Five Important Questions You MUST Ask When You Visit a Wedding Venue

If you are a bride or groom to be, it’s always difficult knowing what you should be looking for in a venue and even when you do end up visiting one, knowing what to ask!

Here at Lords of the Manor, one of the finest luxury hotels the Cotswolds has to offer, we always look to go that extra mile to help you as much as possible when it comes to planning your big day. We know how stressful and time consuming it can be, which is why we put together events such as our Wedding Open Days to meet you personally and go through any questions that you may have.

Our next Wedding Open Day is coming up on Sunday 30th October so we have put together a little list of questions that you might want to ask when viewing potential wedding venues!

  1. How much scope is there to decorate the venue to fit my scheme?

It’s important that your wedding venue looks exactly as you have envisioned it, it’s your big day and you need it to be perfect! Here at Lords we are very flexible with decorations. For example, all public areas at Lords are decorated with fresh floral arrangements. However, if you would like to change the flowers to suit your colour scheme then we are more than happy to accommodate this. It is also possible for you to meet with our florist who can help with ideas and prices.

  1. Is the venue available for exclusive use?

If you are adamant that your wedding will only be shared by your closest friends and family, then exclusive use of a venue is probably the way to go. At Lords, we offer 3 fantastic packages for exclusive use to ensure that your day runs as smoothly as possible. View the packages here.

  1. How close is the church?

You needn’t worry about how you’re going to get all of your guests from church to reception venue when Lords of the Manor is your chosen venue. This is because the beautiful Church of St Peters is just a 2-minute stroll from the hotel and is able to hold a range of services. So you can all spill out of the quaint little church and take a leisurely stroll back to the hotel.

  1. What dining options are available?

You want to make sure that your guests are not just well fed, but really well fed! That’s no problem here at Lords, thanks to our nifty little Michelin star. We offer a range of fantastic dining options for your wedding from a traditional formal Wedding Breakfast, through to a delightful gourmet picnic in our beautiful grounds.

  1. Are there outdoor spaces available for use?

Speaking of our stunning grounds, we’re more than happy for you and your guests to make the most of them! We have 8 acres of lovely lawns and gardens for you to enjoy with the option of a marquee should you so wish.

If all of this has got you wedding juices flowing, then join us at our gorgeous Cotswold wedding venue on Sunday 30th October for our exclusive Wedding Showcase. Of all the open days and wedding fayres Gloucestershire has to offer, you don’t want to miss out on ours! RSVP here to secure your place and get an exclusive 2-4-1 on Afternoon Tea!
