No matter where you decide to hold your destination wedding, odds are your perfect venue is out there. For couple’s interested in saying “I do” in Texas, we have a great option which is perfect for destination weddings. Lakeway Resort & Spa, located about 20 miles from Austin, Texas, has long been the getaway choice for the whos-who of Texas society. The resort is now catering to couples looking to exchange vows with three great packages. The best part? Lakeway hasn’t forgotten about the groom as sometimes happens. There are great packages not only for the bride and her friends, but for the groom as well! Here’s what the hotel has to offer:
“The Bride can start out with a Brunch Cabana Party with the girls in a private pool/lakeside cabana while getting pampered with manicures and pedicures to prepare for the big day (starts at $40 per person), while the groom-to-be enjoys a Groom’s Day at the Lake by grilling burgers and having a few cold ones onboard The Shark Party Barge on Lake Travis. The captain will take the boys for a cruise, then anchor in a partycove for some coolin’ off by plunging down the waterslide into Lake Travis. They will then head back to Lakeway Resort and Spa to continue the fun at the Pool Bar overlooking the lake (starts at $60 per person).
Lakeway Resort and Spa also offers an original take on the traditional Rehearsal Dinner by welcoming guests for a two-hour cruise onboard the Legacy Yacht for a customized dinner buffet and a full or partial bar (starts at $75 per person). Complete the destination wedding with a farewell brunch to guests the same way they were welcomed. Sail out for a two-hour cruise onboard the Legacy Yacht for a Departure Brunch and let the Bloody Mary’s and Mimosa’s flow while enjoying great food from the full brunch buffet before saying good bye to family and friends (starting at $45 per person).
Couples who are looking to renew their vows can enjoy an intimate setting onboard the boat as the captain charters around Lake Travis while you renew your vows at sunset. Celebrate with friends and family after the ceremony with reception food and a full or partial bar (starts at $140 per person).”
Texas may not have been your first thought when you were considering destinations for your wedding, but Lakeway Resort & Spa proves they can certainly accommodate you! Happy venue hunting!
