The question has been popped and the ring’s on the finger. You’ve celebrated with friends and family and now the exciting part starts – the planning! But where to begin? Our wedding planner can help you every step of the way. Below is our step-by-step guide to planning your wedding, but don’t worry: once you book with us, we make sure there is plenty of time for making arrangements.
Set your budget
Talk to each other and decide how much you can and want to spend. The earlier you do this the easier it will be to plan all the other details.
Pinterest, Instagram, good old fashioned bridal magazines, get a feel of how you want your wedding to look and the theme you might follow.
Start your guest list
We’re not looking at final numbers, but just a rough idea of how many people you would like to invite so that you know what size venue/wedding room you may need.
Think about dates
This isn’t set in stone but if you have an idea of the time of year you would like to get married it will help when looking at venues
Choose a venue
Book a showround with us and let us show you why we’re the perfect venue for your magical day.
Send save the dates
Ensure your friends and family have your special day in their diary as soon as possible!
Flowers, lighting, DJ’s, the list goes on. Fear not, we have worked with trusted suppliers for years and can recommend companies to help you every step of the way.
Give yourself plenty of time to choose the dress. Many dresses have to be ordered from abroad so you need a good few months from buying to fitting!
The parties! – Engagement party, hen and stag party – plan your guest lists, dates and venues and let the party commence!
Gift registry, website and hashtag
What’s a wedding without a hashtag?! Set up your personalised hashtag to use on social media in the run up and on the day of your wedding. We all love a bit of shopping and this is one of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding – the gift list. Whether you choose a high street retailer or an online gift company ensure you have a variety of price ranges for your guests to choose from. A personalised wedding website if the best way to keep your guests up to date with all your vital wedding information.
Send your invitations – Invites should be sent out at least 8 weeks prior to your wedding day with the RSVP within 4 weeks of the date.
