Even choosing an utterly dreamy wedding venue in Hertfordshire such as Manor of Groves isn’t an absolute guarantee that there won’t be any eleventh-hour issues on your special day – although of course, our skilled and seasoned wedding co-ordinators can go a long way to ensuring this doesn’t happen.

Nonetheless, if you do encounter any last-minute problems or there are any that you are especially concerned about happening, some of the below tips may help.

You’re at risk of going over-budget

This is one of the most frequently reported wedding problems, so there’s no shame in it happening to you and your beloved. However, the importance of setting a strict and realistic wedding budget from an early stage cannot be emphasised enough.

If it’s still months until your wedding and money is becoming a concern, take another look at what you’re spending on such major elements as the venue, menu and floral arrangements, as there may be less expensive options out there. Or if you’ve already signed contracts and committed to these things, there’s still scope to save if you go without such extras as welcome bags or favours.

As for if you haven’t even reached the point of deciding on a venue yet, don’t forget that Manor of Groves frequently offers a range of tempting special offers as a wedding venue in Hertfordshire.

The weather doesn’t play ball

The weather might seem to be the ultimate factor that you just can’t plan for when organising a wedding, but there’s nothing wrong with having sensible alternative plans, just in case of a downpour or other adverse conditions.

This is a subject that you might discuss with our own wedding co-ordinators and the experienced manager we will assign to you to manage your wedding on the day itself. Thankfully, our own wedding venue in Hertfordshire offers spectacular internal and external spaces alike, as you might expect from a prestigious historic residence.

The lighting at your venue is a little disappointing

Whether you’re concerned about the lighting at your venue being too bright just when you need it to be darker, or too dark when you were hoping for a good amount of natural light, this is a problem that can be largely avoided simply by visiting the venue in person in advance of committing to it, during the same season in which you plan to marry.

When you do so, you’ll be able to get a sense of the particular venue’s relationship with light, and begin discussing with the venue staff what lighting arrangements will be put in place on the day, as well as the timing of certain events to make the most of the light.

Are there any other worries that you have about how your special day will come together? If so, our team is always happy to discuss solutions with you in advance, while also possessing the expertise and experience to negotiate any last-minute problem when you choose us as your wedding venue in Hertfordshire.
