What’s great about the Wedding Ideas Awards?

The Wedding Ideas Awards are the highlight of the wedding industry calendar and the one event everyone wants to be at! These awards mean a huge amount to wedding suppliers and couples alike and there is a fantastic buzz around them that we just love! The Awards ceremony itself is always so much fun, too, and we can’t wait to see what the Herd from Wedding Ideas come up with this year!

What are your company’s plans for 2014?

Two-night stays are huge for Country House Weddings in 2014 – we already have many of these booked and they are great fun, from night before dinners to morning pamper sessions and clay pigeon shoots. It’s a fantastic way to celebrate your wedding in style and extend the celebrations that little bit longer.


What are your top three wedding planning tips?

Pick a theme for your wedding

What do you dream of – a relaxed country weekend wedding, a grand fairytale day or a fancy festive affair? Once you decide on your big idea everything else will start to fall into place.

Chose your confidants

Obviously your partner but often it is good to have some other helpers, too – your mum, your sister, your best friend – it’s great to be able to bounce ideas off a third party who won’t get bogged down in all the detail!

Don’t panic!

Make sure you book a venue with in-house wedding planners who can help you with everything from suppliers to timings on the day. Planning a wedding can be daunting but it should be great fun, too!
