We’ve sourced some of the best wedding venues in Calgary and categorized them by wedding style, location and feel. Each wedding venue on the list has a verified link to a location on Google Maps and a link to a page that describes the facilities and options to host your wedding. Finally, we want to give you some visual content around each wedding place on the list, so you’ll notice that many venues come with an accompanying video of a wedding.

 

We love this list as is and we do spend time updating it regularly BUT there are a few other sources that might help you find your wedding location. Among those are Best Venues in Calgary lists such as the one at Yelp. We also recommend looking at space and venue options at such Calgary landmarks as Calgary Stampede grounds and a list of park venue options at the City of Calgary.

So, enough with the intro. Let’s get right into our popular categories of wedding venues in Calgary…
