@MsGinkgo:  I live in Mississauga too!

I’ve booked the Glenerin Inn for September 22, 2013 to get married. Before we picked our venue, I looked at a lot of places and Estates of Sunnybrook was one of them. I decided not to go with them because they are very expensive and they have minimums you have to meet. I’m have a small wedding so it definitely wasnt worth it for me. Have you looked at other places?

We had our reception at EoS in October of last year. I highly recommend them. I had a great (I mean absolutely perfect and wonderful haha) experience there. All of the staff are amazing. Our wedding was small so we held it at McLean house (actually our wedding was partially small because of the venue…I fell in love with McLean house and had to have it there). 80 people total. I don’t regret anything that we paid for the venue, because it was perfect…and we wanted a lot of food at our wedding so meeting the minimum wasn’t an issue.

 

About the food: it is amazing. When we were choosing vendors pretty much all of our vendors commented how amazing the food at EoS was. I think some of them wanted to be a part of our wedding partially so they could enjoy the food there again lol.

Anyway, go for it! You won’t regret it. Smile

(ETA) Added bonus: all the profit from events held at EoS goes to medical research at Sunnybrook. That was huge for us. We were delighted that the profit was going toward such an amazing cause!

@MsGinkgo: Regarding Vaughan Estate, when we had a tour (we toured both Vaughan and McLean because my parents wanted a big wedding) she did tell us that two weddings can be held there at once. But there are separate entrances, if you are worrying about that? I’m not sure if you’ve had a tour yet, but I would ask about this further if it’s something that worries you. Honestly, the ballrooms are very separate and the signage is pretty clear so I don’t think you would have to worry!

@MsGinkgo:  Since you mentioned your Fiance likes the idea of a mansion/ estate, check out the Paletta Mansion in Burlington. The location is amazing, it’s overlooking the lake so it’s very nice.  The mansion has such a unique feel to it, and it would be charming to get married in. For weddings they require you to book both of the two floors, so if you need room they can accomodate.

Good luck in your search!

@Toronto_CDolly:  Sorry to get off topic, but we have booked Mclean House for our wedding and will also need to refine our guest list a little to fit the space. We were told 72 people max (8 each at 9 tables). Did you have more than 8 people at all, or some of the tables, or did you fit in an extra table? Did you find everyone had enough space at the tables, and to move around the tables? Thank you!

@pennylane123:  We had a few tables that had more than 8 (the ones at the top of the “L” and one near the entrance to the Conservatory Ballroom). We never went up to 10 at any of our tables, but we had a few tables with 9 definitely. They did not want us to do this at first, but it turned out perfectly fine since not EVERY table had more than 8 and we tried to do it at the tables where it made the most sense. For example, we had 5 children at our wedding (family) and 2 of the tables that had more than 8 were tables at which they were seated. Children do not occupy as much space, obviously, so it made sense. I’d definitely say if you need to squeeze in a few extra guests just have some tables of 9. Jennifer wouldn’t even let us consider having an extra table…or a sweetheart table (which we were originally trying to work in). It was for the best though, if there had been an extra table/sweetheart table it would have made things cramped and would possibly have been quite uncomfortable for our guests.

 

Good luck…you’ve picked an awesome venue and I’m sure you’ll have an amazing day! Smile

New to Weddingbee but this thread caught my attention. How did you find the late start time at the Estates (6pm or later)? I’m wondering if you felt rushed for photos or set-up? And when did you start dinner? We’re considering booking Vaughan Estate but a tad concerned about not getting access to the venue until 5pm.
