Hiya New Brides Mum,Hope you all had a wonderful day at Parklands. Just wanted to get a bit of feedback from someone who's got married there. Were you all happy with the venue, were the staff attentive, was the food good. Anything you would have changed? Also, was the cat wandering around?!
Hi New Brides Mum,Thanks a mil for supplying that info, it will certainly be very useful. We're hoping to have about 80 people at our wedding in October but have decided to have them there for the whole day and evening. We're getting married at 2pm and having a sit down do at 5 followed by a disco. We're planning to go back in July to sort out the menu so will definitely make sure we have contact with the chef! We're hoping to have the ceremony in the bar area so that should alleviate the probs of resetting the main room, I assuming they'll leave the tables where they are during the disco as there shouldn't be any need to move them, plus we're having large candles on the tables (Parklands are OK with this) and would like them left on the tables and on during the evening. I do find having to vacate the rooms so early a bit of a nuisance but I suppose if we leave the rooms at 9 to make our way down for breakfast it shouldn't be too bad, I won't be happy if we have to be downstairs for 7am. At your suggestion I think we will put together a very comprehensive list of everything we expect to happen and go through this with them and if there are any problems, perhaps we can iron them out beforehand. Very helpful info about the photographer. Our lady has been there before so she should be aware but I will point this out to her anyway, thanks a mil. Shame about the cat, thought I could decorate it for our wedding!! Thing is we all know its a very stressful event to arrange and because you're involved each and every day, you tend to see all problems, albeit big or small but I suppose at the end of the day, like you say, guests probably never notice any problems anyway and they're all there to celebrate the joining of two people who love each other and to spend the day with people they love and enjoy.Again, thanks a mil for your advice.
