What was your mem­o­rable mo­ment on your spe­cial day? Hav­ing my close friends with me as my brides­maids – they stay in the UK so it was spe­cial friend­ship catch­ing up time. See­ing my dad all dressed up was amaz­ing and giv­ing my speech at the Re­cep­tion . What ad­vice do you have for other brides get­ting mar­ried? Per­son­alise your wed­ding. The more of you and your part­ner put into the dé­cor and the flow of the day makes it feel spe­cial and not “just an­other wed­ding”. Do nec­es­sary and not ex­trav­a­gant – these ex­tras don’t even get no­ticed on the day. Have a wed­ding for you and your close guests – don’t have a wed­ding to “show off” or be the best wed­ding of the century. Have some­one who you can rely on and trust who is not part of the wed­ding party to be there on the day to help with the fi­nal setup touches. Make the wed­ding FUN – I had a pop­corn and choco­late foun­tain for dessert – it was a hit – it cre­ates at­mos­phere and helps the guests en­gage if they do not know ea­chother.
