Are you planning on popping the question this festive season or have you just got engaged? What an immensely exciting time! Planning a wedding is a lot of fun, however, it can sometimes be a daunting task to embark on! We have a lot of experience in helping couples to plan for their big day and have a few tips to get you going and make it all run smoothly.

Set a timetable

As soon as that announcement is made, people will be keen to congratulate you and will ask the question “so when is the big day?” Before you can make any major decisions and set a date one of the most important decisions to make is choosing and booking your dream venue. Here at Talhenbont, Alicia will be able to work with you as a couple to find a date that works for not only you but your friends and family. A few things to think about include major events or family holidays that you may want to avoid. Also think about how long you want to plan your wedding, you often need longer than you think!

Set your budget

It is important to talk through financing your wedding. This may involve just you and your partner or your families too. You need an overall figure which you can then begin to work with on how you will spend it. There are some great money saving options, such as mid week weddings or out of season dates. All of which are on offer at Talhenbont.

Choose and book your venue

Before you do anything else, you need to choose and book your venue. Don’t get carried away trying on wedding dresses, picking cakes or booking your photographer. Your choice of wedding venue is crucial to your big day. Your venue should suit you as a couple. At Talhenbont the bespoke wedding service and flexible nature of the spaces on offer mean that every wedding is different.

Draft your guestlist

Once you know how where your wedding is going to be, it’s time then to sort out your guestlist. It may be that you decide upon a intimate wedding breakfast and huge evening “do.” We can work with your budget and offer advice on how best to cater for everyone. Our Outdoor Terrace is a brilliant spot for those looking to invite large numbers for the whole day and the Coach House can seat 150.

Work with your Wedding Planner.

Perhaps the best bit of advice is to work closely with your wedding planner. Here at Talhenbont, Alicia, our weddings and events manager, can offer expert advice and support from the moment you arrive at Talhenbont. We go that extra mile to make for our couples, from bespoke tasting evenings with our caterer to putting you in touch with our carefully curated list of brilliant companies and individuals that we know are brilliant to work with. Alicia is also a great sounding board for any ideas that you may have. At Talhenbont we aim to make anything possible.
