You’ve got the ring, set the date, and created the ultimate wedding Pinterest board – now it’s time to start planning.
Before you get carried away with ideas of the what the ‘ideal’ wedding in cornwall should look like, there are a few important things you should consider. Ultimately, it is you and your partner’s special day and having a wedding that reflects your style and tastes is the most important thing.
With this in mind, we’ve created a list of 5 things that should be considered before, and during, planning.
What will the venue look like on your big day?
One top tip is to re-visit your wedding venue at the same time of year as your planned date. If you’ve set a date in July, going back the spot where you’ll say “I do” during the Summer months will give you a good idea of what to expect visually.
As leaves change with the seasons, so does the look and atmosphere of the venue. Viewing in the correct season can also lead to colour palette inspiration. Autumn at Launcells Barton brings out beautiful shades of deep red as the leaves turn, whilst Summer in Cornwall is full of colour and lush greenery.
What’s available in the local area?
Cornwall and Devon is filled to the brim with wonderful caterers, florists, and photographers so make the most of what they have to offer.
Keeping it close to Bude gives your day that extra authentic touch. With so many options of suppliers in the local area you won’t need to go anywhere else! We even have a list of recommended suppliers to help you pick the best of the best.
The size of your party
Your guest list may be small or big, but either way it’s important to keep numbers in mind when planning your big day.
At Launcells Barton we’re very flexible and able to facilitate weddings of all sizes and understand that the amount of guests can make a difference to particular decisions. Having a small cake and 200 RSVPs? Planning an intimate gathering of 10 people and booked a lavish symphony orchestra? Being aware of your party size when making bookings will help you make appropriate decisions.
Everyone wants to get married in a gorgeous location, but why not use the surrounding beauty to influence the look of your big day? Launcells Barton is set amongst peaceful wooded countryside and provides a magical backdrop for photos and ceremonies.
We’re also a short distance from the stunning north coast of Cornwall. The seaside town of Bude will provide ample nautical and Cornish inspiration for brides and grooms.
What do YOU want?
Amongst the glossy magazines, Pinterest boards, and family input it can be easy to lose sight of what you actually want your big day to be like. Remember, it is a day for you and your partner to celebrate your love and marriage. Let yourself have the theme and style you want, and share it with the people you love.
