What not to do, by Jo Bryant
Don’t have a cash bar
If you’re tempted to blow your budget on party favours and expensive table settings, and get your guests to pay for drinks… just don’t. “People won’t remember a monogrammed napkin, but they will remember having to pay for a glass of wine,” says Bryant.
Don’t forget to brief the wedding party
From telling your bridesmaids exactly what kind of hen party you want to talking to the groomsmen about their duties before the big day, briefing the wedding party succinctly will ensure everything runs a lot more smoothly.
