    5 ways to create unforgettable wedding favours

    Wedding favours are a way to say thank you to your loved ones for the part they have played in not only your nuptial celebrations, but your life to date. Rather than impractical, impersonal favours that will be left on the table when the festivities have faded; we show you five ways to create unforgettable wedding favours that sincerely express your gratitude and are guaranteed to go home with your guests.

    1. Use it

    Wedding favours that can be used in the world beyond the wedding are always a big hit with guests. If you're getting married in the middle of summer, items such as Hangover Kits, wooden wedding fans, customised beach thongs or stubby holders to keep your beer cold go a long way. Similarly, winter weddings may see you providing wraps, gloves or even slippers for tired, post-dancefloor feet. Personalise these presents with your own special message, artwork or design to provide a practical gift with a personal touch.

    3 Best and Worst Father's Day Gifts of 2016

    Father's Day is sneaking up on us again. This is one day of the year we can truly appreciate our Dad and everything he does for us. So instead of rushing out to buy yet another fluorescent tie that will linger in the back of the cupboard, six pack of sports socks or a 'World's Best Dad' oversize coffee mug, why not get him something he might actually use (or even appreciate)? To help you avoid the useless (and give you some good ideas), we take a look at the three best and worst Father's Day gifts of 2016.

  3. 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'. Perhaps this movie highlighted to fathers everywhere, what not to do in regard to the happiest day of their daughter's life.

  9. What are Wedding Details?

    What are Wedding Details?

    I love details. It's the little touches or "details" that make a wedding extra special. When planning a wedding the "details" often come last. They are something that are planned at the end and unfortunately they can sometimes be over looked.

    The big details are things like center pieces, flowers, the cake, the dresses and the bouquets. However it is the little details that get your guests talking and gushing over. The little details can be different

  21. Tips to ensure your big day is memorable - for the right reasons!

    Tips to ensure your big day is memorable - for the right reasons!

    1. Personality trumps Tradition

    Break the rules. It's your day and you don't have to follow a formula. Don't book the venue before you've established the type and format of your wedding. Is it a full sit-down meal, a picnic, an intimate affair somewhere secluded, a brunch, cocktail party or a traditional service in a church? Have fun and think outside the square. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter weddings; make the day all about you by setting the style and scene early on.
