Montreal / Quebec City wedding reception venue
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?

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.
Hi chefjeannine. I'm thinking of getting married at the Science Centre. We've already put a date on hold. We are just trying to figure out all the costs before confirming. Did you have a wedding planner? I'm worried about the coordination of the day. Our caterer does not come with wait staff, making things a bit difficult...but his food is amazing and its buffet style..so we would need to get wait staff to clear dishes and bartenders, someone to set up etc. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate it :)
I'd me more than happy to provide some insight! We definitely had a "day of" wedding planner, in a space like the Science Centre it's absolutely necessary. Agreed about wait staff to clear if your caterer doesn't offer wait staff. Are you looking for more caterer options or are you sticking with them? We used Robert Alexis who we were satisfied with overall (just a few hiccups, but to be expected with an event of that size!).
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-inform...) offer rentals, but you'll have to book the food separately.
