Keep Calm and Come to Our Wedding Fair

24th March 2017

When preparing for the biggest day of your life so far, every detail counts, and we know from experience that having everything you need under one roof can be a great help, that’s why we have organised the Hemswell Court Wedding Fair.

This is our guide of how to get the most out of our wedding fair.

  • Have a plan.

What do you want to get from the day?

There are some details that will be vital for suppliers to know, like do you have a date and venue booked? What is your wedding style or are you searching for inspiration?

Knowing what is included by your venue and very importantly what is your budget for the big day?

  • Who you bring with you could affect just how successful your day at the fair will be.

It might seem like a good idea to bring all of your bridal party along with you, but limiting the number of people joining you might be for the best.

If you bring a large entourage you may find you get swept up in how they all find the whole experience rather than staying focused on what you are there for. Too many opinions can also lead you away from your vision for your special day. So make sure you take along a small, select group of people that are as excited as you are, but focused on planning your wedding your way!

  • Be open to inspiration and different ideas.

While you may feel that your wedding day vision is set, you may find that your tastes evolve the further you get into the wedding planning process, or see something that just blows you away.

  • Take your time, don’t rush.

Our wedding fair is the perfect place to get conversations going, find the information you need and connect with the suppliers that will make your wedding day extra special. So take your time and enjoy, remember that the suppliers are here just to meet and to talk to you.

  • Take a moment.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Sometimes taking a break is a good idea, go for a walk round the beautiful grounds of Hemswell Court, and come back after you have had chance to relax and think about what you want to find out.

  • Don’t feel pressured, but don’t miss out.

If a supplier you adore has your date available ask if they will hold the date for 48 hours so you have time to talk it over and think things through, especially if a special someone is not at the wedding fair.

  • Take information and contact details from suppliers you like the look of so you can contact them after the day – but don’t forget to tell them where you saw them.

All the suppliers’ details will also be available on the Hemswell Court website after the event

We hope you will find our wedding fair to be a great experience for all, whether you are a newly engaged bride or groom to be that’s just keen to get started with planning, or a couple that is well underway with planning their big day.

Come and try the canapés and have a glass of sparkling wine, because it’s so important that you enjoy the planning process as well as your big day, don’t get stressed.

The most important thing to remember is that you are marrying the one you love.
