Rustic, secluded and loaded with modern amenities, the cabins in Beavers Bend are perfectly suited for your big day. Ideal for bridal parties and honeymoons alike, the range of cabin sizes can accommodate a variety of different situations, from an intimate two-person stay in a single room to mansion-size multi-room dwellings. And they all come stocked with wi-fi, kitchen supplies and bathroom amenities.

3. The local drink

Grab a cooler and pay a visit to one of the local wineries, distilleries or breweries. Every drink preference is covered by a local producer, whether your guests prefer wine, vodka or a crisp IPA. If your wedding is the dry kind, you can still find soft drinks and some of the best summer tea at various local markets and restaurants around Broken Bow, Hochatown and Idabel.

4. The local food

Snag a stack of pies for your bridal party from Grateful Head Pizza, or hit up Mountain Man Meat, Hochatown BBQ, or Abendigo’s for the big reception. With these local gems, plus many more to choose from, you can be sure that all tastes will be accommodated—whether feeding the entire party or grabbing a quick bite on the way out of town.

5. Quick escape routes

So, you’ve gotten married, you’ve done the dance, you’ve entertained the grandparents and cousins, said “Thank you” a million times, and you’re ready to escape with your bride or groom. Hit the road in style—by horseback, by hike, by ATV, by jet ski, by boat or by car. Any exit method will do, whether it’s an Irish goodbye or a rice-and-soap filled grand sendoff. Make your exit memorable.
