Planning a wedding on a budget is what most people now are doing as free cash dries up and bills increase above pay rises.
Wedding on a budget
When you book your function room, look out for hidden extras. Be mindful too that if you book their own resident DJ they may be making more than a drink for passing your business on. One example recently I found out about was a top wedding venue in Orsett. They charge the bride and groom £400 for a DJ, however the DJ only gets paid £250. Therefore if you also get some quotes for independant DJ’s you have a better idea of what a fair price is.
Once you’ve booked your wedding services and venue, ring round again and see if they are able to make a further small discount. Collectively you could make a further big saving. Have a look at my website www.geoffgrove.com for a list of wedding venues right across Essex, complete with phone numbers. Good luck, and please call me if you would like any help on any aspect of your wedding planning.

This unlucky Bride and Groom were having their wedding photos taken on a pontoon when it unexpectedly collapsed, so the whole wedding party falls in water! Fortunately no one was hurt.
Video- Wedding Party Falls in Water
The incident, caught on film, shows an entire wedding party line up for photos on a nearby dock, only to plunge straight through the platform. Newlyweds Eric and Maegan Walber were among the 12-strong group on the platform waiting for the pictures to be taken, but just moments after they were swimming back to shore at the Bay Pointe Inn, Shelbyville, Michigan.
“We were out there for probably 30 seconds, standing on the dock, and it started to lean and tilt,” said groom Eric Walber. “We went right under. Everyone was laughing, it was one of those things that it just happens and you roll with it.”
His bride Maegan added: “I came up laughing. It makes for a good story, we’ll be telling our grandkids.”
Waterway to make a splash as newlyweds!

There are two Wedding Fayres happening in Chelmsford area over the next few weeks. Greenwoods Hotel Wedding Fayre takes place on June 24th at their luxurious venue, set in their amazing grounds. Have a look around and see the various packages and wedding services offered.
I’ve often been the DJ at wedding receptions held here. In the summer months you and your guests have access to the fabulous grounds, what a setting! I remember at one wedding I preformed at here the bride and groom had arranged Chinese Lanterns to be lit half way through the evening. All the guests made their way outside and lit around 30 paper lanterns. What a lovely site as they rose into the sky, and another photo opportunity..
