Personal homemade touches can make the wedding day unique. The couple should carefully consider the style of the wedding before getting carried away and asking for lots of favours from lots of people.
- If a family member or close friend is an excellent cake maker, musician or florist, use their skills, so long as they are willing.
- Friends love to be involved, but the bride and groom should ensure that they don't put anyone in an awkward position, or that anyone is out of pocket.
- Reassure friends that their help is being sought with the aim of making the day personal, rather than as a way of saving money.
