Wedding Advice from Eastholme Wedding Planner - Selecting a Venue

Selecting the perfect setting for your wedding, elopement and reception is essential to ensure these joyous events will live forever as fond memories for you and your guests.  Different types of events require different needs.  A wedding venue reflects the wedding couple's personality and style. 

If you are planning an intimate gathering with a small number of guests you might consider a bed and breakfast inn that specializes in weddings and events.  Bed and Breakfast Inns are becoming more popular for wedding couples seeking a unique and historic venue.

If you're planning a destination wedding, keep in mind that your choice of venue may limit which of your guests can attend.  Be sure that the location can be easily reached by car or plane and cost effective for family and friends that might attend.

A few things to consider when selecting a venue.........
1.  Total number of guests they can accommodate?
2.  Is our date available?
3.  How many events will be held on the day of my wedding?
4.  Do they offer catering services?
5.  What is the cost for the event, are there any hidden costs?
6.  Are there limitations of what type of decor can be used?
7.  What is their payment schedule?
8.  What is their wedding schedule or timeline for events?
9.  Is there a set up, tear down or clean fee?
10.  Is there bathroom facilities for guests?
11.  Do they have a wedding planner or coordinator on site?

For a unique and elegant venue consider Eastholme in the Rockies Bed and Breakfast Inn is an 1885 Victorian Inn located just minutes from downtown Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs and Pikes Peak Mountain of Colorado.  Located at the foot of Pikes Peak, you'll enjoy the beautiful mountain views and the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains for the ideal backdrop for the perfect outdoor mountain wedding.
