Here’s exactly what to spend your extra wedding budget on

So, you’ve got everything you need for your wedding, all the basics are sorted and you’ve got a little left over to spend… so what should you spend your extra wedding budget on?

The Love Actually Experience

Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like! Just after you are announced married by your celebrant, a bunch of singers (who appear to be guests) belt out “all you need is love”, and your guests will go wild. If you’ve never seen the film Love Actually, do yourself a favour and make that a priority this Christmas.

Wedding insurance

If you’ve spent a whooooole lot of money on your wedding, then you may want to consider purchasing some wedding insurance to cover all of your bases. This insurance covers a multitude of potential issues that could go wrong, including postponement, your rings, your gifts and much much more.
