The bride: A late starter in life, Lucy always swore she d never get married. But now she has to find a caterer who doesn t charge a fortune for a cupcake, a dressmaker who doesn t make her cry and a way to bring Great-Auntie Betty down from Dundee for the sixpence she is willing to spend isn t it meant to be HER special day?

The groom: Christopher has spent twenty minutes compiling his guest list and checking his suit fits before returning to his newspaper this wedding business isn t so hard after all.

The mother of the bride: Armed with colour-coded wedding planning folders she is all set. However, twice-daily conversations with her daughter don t seem to be shortening the to-do list she s drawn up.
