Rooftop/ Outdoor Wedding in Montreal
We are planning to hold our wedding this summer in Montreal, with 80-100 guests. We're hoping to spend about $100-$130 pp.
The other wedding posts (we've read all of them) all had good advice about venues, but we are looking for something a bit different and were hoping for some fresh ideas.
We'd love something with an outdoor component. Ideally, we'd hold the wedding on a Saturday night during the fireworks festival, and it would be incredible to find a venue (rooftop?) from which to see the fireworks.
We have looked at the Montreal Science Centre, but it's a bit too pricey for us. We've also looked at a couple of restaurants/hotels nearby (Narcisse, Verses), which are great- but their terraces are too small (closer to 60 ppl). So maybe someone has a good idea for an interesting wedding venue that can accommodate 80-100? And it doesn't have to be a rooftop- We're just hoping for something a bit unique; perhaps a courtyard, a garden, a terrasse, or a cool building (something like Cluny- but they couldn't accommodate our dates) would be wonderful.
We have a lot of guests coming to Montreal and would like them to experience the city, so we're also hoping for something in town, and not the outskirts/suburbs.
Wow. I realize that sounde like a lot of requirements- but really we're just excited to get creative input
Yes, it seems to me your main obstacle to getting a rooftop or terrasse that can fit 100 in Mtl it that it will blow your budget of 100-130. The Olympic stadium may be doable for that price, as you bring your own caterer, so if you shop you can manage.
I wanted to add l'Ambroisie, as they have a nice terrasse next to the Canal Lachine (http://www.ambroisie.ca) and would fit your budget very nicely. However, from what I hear the food is pretty average, or it seems uneven, which is risky for a wedding. But you may want to check it out anyways, I haven't tried the food myself.
