You have said “Yes!”
You have a ring, you have excitedly announced your engagement to friends and family, you have updated your Facebook status... You are officially engaged!
Now begins the planning of your perfect day!
Get a notebook, put the kettle on and sit down with your partner!
Before you and your partner begin to look at venues, you need to decide what you both want for your day – do you want a church or civil ceremony? Do you want a traditional ceremony followed by photos, a sit down meal and an evening reception? Would you prefer an intimate affair? Or would you rather have a late ceremony leading into an canapes and an evening reception?
Decide what is important to you and your partner and what you are both prepared to compromise on – you are a team and will have to work together!
Next do your research – see what it out there – a quick view of an online wedding brochure will tell you if the venue matches what you want for your day and if it will fall within your budget.
A quick note on budget – a venue price can look ideal in a brochure but watch out of menu sur charges or extras you will have to fork out for later.
Once you have narrowed down the list a little – pick up the phone and arrange a viewing!
Viewing wedding venues is a bit like house hunting – you will know the right one when you visit! It will just feel right!
When you do go to view - ask questions! No question is too small or silly! Knowledge is power and communication is key!
If you have all the answers, love the vibe of a place and think it is your venue ... it is time to talk dates! You may have your heart set on a summer wedding but the venue is booked on your ideal date, so be prepared to be open to advice from the wedding coordinators.
Once the venue and date are set, the real fun can begin! Pinterest look out!
