Summer 2017 Issue 28

A warm welcome to our Summer issue! Packed with our usual wonderful features and inspiration, what better time to sit in the garden with a G&T and enjoy some wedding planning. We have had a busy few weeks with designer launches and interviews (check out our exclusive with David Emanuel from the UK’s SYTTD).

We have been looking at the most popular days for weddings and it will come as no surprise that Saturday and Friday top the most chosen days for a summer wedding with over 70% on these days. August is the most popular month, followed by July with June in 4th place here in the UK. The most unpopular day is a Tuesday so if you have your heart set on a summer wedding but finding that this is out of your budget, take a look at venues that would welcome a mid-week wedding.

Keeping with summer we have the most fabulous floral gown feature for you, plus lots of honeymoon ideas. If you fancy winning with UWD then tap here to view our website where we have amazing competitions with Primark and Boux Avenue. Keep your eyes on that page as we have the most meteoric competition starting in July!

We have seen some horrendous press recently regarding wedding suppliers. I would like to remind you that this is your hard earned cash being spent so when you are looking for suppliers ensure they are accredited, qualified, insured and always, always look at their customer testimonials. Make sure you do due diligence before you sign any contracts and look at the wide variety of wedding insurance around and invest, this is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

We hope you all have a fabulous Summer and make sure you give us a cheeky social media follow to keep up-to-date with all our latest news, trends and competitions.
