>The best way to start planning a wedding is to just take a trip to visit some potential venues. It is all the better when said venues decide to be completely decked out and supply you with tastings of their canapés and wine on offer.
If you have been engaged for more than two days you will probably have heard of Dockside, L'Aqua and the Star Room, three contemporary reception venues with harbour views. On Sunday 17th October they are opening their doors, so if you are interested at all, THAT is the day you want to check it out. All their preferred suppliers will be on hand too, so you can get a sneaky peek at what's hot with creative ideas in weddings.
