Why not make your wedding celebrations last longer and stay here the night before your big day, as well as your wedding night? A weekend wedding at Loughcrew will enable you to have more time to explore the venue, catch up with friends and relations and finalise any last minute details. The team here can help arrange any activities or final preparations for you, and we have a few recommendations to ensure you are relaxed and prepared:
Invite your best girls to join you for a relaxing yoga retreat to unwind and relieve yourself of any last minute wedding stress. If the weather is playing ball, set up your mats in the garden before the rest of your guests arrive and take in the beautiful surroundings.
Last Minute Pampering
Who says men don’t love a pampering? Whilst you and the girls are getting reacquainted, book a mobile barber to groom the menfolk. We’re talking last minute haircuts, beard trims and hot towel treatments. Bridal party hair styling and cutting and manicures can also be arranged.
Kick the weekend off with an early evening, low key drinks reception so you can gather your guests together for them to get to know each other. If gin is your thing then you won’t go wrong with our gin or cocktail bar. Your drinks will be made before you by our knowledgeable bar staff and finished off with complementary, decorative garnishes.
Casual Lunch or Dinner
Arrange a casual lunch or dinner the day before your big day. It will help set the scene for this special mini-break as you all settle in. We can help to arrange caterers and will set up a pop up dining room where ever you chose. For example, you could have a buffet in the banqueting rooms, a BBQ on the terrace, a dinner party in the dining room or a hog roast in the courtyard.
Arriving at Loughcrew the day before your wedding will enable you to rehearse the ceremony, choose where to have your photographs taken and allow you to add any last minute decorations. Of course we will be on hand to take care of any of your requests, so there will be no need to panic if something needs stitching, altering or ironing too.
accommodation at Loughcrew Estate
Your wedding weekend at Loughcrew will be made extra special by the fact 28 (plus a few extras) of your favourite friends and family will be able to stay with you!
