Save up to $2,000 with exclusive add-ons to a 2017 Wedding

With Geneva National Resort and The Ridge Hotel’s in-house wedding coordinators you have all the assistance you need to design a glorious destination wedding day in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in just a few months. Even better, when you set the 2017 date for your celebration, you’ll receive two add-ons!

“It’s not unusual at all these days to have a short engagement,” notes Michele Grasser, Events Manager at Geneva National Resort. “We’ve booked beautiful weddings in 2, 3, and 4 months out – and The Ridge Hotel even threw together a wedding in 72 hours last August when a couple’s venue fell through.”

While three days out isn’t optimal, Grasser says brief betrothals have several advantages, including the absence of what she coins wedding whiplash. “Couples who take a year or more to plan their wedding often see trends in décor and theme change, and then want to switch up their designs,” explains Grasser. “But when you’re planning within a shorter time frame, the trends don’t change that quickly and you stay true to your original ideas.”

From her experience, Geneva National Events Manager Pam Linker says couples with expedited weddings tend to gloss over the details and focus simply on hosting a memorable experience for themselves and their guests. “Tiny details like napkin folds don’t distract these couples,” she muses.

Even better, couples who book last-minute dates often find venues more flexible with pricing, a surprising side benefit that can fund upgrades to premium entrées and top bar packages, which guests really notice, according to Linker.

For their part, Geneva National Resort and The Ridge Hotel start by offering couples booking 2017 weddings their choice of two exclusive add-ons, a savings of up to $2,000. From the menus below, couples simply “choose two” complimentary extras for their extraordinary event.
