When the snow falls, Waterloo Region becomes a Winter Wedding wonderland! This region features unique venues that are perfect for both small, intimate weddings as well as larger celebrations. And during the winter, couples can take advantage of the beautiful outdoor areas at Waterloo Region venues, with their beautiful grounds that provide a pristine snowy backdrop for your special day.
While some couples prefer a traditional summer wedding, there are many perks to choosing Winter for your wedding. Winter naturally calls for the dramatic – richer, deeper décor colours; candles to light up the winter nights; luxurious, warm accessories like faux fur stoles and capes, and even blankets for guests to warm up with and enjoy. And the snow! Winter is when the Waterloo Region’s rural beauty shines, providing breath taking backdrops for unique photo opportunities.
Here are some other reasons to choose a Winter Wedding in Waterloo Region.
Most venues book up quickly during the peak summer and fall wedding months. However, there’s often more availability at sought-after venues in Waterloo Region during winter months, providing couples with more dates to choose from for their wedding. Please note that some of the region’s more unique wedding venues like African Lion Safari and Pine Valley Chalet can only be booked at certain times of the year. We recommend checking with each venue for availability.
TIP: Have your winter wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue, which cuts down on additional driving for your guests.
With Waterloo Region’s farm-to-table food culture, couples will love the variety of food options that are grown right here and can be sourced from local producers year round. Incorporate them into your winter wedding menu in soups and hearty entrees that will be sure to warm your guests. Winter is also a time for comfort foods, so get creative with your wedding menu. Consider wintery touches like a custom Hot Chocolate and S’Mores Bar, or a late-night Mac ‘n Cheese or Poutine Station – they’re a fun touch your guests will love!
While winter snow can provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding, it can also provide a challenge when it comes to driving. Waterloo Region is home to several transportation options that will make getting to and from your wedding easy for your wedding party and guests. Whether it’s a small, intimate group, or a large celebration, these transportation specialists know Waterloo Region and will ensure your guests arrive at your wedding relaxed, and on time!
