Our wedding team here at Broadoaks really appreciate that it’s the tiny details that can make the biggest impact. We love to help our couples create a wedding experience that’s as individual as they are. That’s why we’ve been busy crafting some new personalised wedding options to help you colour coordinate your big day in a way that will make your guests say WOW!
If somebody close to you has recently gotten engaged and you have been asked to be their best man, you may be wondering exactly what your role will entail and what responsibilities you need to be aware of to help your friend’s big day run as smoothly as possible.
You probably know that the best man is the one to organise the stag do, but what else does the role really involve? It’s actually a role with far more responsibility than you may realise! We’ve pulled together this guide to help you prepare for the big day.
Here at Broadoaks, we’re proud to be a same-sex friendly venue and we’ve been lucky enough to have hosted many same-sex marriages and civil partnerships here in the beautiful Lake District.
One of many questions we get from our couples and their families is regarding the etiquette for various elements of a same-sex wedding, as a lot of the traditional etiquette is very much gender specific.
So, with that in mind, we thought we’d put together this post to clear up a few things and answer a few questions you may have!
If you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid or the maid of honour at a wedding, first things first: congratulations!
Being asked to be part of the bridal party is a huge honour and something that you should really be proud of. However, it can also be a big responsibility and slightly overwhelming if you’ve never done it before, especially if you don’t quite understand just how important it is.
With that in mind, we’ve put together this guide to make sure you can support your friend as much as possible on their big day and make sure it’s an occasion to be remembered, all for the right reasons!
If you’ve just got engaged, you’re probably really excited to get stuck into planning your big day! Chances are you’ll have given your ideal wedding plenty of thought before you even got engaged, and will be dying to set the wheels in motion to make it a reality.
If you are excitedly planning your wedding day, and are either not wanting to have a religious ceremony, or are looking for a perfect second reading to complement a Bible reading, you may be looking for something a little bit different.
There are lots of important decisions to be made when planning your wedding and one of the most important ones is also one of the most delicate: gifts.
Whilst it’s traditional to have a gift list, many couples feel awkward about writing one and are unsure where to start. In fact, some newlyweds avoid it altogether by choosing to ask for money or charitable donations instead.
But, if you’ve decided to opt for a wedding gift list, here are some pointers to help you on your way.
