Covid-19 regulations are due to be lifted at the end of June, so fingers crossed it will soon be full steam ahead again for the wedding industry! So if you’ve had a lockdown engagement and aren’t sure where to start with your wedding planning, here are a few ideas for how to create the perfect Norfolk wedding with NH Events.
Step 1: Start a wedding folder! Keep everything in one place and get organised. Start looking through bridal magazines (Norfolk Brides is a great one) to get some wedding inspiration and begin imagining what your dream day will look like!
Step 2: Work out your budget, guest list and wedding date! Do you want a summer or winter wedding? How many people do you want at your ceremony and reception? Who will be in your wedding party? How much do you have to spend to create your special day?
Step 3: Choose your venue! There are so many great Norfolk wedding venues and a real variety to choose from so book in some viewings and find your perfect wedding venue! Why not choose a gorgeous converted barn like Hunter’s Hall in Swanton Morley? Or for a more modern reception venue, why not try the stunning windowed Garden Room at The Norfolk Mead Hotel in Coltishall? For something more cultural, how about hosting your wedding at the beautifully converted Pentney Abbey? Or for something more unique, why not check out the West Lexham Glamping Venue?
Step 3: Throw an engagement party! Who doesn’t love an excuse for a party! What better way to celebrate your engagement with your friends and family than hosting a party to get you all together? It’s an especially great idea if you are planning a long engagement before your wedding. Don’t forget to book NH Events for some great tunes!
Step 4: Send the invitations! There are some great local craftspeople who can create your wedding stationery.
Step 5: Book the caterer and photographer! What’s a wedding without good food and an album of beautiful photos to remember your day? Do you want formal or informal dining? There are so many options from fish n chip vans, hog roasts, paellas and barbeques to afternoon teas and sit down meals. Don’t forget the wedding cake too!
Step 6: Book the entertainment! Don’t go anywhere else – NH Events is the place to be! We offer evening-only or all-day Wedding Disco Packages, which can be tailored to suit your budget and venue. NH Events can be a one-stop shop for your wedding day entertainment so get in touch today for a no-obligation quote.
Step 7: Make it personal! Think about all the personal touches that will make this your special day. Choose your dress, rings and groomsmen and bridesmaid outfits. What wedding transport do you want? Do you want a florist and hair/make-up? How will you decorate your venue? Choose your music for the day – the right playlist is key to ensuring you and your guests have a good time! Don’t forget to choose a first dance song too!
Whatever you choose for your wedding day, the most important thing is that you both enjoy it! We hope this short list has given you a few ideas to begin with – congratulations again on your engagement and good luck with the wedding planning! We look forward to entertaining at your wedding soon!
