Getting married always requires a lot of planning and preparation, regardless of whether your big day will be hosted in a registry office, English country manor, a French chateaux or on a Jamaican beach. Many people consider getting married abroad as perhaps an easier option; guaranteed weather, pack a dress and suit, invite whoever fancies a holiday and off you go. We've been chatting to flight comparison website jetcost.co.uk about some of the wedding essentials you need to remember for your destination wedding.

Once there was a time when invites were the only protocol for weddings, but now with people's lives being chock full of busy days, you have to give your guests as much warning as possible to make sure they book your wedding day into their diaries. That's where save the dates come in! A simple card with your wedding date on would suffice, but why not take the opportunity to tease your guests with a hint of what to expect on the day.
How convenient would it be to have your ceremony and reception at the same venue? No need for separate bookings or organising transport for your guests. Why should you have to give up your dream of a church wedding just to make everything a bit easier? Well, luckily enough, we’ve rounded up some of the beautiful UK wedding venues that have churches and chapels onsite!

With Ultra-Violet being Pantone’s 2018 colour of the year, it’s no surprise that it was EVERYWHERE at this weekend's National Wedding Show at Olympia, London. We are so in love with this dramatic colour and couldn't help ourselves snapping lots of pictures of it all over the show. Be prepared for some serious wedding inspiration!

Sometimes there's nothing better than seeing a grandiose movie wedding, or watching your two favourite TV characters finally tie the knot. Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, but what kind of bride are you?
Ditch the pastels and go for rich reds, candles and cosy fireplaces...
We love a winter wedding; the aroma of mulled wine, the warmth from the open roaring fires, the rich red rose centrepieces and candlelit ceremonies! We’ve been chatting to the team at Exclusive Hotels & Venues who have the most exquisite settings for your winter wedding.
