I'm looking to have my wedding in the Rockies in the fall of 2014 (gives me TONS of time to plan). I've seen a few posts about people suggesting places for an elopement, but I'm looking to have 50-60 people for mine.
I'm open to any suggestions for locations in Jasper, Banff, Lake Louise, and Canmore. I was somewhat drawn to locations in Jasper, but I think it may be difficult for guests to travel from Edmonton or Calgary to Jasper. I'm under the impression that locations in Banff or Lake Louise would be a little more expensive, because they are they more "known" locations, but I could be completely wrong. Can anyone suggest a location? I was also looking to have an outdoor ceremony (can't waste the scenary!!).
I'm also considering hiring a planner. Has anyone had experience using the ones in the Rockies? Any suggestions? Or would it be better to plan from afar (I'm in Toronto)?
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
