    Beautiful Venue with amazing staff

    Bayview Wildwood was the perfect spot to host our cottage wedding weekend! We had 192 guests all stay on site and the team at BWW worked hard to make sure there was room for everyone as we were near the top end of their capacity! The ceremony and reception areas were gorgeous - the ceremony really doesn't need a lot of decorating - though we did anyway :) as it's right on the water with a gorgeous birch log arbor. The reception area is a great size but there is a slight divider between the room so we sat the head table between the divider so no one would feel far away from the action and speeches which worked well. Creating the floor plan proved to be tricky as we wanted space to dance but we also had 23 tables! My planner and I worked with the BWW dining team to create a plan that worked! The chairs in the dining area are not the most attractive so we ended up renting cuter chairs. The resort has black linens but no other colours so I rented linens as well. The food was delicious and the staff were accommodating to allergies and dietary needs. I highly recommend Bayview Wildwood to anyone planning an up-north style wedding! It was a perfect weekend!

    Weekend Wedding!

    Sorry for the lengthy post- trying to give information for any future brides!

    Bayview Wildwood Resort will always hold a special place in our hearts, as we chose this resort for our wedding weekend September 29th-October 1st 2017. We had a lot of guests from out of province so we wanted a venue that could accommodate all guests (approximately 120 people- but they can hold more) and be it's own destination (beautiful setting, good price, good food etc). We did not want our guests flying in and just staying at a holiday inn for one night and only see us for half a day- so we did an entire weekend where our guests came Friday and left Sunday. That way it was worth it for our guests to make the trip across the country. 

    From our first visit at the resort to the morning we left following the wedding, the staff at Bayview helped make our wedding weekend stress free and so enjoyable. They really cater to what you want for your wedding and provide so much flexibility which we really appreciated. They really go above and beyond and to any bride- that is really important. For example, when we were setting up the arbor, we were trying to position it so that the water trampoline would not show up in any photos- we were struggling with its position and then the ground guys just jumped in a boat, went over to the trampoline and pulled it in on shore so it was no longer an issue. There were many instances such as this where the Bayview staff just jumped in and handled a situation without any direction- this contributed to everything running so smoothly. 

    The plan was to have a bonfire on the Friday night but the weather was absolutely terrible so the back up plan was to all go to the Cedar Room to socialize and play some cards etc but then the power went out for over half the resort (due to weather). My parents had rented Albert Manor (which I highly recommend-where the bridal party got ready etc) and they still had power so we ended up having a big house party with all the guests and this night was super super fun. 

    Saturday, the guests all got to enjoy the resort (some stayed in bed recovering from the Friday night festivities) but guests were canoeing, kayaking, SUPing etc. There is SO much to do here. Then we had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the Albert Manor grounds. Everything went 100% smooth here- really nothing to complain about- a dream ceremony followed by cocktail hour and then reception in the dining lounge with the lake as a back drop. Our guests raved about the food- I didn't have much of an appetite with all of the excitement but what I did have was delish. We did a plated meal- gave our guests the option for chicken, beef or veg. 

    Buffet breakfast was included with our guests accommodation so Sunday morning we got one last chance to see everyone before we all went our separate ways. Many guests have said they would like to come back and everyone said they had the best weekend. Jeff and Jason were my go-to guys (Jason was more resort logistics and Jeff was all things wedding- food and beverage and all the little details from Friday-Sunday). Jeff brought to life any request I had and kept me sane throughout all the wedding planning - you basically get a wedding resort planner for the weekend. They really thought of everything- including sweet gestures like champagne in the room for the bride and groom.

    I cannot rave enough about the resort and staff. Some rooms are more dated than others but they were clean and we loved the more rustic cottage-y vibe- that is exactly what we were going for. Yes trains constantly go by and unfortunately one went by right when our ceremony started so no-one got to hear anything but it did not ruin a thing and is a great memory. If you are a light sleeper you may struggle with that but it was fine and did not bother us- there is actually some amazing history tied with the rail line here so be positive about it!

    If anyone has any questions (especially future brides) do not hesitate to reach out to me I would be happy to answer your questions.

    I am SO thankful we had a such an amazing experience for our wedding and it really comes down to the venue, food and experience your guests have- Bayview really delivers and knows how to throw a wedding. Also- we did not have a huge budget. You could do your wedding as affordable or extravagant as you would like and the wedding rate for your guests is cheaper than any other hotel in the area and included breakfast! 

    Other than choosing to marry my husband, choosing to have our wedding at Bayview Wildwood Resort was the best decision we made for our wedding. We can't wait to go back to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. 

    Thank you for your incredible hospitality!

    Lakeside Wedding of Our Dreams

    Bayview Wildwood hosted our September 2017 wedding and we can’t thank the team enough for making our day (and weekend) so special! If you are looking for a lakeside wedding with a cottage vibe this is your venue! We wanted a good time, with good food, celebrating with those closest to us and Bayview delivered the ideal experience.

    The weather was in our favour and our guests were able to enjoy every inch of the resort during the weekend. From the Friday bon fire to the Saturday ceremony and reception Bayview allowed us to pull off the lakeside wedding of our dreams.

    The BEST Wedding Weekend!

    Jeff, Nancy, Andy, Amanda and the entire Bayview Wildwood team truly made our wedding weekend absolutely incredible and helped bring our vision to life.

    Everything was perfect. Our guests had the best time and we are still hearing from people about how much they enjoyed the weekend. We had to deal with some rain and the rainy day changes that Jeff helped us figure out actually worked better than our original plans.

    The food the entire weekend was AMAZING! The wedding reception food and service were perfect and everyone was so amazed by how tender the beef was. We had fries for a late night snack and they were SO good. The team also accommodated many dietary restrictions without hesitation.

    Nancy was incredible and worked so hard to help us organize the accommodations for our guests. Everyone was SO happy and it all worked out perfectly. The newly renovated rooms are amazing!

    The team went above and beyond to assist us throughout the whole weekend so that we didn’t have to worry about a thing. They accommodated all of our ideas and additions, including distributing almost 100 welcome bags to each room.

    We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. The whole weekend was better than we could have ever imagined we are so grateful to the whole Bayview Wildwood team.

    Bayview Wildwood Resort's reply:

    Thank you so much Emily and Matthew! You are an amazing couple and we loved helping you make your wedding weekend everything you wanted! Thank you for allowing us to share your special day and we wish you all the best for years to come! xo
