Summer Wedding Planning in Lancaster, PA Summer SunsetSummer Wedding Planning Tips: Expert Advice for Your Dream Celebration

Summer at Drumore Estate unveils a breathtaking canvas of possibilities for your wedding or event. The historic mansion, sweeping vistas, and lush gardens provide a perfect backdrop for your celebration. However, planning a summer event requires careful consideration. We offer expert advice to ensure your summer celebration is nothing short of spectacular. 

The key to a successful summer event lies in embracing the season’s warmth while prioritizing the comfort of your guests. We, at Drumore Estate, boast a variety of indoor and outdoor venues prepared to host your dream event, seamlessly blending the beauty of summer with the timeless elegance of our estate.

Strategic Timing with Natural Shade:

When planning your event’s schedule, consider a late afternoon or early evening start, especially to take advantage of our ceremony site, which is naturally shaded by 4 p.m. year-round. This thoughtful timing not only capitalizes on cooler temperatures but also aligns perfectly with the soft, golden-hour lighting. It’s an ideal setting for capturing stunning photographs that you’ll cherish forever. The natural shade provides comfort for your guests and adds a magical quality to the ambiance, making it a perfect moment to say “I do.”

Enhanced Guest Comfort with Thoughtful Additions:

To ensure your guests stay refreshed and comfortable throughout outdoor celebrations, we recommend incorporating hydration stations featuring fruit or vegetable-infused water, available for a minimal upcharge. Additionally, our cocktail patio is equipped with large sun umbrellas, providing ample shade and a cooler environment for your guests to enjoy. For those seeking an even more comfortable setting, we offer the option to add on our climate-controlled library. This air-conditioned space can serve as a luxurious retreat for cocktail hour and the reception, ensuring everyone remains cool and comfortable no matter the weather. Our team is ready to arrange these thoughtful details, from elegant parasols to fans, prioritizing the comfort and enjoyment of you and your guests. 

Embrace Seasonal Menus:

Our Executive Chief, Karyn Regitz, Sous Chef Kelly Rosser, and our in-house catering team will craft delectable summer menus featuring fresh, local ingredients that reflect the season’s abundance. Think light, flavorful dishes that will tantalize your guests’ taste buds without feeling heavy.
