Say ‘I do’ sooner rather than later

Say ‘I do’ sooner rather than later

7 August 2018

Looking for a wedding venue in Leeds without the lead time? There are many reasons for wanting to get married sooner rather than later, you may be relocating for work, or have friends and family moving abroad. You may be someone who just isn’t keen on having a long lead time once you’ve decided to get married.

Here are a few tips on how to successfully plan a short lead time wedding:

Know your numbers

This will help you select a venue which can cater for all your guests, no matter how many or how few.

Check available dates

Have a couple of dates in mind, and check availability with your venue. If your chosen date is free, book it to secure it. If you’re having a civil ceremony, you’ll need to ensure the Registrar is available on your selected date, and get this booked too.

Consider the location and accessibility

If you’re looking for a wedding venue in Leeds, you’ll want to know all your guests can park at the venue without any issues. A wedding venue with overnight accommodation can ensure those travelling from further afield can enjoy the celebrations.

Catering options

Does your chosen venue offer a range of food options to meet your requirements, whether that’s a traditional sit down meal, or more informal buffet? You’ll want to choose your food options and cater for any dietary requirements.
