Maybe it’s the blue skies. Or perhaps the crystal-clear turquoise water. Or we bet it’s the 300+ days of sunshine every year. Well, we don’t know exactly, but people are often referring to Tahoe as “paradise.” And we tend to agree. Between the unparalleled natural beauty and all the fun Tahoe South offers, it is a top-notch location for destination weddings, but why stop there? Why not extend the celebration of your union with an equally memorable honeymoon in Tahoe?

No matter what time of year you decide to honeymoon, Tahoe South offers so much — from relaxing on the beach to vigorous hikes up to ah-mazing overlooks, golfing, biking, paddleboarding, and parasailing to skiing, boarding, snowshoeing, or cuddling up next to a blazing fire. But no worries if you’re not really the outdoorsy type. Check out the nightly shows, casinos, shopping, brew pubs, and restaurants galore, or plan a leisurely sightseeing drive around the lake. Tahoe South has got something for just about everyone. And what better way to kick off your marriage than spending some quality time together in paradise?

A Winter or Spring Honeymoon in Tahoe

Between awe-inspiring outdoor activities and endless opportunities to get cozy in a premiere resort, a winter or spring honeymoon in Tahoe South couldn’t be more alluring. Invigorate your active side by hitting the slopes, exploring on snowshoes, or going for a twirl in ice skates, then bring a little fairy tale to your romance with a sleigh ride. In terms of where to stay, you can’t go wrong, but you can go really, really right with a cozy cabin at Zephyr Cove Resort or booking a room at The Ridge Tahoe so you can slip into an outdoor hot tub whenever the mood strikes (which will probably be often).

Heating up Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

For many, it doesn’t get much better than the idea of a honeymoon in the summer or fall, especially in Tahoe South where you’ll be surrounded by the lake, mountains, beaches and waterfalls. Whether your idea of getting active means working up a sweat with hiking, biking or kayaking, getting intensely leisurely with beaching and boating, or getting a little extreme with hot air ballooning, parasailing or a gondola ride, Tahoe South has got what you want. And for anyone looking for romance overload, we’ve got five words for you: sunset horse-drawn carriage ride. And there’s also the romantic sunset dinner cruise by way of historic Mississippi paddle wheeler. The authentic Lake Tahoe Cruises vessel sets sail from Zephyr Cove and meanders into picturesque Emerald Bay.

Decompress During Your Honeymoon in Tahoe

Whether your muscles are aching from a nine-mile hike or your honeymoon is all about living a life of leisure, a spa day or couple’s massage is practically mandatory. Indulge at The Landing’s day spa, or bliss out in your own room with The Ridge Tahoe’s in-room couple’s massage.

It’s true, Tahoe is magnificent any time of year for a destination wedding. And having an outdoor wedding in Tahoe is probably the best it can get, what with its majestic mountains, towering pines, and azure blue, crystal-clear waters of Lake Tahoe. But planning for an outdoor wedding in Tahoe can be tough with Mother Nature calling the shots. (As if you need another mother to contend with, amiright?) Rest easy. The wedding professionals at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel can alleviate that concern by offering back-up event space in the case of inclement weather on your wedding day. Check out these amazing outdoor (and indoor) event spaces to choose from at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel.

Heavenly Sundeck and Pool Patio for an Outdoor Wedding in Tahoe

The newest outdoor event space at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel provides an amazing view of the peaks at Heavenly. If you’re planning for up to 20 ceremony guests, the sundeck is a fabulous option for your outdoor wedding in Tahoe. Or use the outdoor space for an elegant cocktail or Champagne reception al fresco. There is nothing quite like the fresh mountain air in your hair and that backdrop, though. If your guest list is a bit bigger, check out the Pool Patio outdoor wedding space, which can accommodate 100 guests for a ceremony, 80 for a banquet and up to 50 for a ceremony and reception and features awe-inspiring views.

Beachfront Wedding Ceremonies on Lake Tahoe

Just because Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is in the heart of Tahoe South rather than situated lakefront doesn’t mean you can’t have a dreamy beach ceremony! Let the wedding experts here set the stage for your Lake Tahoe wedding ceremony on the beach, where you’ll exchange vows surrounded by marvelous mountains and crystal-clear water. Your wedding will be as spectacular as the view.

The Atrium at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel

An exceptional and spacious location to host ceremonies accommodating up to 200 guests, the Atrium is perfect for indoor weddings. Choose the Grand Staircase or the beautifully appointed and romantic double-sided fireplace as the backdrop for your vows. White twinkling lights, lush indoor gardens, and warm, soft colors make this a very popular ceremony or reception location.

Recently remodeled, this exquisite space can transform into the wedding of your dreams with specialty lighting and customized décor. The Ballroom has the ability to be sectioned into smaller rooms for 40-150 guests.

Yeah, yeah. We know it’s not a wedding Instagram account. But you guys, there’s a hashtag out there for Wedding Fails.

Carats and Cake

First, how much fun is that name? That, alone, puts them on this list, for sure!

Using Social Media for Wedding Planning Ideas

Share this:
PinterestFacebookTwitterEmail

We’ve talked about how you and your wedding guests can use social media to enhance your wedding day memories (hello, wedding hashtag!), but what about social media for wedding planning? In all reality, planning a wedding is all about inspiration, right? Or maybe it’s more like stealing other people’s ideas. Either way, social media probably provides the most bang for your buck when it comes to researching wedding planning ideas.

Tools for Wedding Planning Ideas Have Come a Long Way

Not so long ago, brides-to-be stocked up on thick, image-heavy wedding magazines and sat down with a stack of sticky notes to fuel their creativity and form their vision for the big day. But now, social media puts millions of wedding planning ideas at your fingertips. Hmmm…where should you start?

Pinterest Has (At Least) 12 Wedding Planning Ideas to Inspire You

Start by searching for wedding vendors you’re a fan of and follow them on social media. This way, you can keep an eye on the work they post to get a better feel for whether or not they fit your wedding style or even your personality. Pinterest is a very popular platform for people looking for wedding planning ideas and inspiration. Its ability to curate images and articles onto boards makes it easy to see all your awesome ideas organized categorically. But if you prefer to keep your wedding plans and details on the DL, create private Pinterest boards and then selectively share these boards with your bridesmaids, your mom, your wedding planner and invite them to collaborate along with you.

Instagram is Instagood for Finding Wedding Vendors

Even though Pinterest is probably the first platform that comes to mind for wedding planning ideas, more and more wedding vendors are joining Instagram to showcase their work. From photographers to bakeries to florists to venues, Instagram is known for its beautiful photos, and wedding couples are increasingly discovering (and booking) vendors after engaging with them on Instagram. Start searching for hashtags that relate to your wedding planning ideas, or seek out specific vendors and follow their work.

Don’t Forget the Power of Facebook

Another aspect of social media, beyond its ability to cultivate inspiration, is its ability to connect you to key players involved with your wedding. But, for example, with Facebook’s nearly 2 billion active users (that’s a whole lotta eyeballs), it’s not always desirable to post wedding planning ideas for the world to see, or even just your 500 closest Facebook friends. So instead, create a private Facebook group, where you control the audience for your posts. Invite only those you want to know about the details and big plans for your wedding day. That way, you can still maintain the element of surprise for the majority of your guests, but still share, collaborate, and communicate with those who need to know.
