Why a Kitchener-Waterloo Wedding at The Walper Hotel?

Every wedding we host is fully tailor-made to our couples’ long-held wants and last-minute whims. We help with customized flowers and décor, accommodations, gift bags and fun outings to keep your guests in a party mood. We have a line on the top local bands and DJs. And because every celebration is judged partially by its food, you’ll have every opportunity to fine-tune your menu with our Executive Chef.

It’ll be perfect. Trust us, it’s what we do.

Consider the Winter Season

Winter weddings don’t just offer a stunning outside backdrop, they have all sorts of indoor bonuses too.
For the winter season, we’ve created special packages with added value to make your planning, and budgeting process that much easier. Choose from additional enhancement options or complimentary extras for all weddings booked between November and March. And just in case you need another excuse, a winter wedding gives you the perfect reason to take an annual tropical trip to celebrate your nuptials.
