A very helpful site!

28 Apr

Who knew?!? The average cost of a wedding in Athens is between $17,366 and $28,944 or between $159 and $194 per guest.

Look up the average cost of a wedding by zip code!  Helpful cost estimators and budget breakdowns are also included at Costofwedding.com.

We wish we could tell you the average cost of a wedding here at the Inn, however they are all so unique and different; all different sizes, offering different menus, bars, cakes, entertainment, etc. The best way to find out is to call or email our wedding sales managers with your event details including date, size and style of reception (seated meal, stations or buffet). Email Casey@Foundryparkinn.com to get an estimate!

D’Arcy & Nathan

22 Apr

D’Arcy, quite possibly the most stylish of brides, knew how to put together a beautiful wedding full of flair and grace.  This winter wedding was held in Galleria Two and The Melting Point, and guests danced the night away to the sounds of The Heather Hayes Experience, Heather being the daughter of Soul Legend, Isaac Hayes.

Twin Hearts Photography captured the soiree beautifully  while coordinator Carol Whitlow worked to make sure the night was seamless.

The Foundry Park Inn has been chosen to be the host venue for the first ever Athens NOT Wedding!

September 12th, 2013 is the big day and we are so very excited to participate.

The Not Wedding is a new twist on a bridal show, where brides are able to see vendors in action.  It is a big fake wedding, complete with bride, groom, ceremony, dance party, bar and cake.  Guests are brides and grooms-to-be who are able to experience the wedding venue, food, photographers at work, music, etc.
