It's almost wedding season in Asheville, NC!! Part I

I was reminded of how close we are to spring here in Asheville by a) the great glimpse of warmer weather we have, and b) the local free paper offering their wedding edition. I thought I'd offer my own take on a wedding edition...
First, I'll start by saying that Carolina Mornings is the perfect accompaniment to a wedding here in Asheville!! What better way to house all of the guests that will be attending than renting a beautiful retreat (or two!) for everyone to relax in and enjoy while not attending your big event?? There isn't a better way, if you ask me! Many of the homes come with wonderful luxuries, such as state-of-the-art entertainment systems, hot tubs, game rooms, hiking trails... all of this on top of super cozy bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens. Then there are the freebies for all to enjoy. In fact, why not find the perfect celebration spot for you and your honey for after the festivities??
The Asheville area provides the ideal locale for any preferred wedding festival: there are plenty of secluded, low-key, small wedding spots (I've even been to a camping wedding here that was awesome! Beautiful, intimate, and everyone hung out for a week, camping together). Check out sites within Pisgah National Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway or Hot Springs (and these are only a few- there are many!!), or something like Hawk and Ivy. For a more formal affair, check out such spots as listed here in Asheville Bridal, The Grove Park Inn, or Biltmore.
Then there is the "stuff" of the event... For a knock- out dress that will wow everyone and support a local, check out Ship to Shore (this woman is amazing!!), or contact the designers at Spiritex.
Stay tuned for my next entry, which covers the ins and outs of wedding decor and all things wedding.
