Historic homes offer a complete setting for a wedding. Dramatic staircases, decorative fireplaces, large wraparound porches, gazebos and gardens do all the work for you. The only thing to add are fresh flowers and the company of your loved ones and guests to bring the space to life. 

B&Bs with large gardens are well suited for romantic backyard weddings, as well as wedding photos. Many have established rose gardens, trellises, grand porches, cast iron benches and string lighting to set the stage.

By nature, B&B’s offer extra amenities and attention to detail that other venues don’t. Proprietors know the area well and can be a great resource for restaurants, florists, spas and things to do. Other modern day amenities can include hot tubs, in-room massage and spa services, and more. Many B&B’s are located close to downtown nightlife, convenient for events surrounding the wedding like meet & greets, bridal brunches, rehearsal dinners, downtown wedding receptions and after parties.

Tips for B&B Wedding Venues

When considering having a B&B wedding Asheville, there are some logistics to consider.

  • Depending on size, most B&B's have the capacity to host smaller weddings. Be sure to confirm wedding size, leaving some wiggle room so guests are comfortable.
  • Do tables, chairs, lighting, decor come with the B&B or do you pay an added rental fee? 
  • Don’t forget about elderly guests that need assistance with stairs and moving around the property.
  • When planning your reception menu, check with your B&B proprietor who can be a great resource for local food catering options.
