Congratulations, you’re engaged!
News feeds on social media are often full of proposals over the Christmas period, it’s such a romantic time of year to get engaged. Whether you said “Yes!” on a rooftop overlooking Manhattan on your winter city break, on an Icelandic fjord under the northern lights, or just at home in front of the tree then this blog is for you. It’s all Champagne and excitement to begin with until it dawns on you, ‘What next!!?’ .
Rather than dive head first into Pinterest boards and google searches (and sitting around listening to every married person you know tell you how to do it) just sit back and read this blog.
Love is real, real is love.

The first thing to remember is that it’s your day and your wedding should reflect you and your tastes. Everyone one will have their opinion to add, so take it on board and if it doesn’t stay true to you then feel free to ignore it. Be confident to say no and don’t let people talk you in or out of things.
“When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance”
Next you’ll need to get organised and set a date, venue, and most importantly a budget. The average cost of a UK wedding in 2017 was £27,000. While that amount might be accessible to some, for many that’s an eye-watering aount and you may be looking to save where you can. Thankfully there’s a lot you can do to keep costs down. Here at Copplestones we’ve got your dress covered: designer Alesandro Rossi, Amanda Wyatt, Charlotte Balbier, and Bianco Evento gowns at fabulous prices.
What ever proportion of your budget you set aside for your dress, you’ll be able to rest assured with our average price for a wedding dress at £700. With dresses ranging from £199 to £1549, you’ll be able to get that fairy-tale look and have some cash left to go towards the honeymoon and venue. With several ways to split the cost including interest free credit over 2 years, that dream look will become a dream reality.
