Every wedding is individual and the best way to ensure your special day is to take time and care selecting your wedding venue. If you are opting for a civil ceremony you will, of course need to reserve a venue that has a licence for civil weddings. You will also have to decide exactly where in the country you will be organising your wedding reception. Town or country? Whichever you decide upon, make sure that there are good transport links for your guests, and for those who a travelling some distance, offer some suggestions for local accommodation.
If you opt for a rural wedding venue with a wedding at a hotel Kent is the perfect county in which to begin your search. Of course hotels are not just for weddings! Most will deal with corporate guests as well, and offer both conference and accommodation Kent as a package; this is a sure sign 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 assured that the hotel will be able to give you your perfect day.
Tips for a worry free wedding and wedding reception:
Make sure that you can dance in your Wedding Dress – a magnificent Train will look stunning 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 formal dinner so if the budget allows create a separate area where they can have a fun meal and be entertained. They can then join in the after dinner dancing.
Speeches during the Wedding Breakfast should be short! Encourage all speech makers to rehearse and time their speeches to stick to your timetable not theirs!
