So I am planning to marry DP in approx 18 months, and we have to start planning now because we are also moving and setting up a business in that time as well! I think I have everything decided, please may you 'interview me' so I can make sure that I have everything ready to organise. Thanks

Doves.

You need Doves.

Rainbow Connection is an inspired choice for a first dance- my dad's brass band were playing during our ceremony and as we walked back down the aisle they changed abruptly from Vivaldi to the theme from the Muppet Show. 'Twas awesome grin
