This time of year many new brides are considering where to have their dream wedding. One of the most popular wedding sites in the Southeast is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina. While the estate itself is a wonderful venue, there are a great many choices of locations for the wedding and activities for your guests.
One thing that many brides don’t consider until the last minute is guest activities. Your guests most likely will be traveling to attend your wedding. Planning some excursions and activities will make the trip even more memorable. Here are some options:
Outdoor Activities. The Biltmore Estate and Asheville area have a great selection of outdoor activities for your guests including bike rides and tours along estate trails, horseback riding, river float trips and carriage rides. For those who want an off-road driving adventure there is also the Land Rover Experience Driving School where, regardless of your skill level, you can drive the latest Land Rover vehicles on an off-road course.
Wine Tasting. Biltmore Estate has its own award-winning winery and wine tasting is a popular thing to do while at the Estate. Your guests will enjoy the guided tour of the Winery at Antler Hill Village. Originally a barn, this is one of the most popular ‘to do’ items on guests attending a wedding at Biltmore House.
Guided Tours. There are a number of guided tours available to those coming to Biltmore Estate such as:
