For the next few weeks, we will be re-capping some of our most popular posts from our 30 Tips to Planning a Canadian Rocky Mountain Destination Wedding in Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and Jasper series.
These posts generated so much interest, so we decided to re-cap some of the tips in case you missed them. Once the busy wedding season is over, we’ll be posting not only about some of our wonderful couples’ weddings, but also more helpful tips!
This was Tip #2 (originally posted December 10, 2010) :
Planning a destination wedding in the Canadian Rocky Mountains can be a little more complicated than planning a wedding at home. We’ve been sharing tips that will help you plan and organize a memorable wedding in the mountains.
Tip #2 – Consider an “all in one” venue to have your ceremony, reception and guest accommodations all in one place. Not only is this a great eco-friendly option for the environment, but it makes it easier for guests who have flown into the region and either don’t know the region well or are without a vehicle. Your guests will find it easy to get from the ceremony to the reception and they can even take a break in their hotel room if they desire.
Most of these all inclusive venues will offer all sorts of activities nearby or on site for your guests such as; hiking, golfing, dining, shopping or even relaxing spa treatments (great for getting wedding day hair and make-up done too)! Not only that, you may even find that your guests will have more opportunity to mingle and get to know one another than if they were staying at all different locations throughout Banff National Park.
A couple of our favorite all in one venues in the Canadian Rockies are: Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, B.C.; The Rimrock Resort in Banff, Alberta; the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Lake Louise, Alberta and the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Jasper, Alberta. All offer stunningly beautiful scenery, first rate meals, accommodations and a wide variety of activities for you and your guests. And if that weren’t enough, they’re all pet-friendly!
