If you’re thinking about getting married in the mountains, you may want to consider a Valentine’s “Planning” Getaway. You can plan a romantic Valentine’s escape, have some fun and accomplish a little wedding planning as well.
You can always find great Valentine’s packages and specials at mountain resorts, hotels, and restaurants. Whether you are planning a day trip or an overnight stay, there are usually plenty of promotions such as romantic accommodation packages, ski and stay promotions or simply special gourmet menus to take advantage of. Have you had your eye on a rustic mountain lodge you’ve never been to or have your friends been raving about a great hotel they think would be perfect for your wedding? Why not seize the opportunity for yourself and your loved one and head to the mountains for some much-needed “research”?
If you need more convincing for a romantic mountain getaway, consider this the perfect opportunity to taste a venue’s food, try out their accommodations and test the level of service provided. What better way to know if it’s a perfect fit for you and your guests on your special day? While there, why not ask if someone is available to give you a tour of the reception facilities? Most venues that host weddings will at least have a promotional package listing what wedding services they offer and their rates. Even if you are staying at one venue, there’s no reason you can’t check out a few venues in the area too!
Here are a few Valentine’s Specials we found in our “research” after returning from a short stay at the picturesque Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, BC (our idea of a perfect winter wedding venue):
- Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts (CRMR) has Valentine’s Promotions to stay at either the beautiful Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, AB or the incredible Emerald Lake Lodge in Field, BC with rates starting at $150 and $170. respectively, per person (based on double occupancy). Both these resorts are absolutely amazing with stunning views, great food, and service!
- A three-course, special Valentine’s Day menu at the contemporary Juniper Hotel and Bistro in beautiful Banff, Alberta. Their food is always amazing and worth every delectable bite of “research”.
- With its new luxury spa and signature luxury cabins, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge is a perfect Valentine’s retreat for you and your sweetie. Check out their year-round Jasper Romance Package.
- The stunning luxury boutique hotel, The Grande Rockies in Canmore, Alberta is another amazing venue with incredible food and level of service. They are offering a Money Can’t Buy Love Special from $199. and a Luxurious Love package featuring a romantic five-course dinner, SMORE package, and accommodations.
All these fabulous venues offer wedding day services and are, in our opinion, worth the visit! *Please consult the venue of your choice for availability and restrictions as rates and packages may be subject to change.
Naturally Chic is available for a complimentary initial meeting. As part of our Valentine’s promotion, we are also available to assist you on a venue tour of choice from February 12th to the 14th (subject to availability of the venue*). We can assist you in asking the venue questions pertinent to your wedding and help you determine if a particular venue is a good match for your wedding vision. Does it have the right feel and atmosphere for the type of wedding you are envisioning? Does it have space and capacity to hold all your wedding guests? Is it within your budget? Are there extra costs not listed in their wedding package?
*Please note prices are subject to changes. Please call the venue for current rates on any of their accommodations or packages.
