All About Party Bags

After everything you’ve put in to planning your big day, you really don’t want that dream shattered by the shrill cry of a restless child – particularly during the all-important vows and speeches. Every bride and groom has nightmares of crying babies or bored kids being a burden on their wedding day, and likewise parents can be overly conscious of their children’s behaviour and find the fact they have been invited stressful.

Best Man Speech

Best Man Speech

When you are asked to be a best man at your friend or sibling’s wedding, it truly is an honour. Once the dust has settled on you being asked though, it can become a little daunting and the fear can set in especially when thoughts turn to delivering the best man’s speech on the big day. 

When a guy asks their buddy or sibling to be best man, they generally don’t choose them for their oratory skills but those skills might need to be honed or developed a little for the occasion of the wedding. It’s important that the best man doesn’t put too much pressure on himself about the speech because doing so is likely to heighten nerves even further. 


The Ultimate Wedding Budget Guide - Infographic

Weddings create memories for lifetime not only for the bride and the groom but also for the family of both the sides. It’s nice to have a wedding all planned out as per your budget in order to create a wonderful wedding memory for both the families so that no one gets disturbed with the high costs or the hidden costs of the wedding. It’s a best practice to cut down the costs of unnecessary items and keep a fair amount as a backup for some unusual things, so that in case you need money urgently you can have it from your backup savings.

Making Your Wedding Unique

Making Your Wedding Unique

When a couple plans their big day, they really want it to be a day that all the guests will enjoy and remember. The wedding is of course about the union of the couple but inevitably the bride and groom want their wedding to be the best wedding. With people attending so many weddings over the course of their life time, it can be difficult to make your own wedding stand out. However there are ways that it can be done and they won’t necessarily cost a fortune!

Budget is usually a concern for couples as they plan their big day so they always need to be mindful of the overall costs. Small additions and quirky features can become a nice talking point for guests and get them talking for the good reasons!

POP, the new low-cost, long-haul airline, is aiming to be the only current operator of non-stop flights between the UK and two of India’s key secondary cities - Amritsar (Punjab) and Ahmedabad (Gujarat).

The Punjabi and Gujarati communities in both the UK and India have a long history of maintaining strong family connections, and weddings in particular are occasions when special efforts are made by families to come together. By offering low-cost, non-stop flights between the UK and Indian-based branches of these families, POP will be making it much easier for guests to attend such occasions in whichever country they are held.


Trends for 2016

As a stylist and wedding planner identifying trends is something that’s so important to keep on top of. While it’s always important not to go too over the top with ‘trend over timeless’ and risk your wedding photos looking dated, incorporating new and exciting elements can set you apart as one of the coolest, most creative couples.


4 alternative wedding guest books from The Wedding Tree

Do you want something different for your wedding guest book?  Traditionally, wedding guest books are usually in the form of a book with blank pages for your guests to leave their messages of congratulations for you on your wedding day.  

However, after your wedding day, how many times would you look at your guest book to read the comments?  With traditional book style guest books, they tend to get placed on a shelf or in a cupboard and forgotten about.

If you want something different to be able to look at time and time again, here are four alternative guest books from The Wedding Tree:

Don’t Lose Your Hat!

Don’t Lose Your Hat!

If you’re attending a wedding this summer and you’re wondering whether or not you should adorn your head with a hat, here are a few reasons why you should say yes to the hat.

1, Hats add a little something extra to your outfit

Whilst you may have found the perfect dress, it is the smaller touches that really complete an outfit. From a clutch bag, to the perfect shoes to the most amboyant hat, the smaller touches can really bring an out t to life, so don’t neglect them.


Relieving wedding day stress

Relieving wedding day stress

 

We all know that your wedding day is supposed to be a happy day – indeed, the happiest of days. But what if things go wrong? What if you make a fool of yourself? What if something gets forgotten? Few people avoid wedding day stress.

One key step: You can make it far more bearable with good preparation. If you have organised things well in advance (or maybe you have employed a wedding planner to do this), then you should be able to enjoy the day without worrying about last-minute details.

Just to depress you, I’d like to point out that, of course, almost anything CAN go wrong. Your car may not collect you on time, it may break down, tremendous traffic - or weather - may hold you up. The venue may have a power cut.
