Brides may want to wear a lace wedding dress for a Once Upon A Time look

 

Event: Once Upon A Time
Dates: Ongoing
Venue: The Langham, London

Wondering what to wear on your big day? Try a lace wedding dress to look like a princess when taking part in Once Upon A Time - a wedding package.

This wedding package takes place at the hotel wedding venue, The Langham, and can make a bride and her groom feel like they are in a fairytale.

It includes hire of the Grand Ballroom, where a luxury wedding reception can be held, a four-course meal for each guest as well as four glasses of wine each and a stay in the Grand Suite for the newlyweds.

Brides-to-be may be worrying about what to wear to help them match their luxury surroundings so Helen Webster, editor of Perfect Wedding magazine, has given some hints.

She said: "Coloured petticoats and coloured heels are very popular for brides as well who want to be a bit different, so we have seen quite a lot of those.

"Lace is huge at the moment and I think Catherine [the Duchess of Cambridge] has a lot to answer for with that trend."

After dancing the night away at your wedding reception, newlyweds and their guests can retire to their rooms at the five star hotel - The Langham.

Newlyweds can enjoy a 'mini-moon' in London

 

Event: Mini-moon
Date: Ongoing
Venue: London

More newlywed couples could follow the example of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine, by taking a mini-moon.

Newlyweds may choose to enjoy one of the wedding packages on offer in the capital and enjoy a short honeymoon in the city before enjoying a longer holiday later on.

According to Jane Anderson, editor of 101honeymoons.co.uk, which provides expert recommendations, more newlyweds are taking shorter honeymoons immediately after the big day due to the expense.

She said: "Many couples find themselves either cash-rich and time-poor after the big day or cash-poor after the expense of the wedding, making it much more sensible to take a short romantic break immediately after the big day and have a more traditional longer honeymoon at a later date."

Those who wish to do this could stay at a five star hotel, such as the Langham, after enjoying their wedding reception to enjoy a romantic break in the city.

Newlyweds could enjoy the spa facilities at the hotel, eat in a fine restaurant and catch a show on the London stage.

The Royal couple enjoyed a short weekend break in the UK just after the wedding on April 29th. They will be going abroad at a later date.

Enjoy contemporary art at Love is What You Want

 

Event: Love is What You Want
Dates: May 18th to August 29th
Venue: Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre.

Contemporary artist Tracey Emin has created some new works for the Love is What You Want exhibition, which showcases her work.

Art fans staying in a hotel near Oxford Street, such as the Langham, can travel to the Southbank Centre to catch the artist's latest exhibition this summer.

Visitors will be able to see paintings, sculptures, drawings, film and textiles by Emin, ranging across her career.

Seldom-seen early works can be seen alongside outdoor installations that have been created specially for the exhibition.

Emin told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "People who don't have any idea about what I do, if they go to the Hayward show, they will understand what I do."

This could be an ideal attraction for those staying in a 5 star hotel in London as part of a break in the city as they will be able to see works by a controversial British artist who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1999.

Tickets cost from £12.50 and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult due to the nature of some of the pieces.

After enjoying a day looking around Love is What You Want, visitors to the city can retire to a luxury London hotel, such as the five star Langham.
