Planning Your Wedding - Part 1
Posted in Calgary
|   November 26, 2019

It’s official. It’s happened. You’re…engaged! Congratulations from The Wedding Fair team!

Your wedding is the biggest and most complex celebration you will ever plan. It can seem daunting and you already feel a little overwhelmed. Believe us, we understand those feelings! Here at The Wedding Fair we have tons of tips and tricks, and the most experienced professionals in the industry to help you create your special day - your way.

So, where do you begin? Let’s start with the essentials: you may need a dress/suit, guest list, invitations, a venue or two, a caterer, gift registry, a photographer, planner, bridal shower, bachelor party, gift opening, engagement photos, and let’s not forget the cake! It may sound like a lot, but we have you covered. Take it one step at a time, and soon enough you’ll be standing in front of your friends and family in the most perfect celebration you could dream up.

Step One: It all starts with estimating a date and place. Narrow it down to a season, are you wishing for a winter wonderland or summer sunset ceremony? Do you want to be surrounded by fall foliage or spring meadows? Once you’ve got an idea of your when, start to think of the where; maybe a church or mountain ceremony? Or a lively urban ballroom right downtown?


At The Wedding Fair you will meet many local and destination venues. The availability of a venue will dictate the true date for your wedding. Come with an open mind, and a time frame that suits you and your style.  

Calgary has some beautiful venues to host your wedding right here at home. From the beautiful Calgary Shrine Event Centre, to Heritage Park to The Lake House, there’s a wide variety of options and you can talk with all of them at The Wedding Fair to find one that fits your wedding style.

We’ll also bring some venues from a little further from home. If you’d like to have your ceremony a little further south, or west – some of our incredible exhibitors from BC, Waterton and Montana would love to talk to you about how they can help make your big day perfect!


And if you want to just get away from the hustle and bustle of real life, consider a destination wedding. Weddings by Escapes and Rock-It Travel will be there to aid in the planning to make sure everything goes off without a hitch!

Take advantage of the opportunity to speak with all our venue exhibitors face to face. The Wedding Fair provides the one-stop-shop to discuss your many options and find the right fit for you.
