6 Edmonton Wedding Stories

From proposal tips to crowd-pleasing wines, we share some of Avenue’s previous wedding features.

Avenue Edmonton first introduced a wedding section in our January 2012 issue, and ever since, it’s been a yearly tradition. Since this year marks the fifth year of incorporating a wedding section, we’re looking back at some of the experts we’ve talked to and stories that couples have shared with us over the years.


Social media plays a huge role in our daily lives, so why not incorporate it in your special day like these Edmonton couples did? We also share some rules on engaging with a social-media wedding so that you don’t end up committing a #wedding faux pas.
