Wedding Caterer - Edmonton

Friends are planning to get married next September, and since they are having the event at Fort Ed. Park, they have the freedom to hire any caterer they want. Does anybody have good ideas about this? They are not totally restricted budget-wise, but they want to be reasonable (mid-range) about prices.

  1. No clue on the price range but my friends got married this year and used Bridges for their catering for the cocktail party (appies only) and for a bbq. Both were good. Some items were great, others average. But isn't that always the way on buffets? Overall I would recommend them.

    1. Elizabethan Catering does events at Fort Edmonton and are familiar with the facilities (

      1. We are probably using The Dish and Runaway Spoon for our wedding. Based purely on the online menus of every Edmonton caterer we could find it looked the best to us.

        1. We used Elizabethan Catering for our wedding and were very happy with them.

            I went to a wedding last weekend at fort edmonton- elizabethan catered the wedding and ran out of vegetables with about 50 people left to feed.

              Hmm... I have to admit that I was the bride at the wedding, there was Scotch in the church (my dad was in a kilt and had a hip flask, which we polished off before he gave me away), wine while we were all getting ready for the wedding, and champagne on the way over to the reception. Plus, the wedding was attended by a mixture of Scots-Irish-German-Russian family members and friend who were ready to PARTY.

              So, I guess, the wedding was great, the party fantastic, we had food, and Elizabethan catered it. I recall (maybe) that the hip of bison was a bit dry, so if you go with them, don't order it.

                must have been a different wedding that weekend kali, b/c elizabethan served a beef striploin at the one i went to- the steak was very good- but, running out of vegetables was lame.

          2. Sorry, I've only had mediocre to horrible experiences from Elizabethan. For small parties they seem okay but at large functions the roast beef is dry, dry, dry and only thing I find edible there are the perogies and green salad.

            I would say Dish and Runaway Spoon or Krave. Another suggestion would be to call up your favourite restaurant and ask if they do catering at all.
