How To Plan The Order Of Your Wedding Day

What time are you getting married? Due to the recent (we won’t say strange or unprecedented times) surge in wedding postponements you might find that to secure a new date that you’re happy with you have had to accept an alternative time for your wedding. Perhaps you had originally planned for a 1pm ceremony but now you’re looking at an 11am or a 3:30pm ceremony instead. All of this culminating in the fact that you now need to plan for an alternative order of your wedding day.

Doughnut Wall: DIY in Less Than 5 Minutes

The doughnut wall has taken the world of weddings by storm. If you’ve decided to hire or buy a board to position doughnuts on then it’s very easy to set up your own wall. However, if you’re opting to DIY your own board then it could take you a few hours to knock together.
Today’s tutorial shows you how to create a show-stopping wedding doughnut wall in minutes. Yes minutes! All you need to do is ditch the board and grab yourself a mirror instead.
Adam shot this post on the hottest day of the year and the display held up very well. My top tip would be to make sure your hooks are secured well otherwise you may find a rogue doughnut or two at the bottom of your display!

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue? Pin Image

What Is Exclusive Use?

There is nothing quite like the feeling of having a venue to yourself. Everyone seems to be that little bit more relaxed, less like a guest and more like themselves. It creates camaraderie as everyone knows they’re there for the same purpose. To see two people they love, tie the knot. But if you’re wondering “What is exclusive use?” and would like to know some of the benefits of having a venue for your own, then this is the post for you.

Brides Speech – How To Write One – Advice From A Bride Who Did

A quick note from me to introduce today’s guest post from real bride, Ashley. We featured her wedding a little while ago and loved her writing style. Ashley made a speech on her wedding day, which we know lots of our amazing brides do, but there’s just nothing out there online to help and support you. Which is why we’ve invited Ashley to talk about her brides speech today. Enjoy this feature lovelies, it’s a cracking post and I’m excited to hear all about the fabulous speeches you’ll be making on your wedding day this summer.

How To Write A Brides Speech

There’s a paradox hidden at the centre of the Wedding Complex.

It is mostly women who run this industry – mostly women who plan the weddings, mostly women who design and make and sell the dresses, mostly women who bake the cakes, mostly women who write these blogs.

But when it comes to wedding day speeches, women are mostly silent.

Why?

In a highly unscientific poll of my own friends and family, the reasons seem to fall into two camps: fear and/or tradition.

Now, I can’t promise that this article will cure you of either – but it can’t hurt to try. Because silence is no longer the only option.
