Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise in Alberta are always pretty, and they’re all in the mountains so there is ridiculous amounts of snow.

What about big white in kelowna? I think Whistler may be pricey but big white would be cheaper and they have a really cool outdoor skating rink with snow bank sides too.

Lake Louise is beautiful. 

National Parks may have resorts nearby that you could host a wedding at. 

Ski lodges or chateaus would also be picturesque!

I’m not sure about how affordable it would be, but Fairmont Hot Springs is beautiful!

Ottawa pretty much always has snow, same thing with anything up in the Collingwood area in Ontario.Pretty much anywhere out side the GTA has snow…

I’m a Canadian Rocky Mountain bride — albeit a summer one. I’ve looked into Waterton, Jasper, Banff, and Nordegg in Alberta. Ultimately, we picked our favourite place to escape in BC, which is only 1.5 hours away from Jasper. Valemount is the town where we got engaged last Easter; it was definitely still snowy in March.

We’re getting married at the Best Western in Valemount, BC. No park fees; accomodations are affordable; kid-friendly venue; right next to the bird sanctuary; linens/cutlery; etc are all include in the full-day or half-day hall rental. Holds 150 to 160 guests.

We’ve been to Valemount in the summer and in the winter. It’s really gorgeous in winter, but you may be competing with ski-dooers for lodging.

I didn’t pick any of the national parks because I wasn’t keen on making my guests pay national park fees.

I would probably try locate a ski village in BC — if skiing is a favourite past-time for you and your FH. If you could find an ice hotel, that would be charming and unique!

Haha this is what it looks like where I am in Manitoba so I had to think pretty hard about where I had been that I loved!

I live in Northern Ontario, and there are some beautiful locations around here that are also pretty affordable. If you look in the Muskoka region, there are some absolutely gorgeous resorts!
