Even with an eye on the bridal budget, you can still create the wedding of your dreams. We just heard from bnbfinder.com, an extensive site featuring bed and breakfast properties, about just a few of their many listings that offer special all-inclusive wedding packages.
Whether it’s a romantic, country style wedding or a low-maintenance wedding at a beach, brides can have it all and more. Another bonus? B&Bs can offer brides unique locations and options that many standard venues can’t as well as plenty of on site assistance from the innkeepers themselves.
Inn at Riverbend, Virginia
Intimate weddings make a grand statement at the Inn at Riverbend (photo, right) in Pearisburg, Virginia where couples can choose the “Just the Few of Us” package.
Couples submit a small guest list of invitees and leave the rest up to innkeeper/ event coordinator Linda Hayes, who takes care of all the major and minor details for the big day including:
- printed invitations and response cards
- floral and bouquet arrangements
- selection of a minister or officiate
- professional photographers
- the ultimate wedding cake
- a gourmet four course dinner
- a full breakfast
- complimentary gift baskets for the wedding party and guests
- celebratory sparkling cider
Linda also accepts special requests and can easily arrange a river tubing expedition for the entire wedding party.
For couples that won’t be accompanied by wedding guests, the Inn also offers a special elopement package called “Just the Two of Us,” a similar package that makes saying “I do” as easy as checking in and out.
