1. The Dress

This element is always number one on the bride’s mind. Finding the dress is the most exciting moment for most women and their close gal friends and family. We recommend you check out a few places in Twin Falls for your dream gown, but here’s where you can start!

2. The Venue

As the bride, you’ll want to display your beauty with a backdrop that’s just as stunning. Idaho is known for its scenery, and you can take advantage of it on your big day! Pick the right venue, have the perfect night!

Canyon Crest Dining and Event Center

The event center is situated along the beautiful Snake River Canyon. Your wedding could take place just above the river with the curves of the canyon outlining your fairytale. The mix of indoor and outdoor space is perfect for late summer and early fall wedding days. This is truly the center of majesty that Twin Falls has to offer.

3. The Entertainment

Guests and party members alike love good entertainment at a wedding. Dancing the night away is basically a tradition for a celebration this big. Live bands can be fun, but there are some other unique things you can do to keep your family and friends smiling.

Music Magic Events

Music Magic Events serves southern Idaho, and boy do they bring the party! With wedding DJ services to photo booths, you can get entertainment that matches the theme and feel of your special day. There’s even a fun twist to what they offer, they have the most famous photo bus in the state! You can add your own personal touch to the photos of your guests by purchasing additional costumes and props that are unique and representative of you and your new spouse.

4. The Cake

Before the send off of the newlyweds, the cake is usually the party finale. Wedding cakes have evolved from your typical two-tier white cake to things more simplistic or even more extravagant. The good news is that Twin Falls is home to some really talented bakers and cake decorators, so you’ve got to pick from the creme de la creme. Here’s where you should stop first.

The Cookie Basket

This bakery is local to Twin Falls, but they produce cakes that could be on TV. Their site boasts their extensive portfolio of wedding cakes that have been created for weddings of every style. If you’re a little less traditional, they do cupcakes, too! Make sure to go in and taste the cake flavors and talk about design quite a bit ahead of the big day to ensure that it’s done in time!
