Lake District Wedding Planning Tips
Our expert wedding planning team love to help new couples navigate the never ending lists that accompany wedding planning, so we have a few tips we would like to share:
Tell People you are Engaged – This is the exciting bit, plan who you need to tell individually, and then you can decide if you want to put out a general announcement either on social media or the local newspapers!
Budgets, Budgets, Budgets – When it comes to wedding planning the most important practical item is your budget. Discuss with your partner and any family that want to contribute what the budget is and then you can make realistic plans, much faster. Start that wedding planning spreadsheet and then you can start looking at what is a ‘must have’ and what is a ‘would like to have.’
Decide on the Wedding Party – Don’t feel pressured on having to include everybody, it is your wedding. Start the list on who definitely needs to be there and work from that. It’s lovely that your friends and family want to be a part of your big day, but it’s also important you take the time to make the right decisions now to avoid any future headaches.
Find Inspiration – Wedding magazines, Instagram, and Pinterest are great places to start finding inspiration for planning your own wedding. Get started creating mood boards and making notes of suppliers that you find and very soon you will see a pattern emerging of your own wedding style.
Pick a Date – You don’t need to pick a date right at the start, but you do need to have some calendar considerations right up front. Are there any days or dates that are special to you that you either want to try and match or avoid, do you have a particular season in which you want to get married in? These considerations will help form when you want to be married.
Find a Venue – Finding the right venue will shape so many of the decisions that you have to make about your wedding. Broadoaks is the perfect venue for a Lake District Wedding, nestled in a secluded spot, not far from Lake Windermere, its house and grounds are the perfect back drop for your amazing day.
Suppliers are Amazing – There are some truly special suppliers out there who can bring your wedding dreams to life. Broadoaks has a great range of recommended suppliers that know and love our venue so they can help you get the most out of your wedding day.
Enjoy the Bubble – You don’t need to have planned your whole wedding in the first 24 hours of being engaged! Or even the first week, month or year! The key thing is to ensure you enjoy the journey and enjoy one another at this exciting time in your relationship.
