As Montana’s premier wedding resource, we at Montana Bride have seen a lot of changes in styles and trends over the years, but one thing that has remained constant is Montana’s beauty and diversity as a wedding destination. After a decade of traveling the state, meeting vendors, exploring secluded corners, and planning weddings, we still find ourselves in awe. Although the state is renowned for its scenic vistas, Montana offers a big, bold personality, sculpted by the self-reliance necessary to living generation after generation in the vast Rocky Mountains and wind-swept prairies. Century-old barns dot the landscape, some barely standing, while others still serve their original purpose. Fortunately, many have been lovingly restored and now serve a new purpose befitting their beauty: hosting celebrations. In towns and cities large and small, historic hotels still stand proud, welcoming new generations to contribute to their history. Montana’s a beautiful place, but its true personality is revealed in every layer.
Montana offers a stunning backdrop for any wedding, rustic to elegant, but it also offers your guests and family a place to share new experiences. The state boasts ghost towns to explore, pristine rivers to fish and raft, mountain trails to hike and ride horses, and two of the nation’s most majestic national parks.
So congratulations on your upcoming wedding. We know you’re going to love having a Montana wedding, and we are as excited to share its inspiration with you in this edition of Montana Bride as we were in our first edition eleven years ago.
The 2012 Montana Bride Planner is currently avaialable at Avant Bridal, Alara, Montana Party Rentals, Nove Cafe, Gem Gallery, Plume, Eskay, HeyDay, and Bozeman & Missoula Airports. We will have free copies available at other fine wedding vendors and retailers in the near future. Our online version will be available the first week of March.
