Where on earth should a wedding business spend their advertising pennies in such a busy market? Good old magazines, whose printed pages stick around for a while (but cost a fortune)? Or Facebook ads, Instagram promotions… Perhaps wedding fairs are more your thing – but if you’re shy when it comes to meeting people and ‘selling’ your brand face to face, I totally get that because I’m like that too. For me, wedding blog advertising is the answer. It’s worked for me for the last eight years – and I’m very happy to say the English Wedding Blog now has two options for advertisers to join our little team.
Boho wedding styling is massively popular for 2018 and I’m a huge fan of the peacock chair / palm fronds / forehead jewellery look. Throw in an eastern rug and bare toes and you’ve stolen my heart completely. But for those of you who don’t want to go full boho – especially if you have your heart set on a traditional bridal gown – I have something very special to share with you today.
Chair covers can hide a multitude of stains, scrapes and unsightly patterns… but let’s be honest, those white polyester covers are pretty hideous! I’ve never been a fan – I cannot understand why some venues still provide grotty chairs which need to be hidden, while others simply buy beautiful Chiavari or elegant wooden chairs for their weddings! Luckily lovely Hollie from Daisy Says I Do has shared her simple solutions with us today.

Picture the scene: A close friend calls you up. ‘Hi, how you doing? Look, I know it’s not really your thing, but would you mind doing ten minutes of stand-up comedy in front of a room half full of friends and half full of total strangers? It’d mean a lot to me.’ You want to put the phone down but you can’t. They’ve just asked you to be their best man and give a brilliantly funny speech at their wedding.
