Having a wedding weekend instead of a wedding day has several benefits:
More Time to Celebrate: With a wedding weekend, you have more time to celebrate with your friends and family. Weddings are a special occasion, and it's nice to have more time to spend with loved ones, especially if they have travelled from far away. Instead of feeling rushed to fit everything into one day, you can spread out the celebrations over the course of a weekend.
Relaxation: A wedding day can be stressful and hectic, with so many things happening at once. A wedding weekend allows you to relax and enjoy the moment without feeling rushed. You can take your time getting The Barn ready, enjoy a get together on the Friday evening with family and friends, and have time to unwind after the festivities are over. Our holiday cottages and campsite make this all the more easier and fun!
More Opportunities for Activities: With a wedding weekend, you have more opportunities for activities. Over the weekend, you can have a round of golf at Avington Park golf course, pub lunch at The Plough in Itchen Abbas, or a big walk or rounders match. This gives guests lots of fun things to do throughout the weekend. A wedding weekend provides more opportunities for making memories that will last a lifetime. With more time to spend with loved ones, you can create more meaningful experiences together.
Destination Weddings: If you are coming to The Barn at Avington from overseas, a wedding weekend is almost a necessity. It gives guests time to travel, adjust to the time difference, and explore the area before the wedding day. It also makes it easier to plan activities and events that showcase the destination. With Winchester and the New Forest on the doorstep, it is great to be able to give couples time to discover and try new things.
Overall, a wedding weekend allows you to create a more memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved. It provides more time to celebrate, relax, and create meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.
