Small Wedding Venues, Canmore

Small wedding venues have been popular for many years but definitely more so in 2020 and now into 2021 for obvious reasons.  

Couples are unsure when COVID restrictions will lift but still want to celebrate their day and feel that a smaller gathering is the way forward for this year. 

Also couples are potentially finding themselves in a different financial situation than pre-2020.

One thing that stands out is that love will conquer and looking for a small wedding venue could be a great option for 2021.

Top 5 reasons to choose a small wedding venue


  • Smaller wedding venues tend to cost less than larger ones. If your budget is lower in 2021 than you expected, a smaller guest count and therefore smaller venue, could be a great option


  • Intimacy is all around! While a larger gathering has advantages for sure, a small guest count means you can spend more time with your guests and create beautiful memories.  Your smaller Canmore wedding can mean that both sides of your families get to meet and spend important time together.


  • Awesome food options! Less guests may mean you can choose a higher priced menu than your original plan.  This means you can really treat your guests and offer them something special.  You may also be able to reallocate your budget for extra entertainment such as a DJ or band.  This could create the opportunity to focus on some items that perhaps were not in your original budget


  • On the opposite side of the budget equation, a smaller venue, can also mean a simpler wedding. Less guests means less stress w
