Every bride and groom want their wedding day to be special, different, something that is uniquely theirs. Destination weddings are a popular way of doing that. But costs can get out of control quickly and it’s a lot to ask your guests to spend extra money to attend your wedding.
But what if you could find a closer destination, one with all of the amenities of a world-class resort, vacation town and travel destination all rolled into one?
5 Reasons to Choose Blue Mountain for Your Destination Wedding
One of the main reasons for having a destination wedding is to get the chance to spend more time with your family and guests. But that can only happen if the destination offers lots of options for getting together. You need great restaurants, activities, excursions, and a beautiful setting as a backdrop for it all.
With that in mind, the Blue Mountain area, including Collingwood and the Blue Mountain Resort, might be one of the best wedding destinations on the world.
The Setting for Your Ceremony
Imagine just the two of you riding a gondola to the top of the Mountain to celebrate your outdoor wedding overlooking Georgian Bay. Or, if you prefer the beaches you get in tropical destinations, you can have that in Blue Mountain too. And if you want a traditional church wedding, Collingwood is home to beautiful churches that are characteristic of small-town Ontario.
Think of the Photo Ops
Imagine a dock, in a bay, at sunset. Or dancing through the streets of Blue Mountain Village. Or the breathtaking scenery at the top of the Mountain. Or the waves crashing on Georgian Bay’s shores. Just the photo ops alone are a great reason to choose Blue Mountain for your wedding.
Dinner & Reception
Your options are almost endless here too. Collingwood and the Blue Mountain area are blessed with lots of great venues, from straightforward banquet halls to full-on conference centres.
Things To Do
This is where Collinwood and Blue Mountain leave other wedding destinations way behind. Golf, zip lining, sailing, winter skiing (yes, you can consider a winter wedding!), water skiing, nightlife, hiking, outdoor concerts, mountain biking, horseback riding, spa retreats, sitting on a patio. And that’s just for starters.
Destination Wedding Without the Destination Wedding Costs
Just a couple hours drive from Toronto and most of Southern Ontario, Collingwood, and Blue Mountain are close by. That means you and your guests don’t have to worry about airfare and most other travel costs.
Last but not least, there are great options for accommodations in Blue Mountain for all your guests. One of the most popular choices is to have your guests share a premium chalet near the Mountain. Equipped with all the amenities, and private rooms for everyone, your guests enjoy a taste of the chalet lifestyle while helping you celebrate your nuptials.
