Top 10 Reasons to Have a Country Wedding

Congratulations on the engagement! Now you get to go through all the fun of planning a wedding. There’s a lot that goes into planning your special day, and perhaps the most important decision you’ll make is where to actually have the wedding. We might be a bit biased, but we truly believe that Longmeadow Event Center in Wiggins,CO should be at the top of your list. Our luxury lodge and event venue is the ideal place for a picturesque country wedding. So, to help you when it comes to researching venues, here a few reasons why a country wedding may be right for you. 

1. More Bang for Your Buck:

Weddings can cost an arm and a leg so having a venue where your dollar goes further leaves you more able to spring for the things that are most important to you for your special day.

2. A Picturesque Landscape Always Outshines the Concrete Jungle:

From endless fields to a backdrop of mountains, nothing beats natural beauty for the best photo opportunities. Add in natural sunlight instead of flash photography and you’re sure to have pictures that pop and perfectly capture each moment.

3. Support Local Businesses:

Choosing a family owned business means your money goes to support the local economy and will have a larger impact than if it had gone to a large conglomerate or corporation.

4. Invite Everyone:

Venues have limits on how many guests can be accommodated. The maximums can range anywhere from 50 to over 300. Here at Longmeadow we have a guest maximum of 500 so everyone’s welcome to witness one of the most important days of your life.

5. Indoor/Outdoor Versatility:

No one can predict the weather especially since most weddings are planned far in advance. So if the weather becomes uncooperative there’s always the option to transition indoors to our 4,000sqft Boone & Crocket Ballroom.

6. Great For Kids:

Following on the heels of the last reason, kids will be kids and some will have lots of extra energy. Since there’s lots of room outside they can tire themselves out without making a scene or being underfoot.

7. Easy Parking:

Don’t you just hate it when you can’t find a parking spot? Longmeadow has ample parking space for guests so parking is never a problem.

8. Optional Comfy Shoes:

You’re going to be doing a lot of standing and mingling on your wedding day. Are you a pro in heels? If not having a country wedding gives you the perfect opportunity to wear cute comfy boots like these.

9. More Privacy:

Unlike other venues if you book with us the venue is completely yours. That means as much as you love Vince Vaugn and Owen Wilson, no wedding crashers, no river dancing competition on the floor above you, or any other undesired situations involving unwelcome guests or noisy neighbors.

10. Separation from Ordinary Life:

After your wedding do you want to step outside your venue and instantly be back to business as usual? Or would you like to have some time and space to marvel at the fact that you just got married? Having a Country Wedding gives you the distance needed to gradually return to the daily grind as you share your first ride off into the sunset as newlyweds.
