Children at Weddings

Thanks to Your Surrey Wedding for our latest Hot Topic feature in their April-May 2013 issue!

To have or not to have…..children at weddings

Q: My sister wants to bring her children to our wedding, but I’m worried they might get bored and disrupt proceedings.  I know weddings are traditionally family occasions but I don’t want my big day to be ruined by tantrums.  What should I do?

A: We say….

Getting married this Spring?

It’s March, we’ve had a small taste of Spring already but it’s not quite there yet (I write this looking out onto grey wet weather).

So to brighten up our days, we’ve put together a colourful Pinterest board for some gorgeous Springtime wedding inspiration.  If we can’t have it yet, we can at least spend our time daydreaming!

How can we use the services of a wedding planner on a tight budget?

We’re delighted to have recently been featured in the Feb/Mar 2013 issue of Your Surrey Wedding in the Hot Topic Ask the Experts section!  Read our article here to find out how you can still use the services of a wedding planner when on a tight budget:

Q: Although we’re on a budget, we would still like to use the expertise of a wedding planner. How can we make the most of using a professional, is there certain areas you recommend we get assistance on?

The most important thing is to work out which aspects of your wedding are the most important to you.  Many wedding planners offer bespoke services which means you don’t need to spend on a full wedding planning service to benefit from their knowledge and experience.

Selecting a venue is one of the most important decisions you will make as it will set the overall style and tone of your wedding, and I would recommend that if you don’t have a venue in mind this is one area where a professional planner would be invaluable.

An important factor to consider is that a wedding planner can actually save you money.  We have strong relationships with our suppliers and can negotiate discounts on your behalf.

Do consider the wedding day itself; are you happy to be the point of contact for all your suppliers and deal with any queries or last minute hitches?  This is one area that I strongly believe every bride could do with some help.  Many planners offer an ‘on-the-day’ coordination service ensuring that absolutely everything is taken care of, so you can spend your time enjoying your wedding day with family and friends after months of hard work and planning.

A Bridal Show with a Difference

Having been to many wedding shows myself, I know it can sometimes be a little overwhelming, busy and quite frankly stressful at times battling your way through the crowds and dare I say, sometimes just not feeling that you are the ‘special bride’ that you should be.

So, let me introduce you to a little bit of calmness in your busy wedding planning world.  A touch of luxury, serenity and specialist one-to-one advice….

Possibly the most romantic grooms’ wedding speech (song) ever!

Happy New Year!

We’re looking forward to a great 2013 in the Fine Style office.  Lots of exciting new projects planned that we hope to share with you over the coming weeks and months!

But first, we wanted to share with you the gorgeous video released yesterday by Tom Fletcher from McFly.  He didn’t give a speech at his wedding…he sung it.  Sooo romantic!

So, if you’re struggling to get back into work after a long Christmas break, why not take 15 mins out to watch this gorgeous video.  It’s long but worth it, and will cheer you up on a cold winter’s day whether you’re getting married or not!

No pressure now groom’s ……
