Most people would believe that Valentine’s Day is the most popular time for a proposal. However, Christmas Eve has been voted the most romantic day to get down on one knee - which means this coming January; you may well be the one looking at wedding venues and dresses.
First things first, congratulations! Most people only get married once, so it’s time to make it a celebration to be remembered!
Once the romance and gushing have settled down, it’s time to start planning your big day. With the estimated cost of a wedding lying somewhere in the region of £20,000 and £24,000, though, it isn’t hard to see why some people look for alternatives to the traditional wedding scenario.
One of the most popular alternatives to a church or hotel wedding is a marquee event. Many venues charge full price for a wedding that is ultimately in a marquee, so why not cut out the middleman and host your big day in your own back garden.
Providing you have space, marquees allow for more flexibility and control of your wedding. Many venues have restrictions on decorations, flowers, number of guests and the times of your wedding, which can be frustrating.
Choosing to host your own wedding is a beautiful thing in itself. You can theme your day around the existing flowers; investing in water features, statues and balustrading can transform your garden into a grand entrance fit for a queen.
Venue hire is one of the biggest costs of any wedding, so save yourself the hassle and revitalise your garden instead, for the wedding of your dreams. Our range of balustrading is affordable and will dramatically announce your arrival.
Should you have the space available, a water fountain makes for a great talking point and creates a magnificent backdrop for your wedding photographs; just like in a stately home – but for a fraction of the cost.
Here at Tor Stone, we like the idea of killing two birds with one stone; by hosting your big day in your garden, you get to view the memories of your wedding every day, and your garden will look fabulous, too.
