The wedding is one of those special days that should only come along once in a lifetime. So how do you make it really stand out and how do you make the wedding reception shine.
Here are a few ideas
1. Hire a castle.
A castle can be an amazing backdrop for a wedding. It is steeped in history and tradition and can make a great backdrop for a wedding. It will make the wedding pictures really stand out. For my wedding we booked the Great Hall at Caerphilly Castle and organised our own outside caterers. Itmade for a very memorable day. The only downside was that we had to be flexible on the day and so we booked a Friday as the day for our wedding.
2. Have a reception on a boat
A boat makes a great venue for a wedding reception and has a great novelty factor. It has the added advantage that the scenery changes as you go along. My bother booked a boat for his wedding and we were able to cruise along the River Severn.
I would imagine that you would need to be careful of taking a boat out to sea in case any of the guests get sea-sick.
3. Hire a country house
Fo a really intimate wedding you could take over a country house for a wedding. If you plan far enough in advance you could get exclusive use of the house including accomodation for the night before and the night after.
4. Book some entertainment.
A magician can add a nice touch and can be a great way to amuse the kids. Booking a band can be a nicer touch to booking a disco. If you want you could always book a tribute band. Where possible I would suggest that you always get the chance to watch the band or the magician in action before you book them. Watching a video tape will not do this for you.
5. French Chateau
A French Chateau would make a pretty impressive venue for a wedding. You could book a chateau and combine it with a holiday away with all of your families and friends.
6. Football stadium
If the groom is a big football fan then you may want to look at booking the stadium (or a hospitality box) for part of the stadium.
