    Couldn’t have picked a better spot!

    The staff made us feel so taken care of on the weekend of our wedding. The ceremony spot was so lovely and picturesque! And the food at the reception…it. Was. Delicious.

    Corona Bride- Review of how venue handled it

    My wedding was originally planned for April 4th 2020. We booked this venue in Oct 2018 and ultimately had to cancel our big day. We chose this venue because we could have a ceremony & reception indoors (during winter) without having to flip the room from ceremony to reception. The tour we were given of the resort was great, even got to see the hotel rooms. These rooms are more condo style so great for families & people coming for extended stays. The venue was very budget friendly. Our entire costs minus the bar for 94 people would of been about 12k.

    Lauren handled the corona virus with grace, she was in contact the whole time. I do not believe that her management team put together a contingency plan for her to communicate as soon as the virus broke out. BUT on Tuesday March 17th when things were getting worse & I had to cancel Lauren was gracious and understanding. I wish we had the energy to replan the big day again because all of our friends & family would of loved this place. (we decided to elope at a cabin in the woods)

    Thank you for everything you have done. Your team is amazing & you did a great job answering all of my annoying questions! I am very sad I did not end up having the big day I originally planned.

    Banff Rocky Mountain Resort's reply:

    Wow this review made my day bright in the midst of these crazy days. Congratulations to you both on your recent Elopement.

    Although you may not have the energy now to plan a wedding again for another date we would love if we could help you celebrate your 1st anniversary and this time with your family and friends. If this is something we could help with please do reach out. Please stay safe and healthy and we hope to see you again at the resort real soon.

    Great Experience

    We had our wedding of about 115 guests here at the Banff RMR on June 2, 2018 and we had 100% an extremely positive experience. We have to credit Lauren Fisher for most of this. She was our contact throughout and was amazing to work with. Always responded in a timely manner and kept us on track and organized with everything we needed to prepare. The day before the wedding we met with Lauren and the rest of the team to go over the day’s plan and ensure everything was in line. I thought this was very helpful and put our minds at ease. The venue was perfect for the kind of wedding we wanted. Ceremony outside and reception in the Grey Wolf Room. Food and drinks were great. They accommodated what we wanted for a specialty drink- which was excellent. Staff were incredible- so helpful and I felt went above and beyond for us. We were so happy and were able to relax and enjoy our day because of all the help we received.

    Banff Rocky Mountain Resort's reply:

    Dear Jodi & DR,

    Firstly thank you for the fabulous review and secondly I wanted to say it was so much fun working with you both to make your dream wedding a reality. Wishing you both all the happiness in the World and we do look forward to welcoming you back to Banff Rocky Mt Resort.

    Best wishes

    Stressless Wedding

    This was not our first choice but I am so glad we went with BRMR!! Lauren was very knowledgeable about everything during our showing of the venue the first time we saw it. She was friendly and genuine. Very helpful. She made sure planning at the venue was as stress free as possible. The staff at BRMR were also friendly and helpful.
    All of our guests enjoyed their time here as well.
    We would definitely go back again!

    Banff Rocky Mountain Resort's reply:

    Hi Brenna,
    Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so pleased to hear your wedding was stress free. Wishing you both a very happy future and we look forward to welcoming you back to Banff Rocky Mt Resort.
    Warm Regards

    The venue was fantastic. Had the ceremony and reception at the same venue, and the service was perfect. Staff were incredibly helpful and flexible to last minute changes. Worked with staff well ahead of the big day and created an elaborate foolproof plan. Food was terrific and accommodations were top notch. The best place in Banff to get married for a great price. Our wedding had 85 guests and we felt the venue was the perfect size for everyone. Thank you so much for the perfect day! Couldn't have asked for better!

    Banff Rocky Mountain Resort's reply:

    Dear Mr & Mrs Music,
    Thank you for the great review. We are so pleased to hear everything from the venue, accommodation to the food was perfect. Wishing you both a future filled with happiness. Lauren Fisher
