Your wedding day should be a celebration of your union and a tribute to your time together as a couple. This means planning a wedding is no easy feat! There are are so many things to consider during the planning process, and even the most organised brides and grooms can become overwhelmed.
Whether you want your big day to be well and truly outside of the box or are looking for a classic celebration, we provide the ideal setting to make your wedding day dreams come true. Leez Priory is a stunning Tudor manor house set in some 40 acres of parkland. Alongside its manicured gardens and picturesque lakes, Leez Priory offers a picture-perfect location for ceremonies and receptions, from intimate to grandiose.
However, there are many more items on your wedding planning checklist that must be ticked off before you can sit back and enjoy your celebration in all its glory. In this blog post, the team behind Leez Priory reveals the five steps every couple should take to create the wedding they’ve always dreamed of.
Look for inspiration
You may have a very clear idea about what you want your wedding to look like. Unfortunately, communicating this vision to suppliers to execute your plan is another story. Sit down and put all your ideas onto paper, ironing out the basics before you attempt the finer details. Create a mood board with clippings from your favourite magazines or print-outs from online resources to bring your vision to life.
Our blog is full of inspiration for those currently planning their wedding days. Our real weddings in particular provide a glimpse into how previous couples celebrated at Leez Priory.
Establish the basics
The what, where, how and why of your big day should always be answered in the early days of planning. No aspect of your wedding should be left to chance so make sure all bases are covered. Source the right vendors and suppliers that will help you achieve these aims. By establishing the basics, you can also work within your means.
Make it a joint effort
Your dream wedding should reflect both of your tastes. Communicate with your partner throughout the entire process. During the inspiration-gathering phase, and basic planning and budgeting, have regular sit downs with your better half to determine whether the plans you’re making are what you both want. This essential tip will ensure you not only create the wedding that you’ve always dreamed of, but plan a special day that you can both look back proudly on.
Take it one step at a time
Whether you have a few months or a few years to plan your dream day, taking it one step at a time will ensure you don’t miss a trick. Your dream wedding isn’t just about the venue, food, wedding attire and entertainment (although these little touches will make a big difference too). Take the wedding planning process in your stride, avoiding the pressure can overwhelm some couples. The planning process shouldn’t be hectic or tiring, it should help you discover more about your strengths as a couple. Include the details that show off these assets to your guests on the big day.
