The Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn and Conference Center have announced that they are noting similar trends, although they have not conducted a formal study. “We are seeing a substantial uptick in weddings which are being booked by couples from out of state, who come to Rhinebeck to give their guests a true vacation experience. With our historic village location, which is walkable to antique shops, fine dining, fabulous shopping, and a number of activities, the guests of the bride and groom can enjoy an entire weekend of fun while they are in town. And many of our couples are also encouraging their guests to experience our local wineries, golf courses, and historic sites, along with hiking, sailing, and everything else the Hudson Valley offers to tourists. It’s a wonderful way to provide wedding guests with a full experience,” stated Phebe Banta of the Banta family, owners of the Beekman Arms and Delamater Inn and Conference Center.
“The Hudson Valley really has it all,” stated Mary Kay Vrba, Executive Director of Dutchess County Tourism. “When couples choose to book their weddings here, they are able to create a unique vacation for everyone who is part of their special day.
