After an incredible day and some deep reflection, Jess has some wonderful advice for other brides to be! “Use spreadsheets – I’m an avid planner at the best of times but spreadsheets with to do lists, allocated times, budgets, vendor contacts and a timeline for the day was invaluable and gave me so much comfort that everything was organised for the big day. But, you can’t plan everything. I couldn’t control the weather, that my nan had a fall on the day or the band had a change of band numbers but just prepare yourself that anything can happen and role with the punches. One couple gave me a great tip: pick a couple of songs with your husband that no matter what you’re doing on the night, when you hear them you have to meet on the dancefloor!"
