Blue Mountains wedding tips and advice
Your wedding is special, and we understand that. So here are some tips to help you choose that perfect Blue Mountains location, and let your wedding day go as smoothly as possible.
Location is the key. You and your guests need to be able to get to the venue easily, without worrying about parking, transport and other such hassles. You can have the most beautiful outdoor location in the world, but it doesn’t do your guests any good if they have to park five kilometres away.
You can be as whacky as you like with theme and location, but at the same time your guests must feel comfortable and welcome. So keep up traditional protocols. Greet your guests in the entrance way, making sure it is from someone involved in the wedding, not a staff member of the venue. You can even offer them a glass of wine you like. Importantly, make sure the venue has plenty food on hand for your guests to enjoy.
Music and Audio
Your guests want good music, and they want to be able to hear wedding speeches clearly. So you must choose a venue suitably equipped with a quality music system and microphone.
Many of your guests will be nicely dressed and will want to check their hair and do their makeup, or they may want to use other facilities. So make sure your venue has adequate facilities to meet your guest’s needs. Also remember, it is customary for the bride and groom to change to regular formal clothing after their first dance and wedding speeches, and you don’t want to be doing this out in the open!
Less is more
Don’t go overboard! Simplicity is the order of the day. A simple plain venue gives you more freedom to express your creativity to decorate the area however you want too and stand out. A simple hotel function room is more than sufficient.
