Q: What advice or tips can you give couples wanting to get married?

A: 1) Do not stress- enjoy the whole planning process, on your wedding day things will happen that were not planned, it is inevitable.

2) Invite guests you have been in contact with at least the last month or so, not people you have not seen in years except if they’re family or close friends who live abroad.

3) A good DJ and musicians are important – they set the tone for your reception.
