Top 5 Reasons to Have a Winter Wedding

November 18th, 2014 by Ray Rosset

  1. Winter Wedding Hot Springs ARNo Sweat, Literally. In cooler weather, you don’t have to worry about make up sweating off your face. And those overcast days mean that your photos will be void of all squinting eyes.
  2. Romantic Atmosphere. What says romantic evening more than a glass of wine while sitting by the fire? If you stay at Lookout Point for your honeymoon, you can enjoy complimentary wine at the Innkeeper’s Reception. You can drink that wine by the fire in the living room or within the comfort of your own room.
  3. Gorgeous Winter Themes. Take advantage of the frosty temperatures and warm up the color scheme for your wedding with gorgeous jewel tones. Or you can give your event a frosted, glamorous appeal with silver accents, white table cloths, and light blue accents. Bonus, these colors are flattering on nearly all skin types, making your event pristine in photographs.
  4. Holiday Event. Take advantage of the time off that your friends and family have for the holidays and make your event one to remember. Not only will your guests love having another meaningful occasion to attend during the holidays, but it means that they will always remember the date of your event!
  5. Save money. The lowest lodging rates of the year can be found in winter months, making your dream of an extended honeymoon a reality. One other advantage of having a winter wedding includes saving money on decorations, since most establishments are already beautifully decorated for the season. These things mean that your budget can stretch further, and that is always exciting.

If you would like to know more about lakeside weddings at our Hot Springs Bed & Breakfast, you can request more information online or call 501.525.6155. We would love to help you plan your celebration!

How Much Will My Wedding Cost?

June 15th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Lookout Point WeddingsCongratulations – you’re engaged! Whether it’s been a lifelong dream or something you were certain you’d never do, a wedding is now in your future. Some couples are surprised to find that before the ‘I do’s are exchanged, they will likely tackle a nightmare of planning, budgeting, and stressing.

Last year, nearly 32,000 couples tied the knot in Arkansas, spending an average of $21,450 on their weddings. The largest portion of this cost was spent on the wedding venue, catering and various rentals such as chairs and linens. Other significant expenses include flowers, décor, and lodging during the event. Choosing a venue that includes all these items with your wedding purchase can reduce the cost and simplify decision making.

With weddings, as with life, a well-crafted budget is an indispensable tool, and a plethora of budgeting resources are available through popular wedding planning sites. How can you insure that you keep your budget in check and still have the memorable, stress-free wedding day that you want? It’s all in the numbers, and not just dollars. The guest list is your #1 budget adjustor – with each invited person commonly adding anywhere from $50 to $200 to your total expense. Consider celebrating your union with an intimate group of close family and friends instead of inviting all your distant relatives and acquaintances. Or perhaps enjoy a private elopement ceremony with the option of a casual reception to celebrate with everyone later. You may find that with fewer guests you can afford a few things you really wanted but didn’t think possible – like gourmet hors d’oeuvres, stunning floral arrangements or a deluxe photography package.

One resource that a strictly financial budget fails to address is your time, which is often even more stretched than your dollar. It has been estimated that brides often spend well over 100 hours planning the big day during a typical engagement. That doesn’t sound so bad when you imagine lazy Sunday afternoons spent creating Pinterest boards, but when it comes down to contacting vendors, signing contracts, and actually putting your dreams into action, the time investment becomes more daunting.

An experienced wedding coordinator can handle the majority of the planning tasks that tie up your limited time, allowing you to devote your free time to what’s most important – the relationship that you’re building. At first thought, the idea of hiring a wedding coordinator may sound extravagant – even counterintuitive for those with a limited budget. However, the knowledge base and business relationships that a wedding professional brings to the table will certainly save you time and stress, and often money as well. Some of the best Arkansas wedding venues include an on-staff wedding coordinator, allowing you access to the help you need at a fraction of the cost of hiring an experienced coordinator on your own.

At Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, we create a special experience for every bride and groom, from the luxurious rooms and delicious breakfasts during your stay, to the seamless coordination of your gorgeous lakeside wedding. You choose from a variety of customizable wedding packages to fit different dreams and budgets. Each includes the most stunning outdoor setting for your ceremony and photos, a caring ordained officiant to conduct the ceremony according to your desires, and coordination assistance from start to finish. Let us make your dreams come true!
