If you have never thought about weddings abroad in Montreal,Canada then you don't know what you're missing. Geographically the city is the second largest in Canada and the largest in the province of Quebec and offers a diversity than hardly any other city can match. French speaking, the culture is everywhere. From the vibrant cafe bars down town, to the first class restaurants and hotels in and around the old port area, these offer you a great place to get married. This city has a great balance of old and new as modern and antique architecture sit perfectly side by side. If it's photo opportunities you're after then the view from the top of mount Royal shouldn't be missed. On the whole, whatever type of wedding you are after, Montreal can deliver.
You must apply for a licence at least 20 days before you plan to get married as this is the time needed to publish the Banns. These will be placed in the local court house (this is where you purchase the licence from) and the place of your wedding. The cost of this is $247 Canadian dollars plus taxes. In order to make your purchase you are going to need proof of age in the form of a birth certificate and valid photo ID in the form of a drivers licence or a passport. Please note: Only original documentation is permitted, no photocopies!
