This is a clever little tip.
Make up bags of confetti and attach to the order of service.
Then you can be sure all guests have confetti to hand and they will think it is a nice touch.
Be sure you advise people where and when to throw it, your photographer or wedding planner can co-ordinate this for you.
Congratulations to all those romantics who got engaged today.
If you want to plan a day to remember then 14th Feb 2015 is a Saturday, and would give you plenty of time to get prepared for the big day.
Here are some touches for a valentines inspired wedding day. I would add just a few touches or splashes of romance so as not to overpower the whole day.
The final addition for the guests could be a group salsa lesson to get the party started.

This is a great idea,and I would certainly love a little treat as I was leaving a wedding.
So the idea is that at the end of the evening someone ( wedding planner) sets up a table of espresso shots, chocolates, liqueurs, sweets or just a nice note to say thank you and a little something for the journey home.
The options are endless – hot chocolate is my favourite!
This is a new website that allows brides to cut and paste the things they like from magazines into a scrap book but online.
You can search by item or colours or themes.
Every item that is on the site has been vetted by the company and selected for approval before adding to their already huge resource of clippings.
So quick and easy to use, it will also suggest things you might like.
Have a go and let us know what you think. Only wish i had thought of it!
This rainy May 1st, and i am searching for inspiration for a moodboard.
I realised that some of the traditional ‘always there’ elements of weddings from the last 50 years are slowly becoming less popular. You can have an unusual one of a kind wedding, whilst still keeping some traditions.
Here are some of the things i love that are becoming less common features.
Sugared almonds -
Cake boxes -
lucky horseshoes as a gift to the bride -
Reading out cards from guests who couldn’t attend! One of my favourite traditions for the speeches that is very rare these days.
Most are there for a reason, and all of them can be modernised.
But the new traditions are good too – like celebrating for an entire weekend!!
Three weeks out from our eldest daughter’s wedding with 170 guests travelling from Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong, many parts of the United States, Germany and of course throughout the United Kingdom I realised expert help was needed…..and at warp speed. The objective was simple….to ensure everyone left walking on air having celebrated the love & marriage of Emma & Mark.
Having phoned Zoe at 8.30am one morning she was with me at 11am that day. For three weeks every day and night from there on in, and at any time, Zoe was prepared to do whatever it took to accommodate my fastidious & challenging standards, last minute ideas – all whilst being just a little emotive.
The end result was a weekend of magical life memories that guests referred to as ‘epic’ and the ‘greatest day’ of their lives……..perhaps after one or two glasses of pink champagne.
If you need the very best wedding planner bringing together first class wedding suppliers that really, really care, then make your family event an absolute joy…….appoint Zoe and experience excellence.

Q11 – Do wedding planners save you money?
They can research and create bespoke lists of suppliers, for example you might ask them to find the cheapest way of hiring a marquee.
Most wedding planners will offer a free initial consultation. After that, where ever possible you should always agree the fees in advance. Often you can use their services and advice, on an hourly basis with rates starting from £45. So, you may be surprised at how affordable using a wedding planner can be.
If they negotiate any deals on your behalf with suppliers they should always pass this reduction on to you, which often covers their fee.
