Today's guest blogger is Sue Page from Ice the Cake. Ice the Cake is an invaluable resource for anybody out there who is planning a wedding. They source great wedding suppliers who are as passionate as they are about creating the perfect recipe for your special day. Working with an extensive list of 'Credible and Incredible' suppliers, they offer ideas and inspiration for every layer of your wedding. I can totally recommend and you'll also find me on there!
Here's what Sue had to say;
"When Maxine from Life’s A Celebration asked me to write a blog for her site I was absolutely delighted. In my job I am constantly looking for new and unique ideas for Weddings and Celebrations and I absolutely adore Life’s A Celebration’s ‘party boxes’. Not only do they create imaginative boxes that are perfect for Hen Do’s and the night before the Wedding; more importantly (for me) they have some really helpful ideas when it comes to keeping the children entertained! We had a whole table of children at our wedding and I would’ve loved to have been able to give each of them a Life’s A Celebration’s Wedding Activity Bag to keep them occupied during the Wedding Breakfast.
Life’s A Celebration has recently joined the Ice the Cake Network and I am delighted with the involvement they have already had with my company. Ice the Cake source ‘credible and incredible’ Wedding Suppliers to provide every ingredient for your wedding. We cherry pick suppliers and venues from across the UK from bespoke stationery to classic cars, fantastic photographers to creative caterers, and I strive to provide advice and suppliers for everything that might be needed for that big day. We all know that planning a wedding can be really stressful and I want to try and take some of that emotion away and offer brides, grooms and everyone else involved a wide range of ideas in one place.

With Valentine’s Day last week another wave of delighted ‘Brides to Be’ have joined the Engaged status. However, if you are in a long term relationship and are desperately waiting for your other half to propose all is not lost! This year is a Leap Year which traditionally means that on the 29th February the lady can propose to the love of her life. According to tradition Queen Margaret of Scotland ordered that if a gentleman was proposed to and he declined he would be fined £100! Now this was back in the 13th Century so with inflation I am sure that would be enough for him to say yes! J
But whichever way you get engaged the most important thing is that you are proposing and accepting that the two of you will be together for the rest of your lives. Many people get swept up in planning the wedding but it’s the marriage that is going to need the most work if you are going to last the duration. We have a lovely story on our website about a couple who have now been married for 63 years and I love that the wife in the relationships 'secret to happiness' is tolerance!
Congratulations to all those who are planning their weddings or are recently married we hope to see you over on Ice the Cake soon."
