Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a refined wedding venue located in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Set in the picturesque countryside just an hour’s drive from Milwaukee or Chicago, this resort is a convenient location for guests traveling from either city. Featuring neatly landscaped grounds, complete with water features and 62,000 square feet of event space, this venue is a Midwestern gem.

Facilities and Capacity

With eight different event spaces, the resort can accommodate a wide variety of weddings. The Grand Ballroom, one of the venue’s largest rooms, can seat 400 guests comfortably. It is a beautiful space for classic receptions large enough for dancing and banquet-style seating. Larger events are held in the Forum, which can be separated into four rooms or opened up to host weddings of up to 1,000. The Linwood Ballroom is ideal for intimate weddings of 40 to 80 guests, while retaining a timeless ballroom setting. Small weddings and rehearsal dinners can be held in a private dining room in either the Ristorante Brissago or Geneva Chophouse. The venue’s two lawns provide an idyllic backdrop for outdoor ceremonies. Guests traveling from out of town can take advantage of the resort’s 609 rooms with block discounts for weddings.

Services Offered

Three customizable wedding packages are available, covering important details from the cake to the wedding night suite. Packages are designed to fit within any budget so that every couple can have their dream wedding. Couples can choose to add spa services or trolley transportation to upgrade their wedding experience. A custom cake, linens, bar service, and tables and chairs are included with every package. A professional event manager can help soon-to-be newlyweds choose the right space and services for their wedding.

Cuisine

The Grand Geneva serves exquisite American cuisine for events held at the resort. Menu options include hors d’oeuvres, plated service, family-style, meal stations, late-night snacks, and dessert tables. The resort offers complimentary tastings for up to four guests with all weddings booked.

    perfect wedding venue!

    The Grand Geneva was the perfect location for our July 2020 wedding. The beauty of the Chalet is unmatched and was the perfect unique, rustic, and elegant venue that we wished for. The service the night of the wedding was incredible. Everyone's food was out at the same time and still warm. The bartenders were efficient and knowledgable. Kristi Johnson is an incredible wedding planner. She was easy to communicate with, timely with responses, and kept a high level of professionalism throughout the whole process. She was very flexible with all of our changes due to COVID and always kept a positive attitude. We are so pleased with the Grand Geneva and cannot say enough great things. Highly recommend to anyone searching for a beautiful wedding venue!

    The most amazing team and venue!

    We had to reschedule our wedding three times because of COVID and we were lucky enough to find a completely outdoor space at the Grand Geneva Resort to have our wedding. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. Kristi is a wedding genie and made all our wishes come true. Our guests are raving about how beautiful our wedding was, how delicious the food was and how much fun they had at the resort all weekend long. We are so grateful to have turned a wedding nightmare to a wedding dream. Our venue was the Pavilion and we had our ceremony right across from it near the score board area. Kristi even let me drive into the ceremony on a golf cart! We chose the pan-seared airline chicken breast and the grilled New York strip steak dinner options and our guests are still raving about how good it was. Thank you again, Kristi & Jamie and the Grand Geneva Resort staff for allowing us to create such beautiful memories! We will be back next year for our anniversary!

    Grand Geneva Wedding: A Dream Come True!

    My husband and I give our highest recommendation to Grand Geneva Resort & Spa as a wedding venue. With a June 2020 wedding, the odds were seemingly against us in every way. However, because of Grand Geneva, we miraculously had our dream wedding.

    When planning a wedding in uncertain times, communication is key. Grand Geneva provided us with clear and transparent communication throughout the entire planning process. We were fortunate to work with many talented people, including Heather, Alexandra, and Todd, throughout the planning process. Kristi Johnson, our event manager, was our point person for the final 6 weeks prior to the Big Day.

    Kristi possesses a rare combination of creativity, flexibility, and dedication. Her responses to our calls, texts, and many emails were always prompt, specific, & thorough. She understood our vision, & she worked to make it happen. She coordinated the rental of our ceiling drapes and Chiavari chairs, & she was the person who coordinated all requests that we had concerning food and beverages.

    Grand Geneva's implementation of their "CleanCare Pledge" ensured that the safety of our guests (as well as the people who worked at our wedding) was a top priority. Hand sanitizing stations were plentiful, & all of the staff wore masks and gloves. Grand Geneva opened up the room opposite the Evergreen Ballroom so that our guests could practice social distancing in the Galewood ballroom during the cocktail hour.

    The week before the wedding, Grand Geneva’s staff worked behind the scenes to transform the Evergreen Ballroom. Grand Geneva’s staff even strung twinkle lights & hung escort cards on an arch that we provided. From placing photographs throughout the foyer to ensuring the correct distribution of guest favors and coloring books for children, Grand Geneva’s staff made it easy for my groom and me to simply walk in and enjoy our wedding day.

    My husband & I come from big Italian families, so we had very high expectations for the food & drink. Chef Nelly, Grand Geneva’s Executive Chef, met & exceeded those expectations with our wedding reception dinner. The tasting was delicious, so we were hoping that the food would be as good on a large scale. We were delighted to find that the food was even better on the wedding day. The outcome was spectacular. Jamie, the person in charge of the beverages, ensured that we were able to offer our guests our choice of liquor and wine. We chose the Super Premium bar package, and we are glad that we did. Our guests are still raving about the food and drinks at our wedding. Chef Nelly even made meals for our guests with special dietary preferences or needs, including a vegan gluten-free meal, gluten-free meal, & vegetarian meals.

    Our wedding cake, made by Allie, was beautiful. Our guests had the choice of either chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and filling or vanilla cake with bavarian cream filling and chocolate ganache frosting. Additionally, Miranda made the groom’s cake—a giant armadillo cake that honored my groom's Texas background.

    The Captain of our event, Juan, ensured that our reception was flawless. The level of service was top-notch, and our guests were so impressed with the high level of attentiveness and courtesy.

    Grand Geneva made it possible for us to celebrate our wedding day surrounded by family & friends in a beautiful, safe manner. We give this venue our highest recommendation, and we hope that you have the opportunity to have a Grand Geneva Wedding.
