Wedding Planning Advice
from venue owners, Ian and Sandy
What advice can you give couples when it comes to researching and choosing a wedding venue?
- Ask the venue owner/ manager a range of questions such as what time the venue closes, if guests can leave their cars overnight and whether the venue has highchairs for children
- Ask yourself three questions: 1) Is the venue of a standard where we would like to have our wedding? 2) Does the price meet our budget, and 3) Can we work with the event co-ordinator to bring our vision to life? If you can give three ticks, then you are well on your way to finding your perfect venue.
What can the couple do to help you make their wedding day run as smoothly as possible?
Communicate with your venue to ensure that everything you want is planned and organised. That way, there are no hidden surprises on the day.
Ian and Sandy’s lush tropical wedding venue, set amongst private gardens, is sure to make your special day even more amazing! Thank you for joining The Busy Bride, In The Grove. Check them out at Pinterest here.
