Choosing the right venue

Deciding on what's right for your wedding can be tricky. You want the best value, but you also need to consider a few other things too!

  • Space - Choosing a room or marquee too large can affect the general atmosphere of your night. Remember people will want to walk around, mingle and go outside so don't choose a space that's too large.
  • Licensing - Many venues with hotel rooms are limited to a 12am finish. Make sure you check with the venue if you want a later event!
  • Noise restrictions - Marquees, particularly fixed ones usually have restrictions on their noise levels which means any entertainment you book will have to be fairly quiet to prevent the power cutting off! Many have sound limiters which monitor volume and will automatically cut power to the disco if it gets too loud.
  • Smoke - while we don't go crazy on the smoke, a little of it is great for creating atmosphere and creating beams of light that fill the room. Check with the venue to see if they can accommodate this, some modern venues will have a heat-detector instead.
  • Access - Again, as discreet as we are setting up, if you've booked us from 12 noon or before 4, we'll need to set up in the daytime and will require access & some space.
    We'll chat with you about where we can park, unload and set up without disturbing your guests - we need a minimum of 1.5hours in order to set up in the same room as your daytime event - please factor this in if using a single room venue.
  • Catering - Many venues won't allow you to bring in your own caterers, as their insurance generally allows only their staff to use the kitchen facilities. Book a meal there first if possible and do your groundwork!
  • Corkage - Some venues will let you supply your own alcohol, but be aware of corkage fees
  • Location - If your guests are travelling from around the country, look for nearby hotels and check availability before you choose the venue. Sometimes hotels near wedding venues will allocate you a number of rooms for the event at a discount price if you book in advance.
  • 'We use our own DJ' - We know some hotels like to 'use their own DJs' but this is not always the best option. You might feel tied in to using their own entertainment, but our experience tells us you're likely to pay the same price as a professional, but what they don't tell you is they will use a £100 DJ and take the rest of the money themselves. Insist on finding your own entertainment, even if they try to charge you a small fee for doing so. It's your day and you shouldn't feel forced into arrangements you're not comfortable with.
