    There'll be 101 wives who do professional cake decorating within the Garrison. In my experience you can't shift on camp for people hawking their bespoke birthday/wedding cakes.

    Get yourself to a local bridal shop, they've generally got details of people they recommend. Failing that, grab the Yellow Pages and have a flick through there for photographers and cars.

    Im getting married in 7 weeks and have sourced the majority of my things off the internet, and have saved quite alot of money to boot, join Confetti the girls in the forums can normally help with any qedding related item or query you may have.

    Do you know the kings headhotel in Richmond, it is lovely - 4 str i think. I can deffo reccomend the food there. Well they do a 'grand wedding for a grand; It looks amazing value for what you get - look on thier web site. Kings head hotel. Also I bought two wedding dresses ( dont ask) but obviously only wore one, i have the other one brand new in my wardrobe if you were interested I am looking to sell. It is ivory, Jaspar Conran - gorgeous. x

    Re: Wedding Stuff

    Funny that Sarah-thats where we've booked! We had our free sunday lunch there today and it was lovely so no regrets there!

    Was looking at the Jasper conran site on debenhams and tbh the kinda dress I would like is about 500plus on there (whereas where I am looking they are about 150) and don't think you'd want to let a brand new dress go for that! Thanks anyway though I think I know what you mean about having two though, I bought two prom dresses as I wasn't sure about the original one I had!

    Hey babes
    Iíve had some great wedding advice on here (Iím getting married at the end of the year)!
    Also check out ebay Ė Iíve got some bargins on the site Ė also check prices of EVERYTHING that you are looking to buy, Youíll find some cheaper than other and save yourself quite a bit.

    And best thing? Don't mention to ANY suppliers that it's a wedding. If anything, you're organising an "event" or "party". Prices tend to be less if you don't mention the W word
