Many of the restaurants and hotels cater their own venues. If you have a venue that does not offer catering, there are private function caterers to choose from. Not to mention the gorgeous cake, cupcakes or treats your guests will love.
With each year, planning a wedding in Fernie, BC and the surrounding area has grown in popularity, even with the challenges we have faced the last two years. Couples have adapted to the restrictions, as they have fluctuated and evolved, by focusing on what works and what is important to them. We have seen many elopements, intimate celebrations with family or a group of friends, and also larger outdoor gatherings for the more traditional affair.
What has also grown is the wedding season! Each season in the Elk Valley has something unique to offer a newly engaged couple and the guests they plan to host. Whether you are looking for the promise and greenery of spring, the lush and hot days of summer, the mosaic of colours in fall, or the classic white appeal of a winter wonderland, it is all available right here, in this picturesque little mountain town.
And that’s just the outdoor setting. Each and every year, more is on offer when it comes to hosting weddings of all sizes and styles. With a growing number of people choosing this southeast corner of BC, it’s not surprising that we have seen numerous businesses created, grow or evolve to accommodate the increase in demand.
From the one-of-a-kind detail you can only find from a local artisan, to the notable experience of dancing to one of Canada’s favourite bands. From an intimate setting under the stars, to an elegant gathering in a hotel in the mountains. To the easy going feel of a cocktail style evening, to the more formal seated affair. It is all at your fingertips in Fernie, and this extends to every element of your wedding.
This guide will help you to navigate the intricate details of planning a wedding, from budget to timeline to tips and trends. We also hope these wedding stories help inspire your journey, and that you get a feel for the Fernie–specific products and services available that can really help to make your day stand out.
