Luxury Wedding Planner Switzerland
There’s no doubt about it, planning a destination wedding in Switzerland or choosing to elope in the Swiss Alps has to be one of the most romantic, yet adventurous ways to get married. See here our Luxury Wedding Planner Tips in Switzerland.
The Swiss Alps
It goes without saying, the Swiss Alps are all the reason you need to elope in Switzerland. 60% of the country is mountainous, meaning there’s no shortage of jaw-dropping views.
There are over 1,500 beautiful lakes to get married at in Switzerland. Many of these glacially-fed lakes shimmer brilliant blue, and offer great opportunities to swim, paddle, and relax at. Some of our favorite lakes in Switzerland would have to be the Brienzersee, Bachalpsee, and Oeschinensee.
Switzerland is home to over 40 glaciers, making for an epic elopement backdrop. The largest of Switzerland’s glaciers, the Aletsch Glacier, holds over 11-billion tons of ice.
The Best Skiing in the World
It’s no secret that Switzerland is home to some of the best skiing in the world. If you’re looking to hold an adventurous ski wedding, be sure to check out Mürren, Zermatt, and Saint Moritz.
When asking a planner for a luxury wedding in Switzerland
Getting married in Switzerland is beautiful any season, but here’s what you need to know about when is right for you.
Winter weddings in Switzerland are a fantastic time to take advantage of skiing, ice skating, or sledding along the world’s longest groomed track. Getting married during the winter also is a great excuse to stay at a cozy chalet in the mountains and relax in your own personal hot tub or sauna. If you’re wanting a dreamy snowscape, we recommend planning your Switzerland winter wedding in the months of December, January, and February.
Switzerland’s spring climate widely varies, so be sure to plan appropriately for your wedding. By late May, you can expect many of the lower alpine regions to be melted out and green. Higher up in the mountains, the ski season is still going. Late spring is a fantastic time for a lakeside wedding in Switzerland, as the blue colors are the most vibrant from the glacial melt during this time. The snow-capped mountains of the Swiss Alps are also unforgettable in the spring.
Summer is our favorite season for a wedding in Switzerland. By this point, the wildflowers are in bloom, all of the hiking trails are open, and the weather is beautiful. Switzerland’s high alpine regions have generally mild temperatures during the summer months, but it’s not unheard of to experience a handful of 30°C/86°F days. Summer is a great time to explore, and Switzerland’s many glaciers sparkle deep blue.
Afternoon thunderstorms aren’t uncommon during the summer months, so planning a morning-elopement can be a good choice.
Early fall is one of the best-kept secrets for planning a wedding in Switzerland. By this time, the busy tourist season has slowed down but the weather is still nice (and drier than summer). If you are hoping to book a venue, autumn also can be an easier month to secure a date.
