    Hi all ,

    Me and my fiancé have been to see all the wow venues of the area and even though some tick all boxes it's like something isn't quite right . I imagine like when finding a wedding dress when you find that special venue you get that wow this is it feeling but it seems to be missing .

    So my question is when you found your place for your wedding reception how did you know it's the one ? :wub:

    Hello!

    I know what you mean I am currently looking for venues as I am getting married in 2015, it seems so long away but want something different and unique so getting a rough idea of prices and different venues! I visited the traditional church but I didnt feel that sparkle so Churches are now a no go!

    I would advise keep looking, this is going to be your day, if you're not happy with it change it!

    Good Luck

    Lauren!xxx

    We visited a few venues, and tried to look at quite a wide variety from grand country houses and hotels to barns. I thought we would have liked the country houses, but it just felt grand and impersonal... in the end we loved the feel of a barn which was right next to a lake - it was just more 'us'!

    If you are not having much luck with your search then maybe try looking at a wider variety of types - it might surprise you!

    HI welsh Kitty...

    I signed up for Martha stewart weddings and she has a fab venue checklist. We're not at that stage yet because we're trying to sell our house so once that's done we'll book the one we want. We've got a shortlist so it just comes down to availability. I will say they are all a bit different, but each will work perfectly for our day
