Summer, Wedding Season in Quebec. According to the Institut de la statistique du Québec, in 2019, out of 22,841 marriages, 10,096 marriages were celebrated in the months of June, July and August, i.e., more than 44% of the marriages of the year. In the Belle Province, almost half of the weddings take place in summer. If we include the month of September, more than one in two weddings is celebrated in the summer season, during the year.
Also, more than one in two marriages is a civil marriage in Quebec. What is available to the couples as a civil wedding celebration in the summer?
We first think of the Montreal courthouse or any other courthouse in Quebec. Indeed, for a long time, civil ceremonies were done naturally at this place. Many will choose this option for a very private wedding in a courtroom. It takes about 90 days from the request to have your civil marriage celebrated. Also, the hours of celebration are from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and do not take place on Sundays or holidays.
The notary can celebrate a civil marriage every day between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m., Sundays and public holidays included. The notary, as officiant, may officiate at any other location agreed with the future spouses as long as the location respects the solemn nature of the ceremony and is arranged accordingly. Thus, by choosing a notary as celebrant, future spouses benefit from a wider choice as to the place where the ceremony will be held and the date and time of the ceremony.
Couples who are planning a wedding this summer will also find that the waiting times with a notary have been greatly reduced. For example, Etude Lincà, can celebrate your civil union in as little as 21 days. The beautiful season being short in Quebec, that is an advantage to consider.
Summer, Wedding Season in Quebec. What are your options for the place of ceremony?
When it comes to the location chosen for the celebration of a civil wedding in the summer, the choice is vast. Ceremonial rooms in restaurants, inns and other planned rooms are at your disposal. Couples can also celebrate their civil marriage outdoors, in the countryside or on a boat, if they so desire. One who says summer, says sun, says flowers, says nature. Indeed, getting married outside, in communion with the beauty of flowers, what could be more romantic for your civil wedding?
Indoor or outdoor? That is the question.
Does that mean that your ceremony, if you want it in Montreal, close to your home and your guests, must necessarily take place inside? The answer is no. Would you like a civil wedding celebration with a celebrant near you and your guests but want a rustic, romantic and festive atmosphere at the same time?
It is possible to combine the two, in this beautiful season so short in Quebec. Notary Lincà, civil wedding officiant, offers you an alternative to indoor ceremony rooms: the “Radiant Gardens” courtyard, your corner of paradise for this incredibly special moment in your life! An enchanting and rural setting, poetic and floral, in the heart of the metropolis.
For photography lovers, the light backdrop inspires the taking of beautiful photos of equally radiant newlyweds for that extraordinary day of their lives. Congratulations to the couples who will get married this summer, the wedding season in Quebec. Have a wonderful summer!
