How do you plan your wedding? What is useful and what isn't? Maybe you're just embarking on the long journey to your big day and you don't know where to turn for advice.
To save you wasting your time, the experiences of other couples who have been down this road before and come out the other side, married and unscathed, might be useful to you! We surveyed 56 of our happy couples last year and what they told us could prove really helpful to you.
How long does it take to plan a wedding? Just over half of our customers were planning their big day for between a year and two years. Just over a quarter planned the whole lot in six months to a year, 9% did it under six months (I bet they were exhausted!) and 7% really took their time and gave themselves two to three years.
Where do you turn to for advice? There's always lots of well-meaning friends and relatives around to help you out (whether you want it or not!) and, actually, recommendations were a very popular source of information with nearly half of our customers describing them as 'very useful'. Needless to say, nearly all of our customers (a whopping 53 out of 56) found the good old internet useful, very useful or even 'super dooper useful'.
But even though the internet is such a huge influence these days, there are few brides-to-be who can resist rushing out and buying a wedding magazine or two as soon as they announce their engagement. Yet only a third found them useful and just 16% found them 'super dooper useful'. Nearly one in five of our couples actually found them 'not useful at all'!
Of course, we want your wedding to go with a bang, and we know just how important entertainment is in making this happen. So how much thought did our couples give to their entertainment budgets? Weddings are an expensive business and 75% of our couples set a budget for their entertainment. One in five of them said they managed to stick to it, but just over half said they had a budget until Adam Thomas & The Souljers came along!
A wedding should be a once in a lifetime experience. You want to look back on it with fond memories - and you hope your guests will too. You want to plan it carefully, but maybe there are some experiences which are worth blowing the budget for?
Overwhelmingly, our customers tell us about the fantastic experience we provided on their big day. They will remember it for the rest of their lives.
