A wedding in Pemberton? If you're looking for that perfect combination of casual sophistication, Pemberton is your ideal venue.

It's true that a Pemberton wedding won't cater to your desire to hold your wedding in a cookie-cutter banquet hall where guests can choose between generic chicken or slightly more daring fish.

But if you'd like a wedding that perfectly captures your style, where everyone feels welcome and at ease enjoying your special day, well, consider Pemberton.

We have a page dedicated to all the wedding-themed services offered in Pemberton with a detailed list of venues, photographers, and caterers. It's all there for you to start planning.

But a wedding in Pemberton is the start to a wedding dedicated to the best casual chic style, and we thought we'd go a little further and offer some of the best wedding style ideas around.

Pemberton is rural, but it's not only for those who want a country-themed wedding. There are great options for many different kinds of casual chic weddings here. From farm-to-table weddings, to barn weddings, to the classic golf course wedding to a rustic wedding inspired by our British Columbia history, there are lots of ways to tie the knot in Pemberton.

1. The Farm Wedding

For this wedding North Arm Farm is a worthy choice for your venue. The Sturdy family has worked hard to bring farming to the limelight in Pemberton, by offering their working farm as a venue for community dinners, the after-party for the Nimby Fifty as well as the venue for Araxi's annual long table dinner.

If you are interested in a gorgeous farm-to-table wedding with Mount Currie as your backdrop and freshly picked food served in an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous setting, then North Arm Farm might be your place.

Consider a few of these ideas from Country Living to add to the style. Creating fresh bouquets from herbs, for example, is one way to add a naturally scented touch to your day. Any surface can become an old-fashioned chalkboard with a little chalkboard paint. Consider chalkboard place cards, for example. 

2. The Golf Wedding

Pemberton has two distinguished golf courses for you to choose from to host your wedding. Both have breathtaking views of Mount Currie, both boast excellent restaurants with gorgeous venues for your special event. 

Big Sky Golf and Country Club and The Meadows at Pemberton will host your wedding in style, allowing you to focus on your day. Each has full catering services available, allowing you again to simply relax and enjoy your day. And, if you are truly a golf-loving couple, check out these awesome ideas from Emmaline Bride to make your day truly special.

Especially adorable? The golf-inspired "Save the Date" cards.

3. The Barn Wedding

In Canada, you have quite the range of places to hold an authentic rustic barn wedding. But in Pemberton, we've stepping it up a bit with our downtown timber frame community barn. It is available for events such as your wedding, and with a quick look at the Pemberton Village website, you can easily rent out space. 

A rustic barn wedding is a chance to really let your inner cowboy or girl out — in style. There are countless ways that you can achieve this. Check out these casual wedding ideas from The Knot for some excellent twists on the traditional themed wedding. A touch of burlap (but not too much) or a few mason jars used either as flower vases or candle votives are ideas worth considering. 

4. The History-Themed Wedding

The Pemberton and District Museum is a great place to consider as a wedding venue. The history of British Columbia is in many ways encapsulated in the history of places like Pemberton. The Lil'wat Nation is represented, as well as the pioneer farming families who arrived beginning around one hundred and fifty years ago. The grounds are lovely, and a great way to commemorate your special day in a setting that is uniquely British Columbian.

For some truly over-the-top rustic pioneer wedding ideas, take a look at Lauren Bush Lauren's wedding in Colorado. But for a more down-to-earth chic style, consider using the museum as a backdrop to your own unique ideas. Nothing beats the untouched scenery, and the museum itself, unembellished, is a perfect setting to a wedding.

We hope you have the wedding of your dreams in Pemberton. Take a look through all our offerings, and ask around for still more ideas on venues and places to stay.
