Are small weddings a new trend? They seem to be in Foxburg

Small wedding at a chapel in Foxburg

Recently we’ve hosted several small weddings ranging in size from just the bride, groom, and celebrant to small groups of up to thirty in attendance. Certainly the economy has something to do with it, and some folks just can’t afford a large wedding with several hundred guests.

On the other hand, many young people are cost conscious, choosing to save their money for a down payment on a home or some other important reason. With the average wedding in this country costing about $25,000.00 there is ample room for savings.

Our small weddings have cost the new couple anywhere from just a few hundred dollars to just a few thousand dollars depending on the brides attire, the number and type of rooms and the after wedding reception or dinner. Many couples have a small reception or dinner at the Allegheny Grille or a light catered affair on our river deck.

Our couples have sometimes used our Mayor as the celebrant or brought their own minister. Often they have a friend or two who will either sing, play instruments and read scripture or poems.

Foxburg has many venues for small, beautiful weddings. We’ve had couples marry on the hotel’s river deck overlooking the Allegheny River. Others have wed on the bridge connecting the hotel and The Allegheny Grille restaurant. Some have chosen one of the various beautiful water treatments or gardens. Lincoln Hall, our local churches and the Foxburg Country Club are very nice settings for small indoor weddings.

If you’re planning to get married and want a small, economical, but beautiful wedding, we can help. Contact us and we will do our best to make your special day a wonderful experience you will treasure.
