What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Ask yourself lots of hard questions at the beginning of planning your wedding, because it will help you focus on what you want at the start. Define your budget early on, so you know what you can afford and look to ways you can achieve what you want within that budget, then if you aren't happy with what you can have, revisit the hard questions and see if you can make changes. Look to different days of the week, reducing numbers, changing a few ideas and asking for ideas from the people you want to work with. There is so much valuable experience available from a good venue, use it to help you get to where you want to be,
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
