A super informative and helpful article by our friends at Entertainment Nation

The simple answer is: yes, you can! There is a little more to it than that though, so read on and we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about planning live music at your micro wedding.

We’ve all had enough of lockdowns and social distancing and want to get back to times that are precedented… but we’re not quite there yet. That’s fine though, because carefully planned micro weddings are the perfect, intimate way to bypass the delays and get married (at last!). And there’s nothing to stop you having a bigger celebration after all this is over!

Time to talk about your Big Wedding – the one that’s going to happen after all of this is over. Maybe you’re having a micro wedding first and a big party later. Maybe you’ve postponed getting married until 2022 or 2023. Perhaps you’re planning a big do in the summer and planning to party the night away, festival style, in a big open space! Either way, when those big wedding celebrations happen again, we’ll all need to let our hair down and have the party of a lifetime!

An expert advice article from English Wedding members Jam Hot Band

Your wedding will be one of the best days of your life. Marrying your perfect partner surrounded by everyone you hold dear makes for a truly wonderful experience – couple that with choosing to tie the knot in a jaw-dropping foreign destination, and the magic is increased ten fold! There are so many exciting aspects when it comes to planning a destination wedding – but also a few more elements to consider than if you get married at home in the UK.

When you start to plan your wedding, your first key points are likely to be Venue, Photographer, Florist, Dress, Cake.

Then you start to sort seating plans and timelines. The registrar has you booked for a 12pm wedding. The venue has you booked for a sit down dinner at 4pm… UH OH… that’s a big gap from 12.30pm til at least 3.30pm when the venue starts seating your guests.
