SPONSORED: Waterfront Weddings that Wow


I had the great pleasure of staying at the Inn At The Quay New Westminster in February 2011 while in town for Bridal Swap Vancouver.

While there, I was able to see first hand their stunning wedding facilities and thought I'd put together my top 5 favorite things about having a wedding here:

  1. It's All in the Details
    As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a tea enthusiast (read: obsessed) and I was pleasantly surprised to find Mighty Leaf teas in all rooms (along with Starbucks coffee for those of you who are coffee lovers). It wasn't just this though. There were lots of other little details... like the lovely Cutler bath products, bathrobes and waterfront balconies that added some extra personality. These are little touches your wedding guests will notice.

  3. Champagne Saturdays
    Really, I had you at champagne didn't I? Another touch I love. Every Saturday the Inn hosts a champagne party from 3 to 5pm. This means if you have time between your ceremony and reception and you want to get some pictures, rest assured your guests won't be wondering what to do!

  5. On the Water
    As the old adage goes, everyone should live by the water for a time at one point in their lives. Continuing this train of thought, I think there's something wonderful about getting married near the water and the outdoor wrap around private balcony for the ceremony at the Inn At The Quay is a perfect canvas. You can easily accentuate the natural beauty of the location with your theme.

    Plus, New Westminster is centrally located, only 20 minutes to the airport and downtown, making guest travel smooth and easy.

  7. Big or Small - Anything's Possible
    Whether you're planning a small intimate affair or a large celebration, the Inn At The Quay can accommodate weddings from 25 to 150 guests for banquets or 200 for a stand up cocktail reception - always with style and panache.

    Eron, the Catering Manager will work with you to ensure you wedding vision becomes a reality and the Boathouse restaurant will cook up delicious West Coast cuisine for you and your guests.

  8. Get the Star Treatment
    What's a wedding without some perks to make you feel like a start on your big day?

    What if I told you that the bride and groom receive a complimentary wedding night in not just any room, but the Bridal Suite! Picture a gorgeous floor to ceiling view of the water, a king size bed, huge double jacuzzi, rose petals and a bottle of champagne to welcome you back after your celebrations. Hello wedding night!

Best of all, there's still some availability for 2011. For more information, please contact:
