Choosing A Bed & Breakfast Inn as a Wedding Venue

Congratulations! You’re engaged! The love of your life has asked to marry you. You, of course, said “Yes!” Your dreams have come. But wait! Now you realize that the magical fairytale wedding that you’ve been dreaming about since you were 4 years old is about to take place. And all you have to do is make it happen. Where do you begin?

You should begin by choosing a venue for your wedding and reception, one which reflects your personality. When searching, there are several things to consider. A venue should reflect your personality and be a good fit for the dream wedding you want to have. You may prefer a venue which offers an intimate setting where various wedding and reception activities take place in different areas. If this is your preference, you may want to consider a bed and breakfast inn for your wedding and/or reception. The intimacy and romance a bed and breakfast inn offers will provide you with a charming and memorable venue not only for you and your fiancé, but for your guests as well. A wedding-to-remember, so to speak!

Many bed and breakfast inns, such as The Caldwell House, are historical in nature and offer something unique for your wedding and reception which you cannot get in another venue. In addition, no two inns are alike, and you should search for the one which fits your idea of your dream wedding. Some bed and breakfast inns also offer lodging for guests, which can be a big help if one side of the family is from out of town, state or the country. Most inns that offer wedding services also offer a Honeymoon Suite for the bride and groom. For evening weddings, this is a real advantage as the exhausted bride and groom will not have to drive anywhere to spend the night. Some inns offer the bride a dressing room for her, the bridal party and the mothers, which affords the bride a special time to be with those closest to her. Many inns have unique and beautiful photo spots for those memorable moments to be forever cherished.

Some inns will provide packages including luxury linens, elegant dinnerware and even wedding coordinating services. Be sure to ask what is provided in their wedding and reception packages as this can be a real money-saver.

If your wedding will be in Louisiana, your search can be easily done by visiting the Louisiana Bed and Breakfast Association website where you will find a list of bed and breakfasts arranged by location. Choose your venue wisely to afford you and your guests fond memories that will last a lifetime.
