To offer brides-to-be a premier shopping experience, we've set up a video camera system at our Hamilton Best for Bride location. This system allows brides-to-be (or bridesmaids and mothers of the bride) to see how their dresses look while they are walking.

By giving you dual views of prospective wedding gowns, we offer you an ideal and failsafe way to choose the perfect gown for your body type and your own unique, natural beauty.

In the past, before our new system was up and running, it was more difficult for women to judge dresses, since they couldn't see how they looked as they moved in them. In fact, without this service at your disposal, it may be all too easy to make a mistake and choose a gown that is not flattering from every angle.

When you choose Best for Bride Hamilton, you'll be able to watch yourself walk in your new gown. Our system gives you a "runway" experience, allowing you to view yourself just as you'd view a fashion model as she walks down a catwalk in Paris, Milan or New York.

Tips to help you choose your reception venue in Hamilton

Hamilton is an excellent wedding location, as you have plenty of amazing reception venue choices to choose from. There are options that fit any wedding budget, size, theme and weather in this quaint location. All you have to do is zero-in on the one that is just perfect for you.

Hamilton Reception

Before you start your search for a reception venue, there are certain factors that you should consider in order to choose a place that is just right for your special day. Let us find out what they are.

Time of year when you are getting married

The best venues in Hamilton are usually fully booked months in advance. Once you know your wedding date, hasten with your venue decision so you get your booking done on time. Many venues like the Best Western St.Jacob's Country Inn slash their rates and offer better packages in winter. So, if you are open to getting married during the off-season, which is usually in January and February, you may get a better rate. Another great option is Wedding at Carmen's.

Location of venue

It will be convenient for you and your wedding guests if the ceremony and reception venues are nearby. You would also have to consider how to get there and leave the venue after the function. If there are many out-of-town guests attending your wedding, a venue near the hotel they stay at will be ideal. Otherwise, they will have to make travel arrangements to get to the location and back to the hotel as well.

Formality of the event

Your venue should reflect the type of wedding you have planned. While some venues are suitable for formal parties, others are better for casual affairs. For a scenic wedding, consider a vineyard or location by the river. The Waterlot Restaurant and Inn is a perfect choice for such an event. For a formal, elegant wedding consider the Walper Hotel or Hauser Hall. The Stratford Country Club on the other hand, is a versatile choice that caters to both traditional weddings as well as trendy ones. If you want a dramatic setting for your wedding, how about considering the Museum that offers both ceremony and reception venues in the same space?

Hauser Hall

Available packages

While some reception venues have all-inclusive packages that make your wedding planning a breeze, others allow you to customize your wedding decor to suit your unique taste. Then there are venues like Lake Lyndsay that offer you both options, where you can either go with their package deal or just hire the venue and find the vendors who would perfectly implement your wedding ideas.

Number of guests

The venue you choose should be able to accommodate all the guests attending your wedding. Some venues like the Hessenland Country Inn, have more than one reception hall, and you can choose the one that is most suitable for your needs. Apart from checking out the facilities like disabled access and parking, also check out their food and drink service. Depending on whether their meals are sit-down style or buffet, and whether they have an open bar, you can determine whether it fits your taste and budget.
