There is nothing more exciting than planning a wedding. Whether you are living in the past faced, pressurised working environment where you’d rather carve your feet off after a day wearing killer heels that you justify completely as the best way to tone up those calves before the Big Day, which means a wedding planner is your best option, or you’ve got the time and energy to plan your own, “Venue” is often the first thing you carefully note down in your planner.
Ultimately, figuring out where you are going to get married and most importantly how much of a chunk that takes out of your budget is something every bride, groom and wedding planner has to face, but it often surprises people just how much thought needs to go into picking a venue.
Your theme often dictates the types of venues that match and compliment that theme, which then (if you’re anything like me), ends up spiralling into a confusing conundrum of “ooo I want a castle” to “I cant really afford a castle” and finally to “Does my handsome husband-to-be love me enough to build me a castle?” All joking aside, the venue, along with every other minute detail either makes your wedding one to remember – for the right reasons.
Our post this week is focusing on venues because after a viewing marathon of Don’t Tell The Bride and hurling abuse at the 2D men on my TV planning absurd weddings in the most awful places, I realised that this problem doesn’t only apply to the poor men being given the weighty task of planning a wedding.
Many brides have had their heart set on where they want to be married but also have a clear idea of their theme and style of wedding but sometimes the two just don’t marry (pun intended). Essentially, your venue eats up a huge amount of your budget and isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, so think and make the right decision for the style you’ve chosen for your wedding and always look at the bigger picture.
Working for West Yorkshire Chair Covers puts me in the advantageous position of being able to visit the most wonderful venues around Yorkshire, so much so I’m struggling to decide which is my favourite as I type this. The charming yet simple setting at Waterton Park Hotel, the gothic/romantic feel of the Monk Fryston Hall Hotel and the acres of sweeping green fields at Bagden Hall are all examples of beautiful wedding venues.
Whatever the venue though, whether it be a grand stately home or a local community hall, your wedding day is special because of what it means to you and your significant other, so make it your own and enjoy your special day!
