Find your wedding style

But first things first… you’ve got to know what your wedding style is. If you’re not sure, head to our Easy Weddings app and answer a few questions to receive your personalised wedding style based on your choices in the style quiz.

Wedding venue directory

After taking the quiz, you will get a better idea of what styles and themes you’re drawn to. From there, you can head to our directory and filter out venues based on your ideal venues. We’ve created sections so you can decide between the different types of venues. Of course, some overlap. Here’s the list, including some suggestions of styles they suit:

Wedding inspiration

There’s a ton of great wedding inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram, but we suggest heading to our Real Weddings section before you dive into social media. This way, you can get a sense of the many ways you can incorporate your wedding style in many different aspects of your day. Sometimes it’s helpful to see how an event flows from start to finish at a venue so you can really picture your own wedding in the space. Plus, our Real Wedding section features some amazing photographers and other suppliers you’ll love.
