Choosing the Right Venue
As your wedding day approaches, few things seem as important as the venue you and your partner will choose for the special day. You want to make sure the wedding venue you choose reflects who you are as a couple and can accommodate your guests. There are so many little details that go in to planning a perfect wedding day. Choosing the right venue can take a lot of the stress off to make your day even better.
If you both love the outdoors and classic styles, a country club would be a good venue for your wedding day. Or, if you and your partner prefer elegance and sophistication, consider hosting your wedding in an upscale hotel. The Abraham Lincoln is an elegant hotel in Central Pennsylvania perfect for an upscale wedding.
Setting the Scene
Whether you’re planning a wedding or another special event, you want to set the stage for a day of celebration and fun. You may have decided to host your special day outside. This means you’ll also have the weather to consider when making your final plans and preparations.
Adding a backyard structure to the mix can give you a break from the sun, shelter from any rain, and a place for your guests to hang out! Backyard Unlimited is a company that builds and ships the very best backyard structures around. From pavilions to pergolas and gazebos, they have what you want for your celebration!
Taking a Break
If you’re asking people to travel from out of town to your wedding or party, you want to make sure they have somewhere comfortable to stay. In the case of a bigger event, like a wedding, it’s not always practical to have your guests stay in your extra bedroom. The last thing you need to worry about accommodating your guests while you’re putting final touches on your wedding day.
Local hotels, like The Hotel Lancaster, offer great deals and even better accommodations for your special day. If you’re getting married downtown, this hotel is one of the best. Finding a great place for your guests to stay is one less thing you have to worry about. Everyone will have a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads after a fun night at your big party!
Planning your Party
Sometimes your ceremony space and reception space work best being two different places. You may choose to go traditional and host your wedding ceremony in a church. Or, maybe you want to say your vows in a public park. These places aren’t always practical to host a wedding reception after the vow ceremony.
Look to a space like The Inn At Leola Village. This magical inn has everything you need to host a wonderful wedding reception. Moving your wedding party to another space separate from your ceremony gives you time to have your wedding photos taken and for everyone to settle in for a night of fun and dancing!
Adding Finishing Touches
You want your special day to stand apart and be memorial for everyone that attends. Your wedding day should speak to who you both are as a couple. Adding a few personal, finishing touches can help you accomplish that. You never want to add extra expenses to your wedding budget. But, reserving room in the budget for a few special touches will be well worth it.
For example, you can add special, handmade chairs for you and your partner to sit in during your reception. These chairs would be something you can take with you to remember your day forever!
