WEDDING VENUE HELP!
Hi there fellow TO-ers,
My fiance and I are looking for a wedding venue for an end of September wedding. We have done some very thorough research, and now turn to you for your help. Our numbers are between 200 - 250.
Our criteria includes:
- great food
- a venue with a terrace to allow guests to be inside or outside (gorgeous venues such as the Carlu force guests to come down the elevator and hang out on Yonge street for a smoke)
- somewhere unique (not a typical banquet hall)
- somewhere elegant and with character
- somewhere with a good flow for traffic
we have looked at Hart House but are concerned about the lack of AC, and that the AC truck may not be sufficient
Also seen Steamwhistle, but the space is small and a bit too industrial (not elegant enough)
Casa Loma does not meet our numbers
ANY input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated from past brides or brides to be.
Check out Oakdale Golf and Country Club. Beuatiful venue bordered by Jane, Sheppard and the 400. Club house and patio overlook the course so you have no idea you are in the city. Food is great...tons of parking...been to several weddings and other functions there and they do a great job.
We had our wedding at Eagles Nest Golf Club in Maple. We were very pleased and highly recommend it. I found out about Eagles Nest here in chowhound when I was searching for venues. We loved that we are the only event going on that night and the floor to ceiling windows on 2 of the walls overlooking the course. The food was very good and they did not skimp on portions either. Service and staff were all superb and very attentive and accommodated last minute changes some guests requested in their entrees. There is also great terrace just outside the main hall where guests enjoyed cocktail hour (they could move inside or outside) and could go out there at night.
