Hello!<br /> So we are looking for a venue for about 60 people for a 2015 wedding! The venue doesn’t have to be in Toronto, just as long as it’s within an hour ride of the city. We have a pretty tight budget as we are paying for it ourselves, we would prefer if it was 100$pp including the venue rental, the food, open bar, etc. Basically we don’t want any surprise costsJ. We are more than happy to get married in the winter (off season) or on a Sunday/Friday in order to cut costs! Also, we would rather if the venue was a bit different; not the typical banquet hall with typical banquet hall food. So far we have looked at the Kortright Conservation Area and Old Mill Inn and Spa. Does anyone have any suggestions or personal experiences?

Check out the Distillery District Loft, there’s a minimum spend on food and drink but no rental fee. Depending on the time of year and day you choose, I think you could make it work with your budget.
Hope that helps 🙂

springdawnin: Otellos in Oakville is very reasonably priced and they have completely All Inclusive Packages. There’s also Paletta Mansion in Burlington, McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Black Creek Pioneer Village is gorgeous….

springdawnin: We got married at Paradise Banquet Hall in Vaughan, their Prince Room is absolutely beautiful and is perfect for a small wedding (we had 68 guests). The room also has a massive terrace that you can decorate and use, it makes for a great indoor/outdoor space. The price for Friday’s and Sunday’s is very reasonable and honestly the food was AMAZING! 4 months late and friends and family are still saying it is the best wedding food they have ever had. We paid $74.95/person for the deluxe antipasto bar, 2 pastas, 2 meats, dessert and premium bar. It also includes the chavari chairs, which I think make the space look so eligent.

We got married at Sassafraz: http://www.sassafraz.ca/weddings/weddings.aspx. I loathe the typical event spaces/ banquet hall venues.. Getting married at a restaurant we enjoy eating at was a non-negotiable for us.
Although our pp cost was $275, they were amazing to work with and have very well priced sit-down options (we did passed apps/ cocktail style which ended up being far more expensive than if we were to do a sit-down dinner).
They also don’t have a lot of rules/ regulations about what you can and cannot do, you can have your ceremony on site, the location is prime (on two subway lines and surrounded by hotels), and the venue itself (we used both the Bellair and the Cumberland rooms) was just renovated and looks amazing.
They’ve since added an open bar package too, as opposed to paying per drink. I’d reach out to them with your budget and see what can be done.. Our wedding was literally perfection, thanks in large part to their team.

rachel1986: Mildreds is a pretty space with decent food but their service is abhorrent on a regular basis, with the exception of one single waitress that I pray never leaves.. I love their burger.
We ruled them out almost immediately for this reason alone.
