No sooner has our so-called Summer seem to have been and gone and it’s the onset of the Autumn Wedding Planning Season.
It can be a great time of year for couples who’ve yet to book all elements of the special day, to grab some great offers and discounts; many wedding venues will be looking ahead at the amount of bookings they have for next year (& the year after potentially) and if they’re down on numbers for any reason, they often offer incentives for couples to get their date booked with them – whether it’s holding the current year’s prices or throwing in some added extras, you could get yourself a really good deal before the year’s out.
Much the same goes for all wedding suppliers – the businesses & services who may be a part of your day, are winding down a little following a busy peak wedding period over the summer, but they still need to plan many months ahead and see just how many weddings are on their books. So with (dare we say it…) Halloween around the corner and Christmas soon after, everyone’s pennies have to go back in the savings pot for a while whilst the festive season takes over. Many of these suppliers will also offer incentives to book with them, so if its chair-covers thrown in for free…some extra jars of sweets on the sweetcart, or buttonholes & bouquets thrown in for free, it’s a great time to save some extra £££’s for your wedding ( to spend on the Honeymoon!)
We have lots of fabulous Wedding Fayres throughout September & October, with our finale-fayre of the year on Sunday 5th November. So pop along and see the venues (if you’re still looking for your perfect one) as well as all of the wedding experts attending, showcasing their services – providing ideas, inspirations and importantly – savings!
Happy Wedding Planning xx

Hundreds of couples came along, both newly engaged over the Christmas & New Year period or already in full-swing with their wedding preparations, on what was our first ‘foggy’ Wedding Fayre at the tower since 2014. Mind you, that didn’t hamper the day as visitors spent time looking at the wonderful array of Wedding Suppliers showcasing their businesses & services on all levels of the tower. This unique Wedding Venue also appealed to several couples who opted to book it for their Special Day, after seeing the facilities first hand and chatting to the expert Wedding & Events Team. A great day was had by all….
With the popular New Year Wedding Planning Season here, PMN Wedding Fayres are hosting fayres throughout the season at many top local venues ~ with record numbers also coming along to the vast Solent Hotel & Spa, Whiteley, Fareham on the following Sunday 15th January. An established wedding venue, there were over 50 suppliers throughout the entire hotel and although the weather was typically a dreary January Sunday, everyone was cosy inside by the log fire and browsing so many suppliers stands and displays.
