As with all things in life, there are pros and cons. The convenience of a destination wedding comes with a price that is often more than monetary. The reality is that some beloved family members and close friends may not be able to attend a destination wedding because of the cost, health restrictions or time limitations. Another issue facing couples who opt for destination weddings is that there have been issues in the past regarding the legality of some marriages. However, there are ways to solve all of these problems.
The Toronto Wedding Chapel offers pre-destination weddings and post-destination weddings which may include the ceremony or only the reception. This will give you the opportunity to include close family and friends that won’t be able to travel with you. They can share in your joy right here at home. And, if you have the slightest bit of concern with respect to the legality of out-of-country wedding ceremonies, have your ceremony at the Toronto Wedding Chapel and have a symbolic ceremony at your destination wedding.
We have a fabulous selection of wedding packages that can be customized to meet your needs. Planning a pre-destination or post-destination wedding?

I would like to thank the Toronto Wedding Chapel for organizing my pre-destination wedding function.
Katherine was very helpful with the intricate details and made the day go by smoothly. I was very impressed with the decor, settings and choice of my flowers and cake. I highly recommend this place to anyone!
