The team at Crear will be here to help with your wedding plans every step of the way. Please don't panic about what you need to organise! We will ensure nothing is forgotten.

Decide Who is Doing What 

Wedding planning should be fun & not take over your life! Decide who is doing what & discuss the issues that matter to you most. 

Please take a moment to read through what is a good idea to think about when you book. Once all the nuts & bolts are in place, you can relax to enjoy all the fun part of the planning. 

Please don't worry about forgetting anything - we are here to remind you! 

As well as asking your chosen Best Man, Maid of Honour, Bridesmaids, Flower Girls & Pageboys, we always suggest allocating tasks to family & friends who wish to help & be involved from the start.


Decide on your celebrant to conduct your marriage ceremony & contact them directly.

Contact your Marriage Celebrant & Registrar

Please contact your choice of marriage celebrant directly to discuss your wedding plans & confirm your wedding dates in their diary.

Please contact Lorna Wilson, our local registrar regarding all your legal paperwork. If you are a non UK passport holder, please apply for any marriage visas required to enter the UK for the purpose of your wedding. 

If you are legally married prior to your Crear Wedding & you wish it to remain your secret, it is possible to have a marriage blessing where your guests should be none the wiser.

Your wedding bus makes for a relaxed day & everyone gets safely home at the end of the night.

Book your Crear Wedding Bus

The Crear Wedding bus makes for a relaxed day as no one has to worry about driving the single track road & everyone gets safely home at the end of the night. If you are hosting a big wedding, you may want to consider two buses - one to collect from Lochgilphead to Crear & one from Tarbert to Crear.

You don't need to know where your guests will be staying & require collecting from at this stage, just to ensure drivers are allocated for your wedding day. Coaches can also be arranged to collect from Glasgow & Edinburgh.

Plan where family & friends will stay so everyone feels included from the start.

Book Barnlongart House & Keepers Cottage

Barnlongart House & Keepers Cottage are ideal for up to 18 guests staying as a large self-catering house party. They offer a three-night stay providing the perfect base for family & friends. Please contact them directly to ensure your wedding dates are firmly in their diary & send them the details of who is responsible for the booking.

We suggest you check availability & notify the hotels of your choice of your wedding booking.

The more you do for your guests, the less they will do for themselves so put the responsibility on them to confirm their accommodation when you send out your saved dates.


Notify the hotels of your choice of your wedding date & check availability.

Finalise Your Guest List ... or make a start

Who gets to be invited to your wedding? One of the most difficult decisions you are going to have to make is deciding who you would like to invite to stay with you at Crear & finalising your guest list to invite to your wedding.

We suggest you have a clear plan in mind prior to telling your family & friends so everyone feels included from the start. Love all your nearest & dearest as you do, four days & three nights together is a considerable time, especially if there are any family tensions.

Remember guests invited to a Crear Wedding say YES & distance does not deter! 

Send Save the Date Cards

The Crear Wedding Maps are ideal to send with your save the date cards. It clearly shows all those who are not familiar with the beautiful west coast that a little planning to attend your wedding will go a long way.

Please note that in our experience guests invited to a Crear Wedding say "YES" - distance will not deter - so only invite those you really want to be with you on the day.

Your Wedding Budget & Wedding Insurance

To keep a lid on the cost we believe that when planning your wedding it is helpful to decide on priorities. Gourmets will want to spend on food, music lovers may want to splash out on the band. Whatever your preference, it is important to plan your budget accordingly.

No one ever expects to have to cancel their wedding however we strongly suggest you take out a Wedding Insurance. This will provide cover for your irrecoverable costs incurred as a result of the unavoidable cancellation of the wedding for reasons beyond your control.



At Crear we believe it is perfectly possible to host a fabulous party that will not break the bank. We offer lots of helpful suggestions to give you & your guests the best wedding experience possible without going over your budget.
