As a Southern Highland wedding photographers people always ask me about locations and venues to best hold their special day because choosing a wedding venue is one of the most important and difficult decision for any newly engaged couple. Stephanie from one of the Southern Highlands most established wedding venues Milton Park Country House takes us through 4 great tips to help make for a perfect wedding reception without breaking the budget. We asked Stephanie the most important questions that every bride and groom should be aware of before locking in their special wedding venue.
1: What are the top three issues that couples should consider before choosing a wedding venue?
– Does the venue provide a wet weather option?
– Is there guest accommodation onsite?
– What does the venue provide, i.e. tables, chairs, catering?
2: What tips would you recommend for Southern Highland couples to ensure a smooth wedding reception?
Ensure the venue assists in the planning towards the lead up of your day such as providing run sheets, floor plans, tastings and overall direction – this reduces a lot of pressure and stress, it should be a fun experience for the bride and groom not a stressful one!
3: What trends are you starting to see for Bowral/Southern Highlands wedding receptions?
The country vintage theme is very popular at the moment we see a lot of glass jars wrapped in twine – a great touch for flowers and candles! Garden Party style receptions consisting of outdoor games such as croquet, giant chess, lawn bowls and lounge areas surrounded by twinkling fairy lights in trees.
