Your wedding planning checklist gets a lot simpler when you decide to find one perfect venue, and we can help you make the most of it.
Benefits of Venues That Double as Ceremony and Reception Spaces
Impressive Cost Savings
We know staying within your set wedding budget is probably a large concern for you. That’s why we designed all our menu and service packages to make the most of your time and money. And we are thrilled that many of our exclusive and preferred venues also provide exceptional value. For example, one of the best Philadelphia wedding venues—Springton Manor Farm—does not charge an additional ceremony fee. Whether you choose to hold your ceremony under its century-old linden tree, in its perennial gardens or in its Beach tree grove, you’ll benefit from this outstanding cost saving.
A reduced rental fee is only the beginning of the list of items that you will consolidate costs on when you host your ceremony and reception in the same place. Other savings include:
- Decorate only one location
- No limo required to shuttle the wedding party between venues
- Only one parking arrangement/fees
- No need to pay for separate vendors or their time spent commuting between celebrations
Simplified Wedding Plans
Time is your biggest asset, and choosing one location for all your wedding events gives back many hours spent planning for celebrations at two venues. Because you and your event coordinator only have to imagine your vision in one place and attend a walk-through of one space, you can spend more time relaxing and rejuvenating leading up to your big day.
Some of the ways that choosing one venue simplifies your wedding needs include:
- Coordinate with one set of vendors
- Abide by one venue’s policies
- Design a floor plan for one space
- Have one rain plan
- Keep all your personal items in one room
Time for Fun Transitions
Free of any worry about complications that may arise when guests have to move from ceremony to reception site, you get to decide how you want to transition their wonderful experience at the same location. Once the ceremony concludes, you can invite guests to another niche on the property or direct their attention to some fun activities while staff flips the room. While we swap out the altar for a gift or buffet table and rearrange and replace other essentials, your DJ can start playing more upbeat music.
While our staff flips the room and your guest enjoy a relaxing bit of less-structured time, couples can spend some alone time reflecting and recharging. The recently renovated bride and groom’s suites at Springton Manor Farm are an ideal retreat. And your guests will be thrilled to hear your DJ announce your return to the party room!
Seamless Experiences Made Effortless
From your tasting to your venue walk-through, our event coordinators are on hand to assure every detail is attended to—giving your guests a cohesive and memorable experience. Choosing one location for your ceremony and reception makes this effortless. Don’t worry about filling the hours between events or finding beautiful photo ops that complement each other. Your wedding story will flow without a glitch when you’re merely turning the pages, not changing books!
