Enchanting Fort Collins Wedding Venues at the Edwards House
Whether indoor or outdoor, the Lodge at the Edwards House offers many ideal Fort Collins wedding venues for small, Colorado weddings. For fifty people or less, wedding packages include the event space, two guest rooms, help planning your special day, and a list of recommended vendors. The Edwards House staff will also work with you to plan catering that fits your personal style.
Spread out between two floors, the 4,000 square foot building has all the amenities you’ll need for your special day. Your guests will enter the Lodge through elegant French doors into the main room with its majestic, high ceiling, hardwood floors, and gas river-rock fireplace. Adjoining this room is an intimate bar and parlor area for you and your guests to enjoy. Also available to your wedding party is our beautifully finished basement outfitted with a gas fireplace, pool table, dart board, and seating area with a big screen TV. Outside you will find a Victorian front porch, perfect for your wedding photos, as well as a covered side deck.
The Edwards House has also been host to many beautiful outdoor weddings. Our private lawn with intimate arbor is the perfect setting for your ceremony.
We understand that planning your wedding can be quite stressful. Our innkeepers are here to make sure that your day at the Edwards House is perfect. Your wedding package includes a consultation and a walk through of the facility for planning every detail. The Edwards House chef, Rachel Rancourt, and staff have provided in-house catering for many events with a variety of menus, or you are welcome to use your own outside caterer. We will also be happy to provide you with recommendations for outside vendors including caterers, flowers, linen rentals, and cakes.
Another part of your wedding package are the bride and groom guest rooms. There are two guest rooms located on the second floor of the Lodge and they are all yours! The Auntie Stone and William O Collins rooms are the perfect places for you and your wedding party to get ready for the big day. After the wedding, you and your new spouse can retreat upstairs and have these rooms for your magical wedding night. An amazing full breakfast is also included the next morning!
The Edwards House Bed and Breakfast is a great place to house your wedding guests! We have six other guest rooms at the B & B, besides the two included in your package, which can accommodate up to sixteen people. Feel free to look at the “guest rooms” portion of our website for a closer look at the individual rooms and their rates.
The Edwards House requires a signed contract and a $750 non-refundable deposit to reserve the Lodge for weddings. This deposit will be subtracted from your balance due at the end of your wedding less any deductions for damages. This fee may be paid by check or credit card.
The Edwards House has a list of recommended caterers. You may, however, hire any licensed and insured caterer. If you hire a caterer that is not on our list you will be charged an additional set-up and clean-up fee, which will vary based on your group size.
The Edwards House does not have a liquor license. Consequently, if your caterer does not provide insured bartending service, you will need to hire a licensed and insured bartender. We can provide one for you at an additional cost. We only allow beer, wine and champagne to be served. No hard alcohol is allowed! Alcohol may only be served for a maximum of four hours for an afternoon or evening event or for five hours for an all day event.
