1: Interactive Rehearsal Dinner – Set the tone by inviting your close guests to get involved during the rehearsal meal. Whether it’s a  barbecue at Masa’s Bar + Grill, an alpine fondue at the Sunburst Lodge with a starlight descent to the village, or a local wine tasting with small plates. Having your two sides come together over a customized dinner in a unique venue will give everyone an elevated experience.

Couples are adding pre and post wedding activities to their guests’ itineraries like a round of golf, a trip to the spa, a relaxing alpine yoga session, or a heart-racing MCC Cart race. Sun Peaks has something for everyone!
