on how to budget and make savings. The location is paramount. do you want a traditional church, a banqueting house or an outdoors setting? it may be the single biggest expense, but it’s a detail that could make or break your big day – and the photographs, too. This one takes time. you can start by browsing wedding magazines, catalogues of designers you like, trawling through boutiques in search of that dream creation and visiting wedding exhibitions which are held all over the country. The internet is a great resource, too. Check out www.supernovabridal.co.uk and www. daisylovebridal.co.uk to see a range of gorgeous gowns. Once you have made your choice, there are the fittings – usually four to get it just right.

If you got hitched years ago but yearn to remind yourself what it was like to make those cherished vows to one another, why not do it one more time? You could ‘elope’ to Gretna Green, plump for an exotic destination such as a beach in the Caribbean, or opt for idyllic surroundings in the UK, such as Cornwall or Devon. say It agaIn… loads of shops, department stores and specialist companies offer this service, but it’s a definite no-no to ask for cash as an alternative. Sponge or fruit? Marzipan? icing? it’s all a matter of taste. Maisie fantaisie has some extraordinary creations to inspire and delight.
