Whether you spell it ‘fayre’ or ‘fair’, all wedding fayre’s have one thing in common: they’re designed to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams. By bringing together everything you need under one roof, you can browse at your leisure and get inspiration for your big day. Menu venues will even give you a free goody bag, just for showing up, but if that isn’t enough to tempt you, check out our top five reasons to visit your local wedding fayre this year:
1.) The bubbly: Nine times out of 10, you’re getting at least one glass of bubbly at a wedding fayre (there’s also a fairly unlimited quantity of orange juice, if Champagne isn’t your thing). Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
2.) The suppliers: Planning a wedding is stressful. There’s a lot to think about – there’s the dress, the florist, the photographer, the party favours, the decorations, the centrepieces, the rings, the cake…the list is endless. Thankfully, at wedding fayres, all of these people are gathered together to help you arrange your special day.
3.) The venue: One of the most important parts of wedding planning is deciding exactly where you’re going to celebrate. How on earth do you choose? Sure, the internet is a wonderful thing and pictures might say a thousand words, but when it comes to something as important as your dream wedding, seeing really is believing. Wedding fayres often give you the chance to tour the venue, meet the team, and see up close where you’ll be spending the happiest day of your life (bridal suite included!), so you can make an informed decision about where you should book.
4.) The discounts: An inside secret that not many people know about – a lot of venues that host wedding fayres offer an exclusive discount to the couples who attend. Not bad, considering how expensive the perfect wedding can be.
5.) The goody bag: Okay, so we might have already mentioned this one, but it bears repeating. Not all gift bags are created equal, but depending where you go, you can get spa gift sets, money-off vouchers and prosecco…for free!
So get your wedding party together and say ‘I do’ to a wedding fayre near you, and enjoy planning the wedding day of your dreams!
