Over the years, Flathead Lake Lodge has had the distinct privilege of seeing couples from all over the country exchange vows. We feel lucky to have been a small part of these weddings…call us sentimental, but we’re looking forward to being a part of future celebrations.

For brides, grooms, spouses and partners looking for a perfect wedding destination, Montana’s Flathead Lake Lodge may be the place for you. At our family-owned and -operated guest ranch, your backdrop could be Flathead Lake or gorgeous mountain views. Each wedding at the lodge is customized to meet your style and preferences, with options that range from country chic to beautifully elegant black-tie affairs.

If you’re considering a destination wedding in Montana or the West, here are four reasons we invite you to consider choosing Flathead Lake Lodge to exchange vows.

1. Rustically Beautiful Location

Flathead Lake Lodge is a family-owned guest ranch that has been hosting guests from all around the world for 75+ years. The lodge is located on the shores of Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in the West. With 2,000 acres and shoreline access, our wedding parties can choose from various ceremony locations, including an island on the lake, a lush mountain meadow or a shaded tree-lined setting. Your guests also stay on-property in lodge rooms and cozy cabins, giving them the ability to combine your wedding celebration with the perfect three-day getaway in the heart of Montana, where everyone will make memories for years to come.

2. Custom Wedding Packages

Each wedding at the lodge is completely customizable based on your vision for the day. Imagine riding a horse up the aisle or cruising in on one of our historic sailboats to meet the love of your life to say “I do” with the waters of Flathead Lake as your backdrop. Or maybe you’ve always dreamt of having a reception in the outdoors and dancing to live music under twinkling lights. No matter your vision, chances are we can make it come to life.

Each of our wedding packages include a three-day/three-night stay for groups of 100 – 125 people, with lodging, meals and expansive activities that include horseback riding, 10+ miles of mountain biking trails, sailing, kayaking and rodeo activities, all included within your wedding package.

3. Vibrant Colors of Spring and Fall

Destination weddings at the lodge are typically slated for May through early June and September through early October, which means your wedding will be set against two of the most vibrant times of year in Montana. While summer gets abundant amounts of attention in Big Sky Country, a wedding in spring or fall may be one of our best-kept secrets.
