weddingAnyone who has experienced the task of planning and organising a wedding will know, it isn’t exactly the easiest of missions. From the guest list to the venue to the favours, there is a myriad of things to be taken care of the very moment that engagement ring glides on.

Here at Goosedale, also known as one of the leading premier wedding venues in Nottingham, we are incredibly passionate about weddings and aim to ensure we deliver an exclusive wedding day for you to truly remember.

And, with a wealth of experience under our belt, we thought we would share some of this knowledge with some top tips for organising your perfect wedding day!

So, without further ado…


First things first, you need to decide when you are thinking of tying the knot. Many factors come into this decision such as booking leave from work, affordability, and availability of your desired venue and so forth. Once you have agreed on a few provisional dates, the next step is to select your chosen venue. It is important to bear in mind the maximum capacity for guests at your chosen venue; are you looking to host a large gathering or would you much rather prefer a more intimate setting?

Tip: For maximum savings, opt for a venue which is licensed to hold civil ceremonies too, as booking this in conjunction with your wedding reception could save you some money as well as time.

Catering for Your Guests’ Needs

Next, you need to decide on the wedding menu! From the wedding breakfast and reception, through to canapes and most importantly, the champagne and cocktails for your guests, there’s a lot to consider. Once this has been decided, it’s time to choose your sit down meal and choose your wedding cake or choice of dessert.

Tip: Ensure you ask your guests for dietary preferences well in advance to be sure that any allergies, intolerances and otherwise are known with plenty of time!


It is never too soon to start shopping around for the perfect wedding dress and suit to match. Once you have chosen your dream outfit, you can then start accessorising with shoes, jewellery, bags and accessories. Don’t forget to sort out the bridesmaids and best man too while you’re at it. Speaking of which, the best man is the usually the ideal ‘go to person’ for booking the wedding transport, or at least getting some quotes in, anyway, so why not utilise the help at your disposal and get more ticked off your to-do list in the process?!

Buy your wedding rings, book the hair artist, makeup artist, nail technician etc. in plenty of time for the big day, and if you are lucky enough to be flying off on honeymoon afterwards, then start looking at holiday packages, too.

Tip: Don’t forget to book a final fitting date for your wedding outfit a week to two weeks before the big day. It is also a good idea to book trials for hair and makeup a few months in advance to avoid last-minute disasters.
