Are you planning a South Lake or North Lake Wedding?  You can check out the vendors that all of us Tahoe brides used in the Lake Tahoe threads.  I’ll link to them πŸ™‚

Vendor-palooza for Reno/Tahoe!

If you are planning on South Lake, Mrs. Spring is a great resource… and if you are planning for North Lake, I’m your girl πŸ™‚

Mrs. DG is also awesome for West shore suggestions.  πŸ™‚  If you’re not really sure what shore you are interested in, yet, I would suggest visitng this website: http://www.visitinglaketahoe.com.  It gives a pretty comprehensive outline of the benefits of North shore versus South shore.  Good luck!

Maybe look into the River Ranch Lodge, Squaw Valley or getting married on a boat in the lake.  Good luck!

One thing to keep in mind is that many of the Tahoe venues are public land, so instead of finding a venue with 1 owner and 1 price, you can find a dozen priests with packages for the same place.  If you find a public spot (a park or beach) that you like, shop around for the package that suits you best.  Tahoe is hurtin right now (at least the South Shore where my family lives), so break out your negotiation skills and you’ll be good to go.

Emerald Bay is especially pretty.  You and about 25 peeps can head up to the rock that overlooks the bay and the mountains and have a wonderful ceremony.  More people than that and it gets crowded.  Be aware of the season because it can get WINDY up there!

Here are some beachfront options that I considered:

I ended up going with Paradise Park out in Meyers (about 10 mins outside South Shore).  It was $925 for a 8am-8pm block.  Here’s a video (it’s a bit more upgraded these days):

And here’s a link to a bay area website that offers half off of a lot of Tahoe hotels and eateries.  Could be useful if you are planning a wedding planning trip soon or just for hotel bookings.

Ms. Red Head- I just wanted to say that it was great to see photos from your wedding!  I especially love the photos in the forest!

I’d check out the public parks like Sugar Pine Point and Gatekeeper’s (both on the West Shore).  Since they are public they have a smaller price tag.  Also, SPP’s price decreases if you are doing a ceremony only v. ceremony and reception.  Sounds like you are doing a split site, so take advantage of the beautiful lake view and have the reception somewhere on the lake!  Good luck with the planning!
