Our New Look and Feel

Welcome to the first copy of my new look ezine. I decided recently that I wanted to update the look and feel of the website and ezine. So this last month I've been busy rebuilding the site and I do hope you like it.

It's been a lot of work and it's only the first in a list of improvements I hope to introduce over the next six months or so. So keep stopping by to say hello and see how we're improving things.

If there's something you would like to see included withing please get in touch and let us know.

Negotiate a cheap wedding dress.

Following on from last month's tip of the month I decided to add an article on negotiating your wedding dress (and anything else).

One of the biggest hurdles I faced during the lead up to my wedding was getting to grips with negotiating the various aspects of my big day.

The first item that I cut my teeth on was my wedding dress and I'm quite happy to admit I was terrified. I'd never really negotiated anything in my life so Jeremy (my husband) took me on a few trial runs to teach me how.

There are a few rules which you will need to try and figure out and the only real way to learn them is to get into shops and practice your negotiating techniques. But once you get the feel for negotiating there will be no stopping you. Check out my latest article on negotiating your wedding dress and see for yourself just how simple it can be...

Tip of the month.

Consider your guests who are travelling to your wedding.

If you've got guests who aren't from the area and are likely to want to take a few extra days to sightsee, make sure you help them out.

Make up packs for these guests giving them details of what there is to see and do in the area. Include details on the following:

- Are there any local attractions worth seeing? You know the local area better than they do, so don’t assume that they will know where to go.

- Is there anything they should check out that is off the beaten track that they might like to see?

- give them details of alternative hotels in the area and all the various transport links.

- Include maps of the area showing the points of interest etc. These are easy to make up with google maps.

Final Thought

I hope you like the new look and feel and I hope to be able to add more things shortly that will improve your experience and make your wedding planning easier.

Until next month...
