When you’re planning your wedding, there are a lot of things to worry about. The venue, the guests, the ceremony, the food, the dresses and suits and so much more. However, you can take the stress out of organisation by selecting a wedding venue that offers a range of services bundled into one package. This is something you can find in luxury and economic venues alike. So what things do these packages contain, and why are they an option to consider?
Food and Drink Included
Whilst you can self-cater for your wedding, it’s never quite the same as having everything sorted for you. With wedding packages food and drink can be included, which they can provide from their kitchens with their staff, meaning you don’t have to worry about hiring separate caterers.
Package deals will normally include set menus with a range of options you can try, meaning you’ll have a great variety of food and drink choices to enjoy on your wedding day. Venues will be able to list out every food and drink item they can provide you, based on their package provisions and what they prefer to serve. All you’ll have to do is make your choices and that’s food and drink sorted for the whole day, without having to worry about if the caterers will turn up or you run out of supplies.
A Range of Entertainment
Many wedding packages will offer a number of evening entertainment options that you can choose from. If you’re after a DJ then a DJ hire can be included in a package, and with that comes the sound system, the lights, and even playlists if you require them. Some packages will also give the option of a live band, which is a good choice if you prefer the feel of live music. And with that, the wedding venue will ensure that the setup is there for a live band to perform. It takes the stress out of having to think about the tech as well as having to book the talent.
Everything Kept on Track
Venues that provide comprehensive packages would usually have a master of ceremonies, who will help you to coordinate things throughout the day. They’ll make sure that you’re in the right place at the right time and that everything is happening to schedule. On the day itself, the last thing you’ll want to do is to try to manage everything whilst trying to enjoy your wedding day, and a master of ceremonies will help to take any stresses and strains away from you on your wedding day.
A Location for Ceremonies and Receptions
The first thing you’ll require to make your wedding feel extra special is an exclusive wedding venue. If you’re wanting a civil ceremony for your wedding, then many venues are licensed to carry out civil weddings, so long as you book the registrar.
This means that you can host your wedding ceremony at the same venue as your wedding reception, without the need to waste travel time and spend money on two separate venues. For dedicated wedding venues, it’s likely that different rooms are available to use for your ceremony and reception.
They’re Great Value
Because you’re buying everything in one comprehensive package, the wedding as a whole can be cheaper and have greater value than if you booked each part individually. Venues that offer wedding packages will have regular partners they use, which not only means you can trust things to run smoothly, but it also means that venues will have special rates with those suppliers. In turn, that means they can pass the savings onto you in the form of a wedding package.
