We love all garden weddings, from the ones on rooftop terraces in the centre of London to rustic celebrations in the countryside. Pretty scenery and beautiful natural landscapes mean that you can embrace a less-is-more approach when it comes to decorating. That being said, there’s a significant amount of legwork and orchestration that goes into planning an al fresco celebration. To make things a lot easier for you, we’ve listed a couple of garden wedding tips below.
Some expert tips for organising your garden wedding:
Prepare your guest list in advance – It’s an important step toward establishing a budget. This will help you pick the right sized garden wedding venue, too!
Plan the spendings wisely – Allocate the majority of your budget to venue hire, food and drink.
Think of your guests’ needs while arranging the agenda – Schedule speeches throughout the meal so guests don’t have to sit for long periods without getting up (and don’t stand for too long either).
Keep the London weather in mind – Don’t forget to make a contingency plan for rain! Many garden wedding venues have special on-site facilities for such cases, so it’s always good to ask the manager if they’re prepared to handle emergencies of this kind.
Things to consider when hiring a garden wedding venue in London:
ease of accessibility for the elderly or disabled
time of the event (aim to schedule your ceremony after the hottest part of the day so the sun won’t be so strong for your guests)
lighting (this is key for events that carry on into the evening)
the audio system (garden weddings can be demanding in terms of getting the sound right, so remember to double check everything before the event starts)
any cancellation fees (it’s better to avoid the surprise)
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
