10 Beautiful Bridal Shower Venues in Toronto

Drake and poutine may have put Canada’s largest metropolitan city on the map, but there’s a lot more to Toronto than music and food. If you’re looking for a unique city in which to host your bridal shower, this Canadian hotspot is one to consider. To help you find the perfect location for your pre-wedding party, our friends at the Venue Report rounded up some of their favorite visually-pleasing (and tastebud-satisfying) venues in Toronto.

10 Beautiful Bridal Shower Venues in Toronto

Why do we love Toronto so much? First and foremost, the atmosphere and aesthetic of some of Toronto’s trendiest places are hard to pass up, whether you’re an art enthusiast or just like to look at pretty things. And that’s a unifying element you’ll notice throughout each of these venues. From chic, photo-worthy backdrops and unique bars to the prettiest rooftop terraces you or your guests have ever seen, there’s no shortage of style in this city. Plus, it’s fun to getaway. Combine your bridal shower with your bachelorette party for a destination event no one will forget.

For the music obsessed, we’ve even spotlighted one venue owned by Drake himself. No, you probably won’t see the Toronto native there, but you and your guests can dine on everything from guac and spicy kale caesars to four cheese gnocchi and short rib tacos. Want to plan a themed bridal shower instead? You can’t go wrong with a traditional German bierhalle, where beer and pretzels will wow your guests. For those looking to plan a classic, elegant shower, consider one of the city’s landmark hotels. Make a full day of it by hanging at the indoor pool pre-bridal shower, then retiring to your guest rooms after the festivities are over.
