With the average wedding cost currently exceeding £22,700 for Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire brides*, the wedding industry continues to thrive as more and more couples set out to make their big day extra special. Brides today have a dazzling array of wedding dresses to choose from - from the traditional to the quirky, from dresses you can imagine yourself wearing to those you like the look of but would never be brave enough to put on.
Remember to book your wedding car as far ahead as you can. The more popular or rare vehicles are often booked up to a year in advance.
Look for entertainment with very strong vocals to wow the audience, grouped with solid musicians who have the experience to run things smoothly on the night**.
