Weddings at The Ridge Tahoe are amazing. When you consider that WeddingWire recognized the resort as one of 2018’s “truly spectacular” LakeTahoe wedding venues and ranked it among the Editor’s top 20 favorite mountain venues for 2017, that amazingness isn’t exactly a secret.

However, Sunday weddings at The Ridge are a best-kept secret you simply must learn more about. So, read on for the reasons why!

1. Sunday weddings are underrated across the board

That’s the first secret. And the likely reason is that couples aren’t aware of the huge benefits of getting married on the “first” day of the week. For starters, everybody knows Sunday is actually the last day of the week, the best day for relaxation, and the perfect day for everyone’s favorite dining experience…

2. Brunch

But, if you have a Sunday wedding at The Ridge, expect the unexpected. At The Ridge, couples get to create a custom menu including all kinds of everyone’s favorite things — wild mushroom ravioli with red pepper cream sauce and feta cheese, applewood smoked bacon, country potatoes, Tuscany sweet sausage, fruit parfaits, even a crepe station — you name it. A Sunday brunch wedding also lends itself to super-cool cakes. Think a sweet donut tower or savory cheese-layered cake. Anything goes!

3. Sunday Funday

A Sunday wedding at The Ridge will give “funday” new meaning.  The planning team will guide you through the process for whatever you have in mind, from a sweet, simple ceremony on the lakefront to an on-site ceremony overlooking the valley. The best part? They’ll handle all the event details for you. So you and your guests can spend your energy celebrating.

4. Almost always available

If you’ve been trying to schedule your ceremony, you already know that most of them happen on Fridays and Saturdays. Those days book up fast regardless of the venue. One of the loveliest things about Sunday is its availability. If your heart is set on the venue of your dreams, going with a Sunday wedding ups your chances of making that dream a reality — even on shorter notice.

5. Great for the guest list

It’s a fact: Sunday weddings are more convenient for guests, especially if they have to travel. With a Sunday ceremony, guests can head out on Friday or Saturday, then travel home Sunday evening — no missed work. And on a Sunday, guests are less likely to have a conflicting event (like another wedding!).

Takeaway & May Wedding Special at The Ridge Tahoe

Naturally, your guests will want to share your big day with you simply because they love you. But, there’s nothing like an awesome destination wedding to motivate the reluctant, overly busy invitee. And The Ridge is a destination par excellence.
