12 Ways To Play with Fire On Your Wedding Day

play-with-fire

It’s just a few days until Bonfire night in Britain. On 5th November we ‘celebrate’ Guy Fawkes almost blowing up the Houses of Parliament with fireworks, bonfires and, unusually, by eating piping hot jacket potatoes. I know, it’s weird, but it also pretty fun! It’s perfect time to bundle up warm and go “oooh!” and “aaah!” at pretty lights in the sky.

No doubt about it, companies that organise Fireworks for weddings charge a LOT, but there are plenty of other ways to start your marriage with a whoosh and a bang!

1. Carry a smoking-hot bouquet (don’t forget the fire extinguisher!)

15 Pieces of Wedding Planning Advice From Past Brides

15 pieces of advise from past brides

Wedding planning advice can be found everywhere, but the best source of advice surely has to come from past brides who have actually had weddings similar to the one you’re hoping to have too.

We got a ticket the moment we pulled out of the courthouse when we got our marriage license. We were so pumped and then immediately so bummed. Just shake it off and eat some flapjacks. It all becomes a part of the story, and you’ll love those parts in the end.” – Elia

Ask around for great deals

“We got so many great deals by just asking around so if you’re stuck for an affordable venue check local farms and country b&b’s with land or camp sites. And don’t underestimate how much work it is putting it all together. I’m not sure the wedding would’ve happened without our AMAZING groomsmen and bridesmaids. We love them. SO MUCH. Keep your goals in perspective too. Some homemade things ended up just as expensive as if we’d bought them and can take a whole lot of time and work, but there are lots of things that can be made thriftily” – Naomi
