7 steps to planning your dream wedding

To celebrate the coming together of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we bring you 7 businesses to plan the wedding of your dreams. From finding the perfect dress to booking the ideal honeymoon, these businesses have all been able to flourish thanks to your lending.

With the wedding only a day away, we also spoke to bridal boutique and Funding Circle borrower Froufrou for their thoughts on Meghan’s dress:

“We’re hoping she goes more demure and stylish compared to the more traditional gown of Kate Middleton. We love the embellished gowns from potential designers Ralph & Russo, but whatever she chooses will be breathtakingly beautiful!”
