We here at the Mansion find that the off season is a great time for us to reflect on the season past as well as decide how we can better improve our offerings as we head into the new year. One of the toughest jobs we have here at Historic Mankin Mansion is letting an eager bride know that her date isn’t available. We find that we fill even our Sundays rather quickly, so the inevitable question would come up every so often- do you have any Fridays available?
Last season, we had the pleasure of adding new wedding planners to the Historic Mankin Mansion family (more on that at another time!) and we’re just thrilled that we have the team in place to make it official- in 2012, Historic Mankin Mansion is pleased to offer Friday weddings!
As of today, we have officially opened up any Friday for weekends that have not been booked by Wedding Weekends. This is the perfect opportunity for those with their heart set on the Mansion for their Big Day, but who may not have had the opportunity to book on the Saturday of their choosing. Friday brides will enjoy all of the benefits of their Saturday and Sunday counterparts, including use of the grounds from 2pm-11pm with five hours dedicated to the ceremony and reception, wedding planning services, valet, rentals of our wedding accessories, use of our tables and chairs and an offsite honeymoon suite to relax after the Big Day, among other things.
So what’s next here at the Mansion you may ask? Stay tuned for our annual “Best of” blog series featuring our 2011 weddings. Additionally, we’re looking forward to introducing you to new members of the Historic Mankin Mansion team!
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming year!
See you soon,
~Paula and Martin Ramirez
