We can hear the wedding bells *chime* right here at College Inn Bed & Breakfast! Just this past weekend, we hosted a bride and her bridal party the night before the big day! Let me just say that this is just one of the many perks of working here at College Inn. The weekend started with a lovely breakfast with the bride-to-be and her family. It was so great to sit down and get to know them a little bit. Hearing about the plans this new couple has made for their future together, was truly beautiful. Later that evening, the rest of the bridal party arrived. We had all the rooms set up just right so they felt right at home. The next morning, the hustle and bustle of wedding day preparation was in full swing! The hair and makeup crew showed up bright and early to get started. Everybody was able to get ready in Room #1, and each girl emerged looking beautiful and ready for the wedding! The shining star was the bride, of course! She was radiant and stunning, as she anxiously awaited her walk down the aisle. 🙂
Witnessing the moment that her family laid eyes on her was so special to us. At the end of all our guest’ visits, they leave us with a part of them. We have a new connection- a new encounter- and new memories to store. Our guests are very important to us and we really feel like we get to know them by the time they depart. So, to indirectly play a part in such a special event in our guests’ lives like a wedding, is extra special to us.
We have hosted a few bridal parties over the past few years and it is always one of our favorite things to do. We love being able to make a bride feel as comfortable as possible and always try to do whatever we can to accommodate the needs of her and her family. What’s really neat about our setup is that our house sort of becomes their home. It is a way to bring the bride and her friends the comfort of home that they may not be able to experience at a commercial hotel. The house allows room for several people to get ready, areas for hair and makeup, and of course, endless snacks and drinks for everyone during the festivities. We strive to add personal touches to make their time here something they will include in their memories of their special day.
In the near future, we hope to expand the inn so that we have room to not just host bridal parties before a wedding, but also wedding receptions and more! We want to be the best place to stay for such a special occasion. There are lot of exciting things in the future for College Inn and we hope to continue to give our brides and their families the most wonderful of experiences. Come stay with us and let us pamper you as you prepare for the best day of your life. 🙂
