Are you dreaming of a magical wedding day that captures the beauty and joy of the winter season? Each year Canmore Alberta transforms into a gorgeous winter wonderland full of snowcapped trees and shimmering peaks while a quiet sense of tranquillity descends upon the region.
Whether you love the colder months for the various activities it brings (skiing, anyone?) or simply can’t get enough of the beauty of the season, the Rocky Mountains are the perfect place to celebrate such an important moment in your lives. If you’re looking to say “I do” surrounded by a natural paradise during your favourite season, Canmore is the perfect backdrop for your special day. Below, we’ll explore a few key tips to help keep your winter wedding cozy and magical for all involved.
Warm Hearts, Cozy Guests
As you might have guessed, one of the biggest questions when it comes to hosting an outdoor wedding in the winter is how to keep everyone warm. While temperatures fluctuate in the Rockies quite frequently, having a game plan can help offset the chill and ensure no one is left feeling uncomfortable. Make sure to have blankets, mitts/gloves, hand warmers, and plenty of warm beverages (like our hot chocolate bar!) readily available and that guests know that your venue is outside so they have a chance to dress appropriately.
Always Have A Back-Up
As with any outdoor ceremony, your wedding is ultimately at the mercy of Mother Nature, regardless of the time of year. While the mountains do have plenty of mild days during the winter, it is not uncommon for blizzards and heavy snowfall to occur without notice. To avoid complications, it’s always best to secure a backup location where possible. That way you’ll always have peace of mind and can focus on the celebration at hand!
Eat, Drink, and Be Married!
After exchanging vows, move things indoors for a reception full of warmth and celebration and be sure to enjoy an incredible meal that leaves everyone feeling satisfied.
