Tying The Knot in 12 weeks - Part 3


29th October 2022

The final month!

Whether planning a wedding in 12 weeks or you have a little longer to plan your big day the final weeks and days can be jam-packed. Here to make sense of those last remaining moments before you are married, our wonderful wedding co-ordinator Una, has compiled some helpful information.

You booked a final meeting with your venue, now let's get all the details in order:

Week 9

  • Meet with a member of the Wedding & Events Team at the Manor House Country Hotel to discuss the finer details (i.e. times. menu, suppliers etc)
  • Hen / Stag Do (at least a month in advance is best)
  • Compile a list of any particular groups / photos that you want for your photographer
  • Finalise 1st Dance / songlist with the Band / DJ

The logistics are often some of the most difficult to organise. Between seating plans, and all the headaches that come with logistics often it can't be helped. Make your plans and stick with them!

Week 10

  • Start working on your Table Plan
  • Arrange final meetings with suppliers - Florist, Decor, Cake, Photography etc
  • Confirm Collection / Drop of Points / Times with your Transport
  • Start to wear in Wedding Shoes

The little things can often slip through the cracks. Try your best to get your house in order the week before the wedding. It saves the hassle of doing so in the days before.

Week 11

  • Write any Thank You cards for Bridal Party etc - be easier having these done in advance less to worry about the day before the wedding
  • Collect dresses / suits / wedding rings etc - keep all the Bridal Party attire together so nothing gets misplaced
  • Pay any outstanding suppliers or if they want paid on the day get the envelopes ready
  • Send table plan to stationary supplier for printing & hotel for setup requirements
  • Ceremony Rehearsal
  • Write speeches

Between appointments and visitors your days before the wedding are going to be busy. That's why you have come to the Manor House as your venue. It is our job to get your wedding venue in order, in conjunction with the other suppliers. We are the ones who should be preparing your big day, you should be enjoying the last remaining moments in unmarried life.

Week 12

  • The week has arrived - see all the planning & hard work come together
  • Pack bag with "Wedding Day Essentials" including tissues, wetwipes, hairclips etc

We will say it again! Your last remaining days before the wedding are ones to be treasured. We are there to ensure that every detail of the venue is planned and executed to your dreams, so that you play host/hostess without the stress.

Week 12
