Unique Wedding Ideas
Faire la Fête Rehearsal Dinner– Toasts and laughter accentuate fresh food and warm ambiance of The Grand Taverne. French trained Chef Dave Gilderson’s creations begin with his balcony herb garden. Fresh made bread and gourmet specialized coffee accentuate unforgettable French American cuisine with World Class presentation.
A Dream Wedding– you have dreamed of this day and your castle and carriage is waiting. Say your vows on The East Lawn of the 1886 Crescent Hotel surrounded by formal Victorian gardens. A daytime reception in The Conservatory is highlighted with glorious natural light. An evening reception is magical under the subdued lighting of crystal chandeliers in the award winning Crystal Dining Room.
A Gallery Wedding-We borrowed this idea from The Knot. Gallery weddings are trending and Eureka Springs has a vibrant working artist community and an amazing number of top notch art galleries. Perfect for smaller ceremonies and for art lovers, an art gallery wedding is a creative way to incorporate the tastes and passions of the couple. Consider the gallery inside The Queen Anne Mansion for an intimate ceremony or reception.
Honeymoon Road Trip– what better way to learn about each other than on a road trip? Drive through the scenic roads of the Ozark Mountains.
