The week leading up to St. Valentines Day, the most romantic day of the year, is honoured all over the world as Marriage Week and, in the UK, 2015 will be the celebration’s 19th birthday. Marriage Week is not just for brides- and grooms-to-be; married couples form a uniquely-special part of the celebration, respected and admired for their success.
Marriage Week was established in the UK in 1996 by couple Maria & Richard Kane. Richard was then the director of Marriage Resource, a charity that seeks to educate, inform and benefit couples married or intending to marry. The charity also mounts media campaigns that highlight the beautiful and beneficial effects of happy, healthy marriages to individuals and society as a whole.
Many official events take place to celebrate Marriage Week from mass weddings and reaffirmation of vows ceremonies to communication skills courses. Many married couples use the time for a second honeymoon while those planning a wedding during the week itself are given an extra level of excitement for their big day.
Our fantastic collection of bridal lace, wedding dress material and embellishments have been eagerly and extensively chosen from by thousands of designers, dressmakers and brides over the past few weeks as Marriage Week and Valentine’s Day, which in combination represent one of the annual spikes in wedding numbers, approach.
