Love is in the Air

For all of those couples that just got engaged around the Holidays and New Years- CONGRATULATIONS!!

This is such a fun and exciting time for both of you, and your families. While you will want to get started with the wedding plans sooner rather than later, don’t feel the pressure to dive all in and submerge your entire life in wedding planning.   Take the time to enjoy your engagement and celebrate with your family and friends. Enjoy being an engaged couple and revel in the excitement of the upcoming wedding.

Some couples get so lost in the wedding planning that they start to lose site of their relationship in the now. We won’t lie to you,  looking for a venue and choosing the perfect entertainer and photographer can be stressful. So be sure to brainstorm your ideas together, make a date night every now and then, and go to wedding appointments as a couple. Luckily, Longfellows has some great events coming up in February that can help keep your wedding plans on track and allow you to have a date out, all in one!

Valentine’s Day is just over a month away. Why not take advantage of this holiday to have a mini engagement celebration with the love of your life? This year, since the 14th falls on a Sunday,  you can celebrate on either Saturday or Sunday, or both! Longfellows Restaurant will be serving our great restaurant menu along with a handful of nightly specials. We are also offering two nights of our “Pop-up Dinner Club”- L’Amour. Both nights will feature live Entertainment from the one and only Garland Nelson, a multi course dinner for two and a bottle of wine or champagne at your table. You won’t want to wait to make reservations as these events will sell out!

So maybe a date night isn’t really wedding planning, but it is fun! Look at it as a menu sampling or checking out the band for ideas for the wedding. Our second event in February really is wedding planning and yet it is still a fun day out. On February 21st, we will be holding our annual Wedding Show. The day will start off with a Wedding Education Workshop at 10am. You will learn from professionals in the industry how to choose the right caterer/venue, photographer, dj and florist while enjoying a filling, hot breakfast. (Please note that space for the workshop is limited).

From 11am until 3pm, our entire restaurant will be filled with the area’s top wedding professionals. You and your entourage will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions from all sorts of businesses like entertainers and photobooths, to travel agents and favor providers.  Longfellows will have lavish hors d’oeuvres available all day and our Event Specialists will be onsite to discuss menu options, answer questions about our indoor courtyard space, our catering services and hotel accommodations. And the best part is that it’s free admission!

So what are you waiting for!?! Get out there,start planning your special day, and have fun with it!
