Couples preparing to tie the knot this year want to organise the details themselves so as to have the individual touch.
That is according to Helen Webster, editor of Perfect Wedding magazine, who said that people are now looking into various different ways of coordinating their big day.
She added that Britons are organising varied activities such as renting out barns in the countryside to ensure that their weddings are unique.
"Recession aside, people are looking at putting their own individual stamp on their wedding day and they want to make it their own and put in those details that people will remember for months and years to come," Ms Webster concluded.
Earlier this month, Katie Price told the Press Association that she and new hubby Alex Reid are planning a second wedding.
Following on from her impromptu Las Vegas nuptials, the former glamour model intends to put together a ‘DIY’ ceremony this summer.
