I'm looking for a wedding venue to host approx 140-150 guests for lunch or dinner. Restaurants and/or unique locations would be preferable. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Mr. Vuitton and I had our reception at the AGO (it was before the renovations), but the food was wonderrful, the execution perfect and our guests still talk about it now, many years later. I highly recommend it, or at least looking in to it. The best part was that the costing (at that time) was no more expensive than a hotel reception (we had ~160 people), but far more interesting, IMHO.
Hi, I wish I could remember, but just can't
We had hors d'oerves (sp?), starters, main, dessert, open bar, midnight sweet buffet
I would suggest just calling them and asking. We priced The Granite Club, Sutton Place Hotel, AGO and a few of the other downtown hotels - they were all about the same price
Here is the link for the AGO's Baillie Court. http://www.ago.net/venue-rental
I would think the AGO charges more than $110 per person for a wedding dinner including appetizers, drinks and taxes, but the AGO might be able to do a wedding brunch for less. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to answer your questions if you give them a call.
According to one poster last year, the ROM and the AGO charge $250+ per person: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5915...
I DJ around 50 weddings/year & have eaten at most of the banquet halls and through caterers - here are some 'unique' urban venue suggestions:
Steam Whistle Brewery
The Berkeley Church Field House & Main Venue
St. Lawrence Hall
The Design Exchange
The Capitol Event Theatre
The Royal Conservatory of Music
Hope that gives you a start!
