Santa brings lots of great presents at Christmas time and one gift that is popular that day is a diamond engagement ring! It’s easy to see why this would be a popular day for a sparkly ring – it is a day of giving, it’s a whole season of celebratory events, and looking toward the New Year is similar to looking forward to a new life together.
Between 16 and 40% of engagements occur on Christmas Day. The second most popular day for engagements is the day thought to be the most romantic: Valentine’s Day. Number 3, 4, and 5 most popular days for the “big question” is Christmas Eve, New Year’s Day, and New Year’s Eve! ‘Tis the season to show you love and make the promise of love for a lifetime!
If you are fortunate enough to receive an engagement ring during the holidays, the next step will be to begin planning your wedding! Hawthorn B&B in Independence, MO may be the perfect place to exchange your wedding vows and celebrate the special event. We have special, complete packages for the ceremony and reception. We will provide complete event planning services and coordinate all the elements of your day. If you are more of a DIY person, we will provide minimal coordination services. Hawthorn B&B can provide indoor space for up to 40 guests for an indoor reception. If you prefer an outdoor reception, invite up to 200 of your closest friends to share your big day!
Hawthorn B&B can serve as the perfect venue for a Wedding Shower. If you want an elegant event or a casual party, we can provide the place, the space, and the refreshments for this special gathering.
When planning your wedding, reception, or shower, we will help you evaluate all facets of the event:
Consider the menu and style of service. A buffet may be less expensive while a sit-down dinner will be more elegant. The menu may a full meal, hors d’oeuvres and finger-foods, or simply cake and punch.
Think about the linens. You may want coordinating colors or simple white.
The place settings may be furnished with china or disposable “classicware” (while less expensive, it’s a see-it-to-believe-it item).
Will you need a tent for outside entertaining? We can provide ideas for the style of tent and ways to decorate it.
Consider the wedding rehearsal. There is no charge when you hold your special say here at Hawthorn B&B.
One guestroom is available (complimentary) for the bride to prepare for the ceremony.
You can have your family or wedding party stay at the B&B for an additional charge. How convenient!
If you are lucky enough to become engaged over this Christmas season, begin planning your wedding and reception at Hawthorn Bed and Breakfast for the perfect start of your new life together in 2019!
