In the course of organising your wedding you’ll have been daydreaming about the dress and the theme or colour but also, the where. Where you want to say the vows and where you want to have your reception are two of the most important places, especially if you are having them in separate destinations. Planning a wedding is exciting as it is but planning a city wedding with a rustic, historical feel is even more exciting than usual. Castles and beautiful palace grounds, royal parks and even boat weddings on the Thames, there’s something for every bride looking at hiring a Wedding Planner London to organise. Deciding whether you should get married in a stately home or country manor can be one of the more exciting decisions you’ll make as a bride.
When you go ahead and choose a venue for your wedding, you need to consider whether there are rooms attached for guests and even a bridal suite for you. You may be the sort of bride who has a large budget so something as lavish as a stately home or a manor house and even a castle could be in your price range. If so, make sure you shop around for a good deal. Most stately homes have the licence to hold weddings so you could easily get a great package deal with the ceremony and the reception all at the same place. If you have hired in a Professional wedding planner Surrey then you should be able to have them arrange a great deal for you. Make sure that you have picked a venue that is easy enough to get to for guests who don’t drive. Think about laying on a minibus to nearby stations or hotels if the venue you choose is rural.
If you choose to get married a little further afield than your home town, or you want a city wedding in somewhere like London, be aware of the trains! If you’re unlucky enough to not have a car, train travel is usually the method of transport to get into London from further away and the earlier you book the cheaper it is. Make sure that you have a railcard if you travel as a family or a Two Together railcard works for couples. Make lists! List churches, list hotel venues, list halls and palaces and make plans with your planner to put down deposits and broker deals with some of the swankiest of places. Make a timetable of meetings you have to attend and ensure you’re sorted for travel costs and lunch before you start.
Choosing your wedding destination doesn’t have to be a difficult decision as long as you’re choosing somewhere you are happy with. The only input and opinion that you should care about when choosing your venue is yours and your grooms. Yes, be considerate of the guests you’ve invited but giving enough notice of your wedding is the best thing you can do to ensure that people can book travel and hotels.
