When couples begin planning their wedding, some want as many of their friends and family at the event as possible. Others look for a more intimate affair, with only a core group asked to attend.
Whether your wedding size is large or small, the Lodges at Gettysburg, located just a few minutes from Gettysburg National Battlefield, is the perfect spot to say “I do.”
As folks continue to navigate the rules and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, many have reevaluated their priorities. Micro weddings, featuring a guest list of 75 or less, have become very popular at the picturesque location during the past two years. Some of the best times to host micro weddings include July and mid-November through January.
Planning the event is made convenient through the Lodges’ micro wedding package which bundles the venue and amenities into the total cost.
The amenities start with a dedicated maître d’ who will ensure the event runs flawlessly. A customized four-course meal is prepared on site by their executive chef and can be tailored to fit guests’ dietary needs. Their pastry chefs will create on site a multi-tiered traditional wedding cake with complimentary cutting. For those guests who love to snack before or after a meal, a popcorn stand is offered during the reception. As a way to toast the happy couple, guests receive champagne or sparkling cider as a part of the micro wedding package.
The site is a one-stop wedding shop as there are a number of extras that can be added on including centerpieces, linens, tables and chairs. They also offer little touches that will make the day even more unforgettable including sparklers to be held by guests as a send off, a s’mores bar and an after-party bonfire, weather permitting.
The ceremony and reception are held on site so couples do not need to worry about transportation for their guests. There are 28 spacious guest lodges on site so folks can enjoy themselves without having to worry about driving home.
While some venues require couples to commit to a date years in advance, the Lodges can put together an unforgettable dream wedding in just a few months. Only one wedding is performed each day at the venue so couples can rejoice knowing they and their guests have exclusive access.
For those looking to have a small wedding, the Lodges at Gettysburg includes everything you need to have the perfect day that will last in your memories for a lifetime.
