Top Wedding Tips

When writing your guest list, think about the table plan simultaneously. It will not only help you keep control of numbers, but will help ensure your guests have enjoyable time.

Allow lull time. Many couples forget to make time for each other on the big day. At the museum any lull time can be used to explore our exhibits, so you can feel assured your guests won’t be bored.

Set days/times to do wedding planning. It will help to manage stress levels and if you make it into a planned activity, you will undoubtedly find the scope to make sure you keep it fun too!
