How to make a small wedding feel special, even for virtual guests

You’ve been planning it for months, if not years, and now that your wedding day is in sight there’s another spanner in the works. Your parents insisted you invite all the aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbours and in-laws under the sun but now thanks to Covid-19 you have the fun job of restructuring your guest list and whittling it down without hurting anyone’s feelings and without losing the special feeling that’s essential for a wedding day. 

You’ll do something online, of course, but what? And how can you make those joining you over video feel like they’re right in the middle of the celebrations?

Wedding planner Kate O’Dowd of Love & Gatherings says couples impacted by restricted numbers should plan their day as if it was intended to be an intimate event with close family and friends. She thinks it is an opportunity to be even more creative on your big

In a perfect world, you’d never need to think twice about whether your wedding vendors mesh well—after all, they’re industry professionals focused on the same goal: your happiness. Well, most of the time. “Sometimes, people just don’t get along,” says planner Michelle Rago of Michelle Rago Destinations. “There is an advantage when a team is harmonious and they get along well and they are supporting each other in the outcome of your day.

A woman has called off her wedding to a ghost after he fell into a bad gang and started taking drink and drugs while they were holidaying together.

Amethyst Realm joined Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on today’s episode of This Morning where she lifted the lid on her heartbreak, explaining that she called things off with Ray and used sage to keep him at bay.

‘I think maybe he fell in with a bad crowd when we were on holiday. He just started becoming really inconsiderate, he’d disappear for long periods of time, when he did come back, he’d bring other spirits to

Woman turns mum’s wedding dress into sexy lingerie to wear on her big night

A bride has been brutally criticised after she revealed that she turned her mum’s wedding dress into a “sexy slip” for the special night.

Although it’s not uncommon for a bride to want to honour a parent or close relative on their big day, this woman’s token was a little out of the ordinary.

Instead of incorporating an accessory as a sweet memento, she decided to wear her mum’s wedding bridal gown as a raunchy robe instead, reports Daily Star.

Seemingly chuffed with the finished outcome, the woman took to Facebook to share her creation.

Her outfit designer wrote: “Another mum’s wedding dress design.

“A sexy slip to wear during the hair and makeup as well as the wedding night.”

She appeared to be chuffed with the final look

MADD on Prop. 22 + Wedding gowns at the Capitol + Parents for split roll, affirmative action

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

FIRST UP — Sen. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg, isn’t shy when it comes to touting the quality of one of his district’s most famous crops.

“World class cannabis comes from the Emerald Triangle (of Humboldt, Mendocino and Trinity counties),” he said.

Now that recognition is about to be official and enforce by law.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a law, authored by McGuire and inspired by the wine industry, that ties the coveted “appellation of origin” label to the sun and soil of a region.

If you’re a cannabis connoisseur, that’s a big deal. It means Emerald Triangle farmers can market their product to tout their North Coast roots, and potentially gain an advantage over competitors.
