Among the myriad of choices waiting for you in our vast, beautiful city, choosing the perfect, one-of-a-kind venue stands as one of the most integral moments in shaping the vibe and essence of your special day. For couples seeking a cohesive mix of sophistication, charm, character, and timeless elegance, Toronto offers tons of enchanting wedding venues that will make your special day feel like it came straight of out a fairytale – or maybe even just a bridal magazine, for those realists out there.



With United Entertainment's helpful, easy-to-digest guide on Toronto's Top 5 Magical Wedding Venues, we'll make finding the perfect, enchanting, whimsical setting for your wedding a total breeze. You may be wondering, however, what do I look for specifically when choosing a venue? What kind of features, decor, and serving choices fit best for your special day? Don't worry – here are a few important factors to consider when selecting your dream wedding spot.

  1. Your Budget – most couples' biggest factor that determines nearly everything about their wedding is what kind of budget they have. Your budget will directly inform you of what's possible and what isn't. Sure, while we all want to have that fairytale, magical day, some things are simply far too expensive for most average couples to afford. Ensure to establish a clear budget that includes not only the venue rental fee but also any additional costs such as catering, decorations, and rentals. Some companies and venues handle a lot of this for you, but make sure to confirm what is included with your package before booking.

  2. Capacity and Space – how many guests do you want at your wedding? Carefully consider the size of your guest list and ensure that the venue can comfortably accommodate all of your guests. This may be the time to cut your guest list down a bit – who really needs to invite all their co-workers to grumpy great aunt to their wedding? Take into account factors such as seating arrangements, dance floor space, and any additional areas you may require for cocktail hours, ceremonies, or other activities. It's crucial to strike a balance between a space that feels intimate and one that doesn't feel overcrowded.

  3. Ambiance and Style – Reflect on the overall aesthetic and atmosphere you envision for your wedding day. Whether you prefer a rustic barn, a historic mansion, a modern loft, or a fancier hotel, choose a venue that aligns with your style and theme. Pay attention to architectural details, lighting options, and existing decor elements that can enhance the ambiance and create the desired mood for your celebration. For example, if you want a more cottagecore-styled wedding, maybe don't consider booking a mansion or modern event space. Some companies, such as us at United Entertainment, can help set the atmosphere with our killer DJ packages that will get everyone on their feet.

  4. Location and Accessibility – Is the venue conveniently located for both you and your guests? Consider factors such as proximity to transportation hubs, accommodation options like hotels, and whether the venue offers ample parking or valet services. Moreover, you should also consider your guests' budget – is it really fair of you to expect your guests to fly across the country, for example? Additionally, evaluate the accessibility of the venue for guests with mobility issues to ensure that everyone can fully participate in your celebration.

  5. Flexibility and Amenities – Assess the flexibility of the venue in accommodating your specific needs and preferences. Inquire about available dates, time slots, and any restrictions or requirements imposed by the venue. Some venues require you to show up at certain times or even prohibit next-day teardown, making your coordination key. Consider the amenities and services offered, such as in-house catering, audiovisual equipment, and dressing rooms. A venue that provides comprehensive services and is willing to work closely with you to customize your event can alleviate stress and streamline the planning process – however, even without venue-specific coordination, there are countless wedding coordinating services in the city that can make your day a total breeze.
