In my opinion they should.
I love wearing hats or fascintors to weddings. They are like high heels, they make you feel special!
There is always a dilemma of over doing it, or being the only hat wearer.
Most brides love to see there guests dress up for their big day. How often do you get to wear a hat?
Kate Middleton (Katherine) was my inspiration for this blog. I saw her in a fascinator and wondered how formal she would continue to be for Royal engagements . I really hope she continues to wear hats for official engagements.
Let me know what you think.
Often companies do have some movement in their prices but brides aren’t always keen to ask. A better approach is to ask for some extra’s to be thrown in e.g trestle tables for a marquee wedding.
Don’t be afraid to tell your supplier that you are looking for their best prices, and ask if they have any areas where the quote could be reduced.
Often, they will offer you a price that is only available for the week. So tell them you are prepared to make a quick decision and see what happens.
One of the simplest ways to check that you are getting value for money is to get quotes from several suppliers and compare them. Then you can have the confidence to ask for a discount, especially if the prices vary enormously and you have a preferred supplier.
Or if you can’t do it yourself ask a Wedding Planner to do it for you!
Each week we receive emails for advice about how to become a wedding planner.
We have teamed up with the UK Academy of Wedding and Event Planning ( UKAWEP)
The courses are all internet based, and can be done at your own pace.
All courses are offered by E Learning through our Virtual Campus. E Learning is learning that takes place in an electronically simulated environment such as our Virtual Campus and is web-based. It uses a variety of media like audio, text, virtual environments, video, and animation. E Learning, in some ways, is even better than classroom learning methods as it is a one-on-one learning method, it is self-paced and it has an experiential-learning format. E Learning has the capability of immersing its students completely within an environment most conducive to learning. This sets it apart from classroom-style learning.
All you need to access our Virtual Campus is a computer or laptop with internet connection. Whether you are using a PC or MAC you will still be able to have access as our courses have been formatted for both systems.
Upon enrolment you will receive a login and password to our Virtual Campus that will take you to your own personalised online classroom. From here you will be able to access all of your course materials, as well as links to all the other main areas of the Campus such as our Job Board and Article Library.
You will also receive regular emails updating you on what is happening within the Academy and informing you of any new texts, videos or blogs that we have found that are industry specific.

1) Check the size you need for numbers you want to invite – generally each round table will need a 3m sq space.
2) It is preferable to have the tables on 2/3rd’s of the floor space leaving 1/3rd for dance floor and bar.
3) Choose your style of tent – traditional with poles, frame marquee if space is tight or teepee for a bit of drama.
4) Plan where you can site the caterers tent and if you have space for entrance pagoda’s.
5) Decide where you can site toilets. If these are coming on a trailer unit check you have access wide enough.
6) Look at pictures to help you choose lighting (chandaliers/lanterns), drapes, dance floor style ( parquet or chequerboard), floor covering.
7) Discuss power needed by caterers, bar and entertainment in case you need a generator. Consider heaters for the marquee too.
8) Have a wet weather plan. Usually the dance floor space can double up as an arrival reception area for guests if they cannot be outside. Therefore if you do not have the space for a separate reception drinks area, then put the dance floor at the end closest to the entrance.
