'Tis (almost) the season to be giving, and we've got some great news for brides watching their figures: Helen Carter Weddings (helencarterweddings.co.uk) is offering 20 per cent off all wedding planning services, booked before 31 January 2010. Services range from full and partial planning to venue and supplier sourcing and invitation/RSVP management - but they can tailor a package to match your needs. The vital statistics? You can save anything between £35 and £500. For example, if you want Helen to handle the arrangements in the six to eight week run-up to your big day, you'll pay £680 instead of the usual £850, while if you'd like a planner there on the day itself, you'll get £80 off the usual £400 fee. Which means less money and less stress. Nice.
