Why West Lodge Park should be first choice for your second marriage

When it comes to second time around weddings, Emma Beale of country house wedding venue West Lodge Park, has plenty of good advice…

No matter if this is your first, second or tenth wedding, it’s still the biggest day of your life. And whatever you decide to do, you will still want to make it an amazing wedding to remember in a unique and beautiful venue.

You don’t have to invite everyone

This time, you can choose who to invite to your wedding. Of course, there will still be a lot of people at the ceremony, but you can make it more intimate by inviting only your closest friends and family members.

Informal invites

Rather than inviting guests to the wedding by way of a formal letter, it’s nice to have a more informal invitation. For example: “We’re getting married! We hope you will join us on our special day!” This approach sets the scene and lets you present yourself as an exciting host at a memorable event.

Get the kids involved

For couples who have children from a previous marriage, it’s not unusual to include them in the ceremony. Your best bet is to assign roles that don’t require too much time or effort on their part. For example: asking them to stand up with you and hold your rings during the ceremony, or having them present flower baskets to guests as a way of saying thank you for coming.

West Lodge Park Hotel is perfectly equipped for children, with smaller beds and cots available for the rooms.

Make it midweek

You’ll have more flexibility with your wedding dates if you opt for a smaller, more intimate wedding this time around. This could mean it’s worth your time to look at another growing trend in weddings: mid-week ceremonies.

Getting married on a weekday is a great way to save money on your wedding. Wedding venues often offer discounts for mid-week weddings, as they are less busy than weekends. Call  West Lodge Park to talk about weekday wedding dates, and you’ll be surprised at the deals we can offer you.
