The Fine Print

The Fine Print
The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise will only host ceremonies if they are accompanied by a food and beverage function. All function rooms used for dinner events have a minimum food and beverage revenue requirement (this minimum includes all food and beverage consumed including your dinner menu, wine and bar service). Your food and beverage actual spending is subject to 18% service charge and 5% GST. If you do not meet the food and beverage minimum requirement, the difference between your actual spending and the minimum will be charged as a rental, subject to 5% GST.

Cancellation Policy
Please note that our cancellation policies require non-refundable payment of total anticipated revenue figures as per your contract based on the following timeline:

• 0 to 90 days prior to wedding date: 100%
• 91 to 180 days prior to wedding date: 90%
• 181 to 365 days prior to wedding date: 80%
• 366 days or more prior to wedding date: 70%

Ceremony Rehearsal
A service charge of $85.00 + GST applies for the one hour room rental, including the set up. The hotel will set up the front row, aisle chairs and registry signing desk as they will be set for your wedding. We will do our best to accommodate requests to hold your ceremony rehearsal in the same room that your wedding ceremony is booked in, however, we are unable to guarantee space availability, time and location of your ceremony rehearsal until two weeks prior.

Outdoor Ceremonies
The outdoor ceremony includes an indoor weather alternative location which is included in the rental fee. Location of an indoor weather alternative is at the hotel’s discretion and subject to change based on availability. The earliest time for an outdoor ceremony is 11:00 AM. Please allow a minimum of one hour for ceremony set-up. The weather call for an outdoor ceremony will be made with your Wedding Specialist on the day of the ceremony: at 8:00 AM for morning ceremonies and 11:00 AM for afternoon ceremonies, based on weather conditions. Please note that once a weather call is made, the ceremony plans cannot be changed.

Winter Weddings
Winter outdoor weddings will be subject to an additional snow shoveling charge and weather-dependent safety assessments.

Parking & Traffic
Parking is available in the public parking lot (adjacent to the hotel) free of charge on a first-come first-serve basis. We kindly reserve hotel parking for registered in-house guests. Since the Lake Louise area experiences a high volume of day visitors in the summer months and special event weekends, we highly recommend allowing ample time for guests to arrive prior to the ceremony.

Audio Visual Considerations
Audio visual equipment (podium, microphone, lapel microphone, sound systems), can be supplied by our in-house vendor PSAV.

Music Charges
Please note that hotel reserves the right to control the volume of music at all times if guest complaints are registered. All functions with music other than our hotel’s default background music will be subject to the following charges from SOCAN and RE:SOUND. Please note that these are two distinct organizations that represent different groups and rights. As such, fees for both organizations will be charged.
