Welcome to Guides for Brides We have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response to our first Guides for Brides for Sussex, and have huge pleasure in presenting our second annual edition. Sussex brides and grooms have such a fabulous choice of venues, bridal boutiques, jewellers and other wedding suppliers, all ready and willing to make your day as special as you've always dreamed. We've tried to bring together as many as we can to make planning your wedding day so much easier, and any late additions, as well as everyone in this Guide, can also be found on www.guidesforbrides.co.uk or on our iPhone App. The path to marriage for many couples starts with a visit to one of the many jewellers in the Lanes district of Brighton, before choosing from a local church or one of 217 Sussex venues currently licensed for ceremonies or where the finishing touch at the reception might be personalised sticks of Brighton Rock. No other county is quite so self sufficient when it comes to weddings. Enjoy planning your big day, and our best wishes for all the years to come.

If you are having a veil to complement your wedding dress, then the choice is vast, with a wide range of styles for all. Every bride will be able to celebrate the endless choice now available to match their dream wedding dress. Here are our chosen favourites to look for: •

Quirky designs using tulle to create stunning shapes and forms. There are no limits to these designs.

Veils created with soft tulle which can come in a variety of lengths, with beautifully detailed trims including lace edging as well as delicate pearl beading.

A new look for 2012 are short, voluminous veils that can be worn many different ways; face-framing, scallop-edged veils which fall from elaborate jewelled combs and beautiful full-circle tiered designs with a hint of a vintage influence.

Look for veils which have gold or silver running through the lace, which can now come in 'soft touch' material which drapes beautifully. There is now a new innovation which allows a veil to form a cape, which is perfect for a formal wedding ceremony, when a little cover is required.

Cake Traditions One of the earliest kinds of wedding cake - a wheat loaf baked for Roman weddings - would have been broken over the head of the bride to bring good luck. The tradition of icing cakes comes from the Victorian practice of encasing rich fruit cakes in lard to keep them fresh. Today's wedding cakes are somewhat more appealing, with chocolate still dominating cake sales, however there is a definate return to more traditional fruit cakes, triggered by William & Kate's chosen cake style.

When choosing your caterer, try to source a company that uses local, organic produce wherever possible. Look for companies who can offer fresh, home-grown produce from local farmers and ask them about seasonal menus. As Sussex is home to a variety of local produce, there is no excuse for not 'going local' with your catering options.

Getting married is a great excuse to pamper yourself a little, so why not unwind a couple of weeks before your wedding with some friends at a spa? Go for a swim/sauna, brave a wax, or polish up with a manicure and pedicure. You could make this part of your hen day or even a special treat for you and your partner. Many spas now offer packages for brides-to-be and also 'his and hers' days.

Destination Abroad Island destinations are still topping the honeymoon charts at the moment, and there are plenty to choose from. Why not head to the turquiose seas of the Maldives, where you can enjoy water sports, spend nights stargazing or watch the breathtaking sunsets. If you and your partner prefer to relax, then book a break away in the laid-back Carribean. For the more adventurous couples out there, then why not look into going on a road trip in California, spending time cruising along the Pacific Coast Highway in a motor home.

Boys Boys Boys Choosing a best man is no easy task. As well as being a close friend, he needs to be calm, organised, have good interpersonal skills and be a standup comedian! If no mate fits the bill, don't despair. A good team of ushers can be organised in such a way that all the key tasks are covered. Alternatively, opt for two best men, and dish out jobs according to their skills. 30

The choice of music will reflect your personalities almost more than anything else at your wedding - from the hymns or music you choose for the ceremony, through to the party tunes for the evening. Your minister or registrar will be able to guide you on suitable ceremony choices. Remember, no religious music is allowed at a civil ceremony. At the venue, check that live music is allowed, and if so, what time does the band have to stop playing? When booking a band, make sure they have clear directions to the venue, and ideally, encourage them to visit beforehand to check the facilities.

There are so many photographers around, even talented friends and family, you’d think finding your wedding photographer would be easy. Ask yourself a few simple questions: Is the photographer professionally qualified? What style of photographs are you looking for, and do you actually like the photographer and his/her work? Consult two or three photographers, and make no firm decisions at the first meeting.

Once you’ve chosen your photographer take time to discuss your requirements. Ensure you receive written terms and conditions of business before parting with any money, and ask the photographer if any cancellation charges apply. Consider having a pre-wedding photo shoot. This gives you and your photographer the chance to get to know each other better and you will feel more prepared for the big day. The British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) is the leading qualifying and governing photographic body in the UK and is one of several associations that photographers may join. It’s a notfor-profit organisation that educates, qualifies and supports professional photographers. BIPP qualifications are recognised across the world as a benchmark of excellence, and members of BIPP are bound by a strict code of conduct.

Camera Shy If you are not keen on having your photo taken, ask your photographer to keep formal shots to a minimum. He or she will be able to capture you at your best when you are relaxed. Don't forget though to let your photographer know if there are any special details you would like them to capture - a particular view from the venue/church yard, a special family member or maybe a close up shot of your heirloom ring.

For Winter weddings, how about going for a snowflake themed reception to add a whimsical touch to your big day. Look for ranges of stationery which coordinate with your colour scheme. Are you planning a Spring or Summer wedding? Then why not think about creating invitations and table settings with dainty rose garden inspired themes.

After you have chosen your form of transport to and from the wedding, there is a whole list of options available when it comes to transport for your guests. Try to encourage guests to car share to the venue or note down the public transport options available to them on their invitation. At the end of the night, unless all your guests are staying at your reception venue, the chances are they will need transport to take them home or back to their accommodation. If the destinations are all close together, consider booking a fleet of minibuses or coaches to return everyone safely. You will, of course, need to let them know what time you are expecting the celebrations to end. Why not appoint an usher or even the best man to stay until everyone has safely departed.

If you do not wish to arrange transport for everyone at the end of the evening, make sure you have plenty of local taxi numbers to hand. A great idea is to pin a copy of this page up at your venue, by the phone, so guests have taxi numbers on hand, or why not send your guests a copy to encourage them to book their taxi in advance.

Wedding Fair Diary

There are plenty of wedding fairs in East and West Sussex, run by a variety of different companies. Try to attend at least one, as wedding fairs give you the opportunity, as a bride or groom, to have a personal consultation with up to 50 local wedding companies – many of which may already be on your wish list. Admission to local wedding fairs is usually free and you will see up to 50 different companies on the same day. See if you can contact them in advance to ask them to bring particular samples or stock for you to see on the day. Some couples use the fairs as a way of collecting information and gaining inspiration, others aim to book a number of suppliers on the day, saving a lot of time and effort in going to see them each individually. These details are correct at the time of going to press. For further details, directions and a list of exhibitors for each fair, visit the Fairs section on www. guidesforbrides.co.uk where you will also find details of fairs in other areas and national wedding shows. Our thanks to all the following Fairs for handing out copies of the Guides to all visitors.
