the stress and pain of finding wedding venues, opinions and help please!
Hello, my partner and i have been engaged for around 3 months now and as i am sure everybody is, i was so excited! So, i decided to have a look into wedding venues, what type of venue we would want and locations. The thing is, it was so frustrating! There are so many websites advertising venues as well as the venues websites themselves.
With most websites/apps wanting your whole life story (email address, names, wedding dates, locations, numbers, budgets) to only give you broad information. If you then want venue brochures 9 times out of 10 it will direct you to the actual website where it requests information AGAIN. After looking at the brochures, emailing the venue a number of times for additional information to find out your ideal date isn't available, or price isn't as expected, or you have to book a viewing for more info. It is FRUSTRATING and time consuming!
Heres the thing, i wanted to know if other people were having this issue? and wanted to know what other issues people are struggling with when trying to plan their wedding. As a though had occurred to me, a way brides and grooms to be could access a platform in which it has important information already accessible and an easier way to contact wedding venues and other suppliers? For example, an app in which wedding venues have normal info regarding their venue along with a live calendar linked with their calendar so brides/grooms know what dates have already been booked there? a chat/messenger service on the app to contact said venue, sounds a lot easier than sending emails and waiting for replies. the app could also be extended to suppliers, such as photographers, musicians, etc.
Currently just an idea and wanted to know what other people think, what their struggles currently are. any feedback would be amazing! or if anyone knows of a website/app that already does this would be great.
Good luck planning everybody!
