    Monterey is the most beautiful city in the world. Lake Tahoe, not so much.

    I’m totally biased and will link you to my wedding pictures if you think Lake Tahoe isn’t beautiful!

    Plus the weather is rock solid in Tahoe in September, but in Monterey you may have fog.

    We decided on Tahoe but, then opted to elope to Colorado. Tahoe is stunning, as you know. Moneterey is a nice option too but, Tahoe gets my vote.

    As much as I love Monterey, I’d probably go with Tahoe because you’re more likely to get agreeable weather there. I’ve attended a summer wedding in Tahoe and it was beautiful.

    On the bright side, either way you go you certainly can’t go wrong!

    That’s a tough choice, but there are only a handful of places that make my heart sing like Monterey:-)

    I might be biased because I live in Tahoe, but the lake gets my vote.  🙂  I like Monterey (in fact my husband and I were just there for a mini-vacay), but I feel like Tahoe has more options (there’s traditional banquet rooms, secluded BB&Bs, the beach, the forest, the mountains, ski resorts, etc…).  Plus, like other bees mentioned, Tahoe weather definitely beats Monterey in terms of predictability in early fall.

    Monterey gets my vote, since it’s 10 minutes away from my hometown. 🙂

    There’s a bridal show in January if you want to see what the area has to offer in terms of vendors..I went to the one in August and it was lovely.

    I think they’re both beautiful in different ways so I didn’t vote. Weather is unpredictable in either places during Sept. Tahoe is 4 hr drive from the bay area while Monterey is 2 hr drive. If I were you, I will keep my options open until I have venue and hotel choices to choose from. I would let those make your decisions (prices and the things the vendors offer). If everything is equal, I would probably let my Fiance have the final say.. it’s just rare that men have a strong opinion about these sort of things so I would let my Fiance have his way provided everything else is equal.

    I’ve never been to Tahoe, but I do love Monterey. What about Carmel?

    I’ve been to both and think Monterey is prettier in September.
