There’s many beautiful places to say “I do” in Vancouver – from waterfront community centers to the most opulent hotels.
Public outdoor venues can be booked for ceremonies of guests over 50 – Stanley Park has four different but equally beautiful spots: the Rose Garden, oceanfront Brockton Point, Ferguson Point with its English Bay beach view and Spanish Banks, which boasts ocean and mountain backdrops. Because Vancouver’s weather is unpredictable, indoor gardens are also incredibly popular. Choices include the lush Bloedel Conservatory at Queen Elizabeth Park and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden, a traditional rendering of a Ming Dynasty-era outdoor space (the first of its kind in North America) in the heart of Chinatown.
And after the vows comes the party! Vancouver has many esthetically pleasing community centers that book up quickly as wedding venues, include Yaletown’s brick Roundhouse Community Centre (guests will love taking a phot with the cool and classic train in the lobby) and the modern Creekside Community Recreation Centre at Olympic Village.
Posh wedding spots include the city’s luxury hotels: Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Shangri-La Vancouver, Sutton Place and the Four Seasons all have dedicated wedding venues and on-staff planners who can take care of all the details big and small.
