Embrace the beautiful game into your big day this weekend!

If you’re getting married this Saturday and you know at least half of your wedding party will be edging away from the dance floor and into a corner to watch the England game, don’t despair – embrace it!

That’s the advice from Michelle Jacobs, wedding planner from https://www.ritzy-events.co.uk

“Having been planning weddings for more than five years I’ve come across sporting events like this on more than one occasion, and whilst at the time it seems like a bride’s worst nightmare, you can actually turn it to your advantage and have fun with it,” comments Michelle.

Michelle’s top tips:

  • Don’t shy away from it, make it a part of the day and ensure there is a big screen available for guests to mingle whilst watching
  • If you happen to be getting married at 2pm or 3pm – ask the venue to record it and show the match later – knowing that you are all away from the ‘real-time’ match and watching it together as a group later on will bring everyone closer together and will in fact be a great bonding opportunity for those who don’t know each other terribly well
  • If you’re having a civil ceremony, incorporate ‘Football’s coming home’ into your procssion music, it’s sure to raise a few smiles on the big dayEmbrace the beautiful game into your big day this weekend!
  • If there are a lot of football fans in attendance, send out a last-minute invite for everyone who wants to change into their football attire to do so whilst the game is on
  • Incorporate England flags into the area where the match is going to be viewed, with bunting, flags and other regalia
  • A light-hearted bet on the day, with funds going to a charity that’s close to your heart, is a lovely way of incorporating the big event into your big day.

Michelle adds: “The World Cup is such a huge sporting occasion that it shouldn’t go unnoticed. Often, I’ve found that it brings guests together, whatever the final result. It makes for a lasting memory so embrace it as much as you can and spare some time to make any last minute adjustments - your venue will be only too delighted to help out, I’m sure."
