Why You Should Marry in Niagara Falls

February 20, 2015 10:00 am

FARBlog5Marriage is an important commitment — but it seems that planning a wedding is an always scary proposition. Weddings require the perfect interplay of thousands of tiny details: The flower petals must match the bridesmaids’ barrettes; the centerpieces must complement the tables; and not one guest can be robbed of a gracious “thank you so much for attending.”

Perhaps the stress of organizing a massive wedding is why so many couples are turning to destination weddings, which are nuptials held outside hometowns — usually in some faraway, romantic place. There are many benefits to avoiding a nearby wedding, including:

  • Enjoying a unique and memorable experience.
  • Receiving relief from planning from dedicated experts at the destination.
  • Incurring fewer costs and lower prices.
  • Limiting the guest list to close friends and family members.
  • Starting the honeymoon early.

Destination weddings have been shown to be smaller, less expensive, and more fun, so it is easy to see why they are desirable. And, if you keep reading, you’ll find out why destination weddings in Niagara Falls are simply the best of the best.

Weddings in Niagara Falls

FARBlog6Niagara Falls is an exceptionally beautiful place for anyone to visit, but lovers in particular have a strong attraction to this one-of-a-kind destination. The verdant landscape, filled with vineyards, forests, and carefully tended parks and gardens, can’t help but inspire passion. While Niagara has long been recognized as the Honeymoon Capital of the World, it is fast becoming a top spot for pre-wedding couples as well.

While the tourist district of Niagara has transformed into a downtown-style space for visitors of all sorts — the streets are filled with arcades, amusement park rides, theaters, casinos, and more — the region around the city proper is a charming and delightful place to exchange vows. The Niagara Parks system has hundreds of natural spaces seemingly designed for quiet, quaint nuptials, and old towns around the countryside, like St. Catharines or Niagara-on-the-Lake, boast gorgeous churches and other religious spaces for more spiritual couples to tie the knot. Plus, all that hustle and bustle of the tourist district provides plenty of entertainment for visiting family and friends before and after the wedding takes place.
