1. There’s nothing like a romantic winter evening in the city
Picture this: A light dusting of snow surrounds your venue at magic hour (4-5pm) – due to the romantic natural lighting, your photos look perfectly lit. Your guests enter your venue to escape the cold and are welcomed with mulled wine. As the dark night approaches, your reception begins in a beautiful ballroom surrounded by fairy-lights, candles, tea lights and lanterns. It’s magic. Need I say more?
2. It just costs less.
Weddings are expensive. That’s right, we’ve said it. Choosing a date in the winter gives you an opportunity to take advantage of off-season pricing. You know what that means? More budget for the fun stuff like midnight food stations, musical entertainment and of course, booze!
3. Goodbye Venue Competition!
As one of Toronto’s most popular wedding destinations, we know all about competition for dates from May – September! Saturdays are often booked up a year, if not 2 or 3 in advance. Have the choice of any Saturday you please during the winter months! It’s also a lot easier to find accommodation for out of town guests.
4. Wedding fatigue is real people.
Have you been to 10 weddings this summer? How did you feel around the 8th? or 9th? Wedding fatigue for guests is a real thing. With each one, the weddings become less special and memorable, blending into one. Getting hitched in the winter, it’s unlikely your guests will have been to a do in a while and they’ll be ready to celebrate!
5. Honeymoon in the tropics
What better way to end your big day than a direct flight from Toronto’s snowy core to the tropics? Case made.
