Eureka Springs Wedding —Small vs. Large

Congratulations to Bill and Becky (Wilson) Young on their intimate wedding.

Congratulations to Bill and Becky (Wilson) Young on their wedding.

Two key words are standing out in our conversations with bridal couples that come to our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast to plan their weddings—small and simple.  They say, “We want our wedding to be about us.  We want to enjoy our wedding and not be stressed over the expense and all the planning.”

A small wedding can be much more intimate.  Frequently we see a few tears shed from both the bride and groom as they express their feelings toward each other in their vows.  It’s really very sweet and they are so much more focused on what they are saying to each other.

The larger wedding puts more stress on the bridal couple.  They are nervous in front of their friends and family and many times less focused on their vows.  The expense of a larger wedding can be very daunting as well.  It’s all about choice and what the two of you as a couple want to do for your wedding celebration.

One of our couples decided to do an old-fashioned elopement.  It wasn’t easy to keep it a secret but they felt they had succeeded.  They arrived at The Inn at Rose Hall laughing about all the stories they had told to their friends about their weekend plans.  They were sure no one had any idea they were coming to Eureka Springs to get married.  The service was lovely with just the two of them.  We enjoyed being a part of their secret.  After their weekend Honeymoon they returned home and walked into a huge surprise party honoring their marriage.  It turned out everyone knew they had become Mr. & Mrs. It was a very happy celebration.

Create your own celebration with a lot of thought.  And do it to express the love between the two of you.
