Back in 2014 we told you about some of the best wedding venues in Montreal – let’s just say you were pretty spoiled for choice.
From minimal to full-out opulence, intimate to large parties, modern to traditional, and everything in between, the variety of stunning settings for your nuptials gave you a ton of options to tailor-make your perfect day.
But fashions change, and just as you wouldn’t want to wear a wedding dress from two years ago, nor would you want the same recycled venue options for your big day. While some were just too beautiful to leave out, we’ve added plenty of new places to get you in full wedding planning mode.
Once again, wedding planning expert and former Notable Award winner (Best Event Planning) Tania Tassone from Blanc Events was on hand to help us pick out some of the best spots to tie the knot in Montreal.
