What is a wedding planning party?

When you are planning your wedding, a wedding fayre is often one of the places you will start. Wedding Fayres come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are designed to give you the opportunity to meet and interact with local wedding suppliers and see local venues.

As you enter the venue you see a variety of exhibition stands and pop up banners and you usually work your way around the room talking to suppliers, and hopefully finding some inspiration for your special day. Having worked as a wedding videographer for many years, I have been to a lot of these events, and have always found myself standing awkwardly by my stall repeating the phrase ‘are you interested in a wedding video?’ until somebody says yes! As a creative business owner I know that my work speaks for itself and if you have seen my work in action you are much more likely to be interested in booking my wedding videography services. This is what sparked the idea for a wedding planning party.


The wedding industry is full of creative individuals who are passionate about what they do – they have trained for years to perfect their craft and create unforgettable weddings for the couples they work with. A wedding planning party gives them the opportunity to break out from the confines of a wedding exhibition stand and show you why they do what they do.

To celebrate the launch of Engage Weddings we are bringing our wedding planning party to Hertfordshire so that you can be part of it too. No more awkward conversations at exhibition stands, relax, enjoy a night out with your partner and friends and see the wedding suppliers in action.

With the average cost of a wedding in Britain constantly rising it’s more important than ever to choose the supplier that is right for you, our wedding planning party gives you the chance to try before you buy.

The evening will include a complementary glass of bubbly, entertainment from musicians and DJs and an enchanting experience with a close up magician. You can try out the photo booth and selfie mirror, learn how to create your own flower crowns and be pampered with a mini makeover by our beauty team. There will also be a selection of street food stands and cake tasting to tempt your taste buds.

If you like what you see you can chat to the supplier on the evening, pick up their business card or arrange to meet them at a later date to find out more.

During the evening you will also have an opportunity to put questions about your wedding to our expert panel or have an informal chat with any of the wedding professionals.

The Engage Wedding Planning party is being hosted by Coltsfoot Country Retreat – if you are still looking for your wedding venue, it’s the perfect opportunity for you to chat with their events team, and see how the venue works in action.
