Wedding Tips For Newly Engaged Couples

Wedding Tips from Suzie

There are few better times in a person’s life than when the big question has been popped and the answer was an emphatic YES! If you are one of these lucky people, we have all the best TIPS for you from Suzie Molloy – Wedding and Events Manager from one of Ireland’s Leading Wedding Venue’s Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Resort. Having just been awarded The TITLE of Munster’s Leading Venue, Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Resort is a must see on your to do list for 2017 as a spectacular potential wedding location.

You may not agree on everything, but just like a marriage there has to be compromise.

So you have the ring, you have of course changed your Facebook Status, the party may or may not have taken place yet, you are in transition from boyfriend and girlfriend to fiancé and in the midst of telling everyone your engagement story. Trust us, this is allowed and make sure you enjoy every minute of it.

I am sure the questions have started already, from friends and family – where, when? So what’s next and where do you begin?

1 Time to start planning, sooner rather than later.

January is a fantastic time to start your planning as there are lots of National wedding shows taking place so if you go along you will be able to draw up a short list of venues to visit.

Planning a wedding is as stressful or enjoyable as you make it, so please remember why you are doing this and once you start your to do list and begin to work your way through it together it will be an enjoyable experience that you will treasure for many years to come.

I may be biased, but having got married here in Faithlegg myself, I know how special a setting it is

The first decisions you need to make are your Ceremony, Venue, Band and Photographer – by booking these early you will have your choice of dates and the pick of the professionals you want to work with.

2 It takes two to tango and also to say I DO.

Take a moment to remember this is a partnership you’re entering into and this is not just your dream day so before you start pinning lots to your Pinterest wedding board, make sure you are both on the same page. It is vital for you to set aside some quite time with your fiancé so you can have a realistic conversation about what you both want for your wedding day. You may not agree on everything, but just like a marriage there has to be compromise. Once you have had this conversation it should be plain sailing from here on in and there won’t be any surprises 8 months into the planning such as wanting an ACDC tribute band!

3 Book a Venue and Set Your Date.

Your reception venue will become the backdrop for your wedding day and can influence everything from budget and guest list to the setting for the treasured photographs you will still be looking back over in 40 years’ time.

Exciting times ahead and remember stay on the same page and together you can do this.

We are lucky at Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Resort that we have the ultimate in fairytale backdrops from the country manor house to the roaming greenery and the stunning fireplaces. I may be biased, but having got married here in Faithlegg myself, I know how special a setting it is and hopefully if you come visit us you too will fall in love.

Of course once you pick your venue, you have also set your wedding date, so that’s two major things off the list and now you can move on to the next items on your to do list like your band, photographer, wedding dress etc.

Exciting times ahead and remember stay on the same page and together you can do this.
