🌳 VENUE HUNTING! 😩
This weekend we headed back to the countryside to visit a few different venues for our reception. We purposefully chose 3 pretty different places - a DIY barn, a local cafe/restaurant and a more formal venue with gardens - as we weren’t 100% sure what we were after 🙃
It’s safe to say we learnt a lot! It became pretty apparent that we wanted something that was as little hassle/effort/work as possible for us, as well as somewhere with lovely surroundings for our family and friends to enjoy (as well as for those all important photos!).
We’re pretty sure we found the place from the 3 we visited but it’s not 100%... so we won’t say so that we don’t jinx it 😇 😂
The thing we found the hardest: Finding somewhere that wouldn’t cost the earth! 🌎 We don’t have a huge budget, so after narrowing down our Google searching based on that, we weren’t left with a huge range of options. As we’re also getting married in a church in a tiny village, we couldn’t choose somewhere too far away as we don’t want guests driving for hours.
Top tip: Don’t get disheartened if you see venues that don’t work for you. It can be frustrating and feel like wasted time, but we tried to take away some learnings from it. If you don’t like a particular aspect of a venue, you know that that’s something to consider for future venues and can help you be more refined (for us - it was the outdoor areas 🌲🌳🍃) #wedding #weddingprep #wedmin #weddingplanning #weddinginspo #weddingstyle #weddingfun #easyweddings #weddingday #instagram #wearegettingmarried #engaged #couple #fiance #bride #groom #love #couplegoals #bridetobe #futurewife #futuremrs #love #photooftheday #kent #countryside #venue #weddingvenue
