They also found that 5% of people were managing to get the job done in less than three months!

If it’s good enough for royalty!

2018 saw, arguably, the most anticipated wedding for quite some time; the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Although, it also saw the first wedding in the K-Room at our sister venue, Fairyhill. Which was just as (if not more) important to us!
But the point is, Harry and Meghan managed to plan their wedding in six months. So there’s no reason why you couldn’t!
Gower is giving the South of France a run for its money!
Yes, we know that the British weather is famously unpredictable but we have been experiencing the longest heatwave since 1976 and the hot weather is set to continue next year!
You can hopefully enjoy a beautiful sunny day without the hassle of planning a wedding in a country where you can’t even speak ‘the lingo’…
Take advantage of our 50-acre Gower Garden which is all yours to enjoy for the day. You can even head to one of the nearby beaches to capture magical moments.
Why hang around?
Patience might be a virtue but sometimes good things come to those who can’t wait.
Rather than prolonging the planning process, be spontaneous.
Planning a wedding within a few months can be a liberating experience. Many of our happy couples have told us that they found it exciting and fun.
It also helps if you have a team of experienced wedding coordinators and planners to offer their help and support. Which is exactly what you’ll have at Oldwalls.
Luxury for less
A shorter turn-around time in the planning stages can actually save you thousands as wedding companies are keen to fill any last minute availability, so you can often take advantage of great offers!
With a wedding date looming ever closer, you’ll be less likely to procrastinate or mull over your options too, meaning you have a better chance of keeping a tight rein on the budget.
With key 2019 dates still available at Oldwalls, you could potentially have your dream wedding for a fraction of what you planned to spend. We pretty much take care of all things wedding venue related too, so you needn’t worry about the timescale!
While you might think that turning around a wedding in a few months will mean conceding on style and luxury, the truth is very different.
One way to guarantee both is by booking your wedding at Oldwalls! Of all the reasons to get married in 2019, this is definitely up there (although we’re a little biased…).
Once you’ve done that, simply decide which aspects of your special day are most important and focus on making sure that they happen.
If you both love live music, make sure that you allocate time and budget to sourcing a fantastic wedding band.
If it’s all about finding the perfect dress, concentrate on that.
You know what the perfect wedding means to you, keep that in mind, be realistic about what can be achieved, and anything’s possible in any amount of time, so long as you focus on it.
