    Bringing together two families - with two very different sets of expectations for what the big day should entail - can be a tricky part of anyone’s wedding planning. And that’s even beforeyou throw in a difference in cultural backgrounds! Being raised in two different cultures means that, as a couple, you might have different ways of communicating, a different understanding of family dynamics, and a different way of looking at the world. So how can you make your union work, when you’re also uniting two different cultures? To celebrate National Harmony Day, we’re delving into the world of cross-cultural wedding planning, and sharing the top six tips to ensure your celebrations are a rousing success.

    So, your big day is fast approaching and you've been planning for months, talking about it for even longer and it seems like you've got everything covered. The venue is booked, a wet weather contingency plan is in place, the photographer is good to go, the guest list (after numerous headaches) is set, and invitations have been sent - need we say it, the list goes on, But as the excitement of your wedding begins to take hold, your thoughts turn to the people that you'll share the majority of this special day with -- your bridal party!

  4. 5 ways to create unforgettable wedding favours

    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.

    How to include your fur babies in your wedding day

    For some couples, no nuptials would be complete without including their favourite four-legged, furry member of the family (and no, we're not talking about Aunt Edna -- think instead the one with the waggly tail). If your pampered pooch, feisty feline, or even precocious piglet is a must in your wedding day celebrations, we offer the following tips to make sure you don't go barking mad.

    1. Propose with your pooch

    Some grooms say they included their furry friends in their proposal because they thought it would increase their chances of getting a positive response! They don't call them man's best friend for nothing. All jokes aside, if your furry sidekick helped your groom pop the all-important question, chances are this may reserve them a spot in

    Wedding trends are like flowers. They grow, bloom and die out every season. Some return the next year with a fuller crop, while others only maintain a scattering of blooms. We look at which blossoms are expected to reappear in 2017 and those that may have had their day in the sun.
