Our friends from Great Events Group are on the blog showcasing on their premier Calgary wedding venues, The Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant! 

There are so many things to consider when it comes to planning your epic day. Choosing a date and a venue are the most important decisions that you'll have to make after saying YES! Whether you would love to be surrounded by the beauty of blooming flowers in spring or feel the heat of a summer's day sipping lemonade in the sun. Perhaps the yellows, oranges and reds of an autumn afternoon is your choice or last but not least a fresh blanket of snow and a crackling fire is the one for you.

However there is one key factor that will determine whether or not all the beautiful visions you have for your wedding will come true...The venue! After all, not all venues are created equal, some will be the perfect fit in summer but not so much in winter, while some will be fabulous in autumn but not that great in spring. When it comes to choosing a venue, no matter what season, it can feel like a pretty daunting process.

Until now!
