The free honeymoon upgrade is such a desired item that many people go to great lengths to get one and in a lot of cases they achieve it. It’s competitive though, with just about every couple trying their luck (even couples who aren’t actually on honeymoon!) and only so many upgrades available. Using this fab honeymoon resource, I’ve come with a definitive guide to upping your game…
The Art of Achieving the Free Honeymoon Upgrade
1) Make sure you’re dressed to impress. There’s no way you’ll get an upgrade if you’re looking a bit scruffy.
2) Think about the timing of your honeymoon. If you can travel outside of peak season and preferably on a Saturday, you stand a much better chance of sucess
3) Holiday accommodation that is newly opened will be looking to get good reviews from their customers. They need to establish their reputation. For that reason, they’re a good bet for a honeymoon upgrade.
4) The is most important thing to remember: Ask! Ask for your upgrade. Most upgrades are awarded because the customer asked for them.
5) Throughout the whole booking process, from your travel agent, to your flight provider, and your accomodation – make sure everyone is aware of the fact that you’re on honeymoon. Upgrades are given to honeymooning couples, because they’ll be asked about their trip more often than other holidaying couples and they want them to say nice things!
6) When you’re talking to the right people - the airline check-in attendant and the hotel staff, name drop if you know the right people and don’t be afraid to talk up other hotels you’ve staying. You want these people to know that you spread the word about those who provided a good service
I hope this has been helpful. If you secure a free honeymoon upgrade we’d love to hear from you. You can find lots more wedding planning advice here and if you’d like to get on our mailing list and grab some wedding freebies, here’s how to do it x

A pagan wedding ceremony is also called a handfasting ceremony and it represents two people coming together in love, as equals. The oaths that are sworn are more important to the couple than the traditional vows and involve what each person intends towards the other. A priest or a priestess will officiate the ceremony and there will be much discussion beforehand to ensure that the oaths are exactly right. The oaths need to reflect the couple’s responsibilities towards each other

Hi there, I’ve had a few days off blogging. You might have noticed, or you might not have. I’d like to think you’ve missed my daily wedding inspiration natch!! But if you haven’t you may be unconcerned to learn that normal service resumes next week. (and I’ve got some corkers lined up!! Definitely worth checking out!)
This just a quick message anyway, to let all my lovely hundreds of subscribers know that I sent out the November Newsletter today. It should be waiting for you in your email inbox, but if it’s not, please check your junk folder and add me to your safe list. As with sending out any bulk email, the servers can’t cope sometimes and send it to the wrong place. There’s loads of offers, recommended suppliers and freebies.
Have a fab weekend and when we meet again, it will be the Christmas month!! Argghhh! Mega exciting! xxx

A cheesecake wedding cake, or cheese wheel cake consists of lots of cheeses stacked in tiers, one on top of the other and decorated with fruit or flowers. It can be presented to the guests in place of a traditional sweet wedding cake, or in addition. Couples who prefer savoury to sweet often choose a cheesecake wedding cake, but how is it done? Is it really as simple as plonking a load of cheese on top of each other? Not quite. You need to think about quantity, which cheeses it’s ok to use (given that wrong sort of cheese might splat or go whiffy) and also, how to serve it!!
I get all my info from this cheesey source!

Bridesmaid dresses are often bought without the bridesmaid being there to try it on. There may be a huge distance between where the two of you live, or your bridesmaid might be a young child, who is not going to be thrilled with trying dresses on. Whatever the reason, one of the most useful things you can learn how to do, is hem a bridesmaid’s dress. This will enable you alter the length of the dress and it’ll save you a fortune. Best of all the same technique can be applied to any dress. You’ll be set up for life! Start your own business even! (Steady on…)
Before you go pondering how marvellous I am to know how to hem bridesmaid dresses, it’s worth mentioning that my information source is a respected DIY site, therefore this tutorial is much more likely to work than, if I’d just had a guess at how it’s done!! Happy sewing!
