In our opinion, summer weddings are all about the destination. Summer time is fabulous in Eureka Springs, particularly at the Crescent and Basin Park Hotels.

So if you’re planning your fabulous summer wedding with us, or if you haven’t decided if you are or not, here are few things that are AWESOME about Eureka Springs as your ultimate wedding destination:

Crescent Hotel Wedding Ceremony Eureka Springs, AR

There are packages and a la carte rental options for both venues, as well as for the beautiful and well maintained gardens on the front and back sides of the hotel.

During busy summer days, you can enjoy a good meal and fun entertainment at the Balcony Bar and Restaurant located in the Basin Park Hotel: Check out this video of Summertime at the Balcony.

Spring Weddings

Spring Weddings in Eureka Springs, Arkansas are popular for the obvious reasons of spring color and bloom but for also providing warmer temperatures from the winter frost and the cooler temperatures from the southern heat.  Start your new life celebration during the Springtime in the Ozarks.

Choose an outdoor wedding ceremony/reception in the Crescent Gardens with additional indoor space of the beautiful Conservatory room that overlooks the gardens.  Or get married at the iconic wooded setting of Thorncrown Chapel and have your wedding reception inside the Basin Ballroom with stained glass windows surrounding the entire wedding space.

Select a wedding cake with spring seasonal fruits or berries instead of the traditional butter cream or chocolate flavors.  Spring flower colors can also be an added touch around or on a cake. Include pastel colors to bring that softer touch to your wedding backdrop and then enhance it with one or two brighter colors.  Continue this theme inside and out of your wedding ceremony or reception space. Some wedding designers even go a little further by bringing in ivy and/or flowers to drape along the wedding chairs for added spring design.

For wedding ideas and venue space our Historic Hotels in Eureka Springs bringing that big picture of your wedding to reality.  Call us today and start planning your Spring Wedding: 800-903-4940

Venue Love: The Ozark Room

FullSizeRender

If you were to visit the Basin Park Hotel, and travel to the first floor, taking a left from the staircase, you would see the entrance to the lovely and unique Ozark Room. Outside the door, on the wall to the left of the entrance, you could read a plaque that perfectly prepares you for the artwork within. It reads:

 

Ozark Room Artwork

The Ozarks Mountain Country

Art Inspired by Nature

 

The Ozarks Mountain Country is much more than a geologic highland located in Middle America…it is a work of art waiting to be captured –on canvas, through a lens, or in a poem, play or song- by those who come upon this jewel along the Arkansas Art Trail.

Some say the work Ozarks is derived fro the linguistic corruption of the French abbreviation “aux Arks”, Arks being short for Arkansas. Others say the name is the French term “aux arc” which refers to the top most arc or bend in the Arkansas River. While others say it means “of the arches” referring to the dozens of natural bridges formed by erosion and collapsed caves in the Ozarks region. Regardless of the origin of its name, to an artist, Ozarks means pristine beauty, the kind the first settlers might have seen hundreds of years ago.

 

The art here in the Ozark Room of the 1905 Basin Park Hotel was created by Larry Mansker, a resident of Eureka Springs. It was an “Ozark Spring” that served as the inspiration for these paintings. The larges of these creations depicts a spring morning at Eureka Springs’ Lake Leatherwood.

Larry Mansker very well captured the essence of the Ozarks in these paintings.

IMG_5140

Now the Ozarks are part of every event held in this room: wedding receptions, music festivals, and meetings, among others. We embrace the nature and beauty presented in these works of art, and we hope you will enjoy them just as much as we do.

Money Saving Tips for Receptions

MONEY SAVING WEDDING RECEPTION PLANNING TIPSEureka Springs Wedding Saving Tips

…as compiled by the wedding professionals at the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa** located in “The Wedding Capital of The South”

  • July and November are months with traditionally good weather yet surprisingly offer discounts for weddings.  A “summer sunset wedding” is almost assuredly a success.
  • Choosing a Friday or Sunday afternoon slot could bring meaningful savings.  Be flexible.
  • When it comes to food service, do not scrimp.  Statistics show that a wedding reception guest will remember the food that was served -selection, quality and quantity- above everything else.
  • Consider a cash bar.  Those who want to drink several cocktails can do so at their expense.  For the toast we suggest “glass/liquid in hand”; cutting out the room-wide champagne distribution can really be a nice savings.
  • Make your “show cake” smaller and more impactful.  Additional guest sweets can be easily fulfilled with less expense.  And, if dramatically displayed, cupcakes can make a wonderful surprise for all.
  •  Think comfort when planning your wedding party’s wardrobe for a summer wedding. Style can be obtained in a well-coordinated wardrobe offering seasonal comfort. So if you are planning a late spring, summer, early autumn outdoor event, consider something besides tuxedos for the guys.  It gets really hot when wrapped in a wool-blend… outside… in Arkansas… when the thermometer dances around the 90s. For the bride, less can be more… especially when you don’t have to worry about dragging around the train of the wedding dress in humidity nearing triple digits.  Also, choose from creative, lightweight dresses for the bridesmaids that they will want to wear again!
  •  As the years go by, photos of ALL of your events will create the best “memory chip” of anything else you could do.  It gets all the family and guests involved… and having their photo made make them feel important. So spread your photography dollars out to include casual captured images of the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, bride and bridesmaids (maybe the guys too) getting ready the day of the wedding, the last part of the reception when it is winding down, the post-wedding brunch the next day and of course everyone’s departures.  This way you basically have a wedding documentary that will be so much fun to watch and share with those who attended.
  •  Wedding flowers can be so expensive and can really get out of control quickly.  Statistics show that few guests remember the flowers.  Of course some flowers are needed, so choose wisely. The dollars saved could be applied to maximizing your food presentation.  In fact, some brides become creative at receptions and trade in cut flower displays for edible fruit displays.  Going green has major appeal these days so houseplants are being used for centerpieces.  Each one becomes an on-going, living memory of the wedding and it adds oxygen to the atmosphere.

**The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa hosts nearly 300 wedding events per year and along with Thorncrown Chapel serve as the wedding icons in Northwest Arkansas.
