Top 10 Edmonton Wedding Venues // Edmonton, AB
When planning your wedding, a lot of the time your first decision will be where you will hold the most important event of your life. Do you go for the most popular venue? The most quirky or unique?
The best way to decide what you really want is to do your homework and research trusted sources. Because of this idea, I have compiled a comprehensive list of the top 10 Edmonton wedding venues in Alberta to hopefully make the decision over where to celebrate a lot easier for you!
Fairmont Hotel Macdonald
The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald is a luxurious Edmonton wedding venue that is a top wedding destination, located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, AB. Both charming and elegant, it flaunts its state-of-the-art facility that is steeped in history, being built over 100 years ago. They offer a catering staff that is ready to go above and beyond to achieve your desired ambiance. Be it an intimate or grand wedding, this hotel will certainly deliver.
Check out the post I have with images I have taken at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald for another couple’s wedding here.
Radisson Hotel and Convention Centre Edmonton
With two ballrooms that are capable of accommodating 450 people, the Radisson Hotel makes a grand, large-scale wedding more than possible. With an enchanting and modern feel, this Edmonton wedding venue will not disappoint. Another plus to having your wedding at a hotel is having an on-site place for family and friends to stay after the party has ended.
The Country Lodge
The Country Lodge is an Edmonton wedding venue whose gorgeous grounds are surrounded by green shrubbery and colorful flora. It’s locked in by fields and trees, giving it a great feeling of quiet isolation. It is more comfortable and relatable than perhaps the grandiose hotel ballrooms, which makes it more quaint and desirable to those looking for that. There are many services available, such as a cake-cutting service, a coat-checking service and a promise that the house staff will carefully monitor any deliveries that come.
I have shot a wedding at this wonderful venue, and you can check out some of those fantastic images here to see what another couple did.
Hastings Lake Gardens
If you’re looking for a sweet, intimate location, Hastings Lake Gardens is hard to beat. They have indoor, outdoor and photography locations that are truly one-of-a-kind. It offers a feel of your own private sanctuary. You will have a lovely and romantic ceremony where you can seat up to 200 guests. They offer potted flowers and hanging baskets for a unique feel you will love.
See a ceremony I took photos of at Hastings Lake Gardens here.
Royal Glenora Club
I have taken pictures at the Edmonton wedding venue Royal Glenora Club and all was beautiful (see those images of that wedding here). It is a private club nestled in Edmonton’s river valley, yet is only a quick drive from downtown. They offer an amazing indoor and outdoor banquet space. They celebrate all walks of life, no matter your culture, beliefs or religious preferences. The atmosphere is perfect for the wedding day you are working so hard to plan!
This internationally acclaimed venue is located in one of the largest malls in North America: West Edmonton Mall. This facility hosts the Beverly Hills Ballroom which is an amazing venue for weddings. It is tastefully lit with accent lighting and looks incredible for receptions. You can check out some of the photos from this location below. The staff and cuisine is equally excellent thus ensuring that your reception will be perfect when hosted here.
The Oasis Centre
This is one of the most inspiring of the Edmonton wedding venues. The Oasis Centre will provide an elegant experience where you can really celebrate your declaration of love. It has even won “Best Overall Wedding Venue” in Alberta, a hefty title! They offer an experienced wedding planner (if you don’t already have your own) who will walk you through the whole process. From start to finish, this venue goes above and beyond.
Edmonton Country Club
This is Edmonton’s first private golf club and country club. You will get a breathtaking view of both the city skyline and the river valley at the Edmonton Country Club. You don’t have to be a member to choose this as your wedding venue. Maximum capacity is 150 seated. The club’s culinary staff will offer a sophisticated menu and cater to all your guests’ specific needs.
The Palace Banquet
Having a reputation in the community as a beautiful wedding venue, The Palace Banquet wants to provide an excellent space for your biggest day. They promise outstanding customer service and will tailor every detail for you. They have dignified ballrooms and elegant decor in their wedding halls. This will provide a stunning backdrop for a romantic wedding.
Mirage Banquet Hall
Sparing no expense, the Mirage Banquet Hall has a swanky feel and has staff devoted to giving you the most special day possible. There is an indoor banquet hall and an outdoor event space that is covered. With the possible number of guests being 75-850, this is one of the larger Edmonton wedding venues on the list. There are many services, one being an offer of setup and removal of chairs. They will even provide additional decor. This gorgeous venue will be one to remember.
The Westin Edmonton
If you want an Edmonton wedding venue smack-dab in the heart of the downtown entertainment and arts district, The Westin Edmonton would be a spectacular choice. Thy offer many highlights to make your day more memorable, like personalized service and customized menus. They have the largest hotel ballroom in Edmonton, which would make for a larger-than-life ceremony! Again: it is a nice option for a venue being in a hotel so your guests also have a place to stay after the wedding.
This list may not include all the Edmonton wedding venues Alberta has to offer, but these are certainly some of the best! If you’re still in need of a photographer, I urge you to contact me here. Congratulations on your big day!
