A Maid of Honour Cheat Sheet to Planning the Perfect Wedding

Okay, so we know you won’t actually be planning the entire perfect wedding yourself but once you accepted the job for the Maid of Honour you became an integral piece of the big day.

The question is, are you ready for it?

Maid of Honour checklist for the perfect wedding

To help you help your bride when it comes to planning the perfect wedding we’ve drawn up a cheat sheet to make sure you are the best Maid of Honour you can possibly be.

What Exactly is the Perfect Wedding?

You may have your ideas of what your own perfect wedding day would be but what about your Bride to be?

It’s important to know exactly how she wants her day to go unless of course, you are already well versed in every detail. Discover her dream wedding venue, the dream dress and do everything you can to help her make those dreams a reality.

Assert Your Authority

When it comes to bridesmaids, we all know they can get a little rebellious at times so it’s your job to herd them like a professional cattle wrangler. You are leader of the bridesmaids for the foreseeable future so let them know who’s boss, like Beyonce.

via GIPHY

If one doesn’t like the dress or the other doesn’t like the fancy dress theme for the hen party, tough!

It’s up to you to keep the peace and get them to the dress fittings, hair and make-up tests, bridal shower and then hen party in an orderly fashion and with a smile.

Plan The Perfect Hen Party

Start your hen party plans by listening to your Bride-to-be’s wishes and then completely ignore most of what she has to say.

Hen party Signature Living - perfect wedding parties

Every Bride-to-be may say she wants a classy, ladylike hen party but deep down you know she’s lying. Pull out all the hen party clichés and make sure the Bride-to-be is the centre of attention on the night and you’re golden.

Signature Living Hotel has the ideal group accommodation for hen parties and, when it comes to planning the perfect hen party in Liverpool, they are number one on every list. With everything from epic pool parties to Million Dollar Men nights and even adult-themed afternoon teas, a Signature Living hen party is always unforgettable.

Our helpful reservations team at Signature Living will help you plan every aspect of the most epic hen party ever, so all you need to do is pretend you are listening to your bride-to-be and let us do all the dirty work.

Plan An Even Better Bridal Shower

This is your chance to give the Bride the classy pre-wedding event she says she wants. Inviting all the right people and picking the perfect wedding shower venue is key.

perfect wedding party - bridal shower venue

Whether it’s an at-home garden party or a private soiree in an exquisite city centre events venue you are the hostess with the mostess and there’s no room for failure.

Learn How to Be a Human Shield

One of your most important jobs is to shield the Bride from any possible and unnecessary drama or stress.

via GIPHY

So get out your Wonder Woman Bracelets of Submission and block all that negativity so your Bride will have the perfect wedding day of her dreams, without any of the bother or hassle.

Study That Guestlist

Time to climb the family trees of the Bride and Groom because you may think you already know everybody but you are wrong.

Maid of Honour guestlist - perfect wedding

Your Bride to be will have aunties and uncles you’ve never met and distant cousins you’ve never heard of and don’t even start on the Groom’s side.

You will be the main contact for all these guests on or before the big day so, to save your Bride having to answer everyone’s urgent questions, you need to know names.

Get Involved in Planning

If you know the ins and outs of the big day then you are instantly more helpful when the Bride forgets something or the Groom shows up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

via GIPHY

Find out the when, where, how and who as fast as you can, and help your Bride enjoy the perfect wedding day she’s always wanted.

The Big Day Checklist

Just in case you get overwhelmed yourself it might help to have a small checklist to hand just for your peace of mind;

  • Don’t forget the veil
  • Have a safe place for the wedding band
  • Know the wedding planners number
  • And the Best Man’s (he could become your best friend on the day)
  • Don’t drink too much pre-wedding champagne

Keep it together missy.

Maid of Honour Emergency Kit

To make sure you are ready to meet the needs of your Bride pack our Mary Poppins-style emergency kit with everything you could possibly need on the Big Day;

via GIPHY

  • Sewing Kit – for rips and tears
  • Nail and eyelash glue – in case either should falter throughout the day
  • Make-up touch up kit – because
  • Hairspray and hairpins – for any hair-related mishaps
  • Tissues – for happiness tears
  • Stain removal wipes – for spills and smudges
  • Paracetamol – for your own headache
  • A hip flask – for pre-ceremony butterflies
  • The Brides favourite sweets or chocolates – for low blood sugars and nibbles
  • Flats – because your Brides shoes are fab but very high
  • Phone charger – you are the emergency contact and need to capture candid camera moments

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

After all, this is said and done you will have helped your Bride plan the perfect wedding and given her the support she needed throughout the perfect wedding day. And don’t worry, you can always pay her back by asking her to be your Maid of Honour when it’s your turn to walk down the aisle.

Signature Living Weddings

We are every maid of honours best friend at Signature Living Weddings because we have all the tools to make sure your Bride’s perfect wedding day is delivered.

6 Things to Make a Same-Sex Wedding Stand Out from the Crowd

Okay, so we know not everyone can afford to have Liza Minelli officiate their wedding. Then perform her version of All the Single Ladies at the reception, ala Stanford and Anthony’s SATC wedding.

So, the question is how do you want to make your same-sex wedding stand out from the crowd?

We answer with a useful grooms checklist of all the things you can do to make a splash on your special day.

Start with the Perfect Sten Do

Not a stag party or a hen do, a Sten Do is the two combined and a great way to celebrate upcoming same-sex nuptials.

Sten Party - gay wedding customs

Throw aged single sex party blowouts out the window and get your squad together for a sensational celebration of your pending wedding.

You can book spa days, group city breaks including meals and nights out and a huge choice of fun activities to enjoy together with all your nearest and dearest.

Tailor Make Two Terrific Tuxes

Attire is important and of course, you and your man will both want to be the centre of attention. It’s therefore crucial that you both select an ensemble that will keep all eyes on both of you.

A post shared by SIGNATURE BESPOKE (@signature_bespoke) on

Your suits don’t have to match of course, but they need to be in sync. They should show off your own personal stylistic tastes, whilst still being able to stand next to one another without clashing.

Choosing the right tailor, fabrics, accessories and floral touches will be the making or breaking of your wedding day photos so, choose carefully and creatively.

Pick the Perfect Entrance Song

Breaking away from ancient wedding traditions, at a gay wedding it can be customary for grooms to walk down the aisle together.

Choosing your entrance music, in this instance shifts from the focus being on the bride(here comes the bride) to you as a couple. Therefore, the choice of entrance song can reflect the pair of you rather than either of you individually.

You guys can take a pew and sift through all the songs that represent you as a couple, then let battle commence as you choose a tune you both love to announce your joint entrance.

Pen a Personal Service

Although religion certainly takes a back seat to plenty of modern weddings these days, no matter who’s getting married, many of the services are still considered to be rather stereotypical and outdated.

This gives you guys the chance to flex your creative freedom by penning unique vows and a service that encompasses how your marriage will bring your lives together forever.

Pen personal promises to each other that display to your wedding guests the journey you plan to take together in married life. The choice is yours to make your wedding service what you want it to be, not what tradition dictates.

Bag the Best, Best Men or Women

Okay, we know you’ve already bagged the best man ever, that’s why you’re planning on marrying him we’re sure, but, you’ve still got the role for another best man or woman of honour to fill.

Traditions aside, your best person could be anyone from your sibling to your best mate, and if you share a best friend let them do the job for you both.

Their roles can be anything from a Groomslady, performing as a female attendant to a groom, or Best Man or Woman, the groom’s closest friend and attendant.

This is your wedding and you can do things however you want, steal a few wedding day customs from straight couples and adapt them to suit your special day.

When it comes to choosing your squad, look for those that will help you both stay sane during any stress or chaos that inevitably ensues at weddings.

Share the Night Before the Big Day

Another custom that doesn’t usually apply to a same-sex wedding is “not seeing the bride before the big day”.

For some, an adapted version of this custom may still apply, especially when you have a fashion dedicated partner who still wants his ensemble to be a surprise.

Gay wedding night prior

But for many gay couples, spending the night prior to the big day apart just isn’t necessary. These couples tend to enjoy the night together talking about their ceremony, sharing the excitement of their up and coming big day and waking up on the morning of their wedding day together, knowing that by the end of it they’ll be married.

What’s more, couples who chose to spend the night prior to their wedding together can share the fun of getting ready together. Enjoy a toast to their wedding, spending a few special moments as single men before heading off to walk down the aisle to their future ahead.

A Same-Sex Wedding in a Modern World

Since Civil partnerships and symbolic commitment ceremonies began, formal vow exchanges and public declarations weren’t required by law. This gave same-sex couples the freedom to do as they chose to honour their commitments to one and other.

Gay wedding ceremony

Credit: Shutterstock

Now that gay marriage is legal in many places across the world, more and more traditional same-sex weddings are taking place. The structure of a traditional wedding can simply make the day flow easier, however, many customs simply don’t apply to a gay wedding, and others still harken back to the days when a woman was sold-off to her intended.

Standing out from the crowd, same-sex weddings and indeed any modern-day wedding has become more about celebrating a shared love for another, about committing yourself to that person, rather than simply a legal binding of two individuals.

Start your modern marriage off in style by hosting your same-sex wedding with Signature Living. Our wedding coordinators are ready and waiting to host exciting and unique ceremonies and come armed with years of experience and plenty of ideas that will make your wedding day stand apart from the crowd. 

Plus our stunning city centre Liverpool wedding venues are second to none when it comes to hosting a stylish special wedding day. Let us help you arrange everything from night today and make the most of our unique wedding venues.

Rainhill Hall - dreamy gay wedding venue

Rainhill Hall

Rainhill Hall will give you guys the chance to host an exquisite outdoor ceremony as well as reserves your guest’s dreamy lakeside accommodation, and yourselves a treetop wedding suite.

Or Alma de Cuba can play host to a carnival-style reception and ceremony, with samba dancers, petal showers and much much more.

23 Wedding Table Centrepiece Ideas for Every Brides Budget

As your dream day gets closer and closer, the finer details of your wedding are sharply coming into focus. It’s time to start choosing favours or picking one of the millions of wedding table centrepiece ideas you’ve saved to your wedding Pinterest boards.

But how do you narrow your choices down?

We’ve got a long list of wedding table centrepiece ideas for every bride’s budget, ready for those who want to save and others who have cash to burn.

The Rustic Look

Perfect for those who love the outdoors, the rustic wedding theme is a popular one, allowing the beauty of nature to set the tone of your wedding day.

1) Log Slices

Take a slice of a fallen log and give it a makeover by piling it high with tea lights, pine leaves or small glass jars filled with the sweetest smelling meadow fauna.

A post shared by THE WRIGHT HIRE. (@thewrighthire) on

Log slices can be stacked on top of each other at juxtaposing angles, with trinkets balanced on each tier.

An intricate golden photo frame next to a fallen pine cone or a naked pillar candle with a twine collar are just a few of the wedding table centrepiece ideas you can create from a slice of a fallen tree log.

2) Potted Plants

In keeping with the rustic and humble theme, the plant pot is something we see every day, in gardens and homes all over the world.

Use their simplicity as inspiration for some of the most beautifully rustic wedding table centrepiece ideas perfect for your most special day.

A post shared by Bloèm & Cavanna fiori (@bloem_cavanna_fiori) on

Fill one large pot up with a variety of bright flowering plants or choose a different type of flower per table.

You could even gather a selection of different sized pots together and arrange them in irregular groups, filling them with succulents, sweet smelling herbs or the blossom of the season.

Bring a touch of English garden style to your wedding day celebrations, using the humble terracotta potted plant.

3) Foraged

Some of the most stunning things in life can be found in nature, so why not use them to make imaginative wedding table centrepieces and let your special day stand apart from the rest.

Go on the hunt in the woods nearest your home and pick up bits of fallen evergreen, pine cones, weathered branches and moss to form the most impressive wedding table centrepieces.

Or perhaps forage on a nearby beach collecting driftwood, shells, sea glass and wave-worn pebbles to create a stunning seaside centrepiece.

Stand out among the crowds and give your special day that rustic touch, showing off your creativity and love for the natural world.

4) Teapots and China

Thanks to oodles of charity shops and ways to buy online second hand there are some fantastic examples of China-esque tea sets available to buy for buttons.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Ann Wright (@fanny_annies_vintage_china) on

For an elegant wedding table centrepiece, why not get your hands on a few sets, one for each table, and fill them up with your choice of flowering foliage.

British flowers look the best with sprigs of lavender, roses in full bloom, daisies, forget-me-nots, baby’s breath and fern leaves all reaching out from delicate cups and pots.

Fabulous Florals

It may seem fairly obvious but, thanks to the pioneering work of botanical artists, florals can be so much more than bouquets these days.

We’ve rounded up a selection of the best ways to put your favourite florals together to form some of the most fabulous wedding table centrepiece ideas.

All of which would look simply stunning in our Garden of Eden Rooftop Wedding venue.

5) Bouquets

Choose between spherical arrangements that sit perched upon stemmed vases and larger bouquets that flow out over the tops of elegant crystal chalices.

A post shared by Ivy Floral Events (@ivyfloralevents) on

Alternatively, give your bouquet a modern twist by adding elements such as baubles, jewels, brooches and buttons lending tidbits of your personality to your choice of floral décor.

6) Garlands

For long seating arrangements, make it seem as though your flowers are growing from the table itself by creating a meandering chain of blooms and greenery that snakes along the entire length of the table.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by The Flower Merchant (@flower.merchant) on

Alternatively, for round place settings, gather a mass of your favourite blooms and arrange them in a mound to form the central focus of each guests table.

Both these wedding table centrepiece ideas give you the freedom to place your arrangements in a more natural manner, doing away with the difficult choice of what to use as a flower holder.

7) Birdcages

Pick up some decorative birdcages, get rid of the birds, and fill them with all sorts of flowering arrangements, decorated with strings of pearls, ribbons or fairy lights.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Courtney Blue (@courtlynnblue) on

Whether you wind your flowers, vine-like around the intricate bars or stuff them in until they push through the gaps, the delicate birdcage is an interesting way to display your choice of floral centrepiece and are so easy to embellish.

8) Afternoon Tea Tiers

A charming wedding table centrepiece idea, and one that is so simple to achieve, the afternoon tea tier filled with flowers and trinkets.

Simply place piles of pretty flowers on each tier balanced next to delicately painted china cups, pastel coloured macarons and specially decorated cupcakes.

This will serve as an attractive wedding table centrepiece and something for your guests to nibble at after dinner.

DIY & Handmade

Sometimes, when you want something doing right you have to do it yourself, and no matter how many times you’ve scoured the internet for the perfect centrepiece, you know it’d just be better if you made it yourself.

Use all the wonderful wedding centrepiece ideas you’ve gathered since the day you got engaged and get to work creating your own self-made centrepiece.

9) Succulents

Easy, pretty and so good for the budget, the succulent is the perfect wedding table centrepiece to add an evergreen chic to any reception.

Simply select a few succulents and arrange them in an elegant fashion then top with a gleaming glass cloche. Or set your succulents off with a collection of smooth grey pebbles and gleaming white candles.

The rich green of succulent plants provides an endless list of exciting wedding table centrepiece ideas, easily adapted to any and every wedding day theme.

10) Old Books

Turn those old, long forgotten hardback novels into the perfect wedding table centrepiece by piling them high and topping with flowers, lanterns and candles or wrapping them in vintage laces and elaborate ribbons.

Better still try your hand at book sculpting, transforming the pages of an old book into a literary masterpiece by folding down pages to create dates, words and images.

11) Recycled Bottles, Jars and Tins

Giving the Eco-friendly bride a chance to save the planet, save a jar from the recycling bin and give it a new lease of life as a wedding table centrepiece by filling it with flowers, fairy lights, glass beads or decorative branches.

A post shared by Jars & Twine (@jars.twine) on

Or take an empty wine or liquor bottle, clean off the labels and use for tapered candle holders or fill with long stem flowers and such as lilies and roses. The humble tin can also serve a purpose as they make the most charming flower holders. Simply scrape off the labels and add a lace or ribbon embellishment then stuff with flowers to make a pretty and inexpensive wedding table centrepiece.

12) Lanterns

From intricate and vintage to up-cycled or wooden, lanterns prove to be a popular choice for wedding table centrepieces.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Cotton Creek Barn Decor Room (@cottoncreekbarndecorroom) on

Fill them with flowers that delicately spill out onto the table or flickering candles, alone or in groups.

You can choose to make your lantern the star of the show or pay more attention to what’s inside. Either way, your rustic wedding theme will be perfectly complemented by a well-placed lantern centrepiece.

13) Umbrellas and Parasols

Got an old brolly lying around? Fab!

Simply remove the fabrics and paint the frame in your theme colours then go to town, decorating it with dangling ornaments of every variety. Paper birds and butterflies, twinkling fairy lights, beads or jewels, all will look fabulous for your big day.

You could even get yourself a few ornate parasols with intricate lace frills or embellished paper ones with stylish artwork painted on.

There’s so much you can do with an old brolly, but this wedding table centrepiece idea is strictly not for the superstitious bride.

Extra & Extravagant

It’s your special day, the most important of your life so far, so it’s your chance to be as extra and extrovert as you care to be.

Here are a few wedding table centrepiece ideas that really do push the boat out and will certainly impress all your wedding guests on your big day.

14) Ice Sculptures

The glistening quality of ice lends itself well as a decorative material. Tricky to work with but, in the right environment, there are plenty of wedding table centrepiece ideas involving ice.

From huge blocks containing one frozen flower to carved champagne buckets and frosted artwork fantasies. Real ice is an impressive and elegant addition to any wedding table.

Tip: If your guests wouldn’t enjoy sitting in a freezer for your reception, consider using ice-like crystals to give the same frosty effects.

15) Opulent Candelabras

A more traditional choice for wedding table centrepieces, the candelabra is easily adapted to any theme of any wedding.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Stillwell Events nyc/miami (@stillwelleventsnyc) on

The stems can be as simple or opulent as you like and the material can be glistening gold, sleek in silver or beautifully black.

Add candles to the tops and leave the base bare or choose to embellish your candelabras with crystals, pearls, ivy vines or beautiful bouquets of flowers.

16) Hanging Ornaments

One way to make an impression upon your guests is to arrange hanging centrepieces above their tables. If you have the option, clear up some space and fix a flowered hoop to swing above your guests.

Other options include rope swing seats, strewn with candles, larger than life glass bubbles with industrial style lamps and strings of crystals or mini chandeliers.

Give your guests more table space and your wedding the wow factor by using these unique wedding table centrepiece ideas.

17) Decorative Trees

The delicacy of a blossom tree adds a gentle beauty to any wedding reception.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Event Planner|Decor|Floristry (@qubeevents) on

Imagine them sprouting up from the centre of your wedding reception table, dotted with cherry blossoms, dripping with crystals or draped in baubles and hanging candles.

Better still, this is one of our wedding table centrepiece ideas that can be as big as you’d like as guests will be able to chat around the trunk and beneath the decorative branches.

Personal Touches

When brides and grooms add their own personal style and flair to their wedding day, you instantly know they’re going to cherish the day’s memories for a lifetime.

These are some unique and unforgettable wedding table centrepiece ideas that really say something about the happy couple.

18) Vinyl LP’s

“If music be the food of love, play on”

Shakespeare

Couples who adore music will certainly share a favourite track or two, a special song that reminds them of a moment in their relationship.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by oregon | artist | calligrapher (@kalenrivers) on

What better way to share their love of music, and each other, with their wedding guests than by using vinyls of their favourite tracks or songs from your wedding day to make the most memorable wedding centrepieces?

Each record or its sleeve would sit proudly among smaller flower arrangements, or cluster of candles, the record itself having a special memory or meaning associated with it, privy to the bride and groom alone.

19) Photos of the Bride/Groom

Some guests may have known the bride and groom for years, since birth in some cases, but others might only know them as a couple.

Placing pictures of their younger selves on guest tables allows everyone in attendance to see the journey the couple have been on, before making it to this, the most special day of their lives.

A great way to add something unique to any wedding day and a real conversation starter among guests.

20) Book and Movie Memorabilia

For some, it’s music for others its movies, and at any film fanatics wedding expect to see table centrepieces based on some of their all-time favourite movie moments.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by I Do Devoted Dreams (@idodevoteddreams) on

Whether it’s Disney quotes or Spielberg’s biggest blockbusters, every movie can be an inspiration for some of the most brilliant wedding table centrepiece ideas.

Quirky Table Decor

There’s something bold about doing things differently, standing out from the crowd and making a statement about who you are as people, and as a couple.

These are the sort of weddings where you wonder how the couple came up with such remarkable wedding table centrepiece ideas.

21) Hats

Not just for the head, in this case, the most decorative hat can also double up as a whimsical wedding table centrepiece, if you really put your mind to it. Use elaborate top hats with flowers and feathers stuck in the brim or straw hats decorated like bonnets filled with meadow fauna.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Cheerybaby X Cheerybridal (@cheerybaby_) on

Cowboy hats are great for western themed weddings and eccentric feather headdresses can adorn a Gatsby themed wedding reception. The possibilities are endless when using hats to inspire your wedding table centrepiece ideas, hats off to those bold enough to use them.

22) Skulls

A tad macabre for some perhaps, but for others, the skull can represent something extremely beautiful. Take the decorative day of the dead ornaments used in Mexico or the glittering or artist Damien Hirst’s stunning diamond-studded skulls, both frighteningly fabulous and beautiful in their own way.

Alma de Cuba would be the perfect Liverpool wedding venue and setting to host a marvellous mysterious wedding day, the perfect backdrop for quirky skull centrepieces to shine.

Used as candle holders, decorated with diamonds or stuffed with flowers, human or animal skulls are a popular choice for the quirkier wedding table centrepieces.

23) Balloons

Whimsical and nostalgic, balloons remind us of childish simplicity, giving us a feeling we could be carried away above the clouds on a string.

Add this sense of whimsy and wonder to your wedding day with bunches of brightly coloured balloons, or transparent spheres filled with glitter.

A post shared by Fetti & Bow Balloons (@fettiandbow) on

Chose balloons that spell out words of love to float above your guests’ tables or add baskets of flowers and string nets to create hot air balloons.

The most magical and inventive wedding table centrepiece ideas come from the heart and, after all, who doesn’t love a big bouncing balloon.

Comparing Two Beautiful Outdoor Wedding Venues in Liverpool

When it comes to hosting the perfect outdoor wedding, we have two very different yet equally stunning options for happy couples to choose from.

One which radiates natural beauty, elegance and charm, the other a chic and glamourous venue that boasts majestic views across Liverpool’s city skyline.

Here we compare the two, hoping to help you make the decision about where you’ll host your dream outdoor wedding in Liverpool.

The Heavenly Heights of The Garden of Eden

Perched atop the award-winning Shankly Hotel, sits an ethereal outdoor wedding venue that overlooks the impressive and iconic skyline of Liverpool: The Garden of Eden.

This outdoor wedding venue is chic and glamourous, boasting unparalleled views from an expansive terrace garden and an exquisite backdrop offering striking photo opportunities.

The flexible space gives happy couples a blank canvas to work with, and a variety of layout options for aisle and seating arrangements.

You could host an unforgettable outside wedding ceremony, beneath a blossom-strewn gazebo while your guests look on from sun-drenched seating.

And what could be better than spending your entire wedding day soaking up the sun? Sipping champagne and bespoke cocktails at your outside wedding reception, before watching a glorious Liverpool sunset from an unspoiled vantage point.

Should the weather hold up, your evening outdoor wedding reception could be the stuff of dreams.

Sharing your first dance as a married couple under a clear night sky, filled with twinkling stars. Then, go on to spend the evening celebrating with loved ones, enjoying al fresco dining and gazing out across the glistening rooftops below.

The Garden of Eden has all the elements to host a flawless outdoor wedding and reception, from day to night, and is by far the most heavenly rooftop wedding venue in Liverpool, bar none.

An Enchanting Outdoor Wedding Wonderland at Rainhill Hall

There’s no artist quite as talented as Mother Nature.

At Rainhill Hall, we’ve made it possible for couples to make the most of her work, by booking Liverpool’s newest, and most enchanting outdoor wedding venue.

Rainhill Hall - outdoor wedding venue

An otherworldly romance awaits in the sprawling grounds of a respectfully restored grand country manor. Rainhill Hall is an outdoor wedding venue that exudes classic elegance and charm, designed for hosting an idyllic dream wedding.

All the rage in current trends, woodland weddings are a magnificent way to harness the beauty of nature, tying it all in to the theme of your nuptial celebrations.

What’s more, our whimsical wedding woodland will cater to both outside wedding ceremonies and receptions. Happy couples can take advantage of the stunning secret garden to host a wedding toast and we can even help you organise a spectacular fireworks display.

The 7 Different Types of Bride

They say that planning a wedding is up there as one of the more stressful things you can choose to do. It can bring out the bridezilla in most brides-to-be, but it’s all with the best intentions. All you want is a practically picture-perfect day that everyone will enjoy, great dress, amazing venue, flowers, good weather and last but not least a wedding that feels unique to you and your beau.

It’s not too much to ask…is it?

You may be so laid back you’re horizontal or you’ve ended up swinging from the chandelier in your dream venue refusing to come down unless they fit you into their schedule. There are 7 types of bride; which one are you?

1. A Serial Spender

This is the most important day of your life and you’re prepared to give an arm and a leg to make sure it’s the dreamiest wedding your guests will have ever had the pleasure of attending. Outfit changes throughout the day have been discussed at length and you’ve been trying to get John Legend’s agent on the phone to organise the entertainment for the evening. Budget? You don’t know her.

Giphy

You’re fancy yourself as a bit of a Meghan Markle or Kate Middleton – that red carpet isn’t going to buy itself now, is it?

2. Bridezilla

Knock knock – it’s me, The Moodswing! This wedding is the first thing you think about in the morning and the last thing you think about before you go to bed. You’re willing to sell your soul for the perfect dress and are currently responsible for the local shortage of waterproof mascara. You currently love this wedding more than you love your fiancé.

Giphy

You’re Liv and Emma from Bride Wars combined into one; you’ll stop at nothing to make sure your day is absolutely-100%-without-a-doubt faultless.

3. The Budget Bride

You’re determined to cut any unnecessary costs to make sure your big day doesn’t end up quite literally breaking the bank. You’ve searched Pinterest high and low for the best DIY wedding hacks and have already started searching for the perfect second-hand gown on Etsy. Mum has agreed to tackle the cake and you’ve got all your bridesmaids on hand to help craft your own table decorations. Girl, you’ve got this!

Giphy

You’re a Phoebe from Friends getting married in the snow or a Miranda from Sex and the City tying the knot in the park in front of all her nearest and dearest.

4. A Laid Back Lady

You’ve put everyone on edge with how un-bothered you are, but you just don’t care. You know you’re going to be exchanging vows with your significant other one way or another. It’s not really an issue that you’ve left it too late to book the caterers; you’re happy to just order pizza for everyone. That’s if they turn up. You forgot to send your invites out in time, so just posted it on Facebook instead.

Giphy

You’re more of a Pam from The Office when she sneaks off with Jim to seal the deal. You’re not bothered what the celebrations are as long as everyone’s there to celebrate with you at some point.

5. The Life and Soul

Forget the ceremony, you’re here for the party! The hen ‘do was probably the highlight of this whole wedding shebang, but you can’t wait to carry on the celebrations as soon as the formalities are over. You’ve put more planning into the evening’s playlist than what flowers you carried down the aisle and your bridesmaids can’t wait to bust out the moves you’ve all been practising for weeks.

Tenor

You’re a Lillian from Bridesmaids, but only once she’s dropped the bridezilla routine and lets loose with her best mates.

6. Miss Meticulous

Clipboard? Check. Colour coded spreadsheet? Check. Walkie-talkies and headset? Check. The planning started before you were even engaged and you’ve put the Maid of Honour out of a job because you’ve already arranged your own hen party.

Giphy

You’re a Monica from Friends through and through, and the prospect of all that new wedding stationary feels much more exciting than actually getting hitched.

7. The Hopeless Romantic

Your head is in the clouds, the stars are in your eyes and birds are tweeting on your shoulder. We’ll just call you Cinderella. You’ve watched all your favourite romcoms throughout the entire process and the wedding scrapbook you made when you were 11 has been used as a very serious and detailed reference. You’re a walking, talking bridal stereotype – and you love it!

Giphy

You are most certainly a Charlotte from Sex and the City. You’ve been dreaming of this moment since you were little and no amount of stress or any obstacle can pop your lovey-dovey bubble.

No matter what type of bride you are, what really matters is that you’ll get to marry the one you love on your big day. If you’re looking for inspiration on where to tie the knot, then look no further than these five beautiful places to get married.

Halloween Wedding Ideas for a Wickedly Wonderful Wedding Day

Just for those of us who love the idea of a Halloween Wedding we’ve put together a handy guide to throwing the perfect Halloween themed day of your dreams.

Everything from ghoulishly gorgeous dresses to frighteningly fabulous flowers alongside all the bizarre and brilliant ways you can make your Halloween wedding everything you ever wished for.

Creepy Cake Ideas

Your guests will remember a lot from your Halloween wedding day, mainly your dress but in close second comes the cake. This is a chance to play with your creativity, and your chosen cake designers skills too.

Ask them to help make your spooky day of dreams come true by fashioning a deliciously devilish Halloween themed wedding cake that looks both tempting and terrifying at the same time.

 

Channel your favourite Halloween movie like The Nightmare Before Christmas or go all out hellish with skulls, red roses, stained glass and black icing.

You could even go for a natural approach taking all the golden rusted colours of autumn and using them to decorate and adorn your haunting Halloween wedding cake.

As the centrepiece of your special day, Halloween wedding your cake is a chance to impress your guests with your bold choice and creative wedding day choices.

Heavenly Halloween Wedding Dresses

A Halloween wedding really gives you the opportunity to step outside the conventional wedding dress box and chose from an array of stylish alternatives.

For floor sweeping glamour choose endless black and grey tulle, long lace sleeves and intricate black beading.

Or instead, invoke your favourite gothic glamour icon and chose a Morticia style fishtail or the rich royal hues worn in medieval times.

You needn’t choose all black either. Alternatively, you can accent an off-white gown with black detailing and give an otherwise conventional wedding dress the Halloween edge.

The elaborate styling of traditional Spanish attire lends itself well to a Halloween wedding, with black lace veils, square-necked gowns and button up gloves.

There’s a haunting beauty in the darker details of a Halloween wedding and your dress will speak volumes about the mood you want to set.

Devilish Décor Ideas

Just because you’ve picked Halloween as your wedding theme, the wedding venue needn’t be decked out like a kids Halloween party. Opt instead to go for dark and decadent glamour with black elaborate candelabras, hanging lanterns, autumn coloured fabrics and delicate tree branches wrapped in chiffon.

Set the mood with plenty of natural candlelight and dress your tables with playful carved pumpkin or skull place settings.

Bring the outside in and turn your wedding venue into an enchanted forest complete with blackbirds in hanging faux tree branches, evergreen centrepieces and leaf-strewn floors.

Your Halloween wedding needn’t be all about black, red-purple, orange, gold and greens work just as well to set the mysterious mood.

Bewitch your guests with an enchanting Halloween wedding day decor on this the most important day of your lives.

Mysterious Masquerade Reception

Keeping your guests from attending your Halloween wedding in fancy dress is simple if your reception theme is an elegant masquerade ball.

Encourage your guests to stick to your colour scheme and theme by asking them to come to a ball dressed in black tie, channelling masquerade balls of the 19th century.

Your buffet could include a selection of trick or treat style sweets and cocktails could be white and black Russians, Zombies and Champagne cocktails with red and black liquors.

Book your entertainment to be more classical than a DJ or find a band who will perform all your favourite rock and roll classics.

Frighteningly Fabulous Flowers

Celebrate nature in the floral arrangements for the perfect Halloween wedding and choose evergreens, pale succulents and feathers for bouquets and pin holes.

Thistles, ferns and lavenders will give a pop of colour whilst keeping things natural and dark.

And of course, a large bouquet of red roses wrapped in fake ivy will always look elegantly enchanting.

Tie everything up with rich ribbons, dark lace or rustic parcel string and add gleaming red jewels or strings of shining pearls for some extra bling.
