Imagine alpine meadows studded with wildflowers, sky-scraping peaks, whispering aspen trees and the biggest blue sky you’ve ever seen. Now imagine that as the backdrop for your wedding day.
A Rocky Mountain wedding is truly unforgettable, and when you choose to host your mountain wedding at Vail, you get the added benefit of world-class luxury, delectable cuisine, and the attention to detail that you deserve.
Here are a few steps to consider when planning your perfect mountain wedding in Vail:
1. Decide the Mood of Your Wedding
You don’t have to pick your colors yet, but before you start making the big decisions, make sure you have an idea of how you want your wedding to feel.
Do you want upscale elegance? Or a more casual, rustic feel? Choosing the mood will set the tone for quite a few of the other decisions you’ll make for your Vail wedding.
2. Select the Right Venue
Whether you want to go big or have a quiet, small gathering is up to you. Just make sure to pick a venue that’s appropriate to your style and size.
For a moderately sized outdoor wedding, you may want to select the Wedding Deck. With 360-degree mountain vistas that will take your breath away, this is the perfect place to have a truly “mountain” wedding.
For the reception, there are, yet again, a host of options to choose from. For an upscale plated dinner, try the Game Creek Restaurant. Your guests will praise your decision.
Of course, our highly trained wedding planners will be able to suggest venues that would be a good fit for your personal tastes.
3. Pick a Palate-Pleasing Menu
This is one of the best parts of planning your wedding in Vail.
Dream up a delicious plated meal or select mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres for the cocktail reception. We also have plenty of options for those guests with dietary restrictions such as gluten-free or vegetarian dishes.
4. Book Lodging for the Special Day
It’s not a wedding until you’ve booked the honeymoon suite! Your planner will make arrangements for the hotel or vacation rental of your choice.
Many of the hotels in the area offer complimentary turn down and a bottle of champagne on your special night. Some also offer you a free night’s stay on the anniversary of your wedding day in Vail.
Make certain there are rooms reserved for members of the wedding party and out-of-town guests.
5. Arrange for Transportation
Getting around Vail is a snap with the free shuttles, but if you want to make things even easier for your family and friends, you can hire a shuttle just for the wedding guests to take them to and from their hotel.
There are so many more details involved in planning a wedding, but choosing Vail is easy. You can trust our expert team of planners to help you have the wedding of your dreams.
