Top-Notch Tips from Past Couples

They say you should learn from others. Learn from their mistakes, their experiences, and their successes so you can succeed, and we couldn’t agree more! Taking advice from previous Lesner Inn couples will help you tremendously when planning your own wedding. We hope you enjoy these top-notch tips from couples before you because getting to hear another perspective of things is the best way to plan for the biggest day of your life!

 

“I would say to just keep things simple, go with your gut and don’t stress over the small details! The day goes by so quickly and you really have to soak in every moment because it’s gone in a second!” – Becca Rebman

“Use a planner! Enjoy the process and don’t get hung up on the little things because when you’re walking down the aisle, the little things that didn’t turn out perfectly won’t matter at all.” – Sarah Smith

“Wedding planning is as stressful as you allow it to be. The amount of decisions that need to be made can be overwhelming at times; however, it helps to have a support system during the planning process. Staying organized helps a lot as well! The best pieces of advice we can offer other couples is to not lose sight of the bigger picture. Your wedding day will go by extremely quick, but the life and love you build together will last a life time and that is something to be celebrated every day.” – Kerry Anne Mose

“Honestly, I would say to try and bundle! We bundled the ceremony, reception, décor coordination, planning, catering, and much more at Lesner Inn and that truly made things so easy for us. Having things taken care of all in one place truly made wedding planning a breeze so BUNDLE when possible! Also, doing a first look with each other was one of the best decisions we made. For one, you save time after the ceremony and are able to mingle with friends and family sooner, and two, seeing each other calmed our nerves that day.” – Kayla Beam

“Our advice is to enjoy the ‘journey’ of wedding planning. It is easy to get caught up in the stress and ‘perfection’ that a wedding has to be but remember the most important thing is that you’re getting married. No one will notice if the decorations are not in the right order or if a bow is not correct, what your guests will take away from a wedding is the overall feeling of fun and enjoyment they experienced.” – Courtney Adkins

“From the very beginning of the planning process to the end of your wedding day, look around and take it all in. It’s the most exciting day of your life!” – Meagan Bailey

“Stay organized and book vendors as soon as possible. Remember, something is bound to go wrong the day of, but in the end, it won’t matter.” – Amanda Lang

If you pay attention, there’s a theme here: take it all in and don’t worry about the little things. There’s no better way to say it. At the end of the day, the things that go wrong won’t matter, you’re going to be married and that’s what it’s all about!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
