Essex Wedding Venues: Your Wedding Venue Planning Guide for Essex

Essex in southeast England is one of the most popular spots in the entire country for civil marriages because there are so many wedding venues in Essex that are "approved premises." That means you can host your ceremony and your reception at one venue, which is not only convenient, but also budget-friendly. In Essex, you'll find shopping and spas, as well as plenty of historical sites and Britain's oldest recorded town, Colchester. The natural beauty of Essex draws as many visitors as the urban centers, which regularly play host to celebrities. The wedding venues in Essex are similarly diverse, though many people are married here because they want to celebrate their vows surrounded by the natural beauty of the countryside or in the midst of living history. Want even more options? Then extend your search to include London wedding venues and you're sure to find a venue you adore.

A Wealth of Eclectic Options in the Heart of Essex

The approved premises in Essex include many historic houses, a windmill that's hundreds of years old, an authentic old style cinema, England's tallest Tudor Gatehouse, and even a secret bar. There are also grand castles, including one Norman keep that's nearly a thousand years old. Historic barns abound, and these are outfitted luxuriously for weddings. Of course, couples also choose Essex wedding venues like golf and country clubs, inns, and halls, and even restaurants for those planning smaller weddings. There's something in Essex for every type of bride or groom.

Now you must ask yourself how much you can comfortably spend on your venue. Using a wedding budget planner from the start will make answering that question much easier.

These are the Questions That Will Make Your Choice Easier

Choosing between Essex wedding venues isn't always easy, but if you take a step-by-step approach you'll find the perfect venue in no time. The first thing you'll need to do is research venues to find the ones you like best. Next, reach out to your favourite ones to ask whether they're available on your wedding date. If they're already booked, are you willing to be flexible? Or is your wedding date non-negotiable? From there, you'll need to schedule walk-throughs of each of the available wedding venues.

Finding time for all of these site visits can be tough, but touring wedding venues in Essex will be an important item on your wedding to-do list. Your venue may determine which vendors you can use, how large your wedding guest list can be, and what the look and feel of your celebration will be. Seeing venues in person will also help you make your final decision because these visits are an opportunity to ask lots of questions.

Touring wedding venues can be overwhelming, but it's less stressful when you come prepared with a list of questions for the venue manager or coordinator. You should always ask about packages, prices, when deposits will be due, if you can choose your own vendors, if on-site catering is available, and the venue's cancellation policy. You can also ask about décor options, what's not included in each package, and, in the case of outdoor venues, how they handle bad weather.

From there, ask any other questions you have. The more information you get, the simpler it will be to choose a venue you love in Essex.

Now that you've chosen the perfect Essex wedding venue, it's time to tackle all those other to-dos. For help with everything else, whether you're looking for local wedding providers or setting up your wedding website, WeddingWire has the tools you need.
