Glacier National Park Wedding Locations

Updated: Apr 5

There are so many stunning Glacier National Park wedding locations to pick from. Googling can result in an overwhelming number of epic wedding spots within the park, but which site is best for you? Will it accommodate your large group? Does it satisfy the “off-the-beaten-path” vibe you’re looking for? The entire park is amazing and the wedding options are endless, so we’ve put together a shortlist of what we consider to be the best places to get married in West Glacier. After you’ve narrowed it down, we’d love to help you put together all of the details to make sure your day is everything you dreamed it would be!


*** 2021 update. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Glacier has set a limit of a total of 30 people for all weddings (please keep in mind that most wedding locations within Glacier have a limit of 15 people). This limit will be in effect throughout 2021. Total group size cannot exceed 30 people at any location, including the wedding couple, guests, officiants, photographers, videographers and planners. For more information, please visit the GNP Wedding Website.
