Weddings PREPARING FOR YOUR WEDDING Traditionally the bride’s parents host, finance and organise the wedding, although it is now becoming more usual for both sets of parents and the couple themselves to share the work and costs involved. Here is the traditional list of who does what, which will guide you.

Bride Chooses the type of wedding ceremony and sets the date. Greets her guests at the reception with the groom and both sets of parents.

Chief Bridesmaid Helps the bride to dress on her wedding day, organises all the other bridesmaids, takes the bride’s bouquet during the ceremony, helps the bride to change into her going away outfit and takes care of the bride’s wedding dress after the reception.

Usher Groom Pays for the engagement and wedding rings for his bride, all church and licence fees, bride’s and bridesmaid’s flowers, flowers for both mothers and buttonholes for the men, transport for himself and the best man, gifts for the bridesmaids and best man and the honeymoon. The groom makes a speech at the reception in reply to the bride’s father when he thanks the bride’s parents and his guests, and proposes the toast to the bridesmaids.

Best Man Liaises with the bride’s family to keep up-to-date with all arrangements, arranges the stag night, ensures the groom’s going away clothes are at the reception venue, supervises the ushers, drives the groom to the wedding and pays the necessary fees on the groom’s behalf, passes the wedding rings during the ceremony and arranges all transport to the reception. At the reception he makes a speech after the groom, thanking the groom for the toast to the bridesmaids. He reads out any messages from absent friends and announces the cutting of the cake, arranges transport for the bride and groom from the reception and finally takes the groom’s wedding clothes home.

Hands out service sheets and shows guests to their seats.

Civil Marriages Under the Marriage Act 1949, The Wild Pheasant is an approved premise as a venue for the solemnisation of marriages. The Civil Marriage Ceremony takes place in the Yew Tree room suite There are certain rules and regulations pertaining to Civil Marriages, a copy is available from the Registrar at Ruthin (Tel 01824 706174) You will need to book the ceremony directly with the Registrar and they will charge you a standard flat government fee for their services. We at the Wild Pheasant pride ourselves on the level of service and the quality of our foods. We want to ensure that your day is the best day of your lives - in every aspect!

Weddings EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY

We greatly appreciated your professional help and attention on our day and we found the Wild Pheasant a wonderful and romantic location for our special wedding, Many Thanks Peter and Sue Sittingbourne Kent

I am writing to say what a wonderful wedding reception we had at the Wild Pheasant, we cannot praise it enough, the staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. You certainly did exceed our expectations by a country mile! Cheers Bob and Heather

I write with reference to our daughter Natalie’s wedding held at the Wild Pheasant on Saturday 21st April. We wish to thank you for an absolutely excellent day and evening. The food was excellent quality and the service and friendliness of your staff was much appreciated. In particular we wish to mention Wills, his management before and on the day was absolutely first class and very professional. His co-ordination of the day really did make it very pleasant indeed. We and some of the guests stayed overnight and we were impressed with the accommodation and breakfast. Our daughter stayed in the Dee Valley penthouse suite, we have stayed at many hotels in our time including 5 star in London and the penthouse suite exceeded any quality we have ever seen. Our family room was very good too. We wish you all the very best for the future and thanks again for making our daughter’s day very special. David and Shirley Ruabon 13
