All women have dreamed of their big day at some point in their life. It usually begins in primary school as a little girl. You think of horses and carriages, a big princess dress, a sparkly tiara and your prince charming – although he doesn’t seem to matter that much because most boys are considered ‘yuck’ at that age. Then when you start to get older and you think you have met the man of your dreams you envisage walking down the aisle with him and how your name would sound with his surname following it. And then, once your boyfriend puts the ring on your finger, you get the opportunity to make these dreams a reality.
When you get married you make a lifelong commitment. Your wedding celebration is one day that marks the rest of your life together. It is a huge occasion and something you only plan on doing once. Therefore, when you do become the luckiest girl on the planet, it is important to plan your wedding to perfection. You want every last detail to be a success. And this article will help you to ensure that is the case.
The first thing you need to do is find the perfect venue for your wedding reception. There are lots of great event venues to choose from. First things first – find out whether it is available on your chosen date. Aside from this, it must be able to house the number of people on your guest list, as well as being suitable for your wedding entertainment. Once you have gotten all of these practicalities out of the way you can then consider the fun stuff e.g. what the venue looks like. Do you want somewhere funky and modern? Or would you prefer somewhere traditional and elegant? The choice is completely up to you. But one thing is for sure; you won’t be short of options. Let’s take a glimpse at the capital! The following is just a mere handful of some of the best London event venues for wedding receptions; Cutty Sark, Banqueting House, Foundling Museum, Old Billingsgate, Saatchi Gallery, One Marylebone, Trinity House, Battersea Power Station and Dorney Court.
Once you have decided on a venue the next thing you need to do is find a caterer. There are a lot of venues who will put on the catering for you if you desire. However, a lot of people like to take the time and effort to seek a caterer of their choosing. If you have a specific idea of what you’d like to serve, go for someone who expertises in this area. Creative catering ideas include; a hog roast, ice cream vans, oriental themed food, and fish and chips.
And finally, another area of consideration is the decoration of the venue. Pick a colour theme of no more than three colours and stick to it. Don’t overcomplicate things – too many colours and styles can end up making the venue look cluttered and confused. Look for innovative table centrepieces, such as balloons, and don’t forget to pick beautiful chair covers and stunning sashes.
If you find the perfect venue, a top quality caterer and decorate your venue beautifully; then you have managed to sort the three main parts of your wedding reception planning. A successful event is assured!
