There is something magical about Montreal no matter what season it is.
There is no doubt that Quebec City continues to amaze its visitors with its glorious urban life and multinational cultural heritage, making it the jewel of Quebec and the second largest city in the entire country.
But what about weddings? Let’s see if there are any limitations to this fantastic city in terms of venues per season!
Until the dawn of time, Montreal will continue to provide postcard-worthy sights. Among it’s many charms is the city’s beautiful winter scenery, which never fails to awe it’s inhabitants.
The weather in Montreal is not known for its cold breezes and slightly cooler temperatures, but for its icy snow storms and freezing temperatures.
But how do the icy colds affect weddings? Does below-freezing weather mean no weddings this season? Of course not! You’ll simply need an indoor setting and timely photoshoots for capturing the short window of daylight (and lots of winter coats!).
On some days, the sun starts setting as early as 3 pm, so you’d better be quick to get those photos.
Cold- proof indoor settings unfortunately exclude lots of venue types. Farms,wineries, barns,golf clubs, venues by rivers, ports and other bodies of water, etc.
But don’t get worried! There are hundreds of hotels, banquet halls, chic restraunts, vintage galleries, artsy spaces, antic movie theatres or even science centers!
Montreal is more than happy to assist you. The possibilities are quite possibly endless. Furthermore, winter is the cheapest and most available time to plan a wedding.
It’s not surprising that the fall is a peak season for many, as it’s a symbol of the entire country. In addition, across Canada, Montreal is the last place you can catch the gorgeous fall foliage.
In terms of weather, November is quite a wildcard, so September and October are the real stars. We recommend you avoid venues without any indoor setting towards the end of October as the weather is getting chilly enough for it.
Make the most of the gorgeous autumn foliage by choosing venues that are partly outdoors. Also, don’t forget that autumn is harvest season, which means you shouldn’t forget about wineries and vineyards during that time of year. If you’re looking for a rustic essence, you’d be well served by barns and farms.
There are also many woody areas and mountains to be found in Montreal, so be sure to take advantage of them. You might catch great venues for a middle-of-the wilderness styleof wedding.
In summer, Montreal makes the most of its hot season with festivals, international events, lively streets, and firework competitions.
During the hot summer months, Montreal is more than ready to get a little more lively than ever before as the weather gets hotter and hotter.
If you’re interested in investing, Montreal offers a variety of wonderful estates and chateaus with a French influence.
A wedding at one of these majestic architectural pieces often pairs up with a private lake or coast, which will certainly make for a memorable wedding setting. You cannot miss this opportunity if you enjoy old classic aesthetics.
The city of Montreal is also close to a few beaches and surrounded by rivers. In conclusion, if you are looking for outdoor venues to cool off during a hot summer day, Montreal is the right place for you.
For the unusual couple, a street wedding is another great option, as they are becoming more popular every day. Montreal’s urban central is the perfect place for your chic and unique celebration.
While some stormy weather is predicted at the start of spring, Montreal will start brightening up by the end of May as it gets ready to welcome the spring season and welcome nature’s renewal.
Having endured a harsh winter, it is only natural that everyone likes to celebrate, so it is no wonder that Montreal is a very popular wedding destination during the spring months.
Our recommendation is to choose a venue that is partly indoors and partly outdoors, due to the bright and colorful scenery of Spring, similar to fall. Because of the unpredictable nature of the weather, we need to consider partially indoors and partly indoors venues.
A farm, a barn, a rooftop, an open air gallery… there is a whole world of possibilities waiting for you to discover.
Montreal is an ace, it has everything that a city needs, and that makes it one of the best. Having been ranked the second most populated city in the nation and being one of the most affordable, it will be a delight to celebrate a wedding in this city in any season of the year.
