Your Scottish Wedding Venue Checklist for the Ultimate Scottish Wedding

So, congratulations! You’re planning the most important day of our life! Yet, a wedding can take over your life with lists, notebooks and diaries filling every waking minute of your day. From picking the perfect Scottish Wedding Venue, to saying yes to the dress, to guest lists and wedding favours… the list is endless! It may only be one day, but it can take years to prepare as this is your one chance to shine, to step into the rest of your life with the love of your life.

Wedding Venue Checklist

While organisation is the key to enjoying a stress-free day, knowing where to start can be a challenge. Since your wedding planning all starts with picking your wedding venue, the Waterside Hotel in Inverness have come to the rescue with their Scottish Wedding Venue Checklist for the Ultimate Scottish Wedding guide to help get you started:

“We believe that from the moment you wake on your wedding day, every minute should be relaxed and enjoyable. You’ve done the hard work, you’ve planned your wedding, so it’s up to us to make sure you enjoy it.

One way we do this is by ensuring we deliver incredible service to those who choose our venue for their weddings. We work to our own checklists, to make sure we consistently provide the best, stress free day for brides, grooms and their guests.

If you’re currently looking for a wedding venue, use our checklist to ensure you pick the very best.

1. Cleanliness
Cleanliness is of paramount importance. Your guests will remember dirty plates or un-serviced toilets. A venue should always be immaculate and complete dust free.

2. Service
From your initial meeting you should be able to see the type of service you can expect to receive. The staff should go that extra mile to make you comfortable while answering your questions with ease.

3. Back Up Plans
A good venue will have plans for your reception that cover all eventualities, some you may not have thought of yourself. From the bride’s entrance to sound levels during speeches, to entertaining guests should proceedings run a little late. Of course, you do expect everything to run smoothly but a great venue understands that sometimes there are circumstances beyond anyone’s control, such as the weather or a missing guest. They’ll have solutions for these small problems, so you can enjoy your day knowing someone else is taking care of the stress.

Other attributes to look out for include:
• Parking Spaces
• Food and Drinks Menu
• Proximity to Honeymoon Hotel
• Guest Capacity
• Changing Facilities

At The Waterside Inverness, we go the extra mile to make your special day extra special with small finishing touches that are completely bespoke to you and your wedding party.”
