Wedding prep step-by-step guide:

You may be wondering where to even start with planning. Luckily for you, these top tips will help you stay organised so you can enjoy your big day.

1. Daydream

First things first, brainstorm. Think about that dream wedding you’ve always wanted and take all those ideas and jot them down.

This way you can get a feel for what you envision your wedding day to be which will help you start the planning process.

2. Perfection begins with planning.

The key to planning a wedding is planning ahead. So, the earlier you begin the prep for your wedding, the better. There is a lot involved in planning an event as special as this, so it’s important you’re as organised as possible.

You can start by creating a checklist or mood board of everything that needs to be done before the big day. You can even take it up a notch and organise items by deadlines and payment dates.

3. Set a budget

One thing to consider is the expense of a wedding. So, before you begin to make bookings, take some time to set a budget for your day and stick to it.

Once you’ve settled on your budget, you can go ahead and start to plan all the fun stuff and add those extra details that’ll make your day even more special. Plus, this’ll ease some of the financial stress you may feel.

4. Identify your style

Whether you’re after a specific theme, style, or colour scheme, take the time to identify your style and find your perfect wedding aesthetic.

A good idea is to research weddings and take inspiration from different elements and find a way to incorporate them into your own wedding. Having a style will help make your wedding seem more cohesive and well thought out.

Our Rhondda suite can be tailored to specification, allowing you the freedom and creativity to take your vows in a charming space that truly becomes your own.

5. Plan according to the season

Whether you’re celebrating your day in the height of summer, or throwing a grand winter wedding, it’s always good to plan according to the season. Any time of year can be as enchanting as you like.

Depending on the time of year, you may have to consider the location and time of your wedding. Heritage Park Hotel has a choice of indoor ceremony rooms or outdoor options to suit your preference.

6. Prioritise personal details

This day is all about you and your partner, so make it show. Don’t be shy to include some heartfelt touches that represent you as a couple.

From the wedding favours to the party playlist, allow your personalities to shine through.

7. Food, glorious food.

One of the most important elements of your day is the food. Heritage Park Hotel offers bespoke catering packages fit for your perfect day.

From a three-course traditional wedding breakfast through to finger buffets and varied catering options including barbeques, fish and chips and so much more, there’s something for every wedding.

You can even sample our delicious wedding offerings through an exclusive tasting session ahead of your big day.

8. Accommodation

Once you and your guests are partied out, it’s good sense to have somewhere to retire after the fun of the day.

9. Remember what’s important

Yes, planning a wedding can be overwhelming but just remember what this day is really about.

This a good time to start thinking about your wedding vows if you wish to write them, so you can share just how much you love your partner.

10. Enjoy your day!

The stress of planning your day will pay off and you’ll celebrate the wedding day of your dreams in no time.
