7 Reasons to have an Estate Wedding
If you’re planning a wedding, you probably have a pretty clear picture on the type of wedding that you’d like to have. If your vision includes privacy, a garden setting, twinkle lights, and fountains, consider looking into a private wedding estate. Here are 7 reasons to have an estate wedding.
Estate weddings tend to be a little off the beaten path and usually the public has no reason to be there other than to attend your event, so the risk of onlookers or party crashers is drastically reduced. Consider hiring additional security for that added layer of safety in order to keep anyone unwanted out.
The beauty of nature doesn’t need decorating, just to be cared for. Because event estates are generally only in the business to service weddings, they understand the overall experience that couples are looking for. This means manicured grounds with the flora and fauna being chosen to match most themes and décor schemes with photography opportunities in mind.
3. The Planners
Most event estates come with full packages and planners, and while this may come with a higher price tag, this also means stress-free planning for you. There is comfort in knowing that your planner is well experienced with the venue and can refer you to tried and true vendors who they’ve worked with in the past.
4. More Flexibility
Do you want your dog as your ring bearer or make your entrance in a horse drawn carriage? How about a getaway in a sweet ride. Chances are you’re going to have better luck doing these kinds of things at a private estate. Rules are rules though, so always check with the venue first, especially before dropping cash on an elephant.
5. A Different Kind of Reception
Estates don’t box you and allow you to creatively think on how to use a space. Consider setting up lawn games, have a s’more bar next to a fire pit, spread out blankets for a picnic, bring the grills for a backyard BBQ; you’re only limited by your imagination and what the estate allows.
6. One a Day
You usually have exclusive use of the property when renting an estate for a wedding so you won’t be impeded by someone else’s timeline or having to deal with double bookings. There are even venues that have multiple weddings happening at the same time. In those cases, you’re guaranteed to either have your guests accidentally wander into someone else’s wedding or end up with a few confused attendees yourself.
7. Only Light Decorating Needed
Use nature’s surroundings by adding twinkle lights or mossy chandeliers. Have a clear canopy where you can add an elegant look while still bringing nature in. Since estates are usually outdoor only venues, this is a great option if weather is a factor.
