As Montco Remains Green, Normandy Farm Welcomes Philly Brides
With the unfortunate news that Philadelphia has delayed its transition to green phase, many Philly brides have been forced to reevaluate their wedding arrangements. Normandy Farm offers short term dates so that brides can still celebrate intimately on their original nuptial day while postponing the grand celebration. Here are 5 reasons why there is no need to cancel your most special day but host it at Normandy Farm on a small scale:
With a micro wedding, you control your budget by condensing the guest list to only your close family and friends. In doing so, you free up funds for the details that are most important to you. A micro wedding allows you to control costs where you need to so that your creativity and personal style can shine where it should.
2. Unique Venues
With a smaller guest count, you have the flexibility to explore more artistic settings and backdrops. A circular ceremony allows each guest to have the best seat to witness your “I do’s.“ When you have 30 guests, think outside the box and skip the traditional side by side seating. The Farmer’s Daughter at Normandy Farm offers the Orchard Room for groups of 42 or less with a swanky lounge area attached, complete with overhead twinkle lights and a fireplace for a romantic and intimate setting.
3. On-Site Lodging & Accommodations
With any wedding, onsite lodging makes for an incredibly convenient experience for guests. You can create an entire wedding weekend experience (view here) without leaving the venue. For micro weddings specifically, Normandy Farm’s unique Carriage and Manor Houses have 9-11 suites each, perfect for a 20-person celebration. Keep family and friends close by in one secluded farmhouse.
4. Customizable Menu
With a traditional wedding, chefs prepare dishes in bulk, so as a result the menus can be restrictive. A more intimate affair allows you the opportunity to customize every aspect of the menu you are offering your guests. If you would like to surprise your guests with a tasty treat during your ceremony, have it. If you'd like to offer a cocktail specific to your favorite liqueurs, go for it! You can even make your reception a multi-course wine dinner. It’s all possible. Our team at Normandy Farm will ensure your wedding is memorable for years to come.
5. After Party Options
After the party, it's the after party! Once you have finished the last piece of delectable wedding cake, your crowd will still keep the party going. You want to enjoy more time with each and every one of your guests—after all, that’s one of the perks of limiting the guest count. At Normandy Farm Hotel and the Farmer’s Daughter, the festivities don’t have to end - with an outdoor and indoor bar and Terrace, you can continue into the wee hours of the night.
At the end of the day (or night), your micro wedding can truly be everything YOU have dreamed of. Every detailed decision is yours, and with customizable options for smaller parties, a micro wedding at Normandy Farm and The Farmer's Daughter may just be what you've been looking for all along...
