EDMONTON, AB--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2014) - For couples planning a wedding in the Edmonton area, there may be plenty of decisions that demand careful consideration, but the venue is decidedly not among them. After all, none of the other Edmonton reception venues can match the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort in terms of size, setting or drama. But if there were ever any hesitation, the hotel's latest wedding promotion -- in which couples can earn a free honeymoon -- puts to rest those lingering doubts.
Unique among hotels in Edmonton, this four-star resort lets guests earn thousands of bonus Marriott Rewards points just for hosting their wedding reception on property. Couples who spend $15,000 on food and beverages, for example, will earn 150,000 points. Those who spend $20,000 will earn 200,000 points, and those who spend $25,000 or more will receive 250,000 points.
The possibilities from there are as diverse as the more than 3,800 Marriott-branded properties at which couples can apply those points. Whether they choose to book a tropical getaway, a golf or ski package or a big-city adventure is up to them. Their points give them the freedom to be the architects of their first dream vacation taken together as a married couple. They can even use the points for spa services, dining or resort activities.
And the honeymoon is just the icing on the wedding cake. As far as Edmonton wedding reception venues go, the Edmonton Marriott at River Cree Resort is unparalleled. Its 35,000 square feet of flexible function space is creatively complemented by Marriott-certified event planners who can coordinate virtually any theme, style or special request.
Thanks to the resort's location on a 49-acre estate, every wedding reception is imbued with an inimitable sense of drama. Accordingly, wedding guests who make a vacation out of the event are in for a treat. As the last word in luxury hotels in Edmonton, this property boasts an on-site casino, three restaurants and indulgent amenities within the 238 guest rooms and 11 suites. Everyone, in other words, will be in the right frame of mind to wish the happy couple well on their big day.
To secure the promotion, couples must book their wedding reception by December 31, 2014 and hold it by December 31, 2015. To learn more about the details, couples can visit www.MarriottCanadaWeddings.com and www.MarriottCanadaMariage.ca.
