Thrifty tips for planning events and weddings at Plas Glansevin

Consider a mid-week event — Exactly the same venue but potentially at a lesser rate. Weekends are in very high demand, so booking on a weekday may mean a considerable cheaper quote.

Keep decorations minimal — Plas Glansevin is already a stunning Georgian mansion decorated with unique artistic pieces, you can afford to be sparing with decorations for your event, whether it’s a party or reunion. Extra tip: use in-season floral arrangements if you want to lessen the cost of flowers!

Eat local — By using a local caterer you can eat seasonal and local dishes where possible, avoiding excessive costs. We recommend Charlotte Roskill or Purple Carrot both of which are well acquainted with catering for all ranges of events at Plas Glansevin.
