Wedding Planning Advice

from venue owner, Sonia

What advice can you give couples when it comes to researching and choosing a wedding venue?

  • It is good to have an idea of budget, approximate date or time of year you are wanting to get married, and an idea of numbers.
  • Do some internet research to look for a venue that appeals to both of you. You need to both have a good feel about the venue,
  • Once you start consulting friends and family about the venues you are looking at or possible dates, it can open a can of worms with everyone having their own opinion on what they think you should have. Whilst opinions from trustworthy people can help, remember this is you and your fiancé’s wedding, so have what you want.
  • If either of you start to get stressed about the process, stop wedding planning for a week and then get back into it. Planning your wedding should be an enjoyable time.
  • Get as much planned and booked-in as possible in the beginning so you can relax as the day approaches.

What can the couple do to help you make their wedding day run as smoothly as possible?

  • In the beginning, get reliable suppliers. If someone is slow at getting back to you or hard to contact, this might be a warning sign that they are under the pump and might not be able to give you the service you deserve.
  • Ensure you are happy with the timeline the venue has discussed with you.
  • Have a list of all your suppliers, give this to the venue and ensure the timeline is given to every supplier.
  • Confirm and communicate everything by email so you have a record of what has been arrange with the venue and supplier.
  • Have a checklist to confirm everything about two weeks prior.
  • On the day before and of your wedding don’t plan to do anything in regard to planning, decorating etc. You should relax, be pampered and get dressed ready to enjoy a stress-free, memorable day.
