Recent years has seen simple, strapless gowns dominate the wedding scene, but sleeves and straps are now back with a vengeance. Looking for demure vintage? Check out lace bodice options, with high necks and long sleeves. For fifties chic, halternecks are the way to go. Hippy chick? Loose cap-sleeved gowns could be your look. And don't assume you have to go long on length any more. Increasingly, we're seeing knee-length frocks, with frothy petticoats peeping out from underneath. If that's not your style, opt for a tea length dress, which comes to mid-calf - a little more demure but still short enough to show of those fabulous shoes! If you're going long, check out the latest fan or fishtail style skirts which hug the hips and flair out below the knee.

Rachel and John knew they wanted their wedding day to reflect their shared love of animals, old buildings and music, and their very special venue helped them achieve all of those dreams. “We were stunned by Cleeve House’s beauty, and the fact that we could stay at the house, have the ceremony and the after party there was just perfect. They also seemed open to all our ‘odd’ ideas and were happy to accommodate all our wishes, including allowing me to have my lurcher to stay with me the whole weekend!” The ‘odd’ ideas included having the ring delivered to the best man by a harris hawk and a falconry display for the guests while the photos were being taken! One of the biggest surprises came in the evening, when John got up and joined the live band. “It was a gift from one of our guests - he set up the band just for our wedding and, as a surprise, he taught john how to play the double bass and they performed a surprise track just for me!” A lovely end to a very lovely day!

Gifts galore for your guests Feel embarrassed about sending out a list of things you want? Try not to worry. Your guests will want to bring you a present, and they'd much rather know what you want! Many couples take a mix and match approach to their wedding list, with a number of lists held at different shops. As well as a department store, ask smaller interiors shops if they offer a wedding list, or build your own online. Don't feel it has to be something for the home. Your guests may be happy to fill your fridge via your local deli for your return from honeymoon, or buy you an experience day instead. If you still feel uncomfortable with the concept, set up a charitable gift list. Find a charity that means something to you both.

Hat Headlines Top tips for choosing the perfect headwear Head for a specialist milliner. It may be a little more expensive than the high street, but they’ll be able to create something unique to reflect the wearer’s personality and tone perfectly with the outfit. Fascinators are still very much in vogue and offer a playful, easy-to-wear alternative to a more traditional hat. Keep a balance. An embellished outfit will need a simple hat - and vice versa! Big brims are best avoided for the vertically challenged! Kissing friends and relatives is tricky from underneath a large brimmed hat.

Follow our guide to choosing the perfect music for your wedding

Music Feature Choosing the music for your wedding is one of the most enjoyable but time consuming parts of the planning process. The only way to really judge live music is to listen to it in a similar environment, and it simply isn't possible to go to another wedding just to see if the DJ or band have got the guests dancing, or whether the string quartet is playing appropriate pieces for the situation. Wedding Fairs are a good opportunity to meet local DJs and listen to individual musicians such as harpists, but there just isn't space for bands or ensembles, in which case a demo tape, which should be readily available, may be the best you can hope for.

For over 100 years the most popular processional music for church weddings has been Wagner's Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin (1850). This piece is often known as "Here Comes The Bride".

www.guidesforbrides.co.uk


Musical choices The most popular options for your reception Make a list of all the points of the day when you could have music. At the very least, you'll need music for the ceremony and for the evening entertainment. But don't feel you have to stop there. There's a whole world of musical possibilities to transform your wedding day. Nothing beats a good DJ when it comes to getting the party started! It is a great idea to compile a list of your favourite songs, but expect the professional to read the mood of the room and choose what to play next accordingly. Prices will start from around £250. Live bands continue to be the most popular choice for wedding receptions. They generally play three 45 minute slots and will usually offer the choice of a DJ or pre-recorded music to play during breaks to keep the party going. Prices range enormously, from £250 - £3500. Everyone loves a little karaoke, and scheduling a session into your evening entertainment will be sure to prove a hit with your guests. It's a good idea to limit turns, and opt for only four or five songs at time, interspersed with professional music from a band or a disco. The lilting music of a harp will create a romantic mood for your reception, and may not be as expensive as you think. Prices start from around £150 per hour. A harpist is a great choice for the ceremony, as well as providing beautiful music for your drinks reception. String quartets, consisting of two violins, a viola and a cello, are the quintessential accompaniment to a traditional English wedding. Most of their repertoire will be classic music, however many are happy to play some more modern numbers if you prefer.

Hymns for Church Weddings Some of your favourites If you're marrying in church, you'll need to choose at least two hymns, and possibly up to four, depending on the length of the service. Your minister or the church music director will be able to make suggestions, but here are some of the most popular choices. If most of your guests aren't regular church goers, try to stick to more well known choices with easy tunes. Remember, some words are associated with more than one tune, so do make sure that the organist knows which tune you're expecting. These are a few of the most popular choices for church weddings:All Things Bright and Beautiful Come Down O Love Divine Father Hear the Prayer We Offer Give Me Joy in my Heart Love Divine, All Loves Excelling Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us Lord of all Hopefulness Make Me a Channel of your Peace Morning has Broken One More Step Along the World I Go O, Praise Ye the Lord Now Thank We all our God Praise my Soul, the King of Heaven The King of Love my Shepherd is Lord of the Dance For civil ceremonies, you won't be allowed songs or music with any religious connotations. If you're not sure whether a certain piece is allowed, check with the registrar beforehand to avoid disappointment on the day. Look on our website for non-religious songs: www.guidesforbrides.co.uk

Music...the small print Keeping it legal It is not uncommon for couples to have a last minute panic to keep to the right side of the law when it comes to employing musicians. Unless you are using experienced wedding musicians it is important for you to be aware of the legislation to ensure it is being followed. Most venues will check the paperwork is in place just before the wedding, and if they uncover an issue at that point it may be too late to arrange an alternative plan.

Copyright for hymns You cannot reproduce any music without the correct permission until 70 years after the death of the writer, however most hymns fall outside this time frame. No permission is needed if you are singing hymns from a hymn book - only if you are printing the words on an order of service. PAT Testing (Portable appliance test) Not a legal requirement, but most venues insist that all electrical music equipment being used by musicians has a current certificate. Professional musicians will know this, but you will need to resolve this issue early on if you are using students or amateurs. Public Liability Insurance This is a must for musicians to cover them in the event of anyone being injured by their equipment or as a result of their performance. Again, professional musicians should have this insurance in place, but do check if you're booking inexperienced performers. Performance Licenses You will need to check with your venue that the appropriate licenses are in place before booking your band. Even if you're only booking two musicians, the venue will still need a licence. This may change in the future to remove the need for a licence for audience of less than 200.

Kasia laughs when she remembers how she and Frank first got together; “Frank’s Dad MADE us go out - and even paid for our first date!” So it was fitting that when the couple decided to tie the knot, the families were very much involved! Kasia explains what they wanted from their big day: “We wanted a celebration that was infused with our spirit and those of everyone around us - relaxed, fun and loud!” They chose The Wick Bottom Barn in Rockley as their venue, as it provided the perfect blank canvas on which to stamp their very own personalities - with the help of family and friends. Kasia’s mum helped her track down the dress of her dreams, while Frank’s mum made the beautiful wedding cake, plus miniature cakes and favours for the guests. Meanwhile, Frank’s dad, who runs his own restaurants, ensured there was enough food for the whole of Wiltshire, including a seven course meal and a sweet buffet in the evening. Her top tip? “Hire the best photographer you can ours was probably the most talented person we’ve ever met!” SUPPLIERS: Venue Wick Bottom Barn Rockley Tel: 01672 514428 Florist Chrissie Wiltshire Flowers www.chrissiewiltshireflowers.com Marquee Covered Occasions www.coveredoccasions.co.uk Hog Roast Sumblers Tel: 01672 512185

Are you feeling the squeeze? If you've set your heart on a venue that is slightly out of your price bracket, do not despair! Consider a mid-week wedding - with enough notice, your guests will probably be able to take time off work. Don't dismiss all inclusive packages offered by venues; some can be very competitve if you source everything flowers, catering, entertainment - from them. Why not consider downsizing and opt for a more intimate affair at the same venue, and reduce overall costs.

If you have older friends and relatives coming to the wedding, think about where they will want to sit when there's loud music. Is there a nearby room where you could lay on tea and coffee? Do you need to order cabs for them a little earlier than for the younger guests? Are there any special dietary needs?

The Civil Offices, Euclid Street, Swindon, SN1 2JH

For children and younger guests, provide colouring books and quizzes to keep them happy during the meal, and perhaps a treasure hunt to occupy them during the photo sessions.

edding Fairs are the best way to meet local wedding businesses, see samples of their work and talk face to face.

They are free to attend and always have a warm, relaxed atmosphere and are a great day out, so much so that we have spoken to couples still visiting Wedding Fairs after their wedding day. Don’t miss out; find a Wedding Fair near you below.
