Guidelines for a Perfect Jasper National Park Wedding
There is currently no formal process or permission required to hold a wedding ceremony at a public area in the park. There is, however, a need for the park to manage its day-use areas and prevent user conflicts.
- At no time does an event have exclusive rights to an area. The function must not displace regular visitors' enjoyment of the park and its facilities. Day-use areas should only be used for the ceremony. Extended stays or receptions are not appropriate.
- Participants and guests require a valid National Parks Pass.
- There must be compliance with National Park regulations at all times.
- There must not be any significant impact on the park's natural and cultural resources. Do not pick flowers; stay on pathways. No shelters or chairs are to be set up in the area. (A few folding chairs for the elderly or infirm are allowed.)
- The event must comply with the Gaming and Liquor Control Act of Alberta. No liquor is permitted in public areas.
- A thorough cleanup of the site immediately after the event must be done. Organizers accept full responsibility for any incidents, and/or costs of clean up or site rehabilitation resulting from the event. No confetti or rice shall be thrown.
- Day-use areas are closed after 2300 hours.
- The person responsible for the event will attempt to keep vehicular traffic to a minimum. Car pooling or group transportation is preferable.
- No gas powered generators are allowed.
- The contact person will be available for a post event inspection if necessary and is at all times responsible for the conduct of the people in his/her charge.
- No excessive noise, horn honking, or loud music are permitted.
Here are just a few of the more common locations. Jasper National Park offers a variety of great outdoor settings and indoor venues to make your special day one to remember for a lifetime.
