    WE had our party up on the London Eye, hired a private capsule. Only tips I can give are: on the morning/day- dont plan ANYTHING! I was rushing around trying to cram other stuff in and ended up in tears and super stressed on the evening. The moment we were up there though I went with the flow and realised there was nothing more I could do! 2nd- we got a little engagement book for our guests to write messages in, married couples giving their tips and non marrieds just sweet words- glad we did that.

    3- get hold of the best camera you can and give it to someone on the night to act as photographer, snap away reportage style and get them to have a look atsome great photgraphers blogs/websites as inspiration.

    4- be prepared to feel down afterwards. Id looked forward to and planned a lot for our party as its a year before our wedding, and the few days after felt very down it had already gone and happened. But that was good and made me more realistic about how Id feel post-wedding and also the fact that the wedding is only 1 day, and will be over in a flash too!!

    Most of all: enjoy and take moments with your man to kiss, hold hands and share the moments together.
