FAQ's

Are themed weddings in York popular?

Most couples will be excited to plan their big day and think about the different ways in which they can include their personalities within their big day. You could think about choosing a wedding venue that enhances your chosen theme, so, for example, you could think about choosing a historic venue if you are planning a regency-style or vintage wedding. Couples also can theme their decor and wedding attire to further reflect their chosen theme. Either way, York is a great place to hold your themed wedding whether you are looking to hint at your favourite things or want to opt for an all-out theme that your guests won't be able to forget!

Do couples in York routinely hire a wedding planner?

In the United States, hiring a wedding planner to coordinate your wedding day is much more ‘the norm’ than in the UK. That said, York is home to a number of great wedding planners who will be able to plan everything from your wedding venue to your decor and entertainment with ease. A wedding planner is likely to be able to negotiate better discounts for your big day but this also comes with a price tag (usually a percentage of your wedding budget taken as their fee). Some couples will be able to get help from their wedding coordinator at their venue which is a great way to ensure your wedding runs smoothly.

How soon beforehand should my wedding invitations be sent for a York wedding?

With many York wedding venues getting booked up years in advance, it can be difficult to know when to send out invitations to your guests inviting them to your wedding day. With many of your guests perhaps needing to travel from afar it’s important to give them plenty of warning so they can make travel arrangements and book time away from work. Many couples will send out a ‘Save the date’ card first. These cards serve as an opportunity for you to reserve the date without actually sending a full invite with all the wedding details until around 4 months before the wedding. This is a convenient way to let your guests know and make arrangements for your and coming day without having to have all the details planned too far ahead of time.

Is it possible to get married at York Minster?

Whilst it is possible to get married at York Minster, because it is not a regular Parish Church you must obtain a special marriage licence. It is best to get in touch with the Canon Pastor of the church to speak with them regarding what needs to be done in your personal circumstances. If you are unable to obtain the special licence needed you could take your pick from one of the surrounding wedding venues to enjoy your wedding day with the same stunning views of the city.

What dress code should I choose for a York wedding?

The dress code of your wedding is entirely down to the choice you and your partner make to enhance your day. You might have visions of your wedding venue being backed full of guests elegantly dressed in their finest outfits or you might be more focused on making your guests feel at ease and be able to enjoy their day. Whatever you choose, York has plenty of venues to suit the style of your big day and be in keeping with whatever dress code you organise for your guests.

What time does the bride arrive at weddings in York?

What time you have your wedding ceremony is fully down to personal choice although most wedding ceremonies will take place sometime between 11am and 3pm with guests moving to the wedding reception to party on into the night. In York, couples can pick from so many different venues that lend themselves to different feels and numbers of guests. We recommend getting in touch with your wedding venue (especially if you are getting married at the same place as your reception) to see what they recommend in order for you to get the most out of your day.
