If you're struggling to find a wedding venue that suits your style, why not consider a wedding marquee instead? Marquees come in all shapes and sizes, providing you with a completely blank canvas to create your perfect wedding reception. They provide greater flexibility without breaking the budget, and with less unexpected costs than many traditional wedding venues.
Putting together the guest list can be one of the trickier tasks of wedding planning. Making decisions on how many people you want there, or can afford, and who gets an invite can cause tension, none more so than the decision on whether to invite children. Some couples love the idea of having children at their wedding and can't imagine celebrating the day without them. While other couples can't think of anything worse than having a tribe of little ones running around their feet and terrorising their guests.
Have you thought about what kind of wedding ceremony you and your partner would like? Traditionally, weddings in Ireland were held on a Saturday and were a church affair, but now there are a lot more options available. More and more couples are now opting for non-religious civil or humanist ceremonies.
Agreeing on a guest list can be one of the most difficult parts of wedding planning and is not to be taken lightly as the number of guests you invite can have a huge effect on your budget and the capacity needed at your wedding venue.
Arguing about whether you really need to invite your partner's great-great-uncle who they haven't seen since they were two, or whether your 18-year-old cousin gets a plus one, can make things tense, but these conversations need to be had early on in the planning stage. So, if you are wondering how to decide who to invite to your wedding Well Groomed has put together these practical tips to plan a guest list both your bride-to-be and budget will agree with.
Choosing the right wedding venue is one of the most important decisions that needs to be made and one of ‘The Big 4’ when it comes to planning as a groom. The venue will set the tone for the wedding and, more importantly, this is where the party happens!
