Planning a wedding is as stressful as it is exciting. While the prospect of The Big Day is, of course, one of the most fun of all, there's also a lot to think about before you get to that stage. From the venue to the dress to the food. Then there's the invitations, the guest list and the seating plans. Oh, and did we mention the ceremony plans, rings and vows?

And that's before you even get to the music. The options are endless - do you want a DJ or a live band? Do you want an organist? A singer? TOO MANY CHOICES.
