Top Wedding Tips

During the day take some time out to sit back, relax and watch your friends and family enjoy your day.

Don’t over plan. You’ll spend the day making sure the plan is followed and will forget to enjoy yourself.

Everything on the day takes longer than expected. Rather than having a receiving line going into the wedding breakfast, consider visiting every table during the meal to welcome your guests.
