Montana has it all when it comes to gorgeous wedding venues with stunning mountain landscapes, scenic lakes, and rumbling rivers. There are so many great venues to choose from and choosing the one that fits your wedding best can be overwhelming. You will want to look at which venues have accommodations, what their maximum capacity is and compare it with your guest count, and know the distance from the airport for your out of town guests. We have combed through our years of experience and reached out to our Montana wedding venue owner friends to get you the most complete information to make your decision.


Montana has some of the best wedding venues in the country. From historical estates with amazing views to ranches speckled with wildflowers and mountain views, there is something for every bride searching for their perfect Montana wedding venue. Choosing your venue will help you move forward with so many other planning steps of your wedding. After you choose your venue, you can narrow down your wedding style, wedding colors, dress, and especially how many guests will be invited. Your venue style will carry over to your wedding day decor. If you choose a rustic western ranch for your wedding, you will be decorating to fit the background. If you choose a more modern or European style venue, you're minimalistic style decor will match.


Venues (and photographers) book up extremely fast, often more than 12 months away from your date. Peak summer Saturdays are often the first to get booked up. If you have the flexibility to choose a Sunday or weekday for your wedding, you will often have more choices on your venue. You can also choose your day to be in the shoulder months of October-May for more open Saturdays.


Since this is also an important time to look for a photographer, we can help you with Top 6 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer. Photographers are one of the first vendors to book up, often booking up to 12 months in advance.
