One last tip for planning your wedding

Not all wedding planners will decorate your hall for you, so make sure that you’re on the same page as your planner. You don’t want to be setting tables and arranging bunting with curlers in your hair. 

However you choose to spend your wedding day, remember the unsung guest of honour: attention to detail. Getting the little details right is what we’re all about at Light a Lantern. If there is something you have your heart set on for your wedding day, we have it here!
Happy shopping, bride-to-be!
