What to consider when choosing a wedding venue :

Number of guests
One of the most important considerations when choosing a wedding venue is to first identify how many guests you plan to have. Of course, if you are planning on a traditional wedding at a church or religious site, it’s likely you will have space for at least 100 guests. Although this of course depends on whether you have set your sights on a beautiful, quaint chapel or on a grandiose location such as the Notre Dame Basilica!

Montreal Wedding VenuesYou of course have to consider your budget as well. Holding a ceremony at a religious site usually means a donation is appreciated, so you must factor this into your budget. You will need to ask many details about the space you are planning to use – whether there is a cancellation policy, if there are overtime charges, if you can bring in your own alcohol for the reception and the list goes on. If you are extremely tight on budget and have a great outdoor space, you may want to consider holding your ceremony AND wedding reception in your backyard! However, be warned that if you do decide on this option, that our famous Montreal weather may wreak havoc on your special day unless you are prepared with large tents, umbrellas and potentially a change of clothes.

You must also consider whether or not the venue is easily accessible for your guests. If you would like to get married at the top of Mont Royal and most of your guests are elderly, you may want to reconsider, as it will probably be a hassle for them to get there. Don’t forget that travel time will also play a factor in your decision on a place for your ceremony and reception. If you decide on separate, distant locations, guests may get stuck in our infamous traffic on a Montreal bridge or highway. Do make sure that there is adequate parking for all of your guests as well.

What kind of Montreal wedding venues are available?
If you are part of the majority of future married couples planning a wedding, you will be throwing a post-ceremony celebration for all of your guests. There are so many places to choose from in beautiful Montreal. There are halls that can be rented, most coming along with help from an event coordinator who will help you plan your wedding from A to Z. This person will be your right hand man in selecting everything from flowers, linens, food to music. On the other hand, if you enjoy party-planning and think you have the time to make every nitty-gritty decision on your own, you can rent a space and bring in all of your suppliers such as your florist, decorator, musicians, caterer and wait staff. There are plenty of creative locations available in our gorgeous city. To give you a few ideas, there are venues off of the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, where guests must drive on the race track to get to the hall. There’s nothing more original than that! There are also museums that can be rented as well as numerous local restaurants and hotels. Even the Montreal Science Center is available for private parties! Be sure to explore the Internet for local wedding blogs providing suggestions on unique Montreal locations for your big day.
