Reception Sites 101: Lake Geneva

June 19, 2015

If you’re looking to get away from the city on your wedding day, drive just about an hour south-west to Lake Geneva. The region boasts the ambiance of a bygone era, plus magnificent landscapes and shimmering waters — a picture-perfect, natural setting to host everything from your ceremony to your reception.

Many of the reception venues found in Lake Geneva are clubs or resorts with every amenity a bride-to-be could dream of: outdoor ceremony spaces, gorgeous ballrooms to accommodate wedding parties of all sizes, catering and decor included, and attentive coordinators on staff to ensure everything from the planning to the day itself runs smoothly.

Many of these Lake Geneva venues double as hotels, so you and your guests have the option of enjoying a more extended stay. Some resorts offer fun outdoor activities like golf, horseback riding, and boating — a great way to get your guests up and moving. The balance of indoor wedding elegance with outdoor adventures is what really sets a Lake Geneva wedding apart and creates an unforgettable experience.

If you’re particularly drawn to the water, Lake Geneva has the perfect reception site — or even rehearsal dinner spot! — for you: The Lake Geneva Cruise Line. Every bit as elegant as a Lake Geneva wedding on land, you’ll float on shimmering waters for a wedding day that’s sure to have family and friends buzzing for years to come. After all, how many people can say they got hitched on a boat?
