Wedding industry statistics....

This chart completely fascinates me, it opens up so many topics of conversation on wedding budgets!!!

American weddings are beautiful, I mean really beautiful, the attention to detail is staggering, the size of the wedding parties, the clothes, the venues, the flowers, the photography.....

And then looking at diverse cultures, Canadian's so close to the US, yet so different, so low key in comparison, you can just feel the difference walking down the street.

And Europe, well, Europe consists of such a diverse group of countries, each with very different traditions and ideas about wedding that you can't really generalise, I am fascinated that Britain spends a third of the Spaniards on weddings, I would never have thought, although the Meditteranean countries do tend to host larger weddings and families are more involved with the traditions than in the UK.

China is just so vast and they definitely use the USA as their example, so I'm not surprised at all!

But really, what are your views on spending for your wedding? Is it a once in a lifetime event that will mark the beginning of a life together, create memories that you will share with friends and family for years to come? Does the budget really make a difference?

Featured on Wedding Obsession

Good afternoon to all readers,

I have a second feature to showcase with you, it is my own wedding that was featured a couple of months ago on the fabulous Canadian Blog, Wedding Obsession!


I love the way the wedding was portrayed and decided that I would like to share it with those interested in viewing it!

Feature on Martha Stewart!!!!!!!

Sometimes good days arrive out of the blue, really good days!!!

Those who have planned weddings before will know that there is no better reward than a thank you at the end of the day, it is literally priceless! However when a magazine features your work, you know that you've done well! Of course lots of elements go in to creating a wedding, you need a beautiful couple, venue and of course a fabulous photographer which I found in Chloe Brown of caught the light!

Anyway, the fantastic wedding in Chania is today featured on Martha Stewarts wedding blog (yay!!!!) and this is the link (I will be featuring more images of the wedding in the next few days).
