Unless you live in Lake Tahoe, you’re probably looking at having a destination wedding.

AS14

Lake Tahoe is beautiful, but it’s expensive.

Lake Tahoe is a gorgeous location for a vacation, but not for your wedding venue. The average price of a 5-star hotel room on a Saturday night is around $300, and that’s without a view.

This means that if you wanted to hold your wedding reception at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe on a Saturday night, your guests would end up paying over $1000 for their rooms alone.

Lake Tahoe is beautiful, but not so much or weddings.

The Sierra Nevada mountains are gorgeous. The lake itself is an international destination for many, so why is it not a great place for weddings?

There are only a few hotels and venues on the lake, so if your wedding is on another day or you have out-of-town guests who aren’t staying at a hotel, they will have to drive for over an hour just to see your wedding site.

And once they get there? They will have to pay another $25 just to park most likely and can run late to your ceremony.

If your wedding is in the fall or spring and you don’t like snow, you may be in for a surprise.

6 foot storms? You read that right. Lake Tahoe is notorious for sometimes receiving up to SIX FEET of snow overnight. What does that mean for your wedding? It’s probably not going to happen. If you’re in the summer, you’ll likely be safe from a snowstorm.

It’s a 2 lane road all around the entire lake, so you can easily get stuck in traffic.

Lake Tahoe is a huge area. From the North Shore and Tahoe City to South Lake Tahoe, you could end up driving for half a day just to get anywhere.

Most of the areas are very touristy, so expect to experience huge crowds.

Why not skip the headache and choose a wedding venue that’s more relaxed and gets you more bang for your buck? Outdoor wedding venues are great because they have great views, they’re often cheaper than hotel and ski resorts, and they’re easier to get in and out of for any guests who live far away.

Outdoor wedding venues are better for guests who don’t live close to the wedding location, and your outdoor ceremony will be a lot more laid-back and romantic.

If you’re coming from downtown Sacramento, Auburn CA, or even the Tahoe area, you can make your wedding at Mountain House Estate a destination wedding weekend and include many local activities to make it a unique experience.

The beautiful Sierra Foothills and Auburn Valley Weddings make for undeniably gorgeous photos, but these outdoor space/event space options also experience some of the same issues as Lake Tahoe; traffic and crowds.
