Winter Weddings in Niagara on the Lake

If your dream wedding takes place in a WINTER WONDERLAND then Niagara on the Lake is the perfect setting for your special day.

Ontario offers many beautiful locations and venues for a summer wedding …. however,  to pull off the perfect Winter Wedding the venue requires a few more of those extra “special touches”.

Look for a venue that is going to suit your Winter Theme.  Perhaps one where you can snuggle up infront of a roaring fireplace…. or your guests can spend an hour or so gathered in the comfort of a hotel lounge with a glass of wine relaxing between the ceremony and reception (while you are taking pictures around the beautiful indoor locations of the building).   The Pillar and Post couldnt be more perfect!  The building is made up of exposed brickwork and is abundant with wooden beams and pillars, creating a warm, rustic / elegant ambiance.  There is a roaring fireplace in the Lobby and the Lounge along with individual fireplaces in many of the guest rooms.

Another important aspect of a Winter Wedding is choosing a venue where your guests dont have to worry about navigating their way home on icy winter roads at the end of the night.  A hotel which boasts beautiful guest rooms, restuarant, lounge and ballroom is the perfect Winter Wedding Venue.  Dont forget, the cost of an overnight stay decreases greatly in the winter months!  A huge bonus for your guests! They may even want to treat themselves by indulging the following day in the spa!!!  (after a fun night of dancing this is a MUST!)  What could be better than a couples massage, it’s the perfect ending to a wonderful weekend away built around the romance of a wedding.

Maybe we could even tempt you with a soak in the outdoor hot springs?

For a distinguished and elegant  winter affair, you may want to consider the Queens Landing Hotel.   This stately geaorgian style mansion makes a statement like no other.  Can you imagine a wedding glittering with silver and gold sparkly accents?  The Queens Landing oozes charm and elegance.  I imagine a blacktie affair… Perhaps even a New Years Eve Wedding Celebration?!

For the Bride who wants Winter Bling, this certainly is the place!!!

But let’s not forget about the Prince of Wales Hotel ….. this Victorian style beauty is a particular favorite of Winter Wedding Couples.

The Ballroom accomodates an intimate gathering of your closest friends and family.  The room has such an elegant warmth to it that you will feel like you have slipped back in time.  If you want to celebrate in Historical Style, this is the place for you!

How about adding some other Special Winter touches?……

  • Arrive by horse and carriage to the reception, complete with a fur throw to keep warm of course!
  • Commission an ice sculpture to decorate the ballroom or perhaps an Ice Martini Louge (mmmm… chocolate-mint martinis would be PERFECT!)
  • Greet your guests with hot chocolate as soon as they come in the ceremony or reception site.

A winter wedding allows you to be festive, playful, and a bit unconventional.  It also offers wonderful savings for you and your guests!

If you are on the hunt for that unique and perfect winter wedding venue we’d love to hear from you!
