Meeting your soulmate in a bar may not be as unlikely as it sounds. Just ask Vancouver couple Cynthia Oishi and Ernest Chan — although their romance began rather slowly after they first met through mutual friends at a downtown nightspot 12 years ago. Read more.

Your wedding day is one of the most significant days of your life and selecting a date can be challenging. How do you decide? What set each month apart? To assist you with this big decision we have listed some helpful hints for each month below.


With the sun setting early in the day, and a cool crisp chill in the air, January offers the perfect backdrop to create your romantic winter wonderland setting.


Host your special day during the month of love and romance and take advantage of the last days of winter.


New exciting spring flowers are beginning to blossom, and rainy days call for good luck!


Beautiful sunsets and cherry blossoms set the scene for the perfect backdrop for outdoor photographs.


The temperature is perfect and with the sun still setting early, dinner can start off with a sunset and you will be dancing in no time!


Be the first of your friends to tie the knot and avoid the explosion of wedding season!


The beginning of summer and warm evenings allow for outdoor mingling throughout the night.


If you are planning an outdoor ceremony and photographs at the beach, August is historically the most reliable month. The sunshine is at its peak throughout the day, and later ceremonies are always a bonus, especially if you planning to host your wedding mid-week to avoid food and beverage minimums. Refreshing cocktails are always a hit this time of year and are a great way to incorporate your wedding colours!


Colours around the city are starting to change, creating an array of different options for wedding themes. If you are planning your honeymoon to follow in a warm destination, this is the perfect time to escape as husband and wife!


With fall in full swing, October offers all the same inspiring backdrop options as September, without food and beverage minimums.


If you were engaged over New Year’s or Valentine’s Day, waiting an entire year and a half for summer to come might not be the best option, and for those wanting an off-season wedding the spring may be too soon. November is a great month to still enjoy the fall season and take full advantage of “quieter” season pricing.


With the holiday spirit, and more opportunity for out-of-town guests to travel, December is a great winter option. Most venues will have décor to enhance the holiday atmosphere, which can help you to save on your wedding décor.

Also – New Year’s Eve is not to be forgotten. Toast to the New Year as husband and wife when the clock strikes midnight!
