After hosting a lovely couple recently, whose venue suddenly went into liquidation and left them without a place to celebrate their wedding, it made us start thinking about what exactly is covered by your wedding insurance and how easy it is to find the right one for you.
The Great Barn Devon, sits amongst acres and acres of gardens, farmland and woodland, nestled in a little hamlet. It’s the most gorgeous of settings and a true memory-maker for any bride and groom. So, when 200 guests arrive en masse and, as the mighty Prince one said, “Party like it’s 1999!”, just how do you give them a truly awesome celebration without upsetting the neighbouring residents and farm animals? The answer? A silent disco.
The preparation and planning of a wedding, and more so, the wedding day itself, is full of traditions. Passed down from generation to generation; some worldwide, some personal, family traditions. Things like not seeing the bride before the ceremony, the giving and receiving of rings, receiving lines and of course, the wedding favour.
Catering for your wedding guests can be a delicious but stressful minefield. Deciding on whether to serve a three-course wedding breakfast or a belt-busting all-you-can-eat buffet is only half the quandary. Depending on what time of day you get married, can mean the difference between one or two (or sometimes even more) servings of food.
So, you’ve set the date to marry the one you love, you’ve chosen your maid of honour and even started looking at wedding gowns. But have you considered the ceremony itself? And have you been able to choose a venue that can give you the wedding ceremony of your dreams?
Weddings needn’t be stressful, but somewhere along the way, there’s always a little bump in the road. Drawing up a wedding guest list seems like a simple task – just invite everyone you want to see you get married, surely?
