    Have you booked a band already. Having a live band for your wedding is a great way to add life to the party. Try to check I hired one of their bands for my wedding and they were really great.

  • Hello mrscallows2be-We have our venue booked, cake sorted, ice cream booked, make up artist, photographer booked and fireworks booked so far for August 2016, but aside from that we haven't really started doing much else Yet as I don't want it all done too early! Though when we booked out venue in may another couple were after the same date-I was amazed! Xx

  • We booked our wedding venue for july 2016 yesterday... I had a look at the calender when we were checking our date and was amazed to see how many had booked for '16. 

    Im off to a wedding fayre today and i think we will be bookng suit hire and a casino... For the simple reason if we book now we get this years rates! The formal hire told us the suits increase on an average of £4 per suit each april... Which means with there being 3 aprils from now to july 16 we are looking at a £132 increase for the sake of a £50 deposit... That money saving could pay for my bridesmaids bouquets/makeup/etc.

    So excited!

  • We are looking at getting wed in 2016, We haven't booked the venue but we have spoken to people connected with it. I am overwhelmed at all the things you have to plan. Looking at these i guess we better get booking soon x  

  • Wow! I feel so great to be a part of this. Now I feel like a real Bride. image See guys, the point is m done with my bridal gown but what about the bridesmaid dresses? I went through a lot of articles and magzines, still confused. What about this? Should I get something like this. Help me ou pz image

    We are getting married in May 2016, we've booked the venue (includes catering) and the photographer but nothing else so far- but I'm do excited about the dress I'd love to get that soon too! I'm going to give my bridesmaids the option of some dresses in debenhams, because I have5 bridesmaids I can't afford to get dresses made to measure, and they all have different shapes and tastes too! All the decisions have been really easy so far, I love wedding planning! X

  • I too am a 2016 bride and well into planning - got almost everything sorted image check out my planning thread -

    the sooner you book things the cheaper it will be - prices go up year on year!

    I'm having a DIY wedding, so am making almost everything myself image

  • I'm March 2016, haven't booked as yet but have chosen the venue and have been in touch with them.

    I went to the bridal shop today as I dress I've seen has been discontinued and they only had one left. It was £500 down from £1400, size 12 which is my size.

    Got to the shop and couldn't even get it on. Turned out to be a bridal 12 which is actually an 8 image 

  • hi everyone, im getting married on 15/7/16, im quite an organised person, have booked the venue,catering, photographer,cars, my dress and bridesmaid is sorted too, im quite crafty so have taken on a huge amount lol, im currently making paper pomaders, a labour of love im sure, also making brooch bouquets, for myself and the bridemaid.

    Just got engaged a few days ago and we are hoping to get set a date for 2016! Just need to find a venue, it feels way to early to start planning but looking online so many venues get booked up so far in advance I guess I do need to start setting dates etc...

    That's how I'm feeling at the moment, looking at venues over the next couple of weekends for an idea of dates and availability image
