I can imagine that planning a wedding can be a very stressful time. With so many aspects to think about from guests, outfits, food, flowers and of course the venue and so much more. Most people probably start out with the venue as without that, you simply do not have a wedding! I would guess that many people would have ideas in their head about the type of wedding venue they would want to get married in, if they haven’t already discussed with their partners prior to the engagement. Whether it be somewhere you’ve visited together before or a place you’ve always wanted to go, no doubt you will have an image in your head of the kind of place you want to spend your special day. There can be so many traditional or quirky places you can get married and this guide put together should give you the inspiration you need to choose your venue.
I do love the idea of jetting off somewhere warm and getting married on the beach, it all just seems so calm and chilled which is exactly what I like the sound of. Not having to worry about whether it is going to rain seems ideal as no bride wants to walk out for her wedding photos, makeup and hair done to perfection and be soaked through, freezing cold, stood outside trying to get cute scenic pics. The beach is probably my favourite place to go and the thought of getting married there would definitely be up there for me in my top choices. It is just so beautiful and open and the warm weather would be exactly what you want. The issue with a wedding abroad however, can be that not all of your loved ones can attend. Whether they be too old to travel or can’t afford to meet you out there, you may end up not having everyone you’d hoped for be there for your special day.
I’ve seen so many photographs recently on Instagram and Pinterest of people having their weddings in a forest or woodland. I think this is definitely something that has picked up in the recent years and won’t exactly be a traditional venue for many but I think they just look so beautiful. I love the idea of the enchanted forest, lit up by fairy lights with flowers and petals all over. It most definitely looks like something out of a Disney movie to me, so magical and unusual. I can imagine some of the guests not understanding the choice of venue and not liking the thought of sitting on a tree stump for the ceremony, but at the end of the day it is your wedding and your choice. The problem with this, if you’re marrying in a local area, it could end up being very wet as you can never determine how the English weather is going to be.
Country House Wedding
So many people seem to have their weddings in beautiful country houses nowadays. I think the traditional church wedding doesn’t seem as popular as not everyone is religious, and you then have to travel to a different venue for the after party. I’ve been to a few weddings recently in country houses and they have all been so beautiful. The good thing about these kind of venues is there are quite a few around the UK so wherever you live in England there will no doubt be some great places to choose from, with not too far of a drive away. This is always good as you will be expecting your wedding guests to make their own way there. The beauty of these venues is you can have your ceremony and your evening party and your overnight stay all in the same place. Which is great, rather than having to travel in between all day long. With so much choice it can be difficult to pick the perfect place to have your wedding, Bijou Wedding Venues have multiple choices which are all stunning venues, click here to see their options available.
As you can see this is a small portion of what would be available for whatever type of wedding you had in mind. Being organised in advance I would definitely say is key then everything will fall into place, making sure you have the most perfect day.
