Wedding

Winter has a specific feel, a cozy, wonderland, quiet beauty that is perfect for a wedding. While a summer wedding is a stunning affair, there are numerous reasons that a winter wedding can be the most elegant time of year. 

At The Bowden, we are in love with winter weddings for so many reasons. Our grand indoor spaces bring the outside-in with our floor-to-ceiling windows, natural light, and shimmering chandeliers.  The vast ballroom which can typically hold 627 guests, ensures up to 313 socially distanced guests can safely attend your wedding. We also have an in-house catering manager, day of venue coordinator and a day-of bridal attendant to work along-side you with every detail of your perfect day.

One new wedding trend is a micro wedding. A micro wedding has a smaller guest list (usually under 50 total) with simplified details and a more intimate feel. The advantage of a micro wedding is that it is typically more affordable, and it can stay within local social distancing and gathering mandates. 

Although micro weddings have advantages, sometimes you just want to expand. Is it possible to increase your guest list and broaden your wedding details while still keeping things simple and adhering to current regulations? Absolutely! 

Planning the wedding of your dreams can turn into a budgeting nightmare without careful planning. Sticking to a financial plan does not mean you have to give up the lavish wedding you desire, it simply requires some outside-the-box thinking. 

We have come up with some trendy yet simple ways you can save money so that you can indulge in the grand details that wedding dreams are made of. 

In-person attendance at your wedding is the best way for family and friends to celebrate your special day but sometimes attending in-person is not possible. From physical limitations (for instance an elderly grandmother) to location (a favored aunt that lives overseas or close friend who is unable to travel), there are many valid reasons that those closest to you may not be able to physically share your day.
