Sourcing many of these items will require some research and you may need some guidance to help you make your all important choices. All elements of a wedding are as significant as each other but when it comes to deciding which venue to book there are many things to consider.
If your wish is to have a big wedding full of family and friends, it is a good idea to choose a wedding venue that is close to home, or within a reasonable travelling distance with suitable overnight accommodation. This will provide your guests with ease of travel and means more of your nearest and dearest can share your special day with you.
You may decide however, that a smaller more intimate affair with only a few guests is more desirable. You will need to consider room sizes at venues so your precious guests do not feel swamped by a room that is too big – you want them all to get up and have a boogie on the dance floor after all! It is amazing how the most confident of people become shyer in an empty room. The smaller the wedding party, the more options you have available to you, as a general rule of thumb. Some venues have larger rooms which can be split into two for smaller weddings, but consider other places such as restaurants which may be able to do an exclusive hire. Worth considering if you and your intended have a favourite restaurant, or one where you got engaged.
Getting married abroad is another option, with the beautiful scenery, beach sunsets and relaxed atmosphere. This is a great idea if you want to combine the big event with a family holiday or intimate honeymoon. Obviously you will probably need to scale down the numbers to just a few family and friends – but this can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. No more including long lost cousins or the lady your mum used to work with in the bank all those years ago!
Just remember the location or venue you choose is the backdrop for your wedding pictures. If you are aiming for a grand affair with all of the trimmings you may want to tie in your theme with an architecturally beautiful venue such as Down Hall in Hertfordshire, Essex. Or if you are from a Scottish heritage then you may opt for kilts and an historic castle. And remember that the weather can play a huge role in your perfect day as well, so ensure that your venue has plenty of indoor space to do the photographs should the need arise.
The choice is yours! Enjoy concocting your perfect wedding recipe; be sure to research your ingredients and ‘taste’ test as you go along to ensure your finished product is a day you cherish for a long time.
