After the months spent planning our wedding, I wasn’t prepared to just switch off that part of my brain when the big day came and went. It didn’t seem right to just forget the day until our first anniversary came around.

They have produced The Ultimate Wedding Music Guide infographic, detailing the most overplayed wedding songs and hottest wedding reception tunes. » Read more
