Every wedding is unique and the best way to make sure that your day is special is to take time and care choosing your wedding venue.
If you are opting for a civil ceremony you will, of course require to book a venue that has a licence for civil weddings. You will also have to decide specifically where in the country you will be holding your wedding reception. Town or country? Whichever you decide upon, make sure that there are very good transport links for your wedding guests, and for those who a travelling some way, offer some ideas for local hotels.
If you choose a rural wedding venue with a wedding at a hotel Kent is the perfect county in which to start your search. Of course hotels are not only for weddings! Most will deal with corporate guests as well, and offer both conference and accommodation Kent as a package; this is a positive indicator that they are experienced in welcoming and catering for large numbers of guests so no matter how long your guest list is you can feel confident that the hotel will be able to give you your perfect day.
A few tips for a trouble free wedding and wedding reception.
Make sure that you can dance in your Wedding Dress – a impressive train will look beautiful at the Ceremony but may not work quite as well on the dance floor.
Ensure that your Photographer is well briefed on your specific requirements for the formal photographs following the Ceremony so that guests are not hanging around for ages whilst these are being taken! Appoint a member of both families and give them the responsibility of organising the various guest groups required for these photographs.
Organise your wedding so that younger guests are well looked after. After the Ceremony and Reception many children start to get bored at a grand dinner so if the budget allows create a separate area where they can enjoy a fun meal and be entertained. They can then join the after dinner dancing.
Speeches during the Wedding Breakfast should be short! Encourage all speech makers to rehearse and time their speeches to adhere to your timetable not theirs!
