Our properties offer wedding ceremony and reception venues both indoors and outdoors…historic ballrooms to garden settings to a wedding in the woods site. And, your guests can also overnight right here at our hotels as your families and friends arrive for your wedding weekend. Our seasoned wedding team offers the expertise to guide you through the planning process.

We understand the decisions you are making right now and offer the following information to assist in your planning. The information and tips listed here tend to be the most frequently asked questions we get. We hope this helps. In addition to reviewing the information here, we would love to have the opportunity to set up a time for a planning call via phone, or even better, a site tour of the hotels so we can meet you personally and walk you through the various venues we have to offer.

As you begin thinking about your wedding date, think also about the estimated number of guests who would attend. This will help us to suggest which venues might work best for you and we can then direct you to the appropriate Wedding Sales Manager.

You can reach us here at 800-903-4940 or


How to book your Wedding Celebration at the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa and/or the 1905 Basin Park Hotel:

    • Contact us with your inquiry 800-903-4940 or   Please note in your initial inquiry your preferred method of communication (email or phone).
    • Once we have your inquiry, your Wedding Sales Manager will work with you to check available dates, costs, and guidelines.
    • Once you have decided on a date and venue, your Wedding Sales Manager will email your contract to you. You will have 2 weeks to return your signed contract with your deposit, which is $1500 and non-refundable.
    • Once we have your contract and deposit, you are booked! Our Wedding Team will assist you with the planning process.


Our packages are a good value and offer a lot of conveniences. However, a package is not your only option. We also offer ala carte pricing.

With ala carte pricing, we provide the venue space, tables and chairs, linens (if you choose black or white), and service ware as well as set up and clean up. You would be responsible for cake, flowers, photos, decorations, and any entertainment you may wish to have such as a DJ or a band. We have a wonderful list of regional vendors to assist you in finding these services.

If you do not need all of the elements of the package, then ala carte pricing is probably a better fit for you.

Talk to your Sales Manager about Catering options and minimums for some dates.


How Does the Bar Work?

We can structure bar service any way that suits your budget and the needs of your group.

  • You can offer a cash bar, where guests pay for their own drinks.
  • You can host part of the bar.  For example, you can host the beer and wine and let the hard liquor be a cash bar.
  • You can host for just the cocktail hour (limited time bar), or up to a pre-determined dollar amount (capped host bar).
  • And, remember there is a $75 bartender fee per bartender for your bar.


Value of a Site Visit

When planning a destination wedding with us, we can do the planning and arrangements remotely through email or telephone, but if at all possible, it is good to schedule a site visit.  You can meet your Wedding Sales Manager in person and have a comprehensive understanding of the venue.  Photos sometimes don’t do justice to our beautiful historic hotels.   On weekends, it is often possible to see the venue set up and decorated for a wedding, which is a great way to get a vision for your own event.


Can I bring in my own food & beverage?

Our culinary teams at both of our properties pride themselves on providing exceptional culinary service.  We provide all food & beverage for our venues.

Catering menus are online on our website.  Check them out here

Where can I get dressed for my wedding?  Where can I get my hair and makeup done?

Yes…we’ve got that covered, too!  At the Crescent Hotel, the New Moon Spa & Salon offers a full bridal menu of services just for you.   New Moon also features the Bridal Studio which you can rent by the hour for you and your wedding party to get dressed…a great space for this.   You can check them out here.  At the Basin Park Hotel, Spa 1905 offers specials services for you, as well.  You can check it out here.

Parking Information

Parking is complimentary for our guests at both of our hotels.

The 1905 Basin Park Hotel has a large parking lot just a couple of blocks away from the hotel.  We offer free parking for our guests as well as a shuttle service from the parking lot to the front door of the hotel.  In addition, there are many large parking lots just a block below the hotel that offer free parking after 5 pm.

The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa has free parking for our guests adjacent to the hotel.

How Do I Book Hotel Rooms for my Guests?

Your Wedding Sales Manager can set up a special wedding rate for your guests.  When your guests call the hotel to book their reservations, they simply ask for the rate attached to your wedding party.  Rates vary with season and availability and are easily booked through our central reservations system.  We always suggest to the wedding party that they book their rooms early to get their desired room type.


Marriage License Guidelines:

  • You can apply for your marriage license locally at the Courthouse in Downtown Eureka Springs.  Both parties must be present when applying
  • Both parties must have a state-issued picture ID.
  • The cost is $60.
  • Your marriage license must be filed within 60 days of your ceremony at the same courthouse where it was issued.
  • Any further questions regarding your marriage license can be addressed by contacting the Courthouse directly at 479-253-8646.

Wedding in the Woods | Glenwood Hollow

Eureka Springs Outdoor Weddings Ceremony

GLENWOOD HOLLOW ARBOR in the woods of the Crescent Hotel

(EUREKA SPRINGS, ARKANSAS) — There is a magical connection of nature and a wedding in the woods.  The Glenwood Hollow Arbor is a perfect way for a couple to start the most important union in their life.  This perfect site was carved out of a limestone hillside.  At the base of that hillside, along Crescent Trail, is the hidden space with a magnificent 200-foot canopy of trees to serve as the wedding backdrop.

This new Northwest Arkansas Wedding Venue uses about one acre of the hotel’s property.  A naturally wooded limestone bluff is its backdrop.  Cascading down the hillside is an artistically designed waterfall that descends calmly into a small pond right behind the wedding stage.  The semicircle terrace is an arrangement of indigenous flagstone.  At its center is the Glenwood Hollow Arbor, handcrafted of bent cedar.  A designated niche has been carved out of the hillside to the left of the stage to accommodate a musician when needed.  Guests sit on sculpted split-log benches and chair seating, as needed, to accommodate up to 50.  Access to the rustic ceremony site are natural trails and an unassuming driveway for less ambulatory wedding guests.
