Your top wedding worries – and how to solve them

It's the day when you're expected to look your best, you want everyone to have fun and you want to screen the best man's speech before he delivers. Not to mention make sure the wedding photographer captures every single detail of your once-in-a-lifetime day.

It's no wonder that planning a wedding can be dampened by the little stresses. But fear not, help is at hand.
