Planning a wedding or a special event when choosing a particular Venue can vary according to your overall preferences, a number of guests, and budget. Some couples would like to be more "hands on" such as, planning, food preparation, theme decoration to stay within a budget, other couples will hire a wedding planner and outside caterer within their planned budget.
Our approach to this unique wedding package consists of a 3 day 2 night stay at the cottage and has proven to be the most popular as it helps to slow down and eliminate the need to rush through the most important day of your life that often creates stress and a blur of memories as you rush through the preparation, rehearsal, wedding and reception, not to mention spending only minutes with friends and family catching up with time and special events that are happening every day.
EXAMPLE / Our popular hands on Wedding approach may look like this ...
If your wedding is on a Saturday you will arrive on Friday (any time) with friends or family that will be lending a helping hand to set up, decorate, prepare food, engage in a final practice rehearsal, now get ready to enjoy an evening cookout as everyone gathered around the outdoor fire pit to discuss your special wedding day celebration and now to enjoy taking advantage of not having to drive home, only to return the next day, you can look forward to retiring for the evening, a good night sleep is just a few steps away. Saturday morning enjoy having a full breakfast at the cottage next finalize any loose ends, now that everything is good to go get set to prepare for your big day.
