Wedding-FACTS

faqs

When can we get married?
During our summer season from July to the end of September, the hotel and hut are open from Thursday to Sunday. A booking of hotel rooms is obligatory. We will be happy to organize your event. 

Why can we not get married here in winter?

Since winter is our peak season and guests can reach the Wedelhütte only with skis by chair lift or gondola, wedding arrangements are unfortunately not possible. We will be happy to reserve a table for you during the day in our gourmet lounge, where you will be pampered with culinary treats! And for more "time for two", we offer an overnight stay with a candlelight dinner in one of our exclusive suites. 

Is it possible to have a civil ceremony here?
Since September 2016, weddings can also be held at individual locations outside of administrative offices. This is only possible upon arrangement with the registrar and is offered only during office hours. For weddings in the regional museum as well as individual locations, there are federal taxes and administrative fees (around € 100 to € 200) as well as a commission fee of € 350 (according to the commission's scale of charges in the state of Tyrol). Exact fees and other information are available from registrar Markus Wechselberger.

Is the marriage legally valid in Germany?
Yes, the civil marriage is legally valid in Germany.

How many guests can stay overnight in the Wedelhütte? Where can other guests sleep?

We will organize a transfer in the evening as well as a transfer to the breakfast brunch. The Platzlalm in Neuhüttensiedlung or various guesthouses and hotels in the valley (shuttle ca. 40 min.) offer additional accommodation options.  

We would like to provide our own cake/flowers/etc. - is this possible?
Upon arrangement, you are welcome to bring your own wedding cake, flowers, etc.  

Is the transfer of guests included in the price?
The shuttle for the arrival and departure of hotel guests of the Wedelhütte as well as luggage transfer is included. There is an extra charge for other shuttle services. 

Where does the reception take place?
You can have your reception meal/Champagne reception in the wine cellar. Depending on the number of guests, you can dine in the restaurant, in the Wimbachstube, or in the lounge. We recommend the lounge for the party.

Do we pay extra for candles, table decorations…?
No. Standard seating, candles, and table decorations are included. With a room rental (wine cellar, lounge), there will be a charge for extras such as room arrangement, bar tables, chair covers, etc.

Can we use our own music? Do you have playlists for our celebration?
You are welcome to connect your music with a laptop/cell phone in the lounge. We can let a playlist play, or you can bring a DJ with you. We have equipment available for this (rental fee € 200) .
If you are still undecided, we have a few suggestions of musicians, bands, & DJs that have frequently played at the Wedelhütte (if you are interested, please contact them directly):

Can we exclusively rent the Wedelhütte for a weekend (Thursday or Friday to Sunday)? Will other guests still be at the hut on these days?
Of course - if all 11 suites are occupied (capacity: 26 people), the Wedelhütte is available exclusively for your celebration. If you are in the wine cellar or on terrace during the day for your event, you will have them to yourself and will be separate from our day guests. 

Are pets allowed at my wedding celebration?
No. In general, pets are not allowed in the hotel area.  

What is the weather/temperature at this altitude?
Even up here, it is warm in the sun in the summer months but cool in the evening. Remember to bring a warm jacket!  

What else can my guests experience along with the wedding festivities? 
We have 2 suites with their own sauna and whirlpool bathtub or outdoor hot tub. Our wellness area (sauna/ steam sauna/ hot tub/ relaxation area) is accessible to all guests and invites you to relax. In addition, there are many hikes to enjoy up here - whether summit tours or leisurely loop trails, there is something for everyone! 

Can our guests drive their own car to the hut?
This must be arranged with the local farmers. However, an SUV or all-wheel drive vehicle is necessary for this forest road.   

Can we book a flat-rate beverage package?
Yes of course… Simply tell us which drinks you would like to offer your guests. 

What else have I forgotten?
Pure happiness on the summits and a high alpine nature experience are inclusive… Celebrate with your friends and family, and we will take care of the rest!
