4 ways to make your wedding more luxurious

4 ways to make your wedding more luxurious

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so it’s understandable if you want to splash out and make it a luxurious occasion that you and your guests will remember for the rest of your lives. Today we’re sharing some ideas for adding a bit more luxury to your big day.

1. Hire the whole venue 

An instant way to go the extra mile for your wedding is to hire the whole venue for your exclusive use. This means you’ll get the whole place to yourself to decorate as you wish (oodles of fresh flowers will help with the luxury vibe), and you and your guests can relax in a home away from home – without any strangers drifting around! Here at Southdowns Manor, all our weddings are exclusive use, so you’ll have the whole house and grounds to enjoy with your guests.

2. Arrive in dramatic style

There are lots of different ways you could make a memorable entrance at your wedding, but you can’t beat a helicopter for dramatic impact. For an arrival that your guests will tell all their friends about, be sure to keep it top secret until the moment you come in to land.

3. Go all-out on the catering

A great way to give your wedding a sense of luxury is to splash out on the food and drink. Think Veuve Clicquot Champagne at the drinks reception after your ceremony; a tasting menu-style wedding breakfast featuring truffles, caviar and other decadent treats; and a free bar all night long.

4. Treat your guests

It’s always nice to receive a gift, and putting more budget into your wedding favours is a great way to make your wedding more luxurious and make your guests feel special. From personalised iced biscuits to miniature bottles of Champagne, a luxury wedding favour is sure to go down a treat.
