The Wedgewood Hotel
for the Budget Bride

The Wedgewood Hotel for the Budget Bride

In the heart of downtown Vancouver is an opulent hotel called the Wedgewood Hotel & Spa. What sets this hotel apart from others is that it is a family-run boutique hotel filled with fine antique pieces and original works of art, all reflecting owner Eleni Skalbania’s eye for detail. For those who want an intimate wedding reception with an emphasis on fine dining, this hotel is an affordable option. Catering Sales Manager Jill Unger gave me a tour and here’s what I found.

The space they have available for banquets is the Liaisons Room. Its maximum capacity is 66 guests for a sit-down function or 100 guests for a cocktail reception. There is a room rental of $650 for this room; however, if you meet a minimum food and beverage spend of $3,000, the rental will be reduced by 50% and waived if minimums exceed $5,000 before tax and gratuity (note that these minimums may change depending on time of year and type of event). This is easily attainable with their minimum dinner charge of $65 per guest.

If you like to party, DJ’s and live musicians are welcome but you must have a dance floor installed for an extra charge. The Liaisons Room does not need much decorating at all. It exudes elegance and its antique fireplace and beautiful Renaissance tapestries give it character. What will give this room an even more romantic feel is to have candles lit at your tables. Included with the booking are white linens for the tables, glassware, cutlery, dinnerware and napkins for the tables, custom menus, tealights, small orchid centerpieces, and an easel for your sign or seating chart. Setup times for this room are flexible, it just has to be mutually agreed upon and depends on scheduling.

If you want an even more intimate setting, the Library Room inside the award-winning Bacchus Restaurant and Lounge can hold 18 of your closest friends and family for a private dinner. There is no rental rate for this if you are booking the space for dinner, all they require is a minimum of 14 guests. This room may be booked for ceremonies as well and is subject to a fee.

For more information on this space or to set an appointment for a viewing, contact catering@wedgewoodhotel.com or call 604-608-5303. Huge thanks to Catering Manager Jill Unger for letting me have a look at this gorgeous space.
