Choosing a wedding venue is arguably, one of the biggest choices a couple can make when it comes to planning their big day, and the chance of finding one which meets every expectation is a tall order.

Karen James-Watkins of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, shares with us her observations over the last couple of years, reflecting on the notable rise in couples wanting the ability to “build their own” wedding, ensuring their day is unique and personal to them.  

7 steps to planning your wedding reception

Everyone wants their wedding day to be memorable. This means a lot of time, effort and money often goes into the planning of saying “I do”. In fact, according to Money Saving Expert, the average UK nuptial costs around £20,500. Luckily, there are things you can do to keep the total down. A great way is by planning your own reception. Not only will this give you control over your budget, but you’ll also be able to personalise your celebration perfectly.

The Food Factor

The Food Factor

Wedding catering over the last few years has changed dramatically, with many couples opting for a much more laid back approach to the food they serve on their big day. Street food, pop up stalls, BBQs and festival-inspired catering trucks are some of the most popular styles of catering at the moment.

Not only is this option budget-friendly, it’s relaxed, quirky and memorable. Whether it is fish and chips, freshly baked pizzas, or even doughnuts or ice creams, this style of wedding catering offers brides and grooms the opportunity to have a much more laid back feel to their wedding day.
