1. Vision and budget
Before diving into the details, take the time to discuss the vision you have for your wedding. What are your favorite colors? Would you like a theme based on your shared passion (travel, photography, Vikings, Japan...) Would you prefer an intimate ceremony or a grand celebration? In a modern hall or an old barn? Write down all your ideas, search for reference images on Pinterest or Instagram.
Then establish a realistic budget in relation to your desires: feeding thirty people doesn't cost the same as eighty! The number of guests will play a decisive role in your budget, as you'll need to adapt the size of the venue, the number of meals and guest gifts. Other important budget items are :
2. The ceremony
This is an extremely personal choice. While some opt for a combination of town hall and place of worship, atheists or agnostics may prefer a so-called lay ceremony.
A lay ceremony can be prepared with the help of a professional officiant, or with family and friends, choosing the officiant from among those closest to you. The advantage of this ceremony is that you can fully personalize it, and choose a completely unique venue to celebrate it.
At Les Endroits we have a space called "Le Chalet". In this warm and cozy space, we can arrange between fifty and seventy chairs for your guests. You can also sit on our lawns lined with flowerbeds. The Chalet and our green spaces surround our contemporary and elegant terrace, where you can gather your guests for the vin d'honneur at the end of the ceremony. It's also here that you can take your traditional solo, duo or group photos.
3. The reception venue
At Les Endroits, you can choose to hold just your vin d'honneur, or the entire reception. Our large, modular Eplatures hall can accommodate up to 200 seated guests. It has a stage for your DJ or band, an overhead projector and all the necessary furniture (including chair covers).
Privatization of the room is offered when you organize your dinner with us.
Our room has been completely renovated. Its high ceilings and contemporary architecture will appeal to lovers of minimalist lines and wood. You'll have all the space you need to welcome your guests and dance the night away.
From aperitif to dessert, chef Stephan Vogt and his brigade will prepare a refined menu to suit your budget and tastes. Tastings are of course possible before defining the menu. We can adapt dishes to suit your tastes, food allergies or special dietary requirements.
5. Decoration and flowers
We provide tablecloths, white napkins, candles and silver cutlery. Of course, your florist or decorator will be able to install his or her own bouquets and arrangements. We do our utmost to make your wedding an unforgettable event.
6. Preparing the bride and groom
You'll choose the dress and suit that will enchant you from one of the many wedding professionals in the area. And don't forget to book your beauty and wellness appointments.
Our hotel's Spa By Cinq Mondes will welcome you for a complete beauty treatment, including make-up for the big day. In the "beauty & wedding" section, discover all our offers. Why not treat yourself to a romantic massage ritual on the eve of the big day to relieve the stress?
7. The wedding night
After the hustle and bustle of the festivities, it's time for your couple to relax. You'll find the serenity and peace you need in one of our comfortable, modern rooms. At your request, we can add a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of flowers or rose petals.
Our Suite & Spa, for example, offers a private bath - sauna - hammam area. Perhaps you'd prefer to swim in one of our pools, or relax in our relaxation room with a glass of prosecco in hand. Your witnesses or relatives may enjoy sleeping with us on the wedding night, so that you can enjoy the intimacy of a small group at lunchtime or breakfast.
There are as many weddings as there are couples. At Les Endroits, we've made a specialty of these grandiose receptions. Above all, we love taking care of our brides and grooms, listening to their needs to make their event the most beautiful and magical of all.
