8. Top tip for choosing your perfect wedding venue…

Choose the venue that you ‘feel’ is right for you. You will have that special feeling the moment you visit! If it is over your budget, then consider any current special offers and always look at mid-week dates, especially those close to Bank Holidays (your guests can take just a couple of days leave from work and have a 5 or 6 day break).
