There are so many reasons to love Halifax, so why not begin your lives together by hosting your wedding in this magical city?! Here are my top 6 reasons why you should consider Halifax as your wedding destination!
You can count on having a number of out-of-town guests so with that in mind, you need to ensure that they’re well informed on their travel and accommodation options.

Being a vacation and convention destination, there are plenty of hotels and B&B’s that will have your guests feeling like a local.

For your guests, this wedding is going to be an amazing vacation for them to cherish! Not only do they get to share in your sweet nuptials, they also get to swim in the ocean and experience Nova Scotia’s delicious seafood. As soon as they see “…in Halifax, Nova Scotia” on the invitation, they would be a fool not to immediately put that RSVP in the mail with an anchor in place of a check mark next to “attending.”
