We hear it all the time from brides- and grooms-to-be, “We had no idea…” Whether referring to the beauty of our lakeside location – making it an ideal backdrop for breathtaking wedding photos, the variety of our venues – from an elegant ballroom tailored to each individual fairytale wedding or outdoor pavilions strung with lights overlooking a moonlit lake, the number of activities and accommodation choices – making Lanier Islands the perfect spot for a destination wedding, or the “one-stop-shop” experience of working with our team of wedding specialists and preferred vendors for ease of planning the day of your dreams. Since August is “Romance Awareness Month,” we thought it only fitting that you come celebrate this auspicious occasion with us by learning about all that the Islands has to offer for your Big Day!
A Venue for You and You and You: With more than a dozen stunning venues to accommodate your big day, as well as related events such as your rehearsal dinner and bridal lunches, we provide such a variety of spaces that we can play host to several weddings each weekend. Each one is beautiful and distinctive in its own way. Have a special date in mind? Check with us to see which venues are available for your specific date, and then schedule a tour to discover which one is the ideal fit for your occasion.
Putting the Pieces of the Puzzle Together: We’re not going to sugarcoat this… planning a wedding can be a daunting endeavor. However, in working with our talented team of wedding specialists and our preferred and SEASONED list of vendors – including everything from musicians and photographers to designers and cake bakers – you’ll discover that we make planning your big day as painless and enjoyable as possible.
Deliciously Delightful: One of our couples’ favorite elements of planning a wedding at Lanier Islands is the opportunity to work closely with our culinary team to design a reception menu (AND rehearsal dinner menu AND bridal luncheon menu – if you so desire) that is as much a feast for the eyes as it is a feast for the palate. Menus can be designed to fit the theme of your wedding – heightening the experience for your guests all the more.
Attractions and Distractions: An exceedingly popular element of hosting a destination wedding at Lanier Islands is the number of delightful distractions we offer within the resort. While you put the finishing touches on your rehearsal dinner plans and grab a few much-needed hours to relax, your guests can find their own entertainment at our Beach, Boardwalk and Waterpark district called LanierWorld. There’s also ziplining canopy tours, horseback riding, golfing our 18-hole lakeside course, sneaking in a massage at Tranquility – the Spa, renting a boat and setting sail for adventure or exploring the Islands on a resort cart – just to name a few. Our distractions also have the makings of some special outings for the groom and his groomsmen, as well as the bride and her bridesmaids.
A Place to Rest Their Heads: Finally, any great destination wedding must include excellent accommodations for overnight guests. Lanier Islands has that covered. For four years and counting, we’ve received the coveted TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence – based on stellar reviews from travelers on the world’s largest travel website. Our recently renovated flagship hotel – Legacy Lodge – has been designated a member of the highly revered Southern Living Hotel Collection. Additional accommodations can be found at our luxury lakeside Legacy Villas and our cute and cozy bungalows inside our gated Legacy LakeHouses.
So now that you’re more “romantically aware” of what the Islands can mean to your wedding day, we invite you to experience it all firsthand!
