Wedding Planning Advice

"Plan your timings in advance of the wedding for a smooth and relaxing day. We also made sure to label seating at the wedding to ensure important guests have their spots reserved. And don't forget to include the MOG (mother of the groom) whilst wedding planning - it'll mean a lot to them!"

What Made Your Day Unique?

"We had a horse and carriage! It was one of the best decisions I made! The slowed-down pace allowed me to spend some special moments with my parents and flower girls. It was so magical when everyone in the village came out of their houses to wave us to the church. I felt like royalty!"

Wedding Shop Experience

"It's like Christmas day with all our gifts arriving at once, and our guests really appreciated the variety of options to gift us - whether it was an experience, a voucher, or a tangible product. They preferred the idea of giving something concrete rather than just money. Even with experience vouchers, they felt connected to where their money was going. I'm all for embracing traditions! While cash for honeymoons is popular nowadays, I cherished the thought of mirroring my parents, who still have items in their home that were gifted to them on their wedding day, some 30 years ago.

Using The Wedding Shop was a breeze, and the Thank You Manager tool became our favourite!"
