One of the interesting things about offering a chair covers service is visiting all the various wedding venues in the local region. All the local venues offer you something different whether it be in their location, architectural style, package offer, grandeur or simplicity, from the latest modern refurbishment to a stately home or a historic castle. Choosing your venue is one of the most challenging decision you will have to make on your wedding journey.

So here’s a little extra thing you may want to consider. What is the access like to your venue? To the room you have chosen to hold your ceremony in – and if holding your civil ceremony and wedding breakfast in one location – will you be having the whole day in one room or will you be transferring between two different suites?
Bear in mind your guests as well, do any of them require wheel chair access? Does the wedding venue have a lift? Not a glamorous thing to take into consideration but a very important one….and one that your guests will appreciate you taking time over……why do I mention this? This was on my mind this weekend as I was dressing chair covers at a local 12th century Castle - with very limited access for unloading, I then had a mountain to climb to get to the ceremony room but WOW, when I arrived in the room the views were just stunning over the valley below and the adjacent hillside. What a pity Bolsover Castle didn’t have the foresight to plan a lift all those years ago in the 12th century!!! The plus side…. 75 stairs up and 75 stairs down to unload, and repeat 7 times…means my workout for the weekend was completed without a StairMaster anywhere in sight!!! But, joking aside, would like have been a good choice for elderly guests?
