My New England Coastal Wedding

However, if it says the same resort ‘starts at’ 00 and you’re open to travelling in off-seasons, off-days and have enough people for a group rate, it might be doable!

As the wealthy traveled in from all over the country, the Frisco Railroad laid track in from Seligman, Missouri and the resort brought the wealthy up from the station via carriage. “Once there, the guest could not only enjoy the healing waters of the spa, but also a stable of 100 sleek-coated horses, tea dances in the afternoon, and elaborate parties every evening with a full in-house orchestra.” (Kathy Weiser) The result was ease of access and luxury in plethora. It brought the gilded age to the heart of the Ozarks.

The next day we woke late and at a leisurely pace. We then sat out on our balcony for a while and finished off the cigars from the evening before. From there we went on to enjoy all there is to do in the surrounding town of Eureka Springs, for which a litany abounds.

Next you need to focus on your personal style. What kind of person are you? Are you whimsical and fun like a beach or more conservative and stylish. Do you like traditional or are you more contemporary? This will decide everything from the menu to the music that gets played. By incorporating your personal style into every detail of your wedding it will come off as a coordinated “event” that your guests will remember for years to come.

Baker hired actors to look like happy recovering patients and sit outside playing cards as wealthy families would come drop off their ill. Upon a new patients arrival he would have them write three letters asking for more money from the families and claiming that things were going well. He would send those letters in the months to come, sometimes after the patient had passed away. He certainly never let any patient leave. So as not to add to the panic of his patients he would lock them all in their rooms at the same time every night and that would be the time that the staff hauled off the dead bodies from adjacent rooms. The removal and incineration of the bodies became a nightly routine. He would tell the patients that their acquaintances had been cured and gone home.

Next we strode to the garden level for our appointments at the New Moon Day Spa & Salon. The spa boasts being the largest destination and resort in Northwest Arkansas. I saved a little money here by not getting done for myself all that i was having done for my wife, but if the point of my trip was to woo her then my participation was obligatory. Again, I can’t complain. And, by the time we left, my wife was relaxed and enamored, a delightful way to go on into our evening.

Do not feel that you need to hire someone to do everything. You and your future spouse can quite easily do many of the tasks associated with the wedding. From centerpieces to wedding favors, you will save money by not having these things done for you. This will also add a personal touch to your wedding that creates warmth.
