Montreal / Quebec City wedding reception venue

sabz3003 Jul 8, 2013 04:04 PM

Hi all!

I've searched high and low, but just can't seem to find a wedding reception venue that:
- Can accommodate 180 people
- Has beautiful Victorian architecture (he modern glamorous type - not the dated kind!)
- OR is a modern space with TONS of natural light. Think skylights and windows galore.
- Has good food
- Don't cost over $200 per person!

All I can find are banquet halls that have no real character, or loft-style spaces (not my taste).

Anyone have any idea that can help me out?

    Did you try the pavilion at the Mont Royal lookout?

      I looked into it, and they can't fit 180 people unfortunately!

      I got married at the Science Center, which may fit the modern space with tons of light criteria. We were 250 people, which was the max capacity of the room. The only thing is that you'll have to have it catered and have rentals brought it. We had Robert Alexis cater and everyone seemed to like it.

        I used to work at a lot of corporate events of the science center, and I agree it is a great option. It has almost floor to ceiling windows. Most of the events we rented furniture from Celebration. http://www.celebrationsgroup.com/

        But you will want a crew to set it up/ someone to manage them.

          Exactly, forgot to mention that point. You'll need someone on site during setup as the Science Center just gives you the empty room and nothing else.

            Yeah, that's kind of why I can't consider the Science Centre. I'm planning this wedding while being in Calgary, so all the coordination for a bare-bones venue just wont happen over long-distance.
            Thanks though, I hear that place is stunning :)

              I would suggest finding a friend or aquaintance to manage this for you in Mtl/Quebec City. Organizing it from afar is pretty difficult. If you don't have a friend to do it, there are people who will do this for a fee.

        Don't know about the prices, but Le Windsor could maybe fit the bill

          I have no idea about the prices of the following suggestions, but here are the places I would consider if I had to get married again.

          In the modern category, both the MBAM (http://www.mbam.qc.ca/la-verriere) and the Museum of modern art (http://www.macm.org/en/general-information/rental-opportunities/) offer rentals, but you'll have to book the food separately.

          L'Entrepot Dominion offers catering : http://entrepotsdominion.ca/
