A new study, conducted by the wedding financial experts at money.co.uk, involved surveying 1,000 future newlyweds and asking them to estimate how much they will spend on 70 wedding items. Images of these 70 items were then used in an eye-tracking study to reveal the specific elements that people spend the most time gazing at. Fairylights came out on top, with guests staring at them for 5.53 seconds which is impressive considering they are the decorations that those planning a wedding expect to pay the least for (£106.25). So, if you're looking to impress your guests without splurging then try draping your venue in tiny, twinkling fairylights.

All your style elements must work together when considering the theme for your wedding. To create a Bridgerton-style wedding, you need to ensure that you use only pastel colours such as regency blue, pale pink, gold and jewel.
For the entrance to the venue, I would use a metal frame as an archway intertwined with foliage, roses, spray roses, larkspur, hydrangeas and trailing jasmine to create a stunning and sophisticated look.
The wedding breakfast would benefit from large floral arrangements. Incorporate long tables with chiffon and silk table runners cascading onto the floor. Chiavari chairs with chiffon drapes would be an ideal choice that would create a graceful movement that would contrast well with silver candelabras with pastel colour floral arrangements. It's important that you use only one of the solid pastel colours mentioned above for your linens at the venue and that the crockery is of the regency period style and in a harmonious hue.

"Are you one of the lucky ones getting to celebrate your love at Christmas? Festive weddings are becoming more popular, and there are lots of ways you can make your day extra magical through your décor. Try using wreaths at the venue entrance to create a warm welcome! Incorporate the festive season by decorating your venue with holly, pinecones and Christmas-inspired greenery. Don't forget about the food and drink. Eggnog, peppermint and cranberry are perfect for festive weddings, and you could even have your canapés shaped like bows and trees."

Your day will always be special and unique to you, but here are some tips to make your wedding stand out: Personalise your day with gentle touches that represent you as a couple such as a personalised guest book and card box. Keen travellers? Include some special memories recreated in the form of centrepieces. You could also have the background photos in the photo booth as places you have visited together. Does your other half have a preferred flower they buy you for birthdays, Valentine's Day or anniversaries? If so, use this as the main bloom in your arrangements. A good band always makes a wedding stand out, but it isn't always a cost-effective option. A great alternative is to ask all guests to request a specific song for the evening reception.

Ginger Ray, based in Weybridge, has teamed up with astrologer Lisa Stardust to reveal how you can decorate your wedding based on your star sign. "Aries are known for their passionate nature, which is why they'll go for a white wedding dress with red flowers and décor to showcase their desirable nature," says Lisa. "Being that Tauruses are so connected with the earth, they will prefer a botanical wedding that surrounds them with nature, flowers and open skies. Geminis like to set a light and airy vibe with an all-white colour scheme. The Cancer sign is all about inner glam vibes and has an old fashioned, vintage look with champagne flutes, ice sculptures and top hats. Leos love to make an entrance with big flowing dresses with metallic sequins sporadically spread all over for effect with a plunging back or neckline. Virgos are effortlessly cool, and a rustic vineyard that seats everyone outdoors on a communal table with free-flowing wine, great conversation, amazing food and classic music is the perfect wedding for a Libra."
