Planning a wedding can be nerve-wracking, but it can also be really exciting! We understand that couples everywhere will not only be anxious to tie the knot, but also to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch – barring the right one at the end of the ceremony! Many people love heading to wedding fayre events because it gives them a chance to take a look at what venues can do to make your perfect day that little bit more memorable. It’s a good way for you to get scope of what you can choose for your big day.
The OEC is a licensed wedding venue, which means that as well as being well-known for big parties and corporate events alike, we have helped more than a few happy couples tie the knot! As well as providing a full weddings service and venue, we regularly host fayres and open stalls to help get you set up. If you’ve never been to a wedding exhibition or fayre before, there’s no time like the present.
Our next upcoming wedding fayre will be taking place on Tuesday, January 21st, 2020. Therefore, there is only a little bit of time left before you can head on down to the OEC to take advantage of a plethora of stalls and services. Maybe you’re just looking for ideas!
Here are five great reasons why you should consider heading to our next wedding fayre in January.
Check Out the Full Venue
Before you decide where you’d like to host your wedding, you should of course take a look at how everything appears when it’s fully dressed and presented! Our wedding fayres will show you how our full halls and rooms will look with complete dressing and designs offered as standard. Therefore, you don’t have to imagine how things will look – as you will get to see everything in its full glory!
It’s a really good way to get a measure of a venue. The OEC is a fabulous location for a wedding not only thanks to our huge amount of space, but also thanks to our talented weddings and events crew.
Ask All the Questions You Need
As you’re planning a wedding, you will likely have plenty of questions you need to ask! Therefore, we encourage you to come armed with all the queries you have. Our events team will be on hand to help you navigate the sometimes-confusing world of wedding planning. If you already have a few queries and question marks plotted out in your wedding planner, then we will only be too happy to help fill in a few blanks.
You could ask our team about everything from what you can expect on the big day, to how much you can expect to pay for packages. You can also enquire about entertainment services, such as our fabulous sound stage. After all, a great wedding is nothing without a fantastic party afterwards!
Budget, Budget, Budget!
Here at the OEC, we understand that one of the main things you will likely want to focus on is your budget. We want to make your wedding as affordable as possible – in which case, our team will be here to give you plain, straight, honest answers. If you want to set up a full package with us, we will make recommendations to you. If you’d prefer to enquire about only one or two little services we can help with, that’s fine too.
Ultimately, the aim of our wedding fayre service is to help give you a bit more clarity on where you may be heading with your nuptials. One of the main things you’re going to need to account for, of course, is money. We are transparent and upfront on pricing, and you won’t get anything but straight answers from our team on the day.
Explore Our Wider Rooms and Suites
While you may wish to look at our wedding dressing and how our main hall looks when it is all lit up and finely decorated, you will likely want to explore what else we have on offer. And why not? At our wedding fayre, you will have the chance to look around our various wedding suites and rooms, meaning that you can easily plan for space and activities as you wish. Don’t worry, as there will always be a member of our team or two on hand to help guide you through the venue.
It’s here where things will really start to take shape. Want to host a small gathering? Take a look at our smaller spaces. Want to set up a wedding space for hundreds of guests? No problem. Make sure to take in all our gorgeous, grandiose halls and spaces.
Register Your Interest
Another great reason to attend our wedding fayre is, of course, to make sure you register your interest with us. If you really like the look of what the OEC has to offer in terms of a fully-fledged wedding venue, we will be happy to get the ball rolling with you. Set up a simple plan of action with our team and we will make sure to cater to all your bases. You can register your contact details with us if you don’t want to make any firm decisions on the day. That’s fine with us!
We will then get in touch with you to arrange a more intimate, informal consultation. We’ll then run through all the final details with you – and there is no obligation for you to sign on the dotted line there and then!
Come Along in January
From 5pm to 7pm on January 21st, we will show you just how fabulous the OEC can look for weddings of all shapes and sizes. There’s no booking necessary, meaning you can feel free to simply attend on the day! Let’s help to make your big, perfect day a reality.
