Local florist, Kayleigh Jones reveals her top tips for saving money.

"Talk to your florist and explain your financial situation. Most will offer you advice and suggestions on how you can keep the cost down.
"Some florists can get stems cheaper when buying in bulk, so sticking with the same flower can sometimes cost less.
"Picking seasonal blooms will help reduce the cost and ensure the arrangements look fresh on the day.
"Large flowers such as the O'Hara rose may cost more than a standard version, but due to its size, you won't need to buy as many.
"Instead of having a top table arrangement, why not fill vases with your bouquets after the ceremony?"

We asked Katy Warrington-Banfield from Cakes by Katy to send in her top tips for brides-to-be.

"Get to know your supplier and work with them to create a bespoke design for your big day. Tell them about your likes and dislikes and show them photos of cakes you like.
"I recommend adding a small cake to the top and not cutting it on the day. Instead, keep it for yourselves and enjoy it together after your nuptials. Cake freezes perfectly, so if you have any leftover and it wasn't frozen previously (check with your supplier), freeze it and enjoy it for months to come. You could even keep some for your first anniversary."

Make-up artist, Rhian Glover reveals her top tips for overcoming acne.

"Skin preparation is key when it comes to getting an even coverage. Get regular facials, and cleanse/moisturise thoroughly to prepare your skin. On the day, use a good moisturiser before applying any make-up. A smooth base is essential and will help prevent your foundation from clinging to dry areas.
"A good moisturiser is Embryolisse Laboratories Lait-Créme Concreté. It doubles up as a primer to help your foundation stay in place.
"Use a colour corrector. Opt for a green shade to neutralise any redness, followed by a matching concealer. For good, long-lasting coverage put your foundation on in thin layers to prevent it from looking cake"

Real wedding couple, Lydia and Michael fell in love with their wedding venue.

Lydia tells us: "We loved that St Tewdrics House was a blank canvas in a secluded setting. There were enough rooms for our close family to stay and having exclusivity was a huge draw. We'd visited a few other venues beforehand and even walked in on a few weddings!"

I love bride Laura's wedding dress.

She said: "I chose a Stella York gown called 6701 from Laura May Bridal. It was the first dress I tried on. I looked at eight others but kept coming back to it. It made me feel beautiful and was the exact material I wanted. I initially thought I wanted sleeves, but this style made me feel confident without them. The girls at Laura May Bridal were great at helping me choose something that perfect for me. I accessorised with a stone bracelet from Monica Vinader that was engraved with our wedding date on the back.”

I love Rhian and Craig's love story.

Rhian says: "One of my bridesmaids, Sophie, set us up,” says Rhian. “I told her I wasn't interested in dating, but little did I know she'd given one of her fiancée's friends my number. Within half an hour Craig had messaged me, and when I finally built up the courage to respond we talked non-stop. He asked if I'd like to go on a date and the rest is history.”
"Craig popped the question during a trip to Las Vegas. “We were on holiday travelling around New York and Las Vegas,” shares the bride. “He was planning to propose in New York but got too nervous and ended up carrying the ring around in his pocket for five days. When we landed in Las Vegas, he waited until we were at Bellagio Fountains to ask. It was a big surprise, and the day was incredibly romantic.”

Local photographer, Carmel Teresa McCabe reveals her top tips for booking a supplier online that you've never met.

"Photographers should never have a problem meeting in person before the big day. I believe it's important that you gel with your chosen supplier, after all, you don't want to share one of the most important days of your life with a stranger.
"Never be afraid to ask questions before committing. Ask if and how long your photographer will provisionally hold your date and if they offer a no-obligation consultation before booking.
"Most importantly read the reviews from past couples to get a better insight into the company."
