Introducing our sister company: Weddingbooker.com – Dedicated Wedding Venue Search Platform

For more than fifteen years Ben, our Managing Director and his event hire team have collaborated
with wedding venues across the UK, working together to make couples dreams a reality. From this
experience and knowledge, Ben could clearly see the need in the market for a totally venue focussed
digital offering to help newly engaged men and women in the UK with wedding venue search and
selection. As a result, in December 2018, WOW Event Hire’s sister company, WeddingBooker.com
was born.


Frugal wedding, but with all the frivolities | Wow Event Hire




How to have a Frugal wedding- with all the frivolities!

Love is in the air… The commitment is more solid than a rock and a wedding is in view. The planning is in motion or shall we say, the dreaming is, more likely in full swing, right?

Everything must be perfect. You and your future half are swaying between a whimsical and a vintage wedding party theme… But every moment of fantasising and daydreaming indulgence is abruptly brought down to earth and spoiled by the money part. The result of talking finances with your loved one is now somewhat veering towards a dangerously building-up debate and a looming disagreement on what the difference is between ‘budgeting for’, ‘conceding on a set budget’ and ‘doing things on a budget’.

Our top tips for planning an A-lister party on a budget 



Planning a great wedding party can be stressful enough, without having to worry about your budget – especially if you have dreams for your event to be rivaling the Kardashians dos! There are already so many things you need to think about, such as choosing the right theme and venue, sorting the guest list, and ensuring you have the right finishing touches. From the music and the lighting, to the decorations and the food and beverages, you want to ensure you make the right impression without breaking the bank.

Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do that will help to create that A-lister celebration whilst keeping your budget in check.

Charlie, a Marketing Executive speaking on the behalf of Hatton & Co, advises: "An A-list wedding or party starts with the planning. There are no two ways about it; if you fail to prepare, then you're preparing to fail. So, the following are a few tips and tricks to creating the perfect day on a budget.

"Firstly, planning is everything. So, for that reason, you should start early. Now some people have been planning their dream wedding since they were little. That's great! You know what you're looking for and you can get started straight away. Schedule different meetings to look at flowers, cakes and colours.

"Secondly, be prepared to compromise. Planning a wedding on a budget is the most simple of tasks which is why you need to be able to compromise and make sure you don't break the bank. After that, you should take a look at the guest list. This one will be a hard thing to do but you're going to have to only invite the people that are important to you. Your closest friends and family. and then draw the line there. Having a bloated guest list will create a great expense which you may not be able to afford."

Transforming Spaces for your dream wedding venue

How to transform a venue for your dream wedding



On first sight, the run-down local rugby club set in the middle of a concrete car park looks less than desirable for the big wedding day you’ve been dreaming about. Unfortunately, the hefty price tags of the beautiful barn conversions and magnificent manor houses you’ve been viewing have abruptly burst that bubble, and now that concrete building with its £75 price for venue hire, flexibility of self-catering and the £2 gin and tonics is suddenly looking a lot more appealing.

Well, have no fear, there is still light at the end of the tunnel, and your vision of a Pinterest-worthy wedding venue is still possible. In fact, it’s a lot more possible than you think!
