The extra factor

The extra factor: Image 1 If you're looking to put that extra special touch to your big day, don't forget to included plenty of tempting treats throughout the day.

Think decorative food stands, vintage ice-cream trikes, outdoor drink stations serving killer cocktails or local beers and ales – perfect for a chilled summer festival-style wedding.

Ice cream always goes down a treat with guests of all ages; great for al fresco drinks receptions post vows. Served from a vintage push bike or a traditional-style van, it's sure to attract a queue. Or how about a popcorn stand? Great for the little ones and the not-so-little!

No longer an after thought, desserts are increasingly stealing the show. Couples are looking to up the wow-factor with whole tables beautifully styled and groaning with help-yourself goodies. Dramatic centrepieces such as macaron towers and croquembouche are proving popular too, either as an alternative or addition to the traditional wedding cake. Check out the hard-to-resist doughnut walls from Southampton-based Neon & Blush Weddings and Events for a finger-licking delight.

For those that don't have a sweet tooth, The Cheese Wedding Cake in Dorset offers fabulous cheese towers; not only a tasty alternative but a budget-friendly option for the evening buffet served with a variety of artisan bread, chutneys and pickles to snack on. We love their sensational multi-tiered Wiston special (pictured).
