Wedding websites are becoming more and more popular with future bridal couples. They are a great way to share the details of your big day, and can also be used as your only source of wedding information, therefore saving you on wedding stationery and postage. Couples don’t have to be computer nerds to set up a “wedsite” (as they are more commonly known) and most of the time you can get these designed by someone else for a very reasonable fee.
A basic wedding website will normally include the following information, but not limited to, and can be customised to suit you.
* Names of the couple
* The wedding date
* Time and place
* Other helpful...
A Green Wedding or an eco-friendly wedding is any wedding where the couple tries to decrease the impact of their event on the planet. Couples plan their weddings by integrating eco-friendly alternatives, such as eco-friendly invitations, flowers, dress, menus and more.

If you’ve attended many weddings lately, you will notice that ceremonies are no longer just your typical church wedding.
There are 2 types of unity ceremonies that you could have at your wedding – The Unity Sand Ceremony & The Unity Candle Ceremony. These ceremonies are both non-denominational, which means they have no religious significance. Some couples choose to have a special song played while they are performing these ceremonies. You can also choose to have a special poem read or you can choose to have a moment of silence.
The Unity Sand Ceremony is ideal for a beach wedding or for a couple that both enjoy the sea and sand, but can be used at any...
The wedding music that you choose is one of the finer details that either makes or breaks your special day!
It is best to have a mixture of music so that you cater for all of your guests – young and old. You know that the music is good when all of the guests are on the dance floor, even the grannies!
You can choose between a DJ or a live band at your reception, whatever suits your taste.
Most bridal couples choose to have a live band / string quartet playing at their ceremony and then have a DJ at their reception to get the party started. But of course – it is your special day and so the final decision is up to you!

I don’t envy people who have to say speeches at weddings. For those who are not so outgoing, saying a speech at yours or a friend’s wedding can be very nerve-wracking! But being asked to say a speech at someone’s wedding is also very special – you know that you are truely appreciated as a friend.

Some people ask their siblings, or the maid of honour to say a speech. It is known that even the bride herself can have her say. (Just don’t...
