Why You Should Have An Okanagan Wedding

There are so many reasons you should consider an Okanagan wedding, and while tasty wine may be what you are thinking of, it’s not the ONLY reason you should get married in this gorgeous interior region! 

With so much to offer, there is something appealing for every bride and their vision! Here are my top reasons why you should consider an Okanagan wedding!

Okanagan Weather

Sure, summers may be hot in the Okanagan, but the dry desert weather truly brings divine wedding vibes with clear skies and the valley to view! With very little rain, you’re almost guaranteed to have the sun shining on your wedding day. 

With unpredictable Vancouver weather, if you’re opting for an outdoor ceremony this is usually a concern for most brides. You can plan your ideal outdoor wedding with little stress about the rain gods wreaking havoc and sit back to plan the perfect day.

Lots of Fun Things To Do In The Okanagan

If you have guests coming from near and far, there is no shortage of fun to be had before the wedding festivities kick off!! 

Your guests will have so many options to choose from to fill their days prior to the wedding — Okanagan wine country tours, water activities, or even a relaxing lake day. Who doesn’t love a mini vacation mixed in with a celebration? Sign me up!

You’ll have unlimited Okanagan wedding venues and resorts to choose from to help plan your fairytale and you’ll have the natural beauty of the Okanagan to lean on. 

Looking to get married at a winery, on the lake, or atop a mountain range overlooking the scenic views? The locations throughout Okanagan have got you covered!

Relax With An Okanagan Winery Wedding

I’ve always loved the idea of a welcome reception as guests arrive at a destination location. An  Okanagan winery wedding accompanied by scenic views is the perfect location to host your guests! 

Enjoy the Okanagan scenery, local wine, and good company. It gives your guests the opportunity to get to know each other before the wedding and is a great excuse to relax and decompress beforehand.

A Destination Wedding, But Close To Home!

More and more, I’m seeing couples wanting to keep their destination weddings closer to home, rather than flying to a tropical location. Okanagan destination weddings can feel like a new oasis only a few hours away!

It’s close enough to home to make it easily accessible, but far enough away to transport you into vacation mode. Plus, transferring wedding materials is a lot easier when you can pack up the car!! With the airlines these days, you can bank on your luggage making it to that final pit stop 🙂
