Late Availability & Special Offers

Written by Emma Hla

It’s August (trust me it is, despite the current weather situation!) and lots of lovely Brides are off getting married (*sigh*) and others are coming back from holidays & honeymoons and getting prepped for that “back to school” September mentality (whether you have little ones or not!).

But for me, this month has signified changes. Yep, August is a development month for Coco and we’ll be launching some subtle, yet helpful (and sexy!) changes next month. A future development I’ve been thinking about is a Late Availability & Special Offers section… Would this be helpful folks…?

At the moment, each venue individually lists whether they have any late availability in the season, special seasonal offers or Wedding Open Days where you can snap up a discount! But do you want to see all offers together…?

Here’s what’s currently happening in the Coco Wedding Venues collection…
