Select the venue with ample parking and is easily accessible to your guests. Remember to plan ahead as most of the venues in town are booked a year ahead. During the wedding Enjoy the occasion and leave the rest to your family and friends to manage. Don’t forget to thank everyone who played a role in your wedding, be it a small or a big role, give them a warm hug.
Wishing you all the best in your new life endeavours with your loved one and remember to be calm always. It is your big day so savour every moment.
