You will do many things together for the first time as a married couple. And your first dance together after you’ve tied the knot is one of then. Do you stress over choosing the song, not sure what you both like? Is it appropriate? Will everyone like it?
Amy is a returning customer - Fabulous Functions UK did the decor for her birthday party a few years ago - something she'd loved. So you can imagine our delight when she messaged us to say she'd met the lover of her life, was planning her wedding celebrations and wanted us as part of her wedding planning team! Excited doesn't cover it!
Meeting Lucy and Sam at the Kings Head Hotel. was like meeting old friends – we’d communicated so much in the previous weeks. I had a good grasp of the vision they wanted to create and had many samples of the colour tones in the fabric they’d chosen with which to create a gorgeous rose gold wedding theme.
We had the honour and pleasure of working with David and Steph, who let us loose to create magic on their wedding day. I loved that they felt confident in wanting to follow their passions and creating a decor that was true and authentic to them.

Of late I’ve been giving some thought to two questions I’ve seen asked in various Facebook groups, that relate to second marriage wedding dress etiquette:
In our blog, Five alternatives to Champagne for the wedding toasts, we had a rummage through the off-licence shelves to bring you some alternatives to Champagne for making a toast along with the wedding speech.

It’s been the tradition for as far back as anyone knows, for weddings to take place on a Saturday. And there are historical reasons for that. This article from The Atlantic, on the topic of weekday weddings, quotes a rather interesting observation from Vicki Howard, a history lecturer at the University of Essex and author of Brides, Inc, about the wedding industry.
