Best Western® Brides
Best Western Brantford Hotel & Conference Centre is happy to accommodate any couple and the venue works with any type of style and budget. Melanie says many couples who come to them grew up in the area. For other couples, Brantford is the perfect middle ground for out of town guests. Says Melanie, “Couples like the convenience of being in a hotel… they can party and have a great time and then walk down the hall to their hotel room!”
While modern, edgy wedding décor is certainly on the rise, there are plenty of couples who want to bring back traditional design elements. This means that the classic ballroom wedding is having a moment once again: “The traditional, elegant dinner party wedding is back in fashion. For inspiration, think of the special elements in your grandmother’s dining room—silver candlesticks, monogrammed linen napkins, Battenburg lace overlays, and crystal stemware all have a place in this beautiful and timeless wedding trend. ” – Melanie
