Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
Markus Staley Photography (http://www.MarkusStaleyPhotography.com), Toronto’s leading local and destination wedding photographer, is weighing in on the top wedding trends in 2014. Markus Staley Photography is also announcing a special 10% discount on 2014 wedding packages.
“December is the most popular month to get engaged in Canada, with half of all weddings taking place between July and September. That means that right now, the majority of brides-to-be are busy planning their upcoming nuptials,” says Markus Staley, owner and operator of. Markus Staley Photography. “And while traditional weddings are still the most popular type of wedding, less formal weddings, including unplugged and offbeat weddings, are quickly gaining in popularity.”
Staley explains that more and more couples are choosing small, quaint weddings. Small-scale weddings, meaning 10 to 100 people in a restaurant or unique venue, create a memorable, intimate setting. Potential locations could include a fancy barn, cottage, countryside inn, upscale bistro, or rooftop terrace.
Destination weddings are also getting more popular. With the average wedding cost in Canada last year of $32,358, more and more couples are deciding on a wedding at an exotic destination with a few close friends and family; it’s both romantic and cost-effective. Off-season weddings and non-Saturday-night nuptials are also expected to become more popular in 2014.
