How to make the most of an exclusive-use wedding venue

Your wedding is the most magical and memorable day of your life. Choosing an exclusive-use wedding venue will ensure privacy on your big day by making sure that your venue is reserved solely for you and your guests. This means that you don’t need to worry about sharing your venue with another couple or having random people wandering around your venue’s grounds on your wedding day. To help you plan the perfect wedding, here are some useful tips on how to make the most of an exclusive-use wedding venue.

Create wedding signs for your big day

Wedding signs are a fantastic way to personalise your venue and provide useful information for your guests. They can also complement your wedding theme and be used to create some beautiful photo opportunities! Wedding signs are particularly well suited to vintage or shabby chic themed weddings set in barns or country manor houses, but they can look great in any type of wedding. Many couples choose to create an order-of-the-day sign to provide guests with an outline of what to expect i.e. the time of the drinks reception and when they will be seating for the evening meal. You can find inspiration for wedding signs by reading wedding blogs or looking on sites like Pinterest.

Pick a meaningful theme

Lots of couples choose to plan their wedding day around a particular theme. Having a wedding theme will allow you to personalise your venue and create a wedding style that suits you and your partner’s personalities. You can also make your special day even more fun by asking your guests to dress up to suit your chosen theme. Some of the most popular wedding themes trends in 2020 include city weddings, sustainable weddings, and maximalism weddings. Alternatively, you could also choose a quirky and non-traditional theme that is meaningful to you and your partner. This may be centred about your favourite food, film, musical, animal, or anything else you can think of – the possibilities are endless when it comes to wedding themes!

Provide fun wedding entertainment

No wedding would be complete without entertainment! If your exclusive-use venue has beautiful grounds, then take full advantage of the outdoor space by providing your guests with fun garden games such as giant Jenga, croquet, or ring toss. Buying or renting garden games for your wedding is an affordable way to provide your guests with fun entertainment during the day. Try to tailor your wedding entertainment to suit you and your partner. For instance, if you both enjoy going out and playing drinking games, then you could set up a beer pong tournament in your venue’s grounds or offer guests a create-your-own drinks bar. If you are foodies, then consider providing a sundae station or offering food stations with delicacies from around the world. During the evening, create a party atmosphere by hiring a DJ or live band. Having each guest choose a song for your wedding playlist is a great way to get everyone up dancing and ensure that there is music that everyone will enjoy.

Create the wow factor with your wedding decor

Choosing an exclusive-use wedding venue gives you the freedom to truly go all out with your wedding decor and create the wedding style you’ve always wanted. You can easily create the wow factor with finishing touches such as flower arches, lighting backdrops, confetti cannons, and personal touches like photo collages. If your venue allows it, then planning a firework display can be a beautiful way to end your wedding day and impress your guests.

Planning a wedding can be stressful and there are many different elements to organise. For that reason, you should always choose an exclusive-use wedding venue that offers tailored support and planning guidance.
