With Vintage and rustic all the rage now creating your perfect wedding could not be easier. Look to vintage clothing stores for your dress, ebay is also a great resource and a great place to pick up bridesmaids dress. Also look to the High Street stores – sales are a great time to grab a bargain or two!

Don’t be afraid to experiment, DIY is a great way to add that quirky, individual personal touch or theme to your wedding and to reflect who you are as a couple. Making your day unique and personal.
