Who is man’s best friend?
According to a 2014 survey, 50% of Australians live in a household with at least one cat or/and dog. Given our lives are so interwoven with our (typically) furry friends, its little wonder that many couples are choosing to include them as part of their nuptials.
If you can’t get married without your pooch, kitty, bunny, alpaca, gecko 🙂 then here’s a few things to think about:
• Is your venue pet-friendly? Make sure you get permission in writing.
• If they are participating in the ceremony make sure that you have someone ready to look after them after they’ve done their part
• Think about how your pet will react around a crowd of strangers – will they turn into an overexcited monster?
• If they need calm, it may be better to have them in a wedding photo shoot, either before or after the ceremony
• Consider a pet assistant or dog-sitter to look after your pet when you want to get on with the celebrations
• Keep a stain-remover pen on hand in case your pet leaves a few discernible paw prints on your dress!

For the entire time you are engaged, you will be assisted (or frustrated) by many people
Much as we like to pretend otherwise, so many things in our lives revolve around the finances available
Ha. Trick question. There is no such thing 🙂
I’m borrowing the words of Billy Idol, but I’m actually referring to having an ‘off season’ winter wedding 🙂
After getting engaged, you’ll likely have lots of offers of support from friends and family.
How on earth did it get to be July already? Yesterday it was Easter, and now suddenly its wonderful tax time again.
Regardless of how much planning you do, there are likely to be some little hiccups on your wedding day
Now, I don’t know about you, but I absolutely know I’m not the most photogenic person I know.
I know the statistics on divorce rates are ridiculously high
Awkward and confronting conversations seem to be unavoidable.
I am asked this question quite a lot, and not only by brides but by those planning birthday and anniversary celebrations.
Megan and Josh were married on a perfect blue-sky summer’s day in February 2016!
I don’t think there are too many brides (or grooms) who haven’t begged their partner to elope
For this month’s event spotlight we are featuring Chelyah and Dan’s engagement party, held a few weeks ago in February.
When you think of getting married, do you picture just you and a handful of your closest loved ones
As a follow on from my last post this post delves a little more into the specifics of determining the event theme or styling that you will base all your event choices on.
We all know that it’s important to be yourself, to show others our true self, who we really are.
When someone writes a great article, I think it’s a shame not to share it
Given it’s a brand new year, what are we likely to see in wedding colours and trends
Even having written my last post about living and loving in the moment, I’ve found myself caught up in the ‘doing’.
We are all well ensconced in the ‘silly’ season, and boy, does it get crazy!
Sorry to adjust the old wedding adage, but with most couples feeling financial pressures…
Weddings, birthdays and anniversaries are times to celebrate all that’s joyous about life, but for many there are bittersweet moments…
Many of us have seen Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner…
Have you ever had a blinding moment of inspiration, a flash of illumination on what you were supposed to do with your life? No? Yeah, me neither. The direction my life has taken seems to be more of a slow burn 🙂
