Simple Tips When Planning Your Wedding

Simple Tips When Planning Your Wedding


Wedding planning have you losing your mind? You’re not alone! The process of planning your wedding day is arguably one of the most stressful experiences we go through in our lives. For every moment of excitement and anticipation, there are four more filled with uncertainty and anxiety.

Each wedding day is unique and your personal requirements and circumstances will directly influence the planning process. Having been awarded multiple times for our wedding venue and facilities, we know a thing or two about the planning of this momentous occasion. Need some tips? You’re in luck! These are a few of our hints for making your wedding day - and the months leading up to it - even more magical.  

Cover the basics

Before going too far down the rabbit hole of choosing flowers and attending cake tastings, ensure you know the basics of your big day. 

Which season are you aiming for? Spring and summer weddings are typically popular, allowing for beautiful outdoor venues and an overall less daunting planning experience. This also means, however, that venues tend to be booked out much quicker for these dates. In many cases, you’ll also find that you’ll end up paying much more for a summer wedding than one held during the colder months. 

On the other hand, winter weddings offer a chance for stunning indoor venues and the potential for a more intimate experience. Knowing whether or not you’ll require indoor space or want to opt for an outdoor spot is vital when moving onto our next step…

Choosing the perfect venue

There’s no shortage of wedding venues, catering for a wide range of needs and preferences. The Knightsbrook Hotel & Spa is honoured to have been awarded multiple times for our excellent wedding venue and services. 

Whether you’re in the market for a lavish ballroom to host a large number of guests, or need an intimate, cozy space for close friends and family to gather, our selection of halls offers something for everyone. Browse our variety of options today to find the one that works for you!

When looking for a wedding venue, it’s essential to have a clear idea of what you’ll need from the space. We all know how important it is to consider the big things like catering and flowers, but don’t forget the smaller yet essential details: parking for guests, sufficient AV equipment, a variety of spaces in which to gather, and proximity to accommodation or main travel routes. 

The good news for those planning to host a wedding at The Knightsbrook Hotel is that guests and the wedding party can be accommodated in a variety of rooms and suites. This eliminates the stress of traveling to your wedding on the day and allows for some additional bonding time with your loved ones. What’s not to love about that?!

We are also fully equipped to cater to any sound or visual requirements you may have, allowing you to focus on making memories rather than worrying about technical details.

Stay organised and keep your final goal in mind

It can be so easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of planning that goes into your wedding day. Keep a folder or checklist handy, with all your notes and sources of inspiration in one place. This gives you an easy way to refer to your to-do list and ensures you don’t leave anything out! 

Being organised in your planning also means that you can focus on the details that truly matter, instead of getting side-tracked by the colour of the tablecloths for four days. At the end of all of this, your wedding day is a chance to spend time with loved ones and celebrate the love you’ve found. 

Ensure your planning allows you to remember this in decades to come. Good lighting, tasteful decor, and high-quality photography means your special day will be captured perfectly. We have a group of highly experienced experts ready to assist you with this, working alongside you to create the ideal backdrop for your wedding day memories.
