Grand Geneva awarded The Knot’s 2020 Best of Weddings and Wedding Wire’s 2020 Couples Choice


As wedding bells begin to ring again, trends in the wedding industry are shifting with a focus on health, safety, plus changes in ceremony and reception formats, and overall updates to the guest experience. According to The Knot’s global research, 93% of couples whose weddings are impacted by the virus are rescheduling their big day.


Recently awarded The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2020 and Wedding Wire’s 2020 Couples Choice awards, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, WI is pleased to share that the resort has begun to reschedule weddings that were postponed due to COVID-19.


While increased health and safety measures are a top priority, some couples also opt to take their nuptials back to nature for the additional space and fresh air experiences that such reception spaces allow. For brides who have dreamed of getting married in the American Midwest countryside, Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is one of the country’s top destinations for outdoor weddings featuring 1,300 acres of gorgeous glacier-carved landscapes.


The award-winning luxury resort features several breathtaking ceremony and reception spaces, including outdoor options with beautiful countryside vista backdrops such as sprawling fresh-air lawn ceremonies and a reception in a rustic ski chalet, all of which celebrate Wisconsin’s stunning greenery, fall foliage and winter wonderlands. For couples looking for even more space, the resort’s elegant ballrooms and recently renovated Forum offer all the extra space guests need. The Forum is the largest event space in the Lake Geneva area and features its own private entrance and outdoor patio. Newlyweds and their guests enjoy the resort’s wide-open spaces, award-winning dining, on-site Well Spa + Salon, championship golf courses, and private villa accommodations.
