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!
Most wedding venues in Essex not only hold the wedding ceremony, but also allow you to hold your wedding breakfast and of course your evening reception. Again, consider how many guests you will be inviting, and check with the wedding venue how many people they can comfortably seat for the meal. You certainly don’t want your wedding guests crammed in, nor do you want guests shoved somewhere at the back of the venue too far away from the top table. Check with the wedding venue if they have their own caterers or whether you need to look for wedding caterers yourself. This will have a significant impact on the costs of hiring the wedding venue.
However, for most newly engaged couples the task ahead can sometimes seem daunting. For many, the first port of call will be the internet where you can practically lose yourself in a maze of wedding resources. We suggest you spend an hour or two online together and immerse yourselves in this strange new world of weddings. Confetti and Hitched are useful UK resources, among many others, whilst Martha Stewart and The Knot are excellent sites that focus on the American wedding market where lots of our trends first originate.
If you book a wedding venue that does not arrange your catering needs or is simply a hall hire, consider the costs of what else you may need to make it a perfect venue, food, drinks, crockery & cutlery, decorations, DJ, service staff – they all add up. Spend time working out your figures and decide what suits your wedding budget.
