Once upon a time

Q. My hubby-to-be and I are having a themed wedding and would love to incorporate it into our décor. Do you have any ideas?

A. Ann Brown says: Meet your chosen supplier for an informal chat to discuss your requirements and ensure you feel at ease around them.

- Is your budget fixed, or can it be altered? Check that the company carries full insurance to give you peace of mind.

- Discuss how many tables you're going to have and would like you like to have favour boxes, table numbers, name cards or a table plan?

- Have you got a particular colour scheme in mind? If not, choosing hues that relate to your theme.

- Do you want your centrepieces to match or have different displays?

- Your décor should reflect the table settings depending on your theme.
