Top 3 Tips for Wedding Venue Visits

Are you at the stage in your wedding preparations where your top list of wedding venues has been narrowed down? If so, you may now be wondering where to go from here. While thinning the herd may have been easy, comparing your top choices and making your final decision is bound to be a different story. As such, you’ll need to be well prepared before the wedding venue tours begin, and know exactly what you want if you’d like your venue visits to lead you to the right choice.

In this blog, we are going to provide you with our top 3 tips for wedding venue visits. They’ll be sure to help you balance the fun of having a good day out with your fiance, with the serious business of inspecting your prospective venues with a fine-tooth comb and narrowing down your choice.

So let’s get started…

1. Make Sure you’ve Booked an Appointment

While making a drop-in visit may initially feel like a good idea (because you’ll get to survey the venue without being blinded by the pomp and fanfare associated with scheduled visits), it rarely ever goes well. If you drop in, you may find that there won’t be anyone available to show you around. In addition, you also won’t get to learn all the important details that you would from a scheduled tour, which could result in you missing out on a potentially amazing wedding venue.

2. Don’t Overbook Visits

The worst thing you can do is to schedule a host of visits in one day and jump around from wedding venue to wedding venue. This will take all the fun out of your day out, and make your visits feel like more of a chore than a chance to view beautiful locations with the love of your life. In addition, you may also miss out on some of the most important details about a venue if you’re only spending an hour per visit. Instead, take the scenic route with your wedding venue visits; this will give you the time and experience you’ll need to truly absorb each location.

3. Visit at the Right time

And last, but not least, you should make sure that your visit has been scheduled for the right time. This will give you the chance to take in each venue in the right element. If you’re hoping to have your wedding on a leisurely weekend, don’t choose to visit a venue during the week. This is because you may find the place to be extremely crowded and busy on weekdays, which will influence your decision. However, the location would actually be a whole lot quieter on the weekends.

If you’re looking for superb venues to consider, you should reach out to our company. Here at Clarence House, we have some phenomenal wedding venues that will be sure to take your breath away.

How Long Does It Take To Plan A Wedding

At the best of times, planning your dream wedding is a tremendous feat that requires hard work, dedication, self-control, and organization; for these reasons, it’s bound to take quite a while. However, not everyone’s expected planning timeline is the same. This is mainly because most people lead different lives and are planning their wedding under differing circumstances. For example: If you are fully employed and working a 9 to 5 job, you cannot expect that it will take you the same amount of time to plan your wedding as your friend or neighbour who only works 10 hours a week. So because of these differences and varied factors, it’s important to determine how long it will take “you” to plan your wedding, independent of everyone else.

In this blog, we are going to talk about some of the things that you need to consider in order to determine how long it will take you to plan your wedding. So without further ague, let’s get right into it…

1. What career do you have and what lifestyle

The very first thing that you need to be conscious of when you and your spouse start trying to determine just how long the entire wedding planning process will take (so you can plan out how much time you’ll need to dedicate to said preparation, set a date and determine when to book your venue, your caterer, your cake, etc. and so much more), is your combined lifestyles. What exactly are your careers? How many hours do you spend working? Do either of you have very much free time? All of these questions will help you construct a pretty accurate timeline for your wedding preparations.

For example, if you are fully employed and have very little time to dedicate to wedding planning, it would be advisable to begin said preparations at least half a year in advance. However, if you find that you have a lot more free time on your hands and are willing to put in the work, it may be possible to get everything done within a few months, if not weeks.

2. What are your wedding dreams and desires

Sometimes, the answer to this question can tell you how long it will take to plan your wedding whether you like it or not. Your dreams and desires for your wedding, as well as how flexible you are with these things, will directly impact your timeline. For example, if you have a venue that you’ve always dreamed of hosting your wedding at and this venue must be booked 12 months+ in advance (which a large chunk of the most demanded venues often are), you’ll already have you answer.

Why spend months worry, stressing, and slaving over every single detail of your wedding day when you can have an expert take on that burden for you. Here at Clarence House, we have a full team of wedding professionals that would be happy to help you plan out your big day, and that will cover all your needs and desires, so you won’t have to worry about lifting a finger to make your wedding dreams a reality.

3 Things To Consider Before You Start Planning Your Wedding

Planning a wedding is usually a lot of work, especially if you are hoping to plan an amazing event. It requires wedding planners to be organised and to invest a lot of time and effort. Millions of tasks will need to be co-ordinates all at once, in order for your big day to proceed seamlessly and without a hitch. As such, preparation is often key.

In this blog, we’ll point out 3 key elements that you should consider and plan for way ahead of time, when creating your dream wedding.

1. Likes and Dislikes

Soon after your engagement, unless you have to speed up the wedding planning process for any other reason, you will be afforded a grace period. As such, this will be the time to spend hours with your spouse enjoying your engagement and swooning in the beauty of your new found love. However, this does not mean that you should be idle in this period. During this time, before the wedding planning shenanigans truly get crazy, you should spend a little time talking with your spouse about each other’s preferences. Talk casually about your likes and dislikes in relation to a venue, menu type, colour scheme, décor options, cake flavour and any other wedding details you’ll be planning later. This will help you narrow down your selections before it’s time to make all of the proper decisions, which can save you a lot of time in the future.

2. Consider Your Finances

Next up, as you get into the full swing of wedding planning, it’s very important to start by having a conversation with your spouse about your finances. The money that you have available to spend on your wedding will affect every major decision from your venue, to your theme to your menu etc. As such, it’s very important to come up with a realistic budget at the very beginning. This will help you ensure that your wedding preparations won’t put you into debt.

3. Choose a Date and Venue

At this time, the full work load associated with the wedding planning process will be approaching. As such, it will be very important to make the two most important decisions first, before everything gets crazy. You should spend these final moments selecting a date and venue, then prepare for the onslaught of various wedding details that are sure to follow.

Here at Clarence House, we understand how hard it can be to plan a wedding. As such, we’d like to offer you our services, and help lift that burden so that you can simply enjoy the beauty and love you’ll feel on your big day.
