Choosing a Venue
Weddings on Land
For those looking to have their wedding close to the Falls, many Fallsview Hotels have beautiful venues where you can host your wedding just steps from the awe-inspiring Falls. Beyond a hotel option, Niagara Parks creates breathtaking weddings at several of their properties - from Fallsview to riverfront venues. Let them plan your dream wedding, whether it's a small gathering with your closest friends and family, or a gala-style event for up to 600 guests!
Just a short drive beyond the city limits of Niagara Falls you'll find Niagara-On-The-Lake, home to several distinct wineries and chapels that make a gorgeous wedding backdrop. The old fashioned, small-town feel of the chapels and ranging styles of wineries accompanied by sprawling vineyards make for not only a beautiful venue, but for the perfect setting to capture life-lasting photos of your big day.

Weddings on Water
If the options above don't quite float your boat, head to Hornblower Niagara Cruises to exchange vows as close as you possibly can to the Horseshoe Falls, for a surreal wedding experience. Say 'I Do' aboard the Hornblower boat, and then head to their private outdoor tent event space for a reception in the Niagara Gorge with breathaking views of all three waterfalls.
