1. Save time

Virtual tours are so simple! And you can view them right from Bridebook. You can do as many virtual tours as it takes to visit one venue in person. This means you can take a look around a few more to find the one that’s perfect for you.

No need to agree on a shortlist of five venues that you’ll visit in one weekend. Check out 10 in one afternoon. All from the comfort of your sofa!

2. Save money

Weddings can be expensive. So it’s fantastic when you find the little shortcuts that save you some money. Check out our article on saving tips here.

Well, virtual tours can be a money saver too! Try virtual tours and save the money you would have spent on petrol or public transport. Then you can splash out on those little extras on your special day, guilt free. Sounds like a win-win to us!

3. Get excited

We know things are tough at the moment. Like, really tough. And sometimes, we just need to think ahead and get excited about what life will be like once this pandemic is over.

A bit of escapism is good for everyone and what better way than planning the best party of your life! Get your partner, grab a glass of wine and block out an evening. It’s time for fantasising about your dream venue. 🏰

4. Get ahead

Lockdowns have been hard. But when this is all over, people are going to be in serious need of a party.

We’re going to have more weddings than ever before. People have been postponing their big day for over a year now and some of the most popular dates are filling up fast.

By taking a virtual tour, you can feel more confident about putting down a deposit to secure a date. A lot of venues are being more flexible with deposits in the current circumstances, so do ask and see what they can do for you!

By securing your date, you can put your feet up and rest easy, while others scramble to get their preferred date once the unlocking starts.

5. Get inspired

Doing a virtual tour can help you picture your own wedding more easily. Often, this can generate ideas for couples about how they want their day to run and what else they might need to plan.

Looking at the lawn area might inspire you to have a cocktail hour before dinner to make the most of the location. Or perhaps that old school dancefloor might just tip the balance in favour of that DJ you’d been checking out.

Planning a wedding is hard. There are just so many options! Doing a virtual venue tour is the perfect way to picture you and your partner on your big day.
