We know how it is. You’re newly engaged, or have even been engaged for years, and you just want to get married to your best friend. If you had it your way, everyone and everything would magically appear in the perfect spot, at the perfect, time, with the perfect touches. But you don’t have a whole year to dedicate to deciding linens & floral arrangements, and you don’t have the budget to hire a wedding planner to do it for you. Luckily, Lesner Inn has a team of wedding professionals who can help you pull off your last minute wedding from start to finish! Trust us, you’ll want to keep reading!
First things first, you MUST choose your wedding venue. This is what determines which vendors are available, and in some cases even the cost of their services. Lesner Inn is the perfect wedding destination that offers a casual elegance, with little need for lavish décor. However, we have a wide selection of centerpieces and lighting to choose from to help you knock another thing off of your wedding planning checklist. Check out the rental items that we offer to help make your wedding shine!
Additionally, we provide all linens, tables, chairs, china, glassware and flatware so you don’t have to go through a rental company. We also provide all food and beverage! Lesner Inn is practically a one stop shop for the last minute wedding in Virginia Beach!

As far as outside vendors go, we definitely recommend having a DJ! ASTRO DJ offers a discount to Lesner Inn couples and they are always our go to guys & gals! If they have a DJ available, they are great to work with and can help you plan much more than just your playlist! They will help you plan everything from your first dances, to your bouquet & garter tosses!
Having a photographer is also key to any wedding! You can’t rely on your guests to take the perfect candid with their iPhones. Make sure to do your research before booking a photographer, and find someone who you vibe with that takes the style of photos that you like. We have a preferred vendors list with great recommendations that we are happy to provide!
Every bride and/or groom need their floral accents! There are TONS of amazing florists in the area to make your bridal bouquet and boutonnieres. But, if you’re looking for something a little more bang for your buck, grocery stores like Farm Fresh & Harris Teeter have a floral department that can do them for you! Regardless of who you choose though, you will need to contact them at least a month in advance so they can order the right flowers!

Lastly, you’ll need something sweet for the cherry on top of your wedding! Whether it’s cake, cupcakes, or cookies your guests will be thanking you for something sugary to end the night!
Overall, it is important to keep an open mind when planning a last minute wedding. If you have a dream date/venue/vendors then planning a wedding within a matter of months is not for you. We hope you consider Lesner Inn for your last minute wedding! Our sales managers would love to meet with you!
