Wedding Planning #3 – Choosing the Entertainment

What Entertainment Should I Have At My Wedding?

Getting married is one of life’s stressful times. I don’t mean, of course, the day itself and the declaration “I do” (which will be lovely, I promise) but the planning and surrounding entourage you’ll have to deal with to make things just right. Maybe you have to change your bouquet because your Grandma is allergic to the flowers, maybe there’s a guest who can’t eat wheat products, maybe your best friend’s kid will throw a tantrum because you forgot to provide a Wii room!

Then, once you’ve sorted out the fusspots, here come

Wedding Planning #2 – Choosing the Menu

How To Choose The Best Menu For Your Wedding

Getting married is arguably one of the most stressful experiences you will have to endure! Why? Because whilst you’re planning perfection for your big day, you also need to consider every single person who is attending your wedding and how your decisions will affect them. Maybe your Babies Breathe bouquet will have to be re-considered because your great aunt has severe hay fever, maybe there’s a ‘sensitive’ eater who insists on organic, maybe all the kids have ADHD and threaten to ruin the day unless entertained with a creche!

And what’s worse,

Wedding Planning #1 – Choosing the Venue

How Do You Choose The Right Venue For Your Wedding?

Getting married is one of life’s most stressful experiences, because whilst you’re planning every single little element that makes up your big day, you also need to consider every single person who is attending your wedding and how that decision will affect them. Maybe you have to change your wedding bouquet because your great aunt is allergic to Lilies, maybe there’s a fussy eater who only eats organic, seasonal veg, maybe there’s even a whole host of kids who are threatening to scream through your entire day unless you provide them

Love is in the air …..

Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, so we’ve gathered a few facts together that you may not know

  • Every year, around 1000 letters are addressed to ‘Juliet’ in the Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare’s lovers Romeo and Juliet lived.

Top 10 Wedding Trends for 2013

Little bud vases

In 2013 flowers are going to be all the rage much like they have been for hundreds if not thousands of years. Whilst flowers are here to stay though styles and type are not, and in 2013 it is going to be little bud vases lined up down the table, rather than big bunches of flowers that are in trend. The Peony is tipped to be the hottest wedding flower of 2013.

Cascades are set to be huge in 2013, much like little bud vases mentioned above. A vintage

Stress Busting Tips for a Happy Christmas

It’s hard to avoid stress at Christmas, even though we may not be aware of it’s cause.

Tiredness, general overindulgence, lack of exercise and dreading the 24 hours with your parents or in-laws can all lead to stress, according to the researchers.

Christmas can also be a sad time. It’s the time when all those things you’ve been keeping a lid on all year float to the surface, such as the loss of a loved one.
