Ready to start planning?
Use our handy guide to planning your special day, stress free...
Set your budget – Talk to each other and decide how much you can, and want to, spend. The earlier you do this the easier it will be to plan all the other details. Why not do it over a nice dinner?
Get inspired – Pinterest, Instagram, bridal magazines all help you get ideas for a look and theme you might follow.
Start your guest list – A rough idea of how many to invite so you can decide on venue/wedding room size.
Think about dates – An idea of the time of year you’d like to get married will help when looking at venues.
Choose a venue – Book a wedding appointment at Oulton Hall and let us show you why we’re the perfect venue for your magical day.
Send save the dates – Ensure your friends and family have your special day in their diary as soon as possible!
Suppliers – Flowers, lighting, DJs, the list goes on. We have worked with trusted suppliers for years and can recommend companies to help you every step of the way.
The dress or wedding outfit – Give yourself plenty of time to choose the dress. You need a good few months from buying to fitting!
Gift registry – Make sure you have a variety of price ranges for your guests to choose from. Got everything you need? Lots of gift sites allow guests to make contributions towards your honeymoon.
Website – Creating a simple personalised wedding website is the best (and most sustainable!) way to keep your guests up to date with all your vital wedding information.
Booking your honeymoon – Are you jetting straight off after the cake has been cut or waiting a few months to take your honeymoon? Some exotic destinations are in their off season during British summertime so it’s becoming popular to enjoy a ‘minimoon’ for a few days before a more extravagant trip further down the line.
The parties! – Engagement party, hen and stag party – plan your guest lists, dates and venues and let the party commence. Explore our full collection of hotels across Great Britain here.
Send your invitations – Invites should be sent out at least eight weeks prior to your wedding day with the RSVP within four weeks of the date.
Final details – We’ll work with you to ensure all the little details are taken care of so you can relax in the run up to your big day.
The big day itself – Your day has arrived and our team is ready to bring your dream wedding to life, so take the time to enjoy each and every minute! Things can get hectic so make sure you carve out a few special moments for you and your partner.
