Where will you forever remember tying the knot? Indoors? Outdoors? Within the city? A far away land? An early decision to make in your wedding plan is the venue.

Many venues are booked far in advance, which may affect the actual date of your wedding, so it’s important to sort this out early. Once the location for your merriment is decided, you can begin to move on to other details.

Fort Edmonton Park’s Blatchford Hangar
For larger groups, this historical and wide-open venue is perfect for making your own. Use the outdoor picnic space or one of Fort Edmonton Park’s churches for the ceremony, then head inside for the party. Guests from out of town won’t have to wander far to the charming Hotel Selkirk.

Old Timers’ Cabin
This little gem is tucked away in the heart of the city with almost 360 degree views of the river valley. This municipal historic resource gives a warm cabin feel with its log walls and stone fireplace.

Winspear Centre
With so many choices for areas to rent within Winspear Centre, you’re sure to find one with the feel you’re after. For a light and airy ceremony, consider getting married in the main lobby. Make a grand spectacle of your vows in the beautiful Enmax Hall (main performance chamber).

Magrath Mansion
The centerpiece of Ada Boulevard can be used as the incredible backdrop for your special day. Treat your guests to stunning Georgian architecture, river valley views and a grandiose experience on this lavish, historical property.

Union Bank Inn
Over 100 years ago, the Union Bank of Canada Building made headlines as a modern renaissance addition to “the south side of Jasper Ave.” Today, it’s a boutique hotel and elegant banquet facility in the core of Edmonton’s downtown. This is an upscale venue suitable for one of life’s few extravagant celebrations.
