How to Host a Wedding at Home

Hosting a wedding at home seems like a challenge that isn't for the faint-hearted. Here at We Buy Any House we have compiled our top tips on how to host a wedding at home.

Have an Order of the Day:

The first thing you need to sort out is the order of how your day is going to go. Nothing has to be finalised, however, it is a good idea to see how your day will go. By having a rough idea of how your day is going to run, you can decide what rooms in your house you are going to use for various parts of the day. For example, you might do the vow exchange in one room, and then host the party side of your wedding outdoors under a canopy. 

Sort Out Your Guest List:

Unless your house is a mega-mansion, then you’re probably going to have to do crowd control on your wedding day. You may need to whittle down the guest list and start being realistic about the number of people who are in your home. You have to think that all guests will require seats, a meal and somewhere to park if they are driving.

Speak to Your Neighbours:

Before you host any event at your party, let alone a wedding, you need to speak to your neighbours as a courtesy. This way, you can let your neighbours know what is going to go on, how long you expect the event to go on etc. It allows you to let them prepare for if there is going to be any noise at your party, then they can plan ahead as to whether they want to stay there (if they aren't invited that is!).

Prepare for the Weather:

If you are planning on having an outdoor wedding in the UK- then you better prepare for the weather! All UK residents know that the weather over here can change in an instant, so it's important that you are prepared for any type of weather. A great way to combat the inevitable rain is to hire a tent which will allow you to have the party outside and enjoy the scenery without getting drenched in the UK rain.

Think About the Caterers:

If you’re going to host a wedding at home, you’re going to have to provide some type of catering. Not only are weddings a typically long day, but they also usually have a meal in between the ceremony and after the party- in which people do speeches and have a chance to wind down before the party. Therefore, if you’re going to have a meal at home, you will need to think about the type of cuisine you want to offer your guests,
