My fiance and I had a small venue picked out, but our guest list has “magically” grown on each side and to avoid causing WW3 between our families, groom and I have decided to just say screw it and find a new place that will hold 150 plus now.<br />That being said, our old place qouted us 90pp and we know that the average in toronto and durham is roughly 120 pp. <br />Was wondering if anyone paid under 95 pp including EVERYTHING, bar, food, linen, etc…and can let us know where? we are having a sunday wedding next year so thats in our favour. <br />It has to be within travel distance from GTA (grooms church is in the GTA and ive been TOLD we are not permitted to switch churches by them) so if i have to make his side of the family drive from downtown to markham, oshawa, etc to get to the venue 🙂I wont lose sleep at night…<br />I checked out ajax convention centre…105 pp everything included and the lady we delt with was great…tried contacting Brighton events NO ANSWER from them!!! grrr…<br />I read on here from other brides, crystal fountain has low prices, any brides use any of these places or found venues for similar prices?<br />Seriously stressing out because my groom has refused to go for anything like a hall or a legion, etc. he wants fine dining at a burger king price *pulls my hair out* anyone else have a groomzilla?<br /><br /><br />

We just attended a wedding at Ajax Convention Centre less than a month ago. Very pretty venue, service was pretty good. Food 3.5-4 out of 5 in my opinion, I know you can’t please everyone. I don’t know how much it was pp but I’m sure they customized their menu, because it was over the top from what I saw on the venue’s package choices. If you can do yours for $105pp, and be happy with your choices, you might want to consider it. Good luck!

Crystal Fountain just quoted me $100 a plate deluxe open bar, antipasto with seafood, 2 pastas, salad, chicken&beef with roast potatoes and veggies, crepes with icecream for dessert & late night sweet table. No linens are included though, just white or ivory table cloths.

Check out the McNeil Room above Whistlers. It’s very decent pricing and good capacity. They recently renovated so it’s beautiful, and there’s an amazing view of the Don Valley and skyline.

Katie.Xo: Look into The Estate & Banquet Centre (http://estatebanquets.com/). We are planning our wedding there. So far, so good.
Also check our St. Peter & Pauls (http://www.peterandpaulhall.ca/)

Katie.Xo: Umm I had friends have weddings at the Scarbrough convention centre….and they dodn’t spend too much on the wedding…so it must be affordable. I think it’s all in how you negotiate the price…a Sunday wedding shouldn’t start @ $120 when a Saturday will do the same.
I also attened weddings at the Ajax. Ajax also has a gold course on Tunton, and there is a venue at cullen Gardens on Taunton in Whitby (but I don’t know if it’s open now)…check those out
