The 4 Best Reasons to Host Your Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the Same Venue Lansdowne | June 26, 2023June 26, 2023Planning a wedding involves wrangling a nearly endless list of details. From the monumental task of selecting a date that will work within your closest family members’ and friends’ busy schedules to the minutia of what personal care products should go into the restroom amenity basket. Of course, two of the big day decisions engaged couples tend to agonize over most are the wedding ceremony and reception venues. To help ease this pain, our expert specialists are sharing the four best reasons to host your wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue.It’s a Tremendous Stress RelieverWhen you choose one venue for both your ceremony and reception, you can almost feel your anxiety levels go down – for many reasons. First, there’s no need to get dates and timeframes to align between two different locations. (Think about how disappointing it would be to secure your ceremony site only to discover the reception setting of your dreams is already booked!) Second, hosting your ceremony and reception in the same venue is a logistical win because there’s no need to arrange for transportation between venues. Finally, you have the advantage of a single point of contact to collaborate with on all details relating to your ceremony and reception.It Allows for the Perfect Execution of Your VisionTaking time upfront to fully define your personal aesthetic will help inform decisions throughout every phase of wedding planning, especially this one. Whether you have visions of exchanging traditional vows then enjoying an elegant dinner service in a grand hotel ballroom or writing and sharing “I dos” filled with personal stories then dancing the night away on a riverside pavilion strung with rustic bulb lighting, Lansdowne Resort offers a variety of venues to fulfill your wedding dreams – including several options for hosting your outdoor wedding ceremony and reception in the same place. Expert advice: Nervous about planning an alfresco wedding? Don’t be – we have advice to make your big day worry-free.It’s More Convenient for (and Kind to) Your GuestsWe’ve all been here before. You receive an invitation to an out-of-town wedding, see that the ceremony is in one location at 11:00 in the morning and the reception is in another at 6:00 in the evening, and you think to yourself, “Now, what to do between the wedding ceremony and reception?” When you hold both events at one venue, you don’t have to worry about getting out-of-towners from one location to another or how to entertain guests between the ceremony and reception. While you, your new spouse and your wedding party pose for formal portraits (Lansdowne boasts extraordinary settings for these photo sessions, by the way!), your guests can mix and mingle in the cocktail hour venue.It Opens the Door to a Non-Stop CelebrationWhen you host your ceremony and reception at Lansdowne Resort with our multiple event venues, AAA Four Diamond accommodations and plentiful things to do, you also have the golden opportunity to extend the festivities surrounding your big day.
