With so much variety out there, finding your perfect wedding venue can take weeks, months or even years to do! The good news is that there are plenty of resources to help make the job a little less taxing, and a little more enjoyable!
The best way to start your hunt for a wedding venue in Liverpool is to get an idea of the following:
From Anfield stadium to the Hard Day’s Night hotel – there are a huge range of wedding venues in Liverpool, which is great for attracting a plethora of people, but not so great when it comes to helping you narrow down your search!
If you’re unsure where you can get married in Liverpool, we advise taking a look at Liverpool.gov where you will find a list of approved wedding venues as well as a range of other important info.
Much like any city, wedding venues in Liverpool can vary drastically in price depending on what you’re looking for. Liverpool itself is home to dozens of beautiful wedding venues perfect for all kinds of budgets, so whether you’re working on a shoestring or have your life’s savings ready to spend – the city has something to offer.
If you’re interested in tying the knot at one of our Signature wedding venues in Liverpool, then why not get in touch with us to discuss your budget today?
If you’re working to a tight budget, it may feel like finding your dream wedding venue in Liverpool is beyond reach. Whilst we understand that some venues are considered on the higher end of the price scale, there are also plenty of affordable, unique and special wedding venues in the city that can offer a memorable day for you and your loved ones.
If you have your heart set on a wedding venue in Liverpool, but need to keep to a particular budget – why not get in touch with us to speak with one of our wedding specialists who can help you create an amazing day that won’t break the bank.
Ultimately this depends on you and your partner and how prepared you’re already feeling for the big day. As a general rule of thumb, it is advised that couples preparing to say “I do” book a venue at least 12 months before the big day. However, if you’re right at the beginning of preparations and have very little saved up, you’re more likely to benefit from a window of at least 2 years to get your affairs in order.
On the other end of the scale, you may have the finances aside and plans in place to be able to get married in the same year – but to avoid disappointment or missing out on your dream venue, giving as much notice as possible is advised.
Although a crucial part of any wedding prep, giving notice of your up coming marriage doesn’t need to be complicated. You can easily access full information on when and how to give notice of marriage or civil partnership in Liverpool on the gov website.
Perhaps one of the most time-consuming aspects of planning any wedding is figuring out what you need for your venue, but this demand can change from one venue to the next depending on a range of things, including how hands-on they are as a venue. For example, some wedding venues include a wedding planner as well as offering other support from decoration and flexibility when it comes to where you will say “I do”.
If you are opting for a wedding venue in Liverpool that benefits from a range of facilities you may not need to travel from the ceremony to the reception, removing the need for transport and reducing the amount you need to spend and organise.
It’s always worth having a discussion with your chosen wedding venue about how they can help and what options are available as this will directly impact how much you need to organise ahead of time.
This is entirely up to you and your partner, and no two couples will say the same! When it comes to the hunt for your dream wedding venue, not just any space will do and so for some it could take weeks or months of countless venue visits before finding the perfect one. On the other hand, we have had couples who have fallen head over heels for one of our venues, before looking anywhere else.
Our advice is to go to every venue with an open mind, ask questions and get as much information as possible so that you can leave feeling informed and reassured that your wishes have been listened to.
The hen party is booked, the venue agreed, the drinks are chilling in the fridge, the last thing to think about is how you’re going to entertain a large group of women who’ve been promised a good time. You need some fun hen party games!
At Signature Living Weddings, we know that every bride-to-be is looking forward to an unforgettable hen do. That’s why we offer the very best hen do advice for everyone that books a wedding with us. From bingo to drinking games, memory quizzes to dares these hen party games are sure to keep everyone entertained during your hen do.
This one might take a bit of organising but it’s definitely worth it. Get your hens to write down what gifts they think the bride-to-be will receive, and as she opens them, mark off any of the presents written down. Once someone correctly guesses five in a row, they shout out Bingo! The winning prize is up to you!
Before the party begins, ask all the guests to write down an embarrassing, funny or unusual experience they have had with the bride-to-be. Put them all into a bowl and have guests take it in turns to draw one and read it aloud! Everyone can then guess who wrote the story. This is one of the best hen party games and is sure to get all your guests talking and laughing.
Another fun way to bring up old embarrassing stories of the bride. Ask the hen party crew to write down an embarrassing story about the bride-to-be, but leave some of the key words blank. For example ‘Sophie once accidentally exposed her blank at a party in high school, which earned her the nickname blank.’ Each person then has to guess the blank words, enjoy! This is one of the most popular hen party games on the list.
Fun, easy and as naughty as you like! Simply choose a list of words that can’t be spoken throughout the night, but make sure they’re relatively hard to avoid! You and the hens can decide how severe the penalty is for breaking the rules, from doing a shot, to taking part in a dare, the choice is yours!
One of the most popular hen party games, prosecco pong is perfect for getting the real party started. If you’ve been living in a cave for the past couple of years, this game is a ‘classy’ take on beer pong. It requires your hens to be split up into two teams, with a table set up in the middle and 6 prosecco-filled glasses either end, in a triangular shape. The teams then take it in turns to throw or bounce ping pong balls into the opponents’ glasses. If they succeed, the opponent must drink the glass of fizz in one!
I think we all know the rules to this game. Basically, everyone takes turns admitting to something that they’ve never done. If anyone in the group has done it, they have to drink. This is one of the hen party games where the quiet ones will surprise you!
Next up in our list of the very best hen party games is balloon based. To play, simply fill a number of balloons with funny dares and throughout the night nominate someone to pop a balloon and complete the challenge. This game also provides the perfect excuse to decorate your venue with pretty balloons!
Start by splitting the hens into two teams and ask them to pass the balloon from one person to the next using their knees or noses. After a few proseccos, this game is much harder than it sounds. You could even combine the balloon dares with this game and have double the fun if someone pops one.
Test your guests’ knowledge of some cheeky cocktail names with this fun quiz. Write down a list of funny or suggestive cocktail names, leaving certain words blank. For example, slippery… sex on the … and many more. If you don’t know the answers the game becomes even funnier, as the cocktail names become even more hilarious. If you’re starting your night in a bar, then order a few of each of these cocktails or ask the barman to design a special drink based off your wrong guesses.
You may not have enough time to take part in a wedding movie marathon, but you can definitely act some of them out! Re-enact everything from Bridesmaids, to Runaway Bride and see if the other team can guess the film.
Print a large picture of a ‘hunk’ – could be the groom, could be a celeb crush of the bride’s (we recommend Leonardo DiCaprio, but that’s just us). Much like pin the tail on the donkey, you can then take it in turns to pin some trunks on him, whilst blindfolded.
This one calls for some creativity. Split the hens up into teams and equip them with plasticine or play-doh. Each team is then given a body part to make, but they’re not allowed to see what the other teams are doing. At the end it’s the bride’s job to put it together and make a man. It’s our favourite kind of team-work!
