A stunning wedding venue in Essex

How to get the most out of a wedding venue open day

Posted: Wednesday November 16, 2016

Following many successful wedding open days here at Braxted Park, we are very excited about our first ever open evening on Thursday 24th November where we will showcase our stunning venue, brightly lit up as a magical winter wonderland.

Wedding open days (or evenings) present the perfect opportunity for couples to experience first-hand how a wedding venue could look for their big day. Here’s why you should consider attending a venue open event, and what to expect from it.

Why attend a wedding venue open day?

Whether you have already fallen in love with the wedding venue of your dreams, or you are still searching, attending an open day allows you to explore the venue filled with other people and decorated with wedding decor. It is the closest thing to imagining a real wedding. Think of it like seeing a wedding dress on the rail becoming completely transformed when you actually try it on.

Even if you have already booked your venue, attending its hosted open day is another opportunity to gain inspiration for the finishing touches, so grab a notepad and make a few notes.

Wedding open evenings are particularly useful for these reasons as you are able to truly imagine how your wedding reception might look and feel after the sun has set and night draws in. At Braxted Park, for example, we have beautiful bespoke mood lighting, which guides you around our grounds, and sets a wonderfully majestic atmosphere.

What to expect at a wedding venue open day

Attending a wedding venue open day or open evening is your chance to ask any questions that you may have about the venue and your wedding plans. The events are generally relaxed and informal, allowing you to soak up the atmosphere and gain a glimpse into the endless possibilities. This allows you to plan out how your wedding day will come together.

A good open day tip is to make notes of any potential photograph locations that you spot along the way so that you can discuss these with your photographer. This is particularly useful at open evenings, as specialist lighting allows for the most creative shots.

At Braxted Park open events, we always have our dedicated team of wedding coordinators available to show you around the venue and grounds. They will be able to offer advice and help for your big day as well as welcome any questions that you would like to ask.

We also invite many of our preferred suppliers to attend our open days and events, which is a great way for couples to meet them and see the products and services they offer, as well as discovering the ways that their merchandise can be tailored to suit your individual wedding theme.
