If you’ve only just got engaged and have a 2020 wedding in mind, you might understandably feel a certain urgency as far as the planning of your nuptials is concerned – after all, 2020 really isn’t far away now.

However, as important as it is for you to start making decisions and taking steps towards organising your wedding, it’s also vital not to rush and make hasty choices you’ll regret later.

So, let’s start with some of the most basic things we would advise you to do right now.

Determine your budget

We can’t emphasise enough, just how crucial it is for you to have a strong sense of your wedding budget from the outset.

Bear in mind that it’s the various little extras – such as dress alterations, beauty and gift expenses – that can often push couples into the red with their wedding planning, as much as the obvious heftier costs like venue and photographer hire.

Start seeking the help of friends and family

On both the bride and groom’s sides, there will be friends and relatives eager to help to make the wedding a success. There are probably certain people coming to your mind right now who you know will want to offer their assistance – so now’s the time to start sounding them out.

It’s a really good idea to talk to your especially trusted long-time friends and relatives first. After all, the more you feel you can trust the people helping you to make your wedding a reality, the more honest you are likely to feel you can be with them when some aspect of the planning isn’t to your liking and could do with improvement.

Visit potential venues in person

If there are certain places that you have long fancied tying the knot at, now is the time to start seeing those venues ‘in the flesh’.

Our very own Shendish Manor, for instance, has long been one of the most popular wedding venues in Apsley, and if you join us for our Wedding Fayre on Sunday 20th October 2019, you’ll be able to get a sense of whether we’re the right choice for you, too.

Compare wedding package deals

Sure, you might not be in a position to commit to any venues until you have taken a closer look at them in real life, but your ultimate decision may still be influenced by the deals available for your upcoming wedding.

Again, Shendish Manor’s reputation as a Hertfordshire wedding venue is partly founded on the excellent special offers that we routinely present for those contemplating getting married here. These include our current £76-per-head Wedding Offer that gives you 20% off a wedding with us, along with exclusive use of our Manor House or Apsley Suite.

Why accept any other wedding venues in Apsley or elsewhere around Hertfordshire when you’re planning 2020 nuptials? Simply get in touch with our professional and friendly team today to learn more about how we can help to take so much of the stress and hassle out of your wedding planning.
