Unique Wedding Destinations in Canada
May 09, 2016
You finally worked up your nerve and asked her the question. She said ‘yes’. Now she has your ring on her finger and dreams of a unique wedding, one that you both will remember forever. Canada is full of great places to say ‘I do’. Use these suggestions or just use part of them as a springboard for your own ideas.
British Columbia would be a perfect wedding site for those who want a natural wedding. Gorgeous towering redwoods and ferns, pristine lakes, the Canadian Rockies- this is nature at its finest. Imagine wedding photos with Lake Louise behind you and snow-capped mountains off in the distance. Or, have an intimate wedding in a lakeside cabin in front of a fireplace.
You could also choose Vancouver in BC for an urban wedding in the heart of ‘Super, Natural British Columbia’. A gorgeous wedding in a magnificent city filled with places to celebrate afterwards. Say your vows and then enjoy some fine dining with your wedding party afterwards- or go dancing at one of the clubs to celebrate. Then, you and your lover can sneak off for some honeymooning on a beach or in the snow.
If you want a wedding filled with majesty, wonder and breathtaking photo-ops, then Niagara Falls in Ontario is what you need to fulfill your fantasy. Before the wedding, take your bachelor or bachelorette party along the wine trail for a relaxing wine tasting. This will ensure that the pre-wedding jitters are firmly under control. Then select beautiful Niagara Parkway or the falls themselves to choose as a backdrop. Look into her eyes as Niagara River crashes over the edge and plummets downward, sending up a spraying mist. Have your wedding in the winter when the falls are icy and the place is a winter wonderland for even more romantic backdrops.
Declare to the guests that you believe your marriage will last a long time when you get married in Québec’s Old City. The centuries-old buildings behind you will provide a timeless charm to your vows, a charm that says ‘we are going to be together forever’. The Château Frontenac, standing like a sentry over your wedding is an amazing backdrop. You could also choose to arrive in a horse-drawn carriage and get married in the square with historic buildings backing you up at La Place Royale.
For a one-of-a-kind wedding, have your event at the Hôtel de Glace. Here, once a year a hotel is carved from ice. Inside, there is a chapel, a bar and guest rooms complete with beds of ice. You can soak in a hot tub outside under the stars and then run back to your room and snuggle together under reindeer hides. The hotel melts away in the spring, to be replaced by a new one next year. Your wedding photos will never be reproduced with the same hotel. Now that is a unique wedding!
