The West Coast
According to Vital Statistics of Canada, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of Weddings held here on The West Coast of Vancouver Island in recent years. In 2007 there were between 500 and 600 wedding ceremonies celebrated between the small towns of Tofino and Ucluelet, that is more than 1 a day.
“The Perfect Day”
Why are more couples deciding on A Destination Wedding?
Especially on ”Elopement Packages” ?
Well there are a few reasons for this:
More and More Canadians are spending their “well earned dollar” in their own country, where it has true value.
Many couples are on their second marriage and have come to the realization that this time around they are going to have a very simple wedding doing exactly what will make them happy.
Other couples, have realized that they do not have to go abroad for a white sandy beach to have their intimate wedding on, that right here in beautiful British Columbia we have amazing stretches of clean beaches just waiting to be walked upon.
Many of the guests that are coming to these weddings are making it into their yearly vacation.
Some couples think that when they decide to have a destination wedding that that will keep their guest #’s down but in fact surprisingly 80% of guests invited to a West Coast Wedding decide to come!
So if you are looking for a stress free, intimate wedding with just the two of you or a couple of hundred of your closest family and friends, then think no farther away than right here in Tofino or Ucluelet.
