In our third and final part, today of our wedding worries concentrate on adding personality and style to your big day. It’s something many couples really struggle with. From bunting to tea sets, pom poms to lace covers, styling your wedding can start to tip you over the wedding edge.

At our wedding planning workshops we spend time tackling this issue and teaching Brides how to uncover your wedding personality. It can really help you find your own style, stand out from the crowd and ease some of the pressure. We ran these workshops in mini form at The Wedding Fair at Bluewater in February. For those of you that missed them here’s a quick recap of how you can add personality to your wedding.

DIYing is also a brilliant way to stamp on your own style. Our new DIY workshops can help you get the balance right between using the skills of your suppliers verses your own time and talents to get crafty with it. Read our delve into the pro’s and con’s of DIYing here.

We’re really excited as we’ll be doing our Wedding Worries Workshops for as many couples as we possibly can at the Wedding Fair, Bluewater this September (20th to 22nd September 2013).

If you’re planning a wedding chances are you’re feeling the pressure to make your day stand out from the crowd and bring all your plans together within budget. Not an easy task, so at the fair you’ll get the chance to chat with us about how to make planning your big day that little bit easier. From queries about choosing suppliers, making the most of your budget, finding your wedding style to bringing an individual personality to your day, we’ll do all we can to find an answer that works for you.

If you’re stressing about something, however big or small, you can have a free one-to-one session with us at our stand where we’ll chat through your plans with you and try to banish those wedding worries!

We love the Wedding Fair at Bluewater as it brings together so many suppliers in one place giving you the chance to find inspiration and ideas for everything wedding related. It’s all there from cars to cakes, dresses to drapery, favours to photographers, bridal accessories to bands, styling, catering, venues and much more.

The catwalk show which runs at different times during the day is fantastic for seeing different styles close up, as dresses never seem to look the same in the flesh as they do in the magazines. You can also try on most of the catwalk dresses plus Bridesmaids and Grooms can also get in on “wedding dress up” fun as there’s a whole range of wedding wear available.

We’ll also be running a special wedding competition and have discounts available for our full planning workshops so make sure you come over and say hello!

Happy Planning
