For the past few years, we have planned several destination weddings in Montréal where this amazing city was the location chosen for a great celebration.
Sometimes there was a family connection to the city that made it a favoured destination, but sometimes our clients simply fell in love with the idea of getting married in Montréal. That love affair continues as we are planning several destination weddings in Montreal this year and next. Here are a few of the reasons that were given to us by couples who decided they wanted to get married in this beautiful city of ours.
1. Montreal is, in fact, a great city
The natural beauty, the architecture, the culture and the language. These are just a few of the reasons couples give us when they tell us why they love Montreal. Many have been impressed by Mount Royal, one of the largest urban parks in North America designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the same architect responsible for New York’s Central Park. Others cited the St-Lawrence River that gives easy access to the water, especially near the Old Port and Old Montreal.
Almost all our clients felt like they had traveled much further because of the architecture and French culture that more closely resembled Europe than North America!
2. The Canadian Dollar
This factor cannot be ignored as couples and their guests can get a bigger bang for their buck these days because of the favourable exchange rate!
A few couples wanted to have a destination wedding in the Caribbean but decided against the idea due to the potential risk posed by Zika.
4. Proximity and convenience
A short drive from Boston and NYC, a short flight from Chicago and DC, and just a 30 minute drive from the US border, Montreal is easily accessible for most people.
It can be just as easy as a destination wedding at a resort in the Caribbean but even more personalized and a lot more fun planning a wedding with us. From hotel reservations to rehearsal dinners at one of our favourite and highly rated restaurants, we are used to taking care of everything. On top of it all, our couples usually do a little weekend getaway where we arrange tastings, venue visits, decoration mock-ups, etc. For Montreal lovers like us, it’s always such a pleasure to welcome out-of-town couples who decide to get married in Montreal! Are you convinced yet? That’s all the reasons why you should plan a destination weddings in Montréal.
