With over 4,000 weddings each year, it’s no wonder Eureka Springs is known as the Wedding Capital of the South. The scenic beauty of the Ozark Mountains sets the scene for an unforgettable event. For an intimate ceremony and reception, Arsenic and Old Lace Bed and Breakfast offers the finest in Eureka Springs weddings. Arsenic and Old Lace is a Queen Anne Victorian style bed and breakfast set in the hills of the Eureka Springs Historic District. Original artwork, stained glass windows, antiques and crystal chandeliers create a romantic and inviting setting for your wedding day. The inn can accommodate up to fifteen additional invited members for small ceremonies. There are four package options to choose from or a custom package can be created depending on your needs.
The Basic Memories Package includes a one and a half hour ceremony in your choice of the gardens, Victorian parlor or the veranda and a two night stay in the Chantilly Rose, Monet or Library room. Also included is a minister, three rose bouquets and the groom’s boutonniere. To complete the day, a reception for the bride and groom plus six additional guests will be held in the dining room. Sparkling cider, two champagne flutes and an 8” round wedding cake are also provided. Each additional guest can be included for $10.00 per person. The Romantic Wedding Package includes the same options as the Basic Memories Package but with the addition of a one hour massage for two and a $60.00 voucher towards dinner for two in Eureka Springs. The Ultimate Wedding Package continues with add-ons including a horse drawn carriage ride and your choice of either an Arsenic and Old Lace plush bathrobe or a set of luxurious sheets. Each of these packages can be customized with upgrades to the Tree Top Suite and additional discounts on the cost of lodging for adding guests.
Arsenic and Old Lace even offers the Elopement Wedding Package for Two. This package is exclusive for the bride and groom and includes use of the mansion for one hour. No lodging is included but the minister, sparkling cider, champagne flutes, bouquets and 8” round cake are all provided.
