Tip #1 for Planning a Canadian Rocky Mountain Destination Wedding in Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and Jasper
Start your wedding planning early. If you can, plan to book your venue at least one year in advance. The mountains are a popular tourist destination especially in the summer and venues book up fast. If you’ve been dreaming of a wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel your entire adult life, you’ll be really disappointed if you wait too long and find your wedding date is already booked solid! Remember what happened to Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) in Bride Wars and their dreams of having a spring wedding at the Plaza Hotel in New York? I’m not saying that will happen to you, but why take chances? Planning ahead may also ensure you get the best rates at condos and hotels.
While you’re at it you should also book your photographer, wedding planner, marriage commissioner and dj well in advance if you can. Most weddings are on the weekend and popular vendors fill their available wedding dates quickly. Don’t be disappointed, plan early!
