Wedding inspiration: The Ace Hotel Palm Springs

Categories   Wedding Inspiration

The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs is pretty rad. It’s funky and fun and stylish and has a single mission of ensuring that it’s guests have a really good time. The design details are excellent, food is tasty and inexpensive, and the snow cone cocktails are exceptionally refreshing after a hard day lounging by the pool. Amanda and Kristina have both (separately) made the trip out to the desert to scope out the scene and we’ve made an executive decision that someone needs to get married here. Soon.

On top of all the hipster glory that comes standard with your room rate, it’s pretty much set up for a party due to the following:

1. Photobooth in the lobby (just set your guest book table up next to it, right?)
2. The Amigo Room, a vintage roadhouse dive bar complete with inventive cocktails, mexican bank note coated tables, and a real stuffed bear behind the bar. (amazing rehearsal dinner venue)
3. Free bike rentals to be used for the touring of Palm Springs
4. Outdoor fireplace lounges for congregating over cocktails when the sun goes down.
5. A holistic spa with outdoor Yurt treatment rooms
6. And of course Commune, their huge event space that opens onto a pool and patio. Which is where the weddin’ would be.

It’s so great. And the best part is that entire concept is so well designed, you wouldn’t have to do much else in terms of decor for the wedding.

Some Ace-appropriate paper inspiration for your invites, your rock and roll save-the-date posters, and other miscellany:

And our friends at Hammerpress sent over some amazing new invites they’ve been working on for the upcoming wedding season. We’re thinking their stylings would be perfect for a wedding at the Ace:



oooooooooh. They are so good. More from Hammerpress coming up. They’ve sent a bounty of pretty paper to be shared with you dearest readers.

I would love to renew our vows if I could just move CA closer to AL or somehow charter my own 747 for everybody. :)

Love it! The Ace's own paper goods were super inspiring from the room key to the King's Highway menu to mini-bar list.

The Ace is gorgeous! Nice post. I love Palm Springs and it has a vibe that would be excellent for a wedding...especially a vintage inspired one.

Angie Wood on Apr 27, 2009

Great post showing how everything ties together from the theme of the venue! I love to see unique venues and what people do with the their details to make it all come together! There are a ton of weddings here in Colorado and we have a ton of venues! But we have seen a lot of them and so it's fun to see other places; hopefully we will get to do the photography for a wedding at a place like this someday :) Thanks for the awesome post!

Vanessa on Apr 28, 2009

this is actually one of the venues I am looking at for my fall wedding next year!!! it's actually between The Ace and The Riviera. thank you for posting all of the extra wonderful ideas. maybe it will help the hubby-to-be to envision a wedding at this location.

I would also like to suggest "". It is a Palm Springs Hotel located in America’s desert playground with a modern hip hotel, motel and affordable resort. Use promotional code "LKSC" and get 10% discount on reservations.

Becky on Jul 28, 2009

What a great space. I also found a great venue in Oak Glen which is 30 miles west of PS off the 10 freeway. The Orchard Events Center has complete package deals which is the way we are going. It is totally going to help us stay on budget. They are also hosting a wedding giveaway contest. Check them out. These guys are so great.
