5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Wedding Venue

It’s your big day, and you want everything to be perfect. You want your guests to be comfortable, happy and well fed, you want everything to look fabulous, and you want the proceedings to run like clockwork. One of the most important decisions you’ll make is where to hold your special event. We’re here with a helping hand, so take a look at our guide to choosing the perfect venue:

Originality

You want your wedding venue to stand out, and to be memorable for you and all your guests. Many couples want their venue to have a sense of history and character, which makes for a great talking point. This also gives your wedding a great sense of atmosphere, as well as unique and beautiful photographs. Our 15th century gothic church, with its ruined entrance, is the perfect example of a unique venue.

Location

We understand you’re most likely to choose a venue for its visual appeal, however, there are a few other factors to consider. Can your wedding and reception be held in the same place? Is transport convenient for you and your guests? Is there the opportunity for a Plan B if proceedings are affected by the weather? Is there accommodation nearby for guests who have travelled the distance?

Your wedding and reception can be held at Dunglass Estate, in our marquee during the warmer months or a close-knit celebration in the luxurious Dunglass House. We can accommodate 31 guests within a close proximity and help you to organise a bus either locally or into Edinburgh.

Practicality

Your wedding should be a romantic, magical day, but considering a few practical factors will make everything run smoothly. To do this, you need to consider what’s important to you – do you need enough space for a sit down meal for 150? Or is it intimate enough for a small party of 20? Is there a well-stocked bar serving drinks at reasonable prices? Dunglass Estate can accommodate both small celebrations of 22 guests, to larger parties of up to 250 for evening marquee receptions.

Catering

Whether you’re going for a traditional dinner or having a hot finger buffet, getting the best caterer is essential. This will allow you to create a personalised menu that reflects your tastes and prevents the rumbling of stomachs! For example, Hickory can create a bespoke menu, using the best seasonal and local produce around, suited perfectly to your taste and theme.

Value

Value can mean making your money stretch further, or paying that little bit extra for spectacular scenery or a particularly memorable location. Make sure you ask all of the right questions when discussing this with your wedding planner – getting the right answers will give you the chance to make decisions suited to you, your partner and your budget. We’ve a range of wedding offers to suit all tastes and budgets. Have a chat with our talented and experienced Wedding Planners about your big day.
