Mostly As — you have had the perfect white wedding planned in your head since you were a child and can’t wait for it to become a reality now that you’ve met your Prince Charming. You happily spend your weekends touring the home counties to find the perfect manor house where you will be treated as lord and lady of the manor for the day. Ideally, you’d love to get married at Blenheim Palace, but you’d happily settle for Morden Hall.
Mostly Bs — you are a modern bride who wants to incorporate the important aspects of a wedding into your day without being a slave to tradition. You carefully consider every choice, from your music to your menu, to see how you can put your stamp on it without scaring your less adventurous guests. You spend ages poring over celebrity wedding photos, and you’d give almost anything to get married wearing a Monique Lhuillier designer wedding dress.
Mostly Cs — you envisage a weekend wedding to rival George and Amal Clooney’s, and there is no length you won’t go to achieve it. Your budget is as large as it needs to be to create an unforgettable event that befits this momentous occasion. You never plan on getting married again, so why shouldn’t you have what you want? Your honeymoon is going to be as spectacular as your wedding, and you’ve already booked the North Island Lodge in the Seychelles to make sure of it.
Mostly Ds — you are not the sort of bride to be led by trends. Your wedding day will be as unique as your love story. You are eschewing traditional wedding gifts for your family and friends making a contribution to your day, with your bestie making your cake, your mum altering your wedding dress, and your brother-in-law lending you his classic car. If your local pub is too small to accommodate your many friends and family, your perfect alternative London wedding venue is somewhere like MC Motors.
