Canada Wedding Packages

Wedding Packages in Canada

Destination wedding packages in Canada are a la carte, meaning you can build them from scratch to meet your exact vision. Since Canada doesn't offer all-inclusive wedding packages at their hotels, you'll likely have to find each vendor separately (i.e. officiant, florist, DJ, caterer, photographer, etc.) Each hotel will offer its own unique package and preferred vendor list, so it's best to work closely with your Certified Destination Wedding Specialist when creating your wedding package.

Getting married in Canada may sound dreamy, but it comes with a few challenges:

  • Hotels in Canada are EP (European Plan), so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost
  • Wedding packages in Canada are not all-inclusive, so you'll have to hire each vendor individually (i.e. florist, wedding planner, caterer, photographer, etc.)
  • The overall cost of a destination wedding in Canada will likely be more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
