There are few destinations for Saskatchewan weddings that offer amenities to compare with Cedar Lodge.
Pictured above is a more formal wedding atmosphere, but casual receptions are also in order … it's YOUR day … YOU choose.
Amenities include various flowering plants and foliage which can be moved around the room to suit your needs for a small fee ($100), a room width balcony above the dining room for a splendid entrance by the bridal party, as well as a wrap around deck overlooking Blackstrap Lake, suitable depending on the weather for the receiving line and/or casual seating before and after the ceremonies.
You may be considering a wedding planner; however, we have expert opinions and advice to assist you with your most special day. We can offer you the time and consideration to attend to all of the minor details likely saving you some of the cost since we are already on site, (time saved in driving to and from the facility a number of times) but if you have a special wedding planner in mind, we have no problem working with them also. A small charge will accompany working with the planner due to the extra time involved. We have been catering to some of the finest weddings for miles around since 1997; same staff, same hospitality, same service … serving always ‘with a spirit of excellence' … our desire is to leave no stone unturned to provide you with all that is needed for a memory that will happily last a lifetime.
WRAPAROUND DECK OFF THE GREAT ROOM, OVERLOOKING THE LAKE …
is a fabulous place (weather permitting) for the bride and groom's receiving line. Absolutely beautiful!
Come in the day before to more specifically set up seating arrangements, table settings, entrances, welcome desk, gift area and any other ideas that you may have.

Outdoors for Perfect Summer Saskatchewan Weddings
If you are wanting to have your ceremony outside, there are a number of things to be considered. Obviously, the first will be the weather. The day may be perfect for your setting; however, if it is not, you will need to be prepared to move everyone indoors. In that case, preparations must be made in this eventuality. This will involve the normal cost for set up with the ability to move from outdoors to inside in case of a sudden change in the weather. Often the day is perfect and unusual winds will blow in from out of nowhere or it may suddenly become rainy. Below are a couple of examples of outdoor weddings one a little more casual than the next, both showing the lake in the background. This bluff is situated just east of Cedar Lodge and situated high above the lake – this is the most often chosen spot; however there is a lovely park as you approach Cedar Lodge by car and which is a perfect ‘picture taking spot,' more sheltered and shaded, which can also double as a most pleasant backdrop for your outdoor Saskatchewan wedding.
Make Your Own Outdoor Venue / The Sky's the Limit
Here the groom hand built a framework for the ceremony, very unique … a setting with doors for his bride to enter before coming down the aisle and then another framework to look out onto the lake. On a perfect day in October, with not a cloud in the sky, the ceremony was gorgeous!
Inside the bride's wishes were honored with Flowers by Fred who did a remarkable job of ‘big' and ‘splashy' with items of the brides choosing. The setting was magical and the flamboyant decor spectacular.

Booking Early, Deposits, Refund Policy
As you likely already know, many facilities are booked years in advance for the perfect wedding location. Summer weddings are most popular and long weekends are at the top of everyone's list for a celebratory occasion. If you are thinking of a summer wedding this year, or in the next two years, it is wise to call quickly to see if any of the dates that you are looking at are still available.
A 30% deposit of the approximate total will be required to secure your date. In addition to the 30% deposit to confirm your booking, a $500 damage deposit is requested on confirmation, which will be deducted from the final balance after any damages which may have occurred are assessed.
Deposits will be returned on cancellation if enough notice is given to rebook the dates you had set aside. If we are unable to rebook, your deposit will be forfeited. The good news is that as long as you give sufficient notice, we will most likely rebook. The turnaround time for your refund AFTER we have rebooked your dates is 30-90 days. We find this return policy more than generous as many venues expect the deposit to be forfeited whether the dates are rebooked or not.
