Finding the right wedding venue in Jasper National Park takes a lot of time and research and can often be one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding. You need to make sure that your venue ticks all the right boxes before you make a final decision.
A great place to start is with the help of My Jasper Wedding– a new co-op in Jasper that is full of local wedding experts wanting to help plan your perfect wedding day:
Your venue will influence your budget as well as the atmosphere on the day so before you sign on the dotted line, below are three important things to consider before you decide on selecting a wedding venue.
- Venue size
Look at how many people you’re planning to invite to your wedding versus the number of people the venue can comfortably cater for. A crowded reception can be quite uncomfortable and if a venue is too large, it can affect the atmosphere and the overall look and feel. Put an initial guest list together before you start venue shopping so that you can make a better decision. Both The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge and The Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre can host large weddings, while Pyramid Lake Lodge and the Jasper Inn or The Crimson Hotel are better suited for more intimate weddings.

2. Alcohol and drinks are a big part of your wedding so it’s important to find out whether you can bring your own alcohol and what the costs are or if the wedding venue will supply the drinks. Since you will also need a licensed bartender to serve alcohol, find out whether the venue can assist with this so that you can factor those costs into your final budget.
Prefered Vendors in Jasper
3. You’re going to be working with several different vendors in the time leading up to and on your wedding day. Many venues will recommend the best local vendors that have experience working in Jasper. Find out about this before you make a decision on who you are going to hire. If they do work with specific vendors, make sure that you’re happy with their experience, style, personality, and pricing. When a venue works with preferred vendors, it does mean they’re confident in their experience and ability to deliver but it’s more important for you to choose vendors that fit in with your budget and overall preferences.
There are many different factors to consider when choosing the perfect wedding venue but make sure that it’s a space that speaks to your personalities and style as a couple.
