Planning a wedding is an extremely exciting and special moment after getting engaged. The venue you pick as your wedding location plays a huge role in the running of the day, along with holding many memories for years to follow!
Here at Landed Houses, we want to make your day as special as possible by helping you find the perfect venue! We have a great collection of large wedding venues to suit all budgets and understand the importance of planning your day. Read on for tips for finding your dream wedding location.
Before considering the location itself, it’s good to start with an idea of the size of your party. Our houses are used to hosting big parties, but you may chose a smaller gathering of close friends and family. You certainly won’t want to book something too big or too small, so make a list of the people you’d like to invite, to gauge a rough idea of how many people might be attending. This will really help when visiting a venue and give you confidence in knowing if it will accommodate everyone comfortably.
There are so many options when it comes to the location, it can often be overwhelming! Using Landed Houses, you can browse our large collection of wedding venues to suit your budget, from romantic moated manor houses to country barns. Select the geographical location and take the time to book in a visit. We have magical properties all over the UK, from the Scottish Highlands, to the beaches of Cornwall. All of our wedding venues offer a room for the ceremony, but if you’d like a nearby village church, that can be arranged!
If you’re the owner of a potential venue and your property fits our portfolio, be sure to get in touch too!
Unlike a large hotel, quite a few of our houses only offer a few weddings a year, so they have time to really work with you and achieve your dream wedding location, something which is worth bearing in mind. Picking a date far enough in advance will give you plenty of time to plan, and eliminate last minute stress. The staff at our properties are ready to help you pick a date which works perfectly for you and no matter what time of year you’d like, they offer gorgeous views of the British countryside; settings that will make your wedding unforgettable.
During your wedding planning process, you’ll have worked out your budget for a venue, so we’d recommend aiming to stick to it. The wedding location is often the largest cost, but be open to some flexibility, as you may decide you want to hire the venue for the whole week or weekend and accommodate your close friends and family too to maximise the celebrations!
We hope this has helped with giving you an idea of what to keep in mind when venue hunting for your big day. If you’d like to learn more or ask us for further advice, be sure to get in touch!
