With highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, it’s no wonder so many couples choose to get married in the summer high up in the Pocono Mountains. It’s the ideal romantic setting that fosters connection, love, and a healthy dose of outdoor adventure.

When planning a wedding, there are many benefits to going the traditional route of having an indoor wedding reception. This doesn’t mean the ceremony has to be indoors as well. While couples come to Skytop Lodge for the beautiful scenery, our indoor ballrooms are just as stunning.

If you’re considering an indoor wedding reception this summer, here are some ideas for making it grand.

  1. Embrace the setting in your centerpieces. A fun way to incorporate the mountain scenery and the summer season is to incorporate fun details in your centerpieces. Sunflowers usually bloom in late Summer in the Poconos!
  2. Choose a theme. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when choosing decor. Having a theme will help you narrow down your options and create a cohesive look. Popular themes include summer garden, enchanted forest, and traditional white.
  3. Specialize the bride and groom place setting. Whether it’s Mr. and Mrs. silverware or a “just married” sign on the backs of the chairs, adding details for the bride and groom will make them stand out and feel special.
  4. Sketch out your plan for flowers. On your wedding day, having a visual plan is helpful so everyone is on the same page about where and how the flowers will be displayed.
  5. Consider place cards. When guests feel comfortable, they have more fun! Having a designated seat for each guest is a seamless way to get everyone seated for dinner without any awkward encounters.  

With 5,500 acres of enchantment, Skytop Lodge is one of the most coveted wedding destinations in the Northeast and offers everything you need to celebrate your special day, including a wide range of memorable settings and amenities at our luxury hotel in the Poconos.
