Destination wedding venue locations: Yellowstone/Tetons?

I live in Florida and just got engaged.  We are trying to plan an Aug wedding and would love to do a destination wedding up by yellowstone/tetons.  Does anyone know any good venues that may not be in the national park? It is my fiance's favorite place in the world (he's been lucky enough to travel) and he love's it there!   I received an email from Jackson Lake Lodge and it is PRICEY; does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for your help :)

    Hi there. Welcome to the board! You might look into using some national forest land - there are places out here that have great views but are not in the national park. You could also check with some local ranches. Also, some people have found that Dornan's is more affordable and includes a lot of things you'd normally pay extra for. 

    Scroll down on the board and read some of GinaDog's recommendations, as she traveled out here and put all of her findings in a thread called "Jackson Venue Shopping." Good luck!

    Yes!  I have a spreadsheet of all the affordable places in Jackson/Teton Village plus tons of PDFs and brochures if you are interested.  I visited the first 4 in person last month.

    Whats your budget?  How many guests?  Formal, or more causal?  Do you want views of the Tetons?

    In order of most affordable for 50 people (my guestimate):  I also have costs if you want.

    Dornans - Pavilion and Fire pad
    Teton Mountain Lodge - the Teton Room
    Snake River Lodge & Spa - the Apres Vous deck and room
    Wort Hotel - Jackson Room
    Teton Pines Country Club - The Pines room
    Jackson Golf and Tennis - Dining Terrace

    In Yellowstone, it's all a park so you're mercy to outrageous prices.

    Then there are some restaurants near/in Jackson that can have receptions in their private - semiprivate rooms for much less.

    I am doing budget stuff tomorrow with the families; so I'm not quite sure yet. But I was thinking about 100; semi-formal/comfortable. I would love a view of the tetons since that is why we are heading out that way for the wedding.  If you do not mind sending me the PDF that would be wonderful!  my email is [email protected]; Thank you so much!
