Mary-Anne Lowe from The Riverstone Estate shares her advice on getting to the Ceremony.
Most bridal couples simple do what they want on their wedding day to satisfy their personal tastes and lifestyle.
Weddings are now viewed as a huge party without the rigid order of getting engaged, getting married, buying a house, having children. Many couples have their order!
Not all bridal gowns are full length or even white, with most brides not wearing a veil. Traditional fruit cake wedding cakes have been replaced with separate cupcakes or chocolate sculptures.
The traditional weekend wedding has now extended to any day of the week which couples are flocking to.
The only real tradition that seems to stay is the bride changing her name but there is a significant number who keep their maiden name.
Even bouquet throwing at the end of the reception has been tweaked. The bride often hands over the bouquet to the couple who have been together the longest.
Brides are also opting to have both parents walk them down the aisle.
Whatever the changes, bridal couples are really personalising their big day that makes it right for them.
