You have done your homework and shopped around and now you are zoning in on your top choices for a big decision: the venue for your wedding. So, the question has to be asked, "Why would I choose Skamania Lodge over my other top venues?" Well, here are our top reasons why:
1. It's Easy & Stress Free
We, your Skamania Lodge Wedding Coordinators, take care of all the details for the day of. We are here managing your vendors, setting up your centerpieces, making sure we are on track for the timeline & getting you down the aisle (oh, and the rest of the bridal party too!) Your bridal party and mom don't have to be slaving away in ballroom setting up tables and throwing up linens, instead, you can all relax in a Columbia River View Suite with a fresh energizing breakfast, while our hair & make up stylist turns you into the belle of the ball.
2. It's all Inclusive
Let's face it, a lot of "extras" pop up during weddings, but at least that isn't on us, because we include it all. We do NOT have site fees, we have everything you need from the ceremony to the end of the reception included in our incredible packages. Not only does it make it so easy to plan (nope, don't have to figure out how many forks you have to rent!), but it also makes it so easy to budget! You know if you add more guests, exactly how much more the budget will go up. Don't believe me it's all included? Well, here goes the list:
- Amphitheater for the ceremony
- Cocktail Hour with butlered hors d'oeuvres
- Ballroom for dinner & dancing
- Linens, Chair Covers & Sashes (lots of colors)
- Votive Candles for the tables & China Service
- Menu Selection
- Three Hours of Hosted Beer & Wine Unlimited
- Champagne & Sparkling Cider Toast for all guests
- Cake Cutting & Service
- Wedding Coordinator & Supervisor
- VIP Card for Discounts at the lodge
- Guestroom for you two on the night of the wedding
Okay, believe me now?
3. Oh The Activities!
We have something for everyone. You can start on Friday with a wedding golf tournament on our stunning 18 hole golf course. After the rehearsal, we can have a BBQ on our Cascade Lawn near our open fire pit while our summer concert series begins. On the big day, the girls can be pampered in our Waterleaf Spa while the boys take a hike on one of our 3 scenic trails around our 175 acres of pristine beauty. The day after the wedding, invite guests to meet in our Cascade Dining Room for our famous Champagne Sunday Morning Brunch (may I recommend the fresh Belgian Waffles?). There is something for everyone. Why would you want a wedding day when you can have a wedding weekend! If you still aren't convinced, then give us a call and we can talk through the details. It's a big decision to make when choosing the venue, and we might be a bit bias, but we think we are the best with the epitome of the beautiful Northwest in our scenic resort.
