We get some top wedding planning tips from historic Essex wedding venue Layer Marney Tower...: Image 1 We've asked some of our favourite Essex wedding companies to give us their top tips for what to consider before booking your suppliers and parting with your well-earned cash. Thank you to Nicholas Charrington of Essex wedding venue Layer Marney Tower for these handy hints... 

- Whether you have an exact number or a ballpark figure, a budget can help you negotiate realistically with suppliers. The last thing you want is the stress of not knowing where you'll find the money to pay your final balances.

- We live it England, so it can rain all day in July and be gloriously sunny in January. Choose a setting that works equally well in sunshine or showers. Remember, different seasons and days attract different prices, so consider a mid-week date to save money.

- Having an overall vision is a helpful starting point because so many things flow from it: décor, styling, number of guests and the season you marry in. However, remain flexible and visit venues that don't fit your idea, as you may be surprised.
