Factors to consider when planning a Mississauga wedding
As one of the largest cities of Canada, and the population of Mississauga is growing every day, and weddings are increasingly common in the locality. Nevertheless, having a wedding in this city involves plenty of planning and preparation.
Here are some of the most important factors to consider when planning your wedding in Mississauga.
Choose your wedding venue first
There are many great wedding venues in Mississauga. This can make it rather difficult to narrow down your choice to just one. However, this is a priority factor. Your choice of venue will determine number of guests, total expenditure you incur, style of wedding and even the Mississauga wedding dresses that you should consider.
To narrow down your venue options, decide upon the style of wedding you want to have and the number of guests you wish to host. Then eliminate venues that are not suitable for the type of wedding you have in mind. Similarly, your guest list will allow you to strike off venues that are either too small or too large for the number of guests you have in mind. Then check for availability and consider your budget restrictions to zero-in on the right choice.
Do not forget the unpredictable Mississauga weather
From hot, humid summers to cold, freezing winters, pleasant, warm spring and wet rainy weather, Mississauga has it all. Although you may have a general idea of how the weather at the time of your weather is, it is possible that there will be unforeseen changes at any time.
It is a good idea to arm yourself with an alternate plan, should spring showers appear at your outdoor wedding. Or it gets too cold at your wedding in fall. Do not limit yourself to tried and traditional options, when you can simply prepare yourself for the worst. While planning all the details, do not forget to discuss the likely weather scenario as you shop for your wedding dress at Mississauga wedding dress shops. Your bridal consultant can help you choose a dress that is comfortable in the weather.
Take care of the legal formalities
To receive your marriage license following your marriage ceremony in Mississauga, you will have to meet the marriage license requirements set by the state. These are submitting an application form with identity proof documents for both of you, other supporting documents and paying the license fee. Make sure that all your documentation is in order and that you make suitable arrangements to apply for your wedding license on time. All details regarding marriage licenses is available at the Mississauga City Hall website.
Book your vendors in advance
The competition for good vendors is stiff during peak wedding season. So, plan early and book your vendors before someone else does.
Pay attention to who you choose as your wedding caterer, photographer and florist, since the quality of these services directly affects the quality of your wedding. Be sure to check reviews and follow through with referrals and recommendations to ensure any service is reliable. Do this soon, and complete your vendor contract as soon as you make your decision.

Wedding in Mississauga
Mississauga is a city of 668,549 residents, Canada's sixth most populous municipality, located in the Regional Municipality of Peel, Ontario.
Mississauga was purchased by the British in 1805 and incorporated as a city in 1974.
While being in the top ten Canadian cities by population, Mississauga has few cultural institutions for a community its size due to its proximity to Toronto. It is by far the largest city in Canada without a daily newspaper (The Mississauga News is printed three days a week), and currently doesn't have any commercial radio stations. Mississauga is beginning to break away from its label as a "bedroom community" of Toronto as 25,000 more workers commute to jobs in Mississauga than leave.
Mississauga is bound by Oakville and Milton to the west, Brampton to the north, Toronto to the east, and Lake Ontario to the south. Halton Hills borders Mississauga's north-west corner. With the exception of the southeast border with Toronto (Etobicoke Creek), Mississauga shares a land border with all previous mentioned municipalities.
Two major river valleys feed into the lake. The Credit River is by far the longest with the heaviest flow, it divides the western side of Mississauga from the central/eastern portions and enters the lake at the Port Credit harbour. The indented, mostly forested valley was inhabited by native peoples long before European exploration of the area. The valley is protected and maintained by the Credit Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA).
Etobicoke Creek forms part of the eastern border of Mississauga with the city of Toronto. North of there it passes near Pearson Airport. There have been two aviation accidents in 1978 and 2005 where aircraft overshot the runaway and slid into the Etobicoke creek banks. In 1954, heavy flooding resulted in some homes along the riverbank being swept into the lake after heavy rains from Hurricane Hazel. Since that storm, houses are no longer constructed along the floodplain. This creek and its tributaries are administered by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
The climate of Mississauga is represented by an adjacent northwest Toronto weather station; Pearson International Airport. Localized conditions can vary; fog tends to be more common along the lakeshore and in the Credit River Valley at certain times of year, particularly the fall. The southwestern side of the city (Clarkson) can be much milder in winter than northern areas including the airport, while lakeshore areas particularly from Port Credit east through Lakeview are sometimes cooler on hot summer days. Severe weather can occur on occasion usually in the form of winter storms that come from the US Midwest bringing snow often mixed with sleet and sometimes freezing rain. Summer thunderstorms are common, most are not severe but can occasionally bring violent winds. The last known Tornado to touchdown in Mississauga was on July 7, 1985 when an F1 rated tornado struck an industrial park in the Meadowvale area heavily damaging some buildings and parked tractor trailers.
Mississauga is home to more than 18,000 companies ranging from corporate head offices and industrial branch operations to corner store retail businesses, and including 50 of Canada's Fortune 500. Approximately half or 9,000 of these businesses are in the manufacturing, product distribution or corporate sectors due to Mississauga's desirable location in southern Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe and Greater Toronto Area.
Mississauga has provided an ideal environment for small businesses. Many developers have built small multiple units which provide efficient and affordable accommodations for small companies. The economic stability of Mississauga is enhanced by thousands of small and medium-sized businesses. A large percentage of these employers have fewer than 50 employees.
Mississauga is a quickly growing and multicultural city. Statistics Canada estimates that Mississauga now has 678,000 people, an increase of 150,000 from the previous decade and the population has roughly doubled in past twenty years.
Slightly more than 45% of the population speaks a language other than English, reflecting a major large immigrant population. 46.61% of the population was not born in Canada. 40.20% of the population are members of a visible minority (non-white). 21.29% of the population is under 14 years of age, compared to those of retirement age; 8.51%. The median (average) age in Mississauga is 35.0.
