How to choose your dream wedding venue
Quirky wedding ideas your guest will love
The ultimate wedding guest list guide
You’ve been planning and preparing every tiny detail for months, leading to your perfect day. Then, suddenly, it’s no longer happening. Coronavirus has snatched away many couples’ dream wedding day, forcing them to postpone or cancel. The unfortunate necessity of this decision does not make it any less heartbreaking. Depending how soon your wedding was to occur, your old wedding date might sneak up on you quite quickly. So, we want to help make it feel that little bit better.
Back in the day, it was assumed and expected that the bride's parents would cover a significant portion of the wedding celebration. Fortunately, customs and traditions have changed for good. Today, while the bride's parents can choose to take the onus on themselves and the groom's parents also often voluntarily step up to make contributions; most couples volunteer to cover a significant portion of the wedding cost. This is especially done if the families involved are considering taking wedding loans.

In last week’s episode of The Wedding Fixer, Sarah Haywood is brought in with just 6 weeks to save the big day of Naomi and Lee. Naomi wanted to be in control of all aspects of the day. Whereas, Lee was the much more laid back of the pair. In the episode, we see strong-minded Naomi be incredibly particular about her day and completely obsess over the minor details.
Cancelling or postponing your wedding is every couple’s worst nightmare. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the UK government has announced the ban of all social gatherings, including weddings. So, cancelling or postponing has become a necessity for couples with weddings in the coming months.
