There are many milestones to be reached in your life, but never one more important than the day you got married. It is a day that none of us will forget in a hurry and the reason why it sticks in our memory so much is the amount of effort that goes into planning the whole day. As well as taking into consideration your feelings, you also need to think about your nearest and dearest ones at your wedding as well.
There is so much to plan and do, and it is your job to make sure that your guests are incredibly comfortable with all of the surroundings, that the drinks are readily supplied, the food is second to none, and that there is nonstop entertainment provided throughout the day.
Since wonderful memories have to be made, everything should be planned down to the tiniest details. The wedding location is naturally at the center of it all. Everything about the wedding, including the look, feel, tone, and every other detail depends on the location.
We asked the professionals at Marry Me Cottage a few questions. Keep reading; there is so much to learn!
1. What common mistakes do you see couples making?
OVER planning and over-thinking details and OVER SPENDING. Of course, we host Micro Weddings and we see couples going overboard with all the details such as too much decor, oversized cake for their event, too much food, etc.).
2. What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Go small! – Less is more! Stop spending money on details that get overlooked. Spend the wedding budget on the venue you want, the food and drinks (which everyone remembers) and the entertainment!
3. What don’t couples know about your business that they need to know?
Marry Me COTTAGE is like any other wedding venue, our weddings are just smaller scale. Couples will need to hire all their vendors such as catering, bar service, and DJ services.
4. What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
What the average cost of a complete Micro Wedding is? Answer: On average, $6,000.00 to $9,000.00 (including: venue, attire, decor, food, drinks, and entertainment)
5. What your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Focus on 4 things: 1. The TWO of them! 2. The venue! 3. The food and drink! 4. The entertainment!
6. What’s the most unusual wedding you ever did?
Marry Me COTTAGE had a couple who had a “FAKE” Micro Wedding, just to quiet family members who kept asking when they were getting married…The couple who did not want to get married, but want to share their life together, had us perform a ceremony (a ceremony with no legal value) and reception just to convince their families that they got married.
7. What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
A sweet Intimate Wedding Ceremony on January 16, 2021. The happy couple, who live in NEW YORK, found Marry Me through an online search. They chose to Marry Me COTTAGE as we host Micro Weddings and they found us to be the perfect fit for their wedding day. NEW YORK TIMES sent a photographer and writer to the venue on the day of the wedding to create an article on PANDEMIC WEDDINGS and MICRO WEDDINGS. Marry Me was featured in NEW YORK TIMES as a top leading Micro Wedding venue in the United States.
