How did you, or will you, choose your wedding date? Is it a day with special meaning to you and your fiancé? Or during your favorite time of year? Do you have to plan around when you can take time off work? Or are you throwing a dart at a calendar? (jk)
Any day is a good day for a Tahoe South wedding. Winter, spring, summer or fall, the scenery is epic, shoreline to ridgeline, and there are always fun, pre- and post-wedding activities for you and your guests. At certain times of year, there are great deals, too.
To help you decide, here are pics and descriptions of some of the possibilities.
Now through November
How cool is winter?
Imagine gently falling snow and a festive holiday theme at the mountaintop Ridge Tahoe (left photo by Divided Line Media – CJ Varela) or crimson flames in a granite fireplace at Edgewood Tahoe’s lakefront Clubhouse (right photo Image Angels).
Spring in the air and on the patio
The water turns almost florescent at Tahoe twilight, perfect timing for a mild-weather reception on the patio or the Grand Terrace at this lakeside venue. Photo courtesy of The Landing Resort and Spa.
Summer on the sand
Lakeside venues are also picture-perfect from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel, for instance, can combine a ceremony on the beach with a Grand Atrium reception. Photo courtesy of Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel.
Smart choices year-round
A DJ or band can rock the house any day (or night) at the Hard Rock Cafe | Lake Tahoe, inside Harveys Lake Tahoe Hotel and Casino. Your guests will be surrounded by memorabilia from music legends, too. Photo courtesy of Hard Rock Café | Lake Tahoe.
Moonlight (or sunlight) feels right for a reception aboard Lake Tahoe Cruises’ beautiful paddlewheeler or two-story, 82-foot yacht. The captain, in uniform of course, can also perform your ceremony. Photo by Vernon Wiley Photography.
