A quick tip to consider as you are selecting your reception site this year..... We have recently seen a greater decrease in guest counts at our weddings. It has always been the norm to expect a 15% drop off from your original guest list but that number is now fluctuating.
With so many families and friends that are based around the globe it may be more financially difficult for them to travel this year. Of course we hope this is not the case for you- but realistically it would be prudent to make sure that your guest commitments are on the lower side to avoid paying more than you need to with your venue [ you can always increase your guest count later].
Food for thought!
