Book Early. Finally, once you’ve spent time searching for your perfect wedding venue, and you’re happy you’ve found your dream day, most places get booked well in advance, often years in advance. Don’t get disappointed, book your wedding venue early, or at least get yourself pencilled in their diary and ask that they call you immediately if any other wedding couple enquires about YOUR date!
Unless you’re planning a wedding in a hurry, then take your time to visit a few different venues, ask them how many guests they can seat for the wedding ceremony, ensure this fits with your plans. There is little point looking at a venue that can only sit 40 people for the ceremony if you are planning on inviting 150 guests to your special day. The other thing to check is whether or not the wedding venue is yours solely for the day, or whether other weddings are planned. You may not want to have your photos rushed because the next bride is arriving any moment. A lot of wedding venues in offer either the entire venue or an area where no other visitors will be able to access – determine what you want on your wedding day and make sure you plan this accordingly.
There are a wide range of different styles to choose from, from restaurants to rustic barns or boutique hotels to former palaces. Be warned that unfortunately, as is so often the case, you tend to get what you pay for. Furthermore, peak season Saturdays will usually be booked up 9 months or more in advance, so in order to secure the best venues it is important to either be flexible with the wedding date or start your venue search a year or so in advance. Be warned!
When it comes to the evening reception, ask the venue if they provide any entertainment, many wedding venues in Essex have their own resident DJ. Check whether this means you have to use their DJ or whether you can hire your own. Again this may make a difference in the cost of hiring the particular venue.
