Choosing the theme for your wedding can influence all aspects of your big day, and...
As a wedding planner it’s my job to make sure that each wedding is as good as it can be, and that it’s not the same as the one before or the one I’m working on the following week. I’m a strong believer of letting your personality shine through on your wedding day.
The wedding industry has changed significantly over the last few years, no longer are you tied to a hotel wedding package, where each wedding seems to be going round on a conveyer belt of sameness……these days people are being given the freedom to use their imagination and really go to town on their wedding day.
In my personal onion, I feel the recession as bad as it has been, has actually been a good thing for the wedding industry, it’s made people use their money more wisely and act on their creativity more. The days of huge opulence and everything being done on a massive scale are, well not dead and gone, but a lot less than they have been. People simply don’t have the money to spend on their wedding day like they used to so they are looking for ways to make their wedding day different.
On a personal note I made the conscious decision when planning my own wedding to move away from what was expected of me. I had my wedding day planned, country marquee, church wedding 3 course sit down meal….but thank god I changed my mind and thank god my husband let me. (and my suppliers) Instead we moved the whole thing to Ibiza, cut the guest list by 70% and had the wedding we wanted…………and it was perfect!
