6 reasons you should get married (and 6 reasons you shouldn’t)

I did it! I got married, tied the knot, said ‘I do’, said, ‘si quiero’, laughed, cried, said my personally made-up vows, posed for photos, danced the first dance, said my speech, drank a glass or four of Champagne and rocked my T-length wedding dress. Now that I’ve been there, done that, here are 6 reasons you should get married (and 6 reasons you shouldn’t)…     Why you should: You get to have the most amazing party with (almost) everyone you love in the world Why you shouldn’t: You will argue with your fiancé lots about the guestlist beforehand Why you should: You look like a princess Why you shouldn’t: You will want to look like a princess every day thereafter Why you should: Everyone tells you that you look like a princess Why you shouldn’t: Two or three people say seriously annoying, irritating things Why you should: You get […]

Wedding Programs

If you choose to have wedding programs, keep in mind that they can be as different as weddings and brides themselves.  For example, look at the front and back of my daughter Maggie’s program, and then at my next bride’s, Kathleen’s.  Night and Day.  Maggie’s were much more formal, going along with her wedding style, whereas KK’s were more casual both in color and printing. And KK’s programs served a dual purpose — yes, I had them made into fans.  Although we had such lovely weather, and were not over warm at the church.  How many to order?  Well, we had several left over at Maggie’s wedding, so I ordered one per couple for Kathleen’s.  We had plenty. After searching the internet for the best program design and for the best deal, I chose a style from Etsy.com  We used this internet marketplace for many wedding items, and I was never […]

The Perfect Honeymoon Suite

The Perfect Honeymoon Suite If you are looking for The Perfect Honeymoon Suite, ultimate luxury, incredible views of central London and a roof terrace space to die for, look no further. My husband and I recently stayed at The Marylebone Hotel in their recently launched Roof Terrace Suite known as The Marylebone Suite and all I can say is I’m utterly obsessed.  We went to stay at The Marylebone Hotel for a night and had lots of plans to go to the V&A, shopping in Knightsbridge and drinks all over the westend to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived an hour early and planned to drop our bags and head out for lunch but our suite was already prepared so we headed up to our room. I have been so blessed staying in some of the most beautiful hotels around the world whilst presenting a wine TV show and over the years as a journalist. However much I appreciate […]

Everything that went wrong: 4 days to the wedding

Yes, a lot went wrong in my wedding planning calendar in the final run-up to my wedding. I guess that’s generally the way it goes, and along the way friends, family and colleagues have been warning me about not worrying too much, things do go wrong, and will go wrong, on the day too. So, what went wrong? Let’s start with the wedding dress. I went to collect my dress, was extremely nervous and delicate about taking it home to safety. Once at home I took it out of its bag and it was wrinkled. Disaster! I rang the shop and they said to return the next day for them to iron it again. I did, and this time I carried it even more carefully, took it into my bedroom and hung it up to have a look at it. And when I took it out of the bag, my wedding dress had […]
