    Save-the-Date ideas you definitely haven't considered

    You don't get a second chance to make a first impression. Or so the saying goes. That's why if you're tying the knot in the not-too-distant future, it's so important to get your Save-The-Dates right. For many of your nearest and dearest, your wedding Save-The-Date is the first impression they will have about your upcoming nuptials and your new identity as a married couple. Because of this, your Save-The-Dates should be as inspired and individual as the unique union you are about to embark on. Here we show you some Save-The-Date ideas you definitely haven't considered and share all you need to know to create a flawless first impression.

    Engagement Party Inspiration

    When you're still bubbling over with excitement like a freshly popped champagne bottle at your newly engaged status, friends and well-wishers may begin to enquire if you're planning an engagement celebration. This is no cause for alarm. Before you launch into full swing Bridezilla panic mode (save this for the wedding), we have a few tips and tricks that will help you host a successful engagement soireé.

    The ideal time

    The ideal time to host an engagement party is shortly after you've said yes - when the excitement is still fresh and you are just bursting to show off that diamond dazzler strapped to your digits.

  4. The role of your Dad on your Wedding Day

    The role of your Dad on your Wedding Day

    The role of Dads on their daughters' wedding day was immortalised by Steve Martin in the 1991 movie, Father of the Bride, when he portrayed overprotective father George Banks, and the conflicting emotions he experienced in 'giving his little girl away'.
