How Will Grandma Get There? The Sundance Mountain Resort is located 55 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport and 45 minutes from Park City. Since you will be required to book between 20-35 rooms if you book your wedding more than two months in advance, Grandma would most likely want to stay at the resort. Room prices start around $254 (according to Priceline) for the summer season.

Party On! Last call is 1 a.m, though events can technically go past that time for an additional $200/per hour. Sundance “quiet” hours are from 11:00 PM to 8:00 AM, and groups might be asked to close function space doors and turn down the volume of music after 11:00 PM.

The Report: 

The Sundance Mountain Resort was founded in 1969 by actor Robert Redford. With 100 rustic suites, cottages and homes, the boutique resort sits on over 5,000 acres near Utah’s Mt. Timpanogos, and is close to activities such as skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking and fly fishing.

Woman Getting Married Says:

I’m a big fan of luxury lodges, and this resort is a great combination of rustic and modern.And let’s not forget that gorgeous scenery! While they do not charge a venue rental fee for parties over 100 people, you’ll end up paying more for alcohol since it’s consumption based vs. per person. I’m definitely not a fan of consumption bars as they tend to add up quickly if you have a group of drinkers (you can estimate at least $81/pp here [$13.50 per drink, figuring 6 drinks per person for a 5-hour reception] if you go with their lowest premium bar option, and that’s not including wine). However, no venue rental fees means that cost will end up evening out to something more reasonable when all is said and done.
