Our Wedding Venue Open Day Is A Date For Your Diary!

wedding venue open day

As the summer season sets in, so too does that wonderful wedding buzz. Here at Marygreen Manor, we simply adore the glow of an excited bride, the jovial behavior between a groom and his groomsmen. We love watching couples say “I do”, dedicating their lives to one another and celebrating all that it entails with their nearest and dearest. While the wedding day is indeed an important day, and one to be remembered no less, there’s one day that the staff of Marygreen Manor love even more than a wedding and that’s our wedding open days. The air of excitement that takes over our manor house from not just one, but a multitude of excited couples is quite simply heart warming. There’s nothing so beautiful as a newly engaged couple envisioning their day together. With this in mind, we’d like to ask you to put a date in your diary for our next wedding venue open day!

On Saturday 30th September, we’ll be opening our doors for all newly engaged (and not so newly engaged) couples up and down the country. You’ll get to see our full facilities in all their glory, set for the wedding of your dreams from 10am until 4pm. We’ll be offering canapés, Champagne and unbridled viewing of everywhere from our bridal suites to our ceremony halls. You’ll also be privy to some fabulous special offers and discounts on the day.

Why attend our wedding venue open day?

A question we often get asked however, “should I go to a wedding open day?” So we thought we’d address this commonly asked question here by explaining exactly why you should! Here goes;

It’s super fun – while it might sound like a bit of a drag for those who may not be as detail oriented as the next person, wedding open days are great fun. Not only will you get to see the place you’ll (hopefully) be saying “I do” but you’ll also get to enjoy free champagne and canapés. What more could you want?

Take the stress out of your big day – attending our wedding venue open day won’t just give you a glimpse of your wedding venue. It will also give you a glimpse as to how we can help you when it comes to catering, drinks and décor. We’ll help to take the stress out of your day by organising a huge chunk. We may even be able to offer the names of some fabulous suppliers we’ve worked with before in the past.

Feel inspired – not sure how you want your big day to look? Then allow us to show you some of the best ways to decorate our manor house. Take a little inspiration from the experts here at Marygreen Manor and add your own personal twist.

Save money – as we mentioned above, attending our wedding venue open day will mean you’re privy to a few discounts and deals. This will save you more money than you realised; money that could be better spent elsewhere, such as a honeymoon for example?

Ask all the questions you need to – we know only too well in this day and age that finding out information can be tough. The majority of the time, it’s a case of sending emails back and forth until you have all the information you need which, when coupled with jobs and family commitments, can take a while. By attending our open day however, you’ll get to ask all the questions you can think of and receive an answer there and then. No time consuming emails, no back and forth with staff members. Just simple, easy advice and help.

What to expect at a wedding venue’s open day

When it comes to your big day, you taste the cake and you try on the dress to make sure everything’s perfect so why shouldn’t you test out your intended wedding venue too? Attending a wedding venue open day is the perfect time to see for yourself just how your wedding venue could look on the day and as it’s one of the most important days of your life, would you really want to leave it all to chance?

If you’ve spent time house-hunting, then you’ll no doubt know just how easy it is for somewhere to appear impeccable in photographs, only to disappoint hideously in the flesh. A wedding open day, therefore, is a great chance for you to road-test the place you’ll be saying “I do” before you hand over that deposit.

Why attend a wedding venue open day?

Whether you’ve fallen head over heels in love with your dream wedding venue or you’re still trying to find one, attending an open day is the perfect way to see your would-be venue decorated in wedding décor and filled with a great deal of people. It’s no different to a dress that instantly becomes transformed when you slip into it, from its appearance on the hanger. Any wedding venue will have a completely different appearance. In fact, even the most stunning venue such as our very own Marygreen Manor, will look even more spectacular when it’s draped in beautiful flowers, pearls and lace, making it even more spectacular.

Already decided Marygreen Manor is the wedding venue for you? Attending our open day is still a great way to take a peek at décor ideas for your day. It’s perfect for seeing what you do and don’t want too. We suggest carrying a notepad around with you at all times so you can make a note here and there of what you’ve seen. If you ask nicely, you may even be able to take some quick pics too.

What should you expect at a wedding venue open day?

So what should you expect? Well, you should expect plenty of opportunity to ask questions and meet the wedding planners and coordinators. You can also expect an informal look around of the grounds as well as other facilities without the pressure of having to book or make any commitments on the spot. It’s advisable to use your time at the open day to your advantage, so make as many notes as you can, plan your day and come up with as many ideas for wedding photo locations as you can. Check out parking facilities for guests and most of all, pay very close attention to how the venue is presented. You should also inquire about the option to change things if you don’t like what you see.

You’ll no doubt also come across your wedding venues “preferred suppliers” too. This is a great opportunity to see a range of products all under one roof that not only work well with your venue, but also have a great rep already for delivering their product to the spec required. Going with the unknown is great but when you have companies with an established relationship with your venue, it makes sense to take advantage of this.

Last but not least, let’s look at questions you should be asking at your wedding venue open day shall we?

• Will you get exclusive use?
• Where are the best locations for photos on the day?
• Are they licensed for civil ceremonies too?
• Do they have their own registrar?
• What are seated and standing capacities for all rooms?
• Are there any decorating restrictions on the venue?
• What’s guest accommodation like?
• What’s your cancellation policy like?
• Are there any mandatory suppliers?

Here at Marygreen Manor, we’d love for you to attend our next wedding venue open day on Saturday, January 28th.
