The Best Advice for Wedding Couples!
We know lots of amazing local wedding suppliers who are totally dedicated to providing a fantastic service for you. Over the course of last year we ran a series of blogs finding out about their businesses which revealed some brilliant insights and funny stories from weddings they have been part of. Here is a round up of their best advice for your big day.
Check out our blogs where we chatted to each of them and their websites, all highly recommended.
The question we asked was...
What would be the most important piece of advice you would give a wedding couple?
"Choose someone you like! Your photographer is going to be with you all day long (more than almost anyone else) on one of the most important days of your lives, so it’s vital that you feel comfortable with them. The more comfortable you feel with your photographer, the more relaxed and happy you will be at your wedding, and the better you’ll look in your photos!"

"Have the day that you want -with the people you want-don’t be pressured by others, share your love with those that you love."
Mandy Ritz and Sass www.ritzandsass.co.uk
"My best advice- it would be to enjoy the journey; after you are married, to laugh with each other…lots."

"Once all the preparations have been completed just relax on the day. Everyone works together to ensure that it runs smoothly. If there are any hiccups… well you will laugh and smile about it in the future. You’re marrying the one you love and that’s the most important part!"
Sarah Cole Photography
All relationships are very different, and I believe laughter is always high on my list enjoying each other’s company and communication always.
"Decide on your wedding date and book the venue before shopping for your dress.
Also, most importantly be aware of your budget and let us know this when you come for your appointment.
A word of advice: try not to bring too many people with to your appointment, 2 or 3 close friends or relatives."

"Your invitation is the first glimpse your guests have of your wedding. When you send a beautifully made invitation, they will know how much detail you have put into the wedding and how beautiful it is going to be."

"Always book a photographer well in advance, when we got married, we ran out of funds and relied on wedding guests to take pictures for us, we are sure everyone did their best but nothing like a professional photographer, that's my biggest regret."
Nat Sweet Dreams Candy Cart
"After all the planning & stress involved in the build up to your big day, when it arrives, take a deep breath & go with the flow. If something doesn’t go to plan and you get upset, it will show in the filming.
The best films are when everyone relaxes & enjoys the day"

"Do your research on the companies that you plan to use and make sure you meet them in person if possible or check out their reviews. A group such as Sussex Wedding Services has a wide selection of reputable wedding suppliers. Plus - Don’t forget Wedding insurance for all eventualities."
Vicki from Dazzling Décor https://www.dazzlingdecor.co.uk/
"Allow yourself to be job free on your wedding day as much as possible, but definitely once your celebrations begin. Delegate all of your tasks to others, so that you can get on and enjoy the moment. Before you know it, it will all be over and you will regret missing special moments, because you were too busy worrying about other things."
Anne- Marie Handmade Veils www.bespokeveils.co.uk
"I recommend meeting with your potential suppliers in person if you can. It's vital that you actually like the people who are going to be so heavily involved in making your big day the most amazing & memorable as possible."

And finally... Tim & Steph from Chirpee Flowers www.chirpee.net
"The biggest cliche is everyone will tell you the day is over before you know it...but it's true! Don't sweat the small stuff on your wedding day - Your marriage has only just begun.
