How Will Grandma Get There? Vail is approximately two hours from Denver International Airport, one hour from Eagle Country Airport, and three hours from Colorado Springs Airport. Vail is linked by three villages, Vail Village (where the venue is), Lionshead, and Golden Peak and they are all easily accessible between one another and have a wide array of restaurant and hotel/condo options. Discounted lodging for guests is available at The Lodge at Vail, The Arrabelle, and Ritz Residences.
Party On! Events must end at 11 p.m., unless an extension (which involves additional fees) is approved. Ceremonies are usually held from 5-6 p.m., with cocktail hour beginning at 6 p.m. and the reception ending at 11 p.m.
Important Note: Outside vendors (with the exception of caterers) are allowed.
Situated atop Vail Mountain, The 10th is a restaurant located in a grand lodge with floor-to-ceiling windows, showcasing the Gore Range and the Vail Valley. In addition to offering a five-star menu and an extensive wine list, weddings can be held here year-round, as guests can access The 10th by the Vail Village gondola.
Woman Getting Married Says:
I’ve spent a lot of time in Vail, and while Aspen will always have my heart Vail is just as gorgeous and possibly more family/wedding guest friendly considering the large resorts you have nearby. With that said they are both equally expensive, especially when you factor in gondola fees that enable you to get married on top of a mountain with such a gorgeous backdrop. Having only your reception at 10th will save you over $2,000, and if you are more about the views than transforming the mountain lodge decor, the venue is fairly turnkey considering it includes everything from the tables and chairs to the dance floor.
