Discover a New Meaning for 'Palatial'
Nestled between the Swiss Alps and Lake Geneva lies Montreux, the jewel of the Swiss Riviera. Snow-capped peaks behind you, palm trees in front; the beauty of the Belle Époque all around. And presiding over Avenue Claude-Nobs and the waterfront promenade for more than 100 years is Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, a hotel as resplendent as the city it calls home—grand ballrooms, sparkling chandeliers, mouth-watering cuisine and a flair for romance simply unrivaled in the region, if not the continent. Is there a more magical destination in Europe for your dream wedding? Whether they arrive by air, rail, automobile or even a ferry, your guests will find Montreux easily accessible from all corners of Europe.
At the Crossroads of Europe
Whether they arrive by air, rail, automobile or even a ferry, your guests will find Montreux easily accessible from all corners of Europe. That’s partly why the Swiss Riviera has enticed travelers for centuries. Of course, being uniquely situated between Germany, France and Italy helps, too, cultures whose music, architecture, cuisine and language have resulted in the mosaic that is contemporary Switzerland. While getting to Montreux is easy and convenient, you might find that leaving it is next to impossible.
Let us Be your Guide
Having spent a century hosting Europe’s best and most beautiful, we’ve developed a fine sense of what a truly grand wedding requires: colour schemes for flowers that perfectly complement the dress; lavish table settings and décor to heighten the senses; a cake that tastes as magnificent as it looks. That’s why we have a dedicated wedding planner and a team of experts on hand to guide you through the journey, all the way from the engagement party to the vows. You’ll have enough to think about ahead of your big day—why not leave the details to us?
An Unforgettable Ceremony
We can’t imagine a destination more picturesque than Montreux. So when it comes to deciding where to hold the ceremony, very choice is the right choice. Consider sharing your vows outdoors on our expansive front lawn, with stunning views of the Alps, Lake Geneva and the hotel acting as the backdrop to your matrimonial moment. Or perhaps you’d prefer a more intimate space, such as La Coupole or our Salle des Fêtes, which reflects the city’s age-old love affair with all things musical. Of course, your wedding planner can also recommend a number of local places of worship, as well as officiants, décor, seating arrangements and everything else needed to make your ceremony picture-perfect.
Let the Celebration Begin!
Once the vows, rings and “I do”s are exchanged, the real celebration begins. No matter the size of your wedding, we have a venue that will be ideally suited to your needs—we can easily accommodate any party, from an intimate gathering with your family in La Coupole to an extravagant gala in the 800-square-metre (8,590-squarefoot) Léman ballroom, filled with everyone who matters most to you. Our event staff will guarantee that the reception is seamless, from the first toast to the last dance, and that every speech gets the attention it deserves. So when it’s time to turn up the music, all you’ll have to be concerned about is your uncle’s dancing.
Cuisine they will Remember
While the food at many weddings is an afterthought, at Fairmont Le Montreux Palace it takes centre stage. Our menus focus on premium local ingredients in everything from the amuse-bouches to the entrées, and our chefs are always happy to create a custom cake that your guests will be talking about for years. Our sommelier will help you select the perfect vintage or marking your nuptials, and leave it to our mixologists to prepare bespoke cocktails that capture the essence of your relationship—and get the party started.
