We love these bespoke corset chairs and footstools..
Thinking of an original wedding gift that will last a lifetime? Emily's friend Sarah Louise Dix makes these beautiful chairs and footstools which are ideal if you want to buy something a little bit different. Both the footstool and chair can have their own engraved plaque on the underside and as they are bespoke items you can choose from over twenty fabric and trim colours to create a unique and stunning present! If you want to find..
Ok so we've done the research for you! And here are our best hints and tips for planning your dream weddding abroad....
Think about the type of wedding that you want whether it's a beach, culture, city, countryside. And what type of weather you might want too! Bear in mind who is coming to your wedding - your venue needs to be suitable for children and /or elderly guests!
Send out 'Save the Date' notes to your guests well in advance - particularly if you would like many of your friends and family to join you. Many of them may want to have a holiday around your wedding day, and will need the time to sort it out.
Use a professional wedding consultancy / planner. This really is the top tip - they will do all the hard work for you and make recommendations, saving you a great deal of time as they will know all the local suppliers and regulations. It really will help you to relax on your wedding day.
Make sure you are clear on the paperwork you will need (wedding planner will be good here too!) Without it you will not be able to get married abroad and/or your wedding will not be valid once you are back home.
Book overseas wedding insurance!! Yes really!
Keep your guests up to date with your wedding day plans. Set up a wedding website and use it to give your guests information on you and on your wedding destination. You can also get feedback from them e.g. a list of their favourite songs solves the DJ playlist!
Brides, choose a suitable dress. Most wedding dress shops stock a range of destinatoin wedding dresses and can advise you on the most suitable fabrics for warmer destinations. Be sure to purchase a box to put the dress in so that it travels well.
Well unless you particularly want a Narnia-esque wedding! Anyway, Valley Hotel, situated in the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire, has a beautiful Victorian-style gazebo for civil wedding ceremonies. The hotel has only recently erected this, so if you are planning your wedding for next summer, and an outdoor wedding has always been your dream, then do take a look at the Valley Hotel (on this site)... and (wierd coincidence!) you could always contact Drew Whitfield (see previous blog post) as he is based in the same Shropshire region...
