The Cheshire In St. Louis Shares 3 Secrets For Planning The Perfect Wedding + Giveaway
A wedding is a beautiful celebration of love – something that the couple and their guests will remember forever. But every memorable wedding takes planning and coordination, which may feel overwhelming at times. We teamed up with the wedding experts at The Cheshire, a charming luxury hotel in St. Louis, to learn how brides and grooms can plan a perfect event while maintaining their cool.
1/ Remove obstacles.
There are many components to a wedding, so the happy couple should do everything they can to make things easier on themselves. Having a wedding planner on site can help tremendously, as they will coordinate timing, menu item releases, announcements and other details, freeing up the couple’s time. They also may help book the bridal suite or other rooms for pre-ceremony preparations, setting up a joyful day that accommodates all scenarios.
2/ Share your city.
The couple and their guests might stay at the same hotel before, during and after the wedding, but they understandably may need a little space. Providing guests with city guides, transit options and a list of can’t-miss attractions will help keep guests happily occupied. At The Cheshire, guests can lounge poolside, borrow a bike, feast in a variety of hotel restaurants or experience the wellness center. Nearby, guests can easily walk to two movie theaters, boutiques and popular attractions in Forest Park – all while being just a car or transit ride away from downtown and other popular neighborhoods.
3/ Remember to breathe.
It’s ok for a couple to take some time to themselves during or after a wedding. A few hours alone together can do wonders for energy levels and serve as a reminder about why this event is so meaningful. Before returning to daily lives or going on a honeymoon, couples may want to spend a few extra days at the hotel to decompress. In the Cheshire’s themed bridal rooms, the happy couple can savor in-room couples’ massages, rest in a Euro-style pillow-top bed and unwind in en-suite Jacuzzi tubs. After a few days of relaxation, brides and grooms will feel refreshed and ready for the next round of celebrations and congratulations.
