The “Petite” Wedding Craze at Stowe Mountain Lodge

You’re recently engaged and have acquired a truly fantastic engagement ring on your left hand…..congratulations!  And now you want to elope...or do you?

You and your fiancé have talked about what you want and eloping is really just more “you” then the traditional wedding. Maybe you just weren’t one of “those girls” who has been dreaming of her wedding since she was old enough to dress her Barbies in sparkly white gowns and wear your pillow case as a veil. Or perhaps being the center of attention makes you break out in hives and the thought of being surrounded by 200 of your “closest” family and friends makes you nauseous. Completely normal! There’s just one problem…..the traditional wedding is what your parents have been dreaming of for you and they’re heartbroken when you tell them that Vegas or the local court house followed by dinner at your favorite restaurant is more your speed.

Enter the “Petite Wedding” - the most recent craze to hit the Vermont Wedding Scene and affectionately known as at Stowe Mountain Lodge as “The Wedding Compromise.” Petite Weddings are just like eloping, only with a few more of your friends and family in attendance for an amazing weekend somewhere fabulous!

Stowe Mountain Lodge has recently debuted the “Petite Wedding Package,” designed to be one stop shopping experience for the couple looking for the ease and stress-free experience of eloping, only with a few more people around to help celebrate. Available year round, and with three different packages designed to suite all kinds, this is the simple wedding you have been searching for!

Each package includes:

  • A maximum of 40 guests
  • Use of one of three different ceremony locations
  • Complimentary use of our Reception Space for a cocktail reception and dinner
  • Menu Package Including: 5-Hour Premium Bar, 4 Passed Hors d’oeuvres, Artisan Cheese Display, Two-Course Plated Dinner Menu and S’mores
