Saving money on your Ladies Weekend by booking at the right time
Over the coming weeks I will be breaking down the main points that are outlined in our YouTube video .
Some excellent savings can be made on the overall cost of your Masonic Ladies Weekend if you are prepared to book it over less popular weekends. Hotel’s still favour weddings over Ladies Weekends (we have no idea why!) so the summer months are immediately out. Remove all other school holidays and bank holiday weekends and you are left with approx 18 weekends.
The best weekends for getting bargain rates would be the latter half of January and the middle of November (before Christmas parties start kicking in on the last weekend of November). This year we have secured some of the less popular weekends at weekend rates of under £100 per person! Getting the weekend at these rates allow you to add a course or two to the Festival banquet, have a live band over a disco or book something different for the Friday night.
Without wanting to sound self promotional (and failing miserably) the best way to get a bargain price is by asking Square Events Management to book the event for you. Due to the volume of business we place with hotels we are able to secure lower rates than people would be able to get direct. I would also stress that there is no charge to the Lodge for this service as the hotel’s pay us a commission for each event we place. Once you’ve chosen your venue we are happy to step out and leave you to manage your own event or equally we can get involved with assisting you in the event organisation.
