These packages often offer excellent value for money, especially if you are not holding the marriage service at a church. You will usually be given a wedding liaison representative from the venue and be able to talk through exactly what each package offers you.
There will be slight variations but most will include some alcohol, a meal (or two) and some form of entertainment in the evening. If you are marrying at the venue they will provide outside and inside options to cover all weather eventualities.
The more expensive options will include the little extras such as more alcohol per table, decorative table centrepieces and a master of ceremonies. Of course it’s entirely possible to provide all these little extras yourself.
With this version sourcing most of the furniture, the venue and the marquee will be down to you to locate. This isn’t as tricky as it sounds and once you have the field and the marquee booked in, you should then be able to find a catering company to provide you with a food, bar and all the furniture that’s needed.
The cost will be cheaper but much of the hard work will be done by you. For many couples getting everything done exactly the way they like it has its appeal.
If you’re really looking to push the boat out then no look no further than the destination wedding. Fulfil your dream of tying the knot while barefoot on warm white sounds with a lazy blue ocean forming the backdrop of your nuptials.
There are some obvious drawbacks to this of course. The greatest one being the cost but you may also run up against some opposition from family and friends who can either not afford to join you or who would be unable or unwilling to take the time off work.
To get this done properly requires plenty of advance notice and you must ensure that you choose a wedding company that has a long history of planning weddings abroad.
With luck, you’ll only get married once so choosing the right venue is a crucial part of the process. Whether you choose a venue that will take care of the majority of the planning for you or decide to go it alone, your wedding is as unique as the two of you and should be your special day in your special place.
