Something Special for a Special Couple: What Eglinton Grand Offers as the Setting for Your Wedding and Reception
Have your dreams for your wedding and reception in Toronto often involved visions of cinematic elegance? Do you love the idea of being surrounded by a charm and elegance that is not always easy to come by these days? If so, you must visit Eglinton Grand and see what they have to offer in the way of space and amenities for your wedding day.
A Bit of History
The Eglinton Grand began life as the Eglinton Theatre and opened in 1936. Like the great theatres of the era, no expense was spared to make the setting as spacious and beautiful as possible. Many of the sophisticated features from those days provide the foundation for the elegance that is in evidence today. Much of the art deco design of the original structure is still intact and has been enhanced with other features that help to preserve the look. The result is a venue that serves as the perfect setting for everything from a casual affair to a formal occasion.
Ideas for Using the Space
There are several areas that can be reserved for your ceremony and the reception. If you are thinking in terms of a more intimate guest list for both events, consider taking a look at the Gallery. Designed for a capacity of no more than 220, you will have skylights to allow plenty of light into the space. There’s also an elevated area that serves as the focal point for the arrangement of the wedding party.
If you are planning on a larger guest list, the Ballroom will serve you well. Seating for up to 550 can be arranged. There are plenty of resources on hand, so you won’t have to arrange for a chair rental from an outside supplier. Thanks to the openness of the Ballroom, it will be easy enough to arrange the space to your liking.
If you prefer a smaller guest list for the ceremony and a larger one for the reception, consider reserving the Gallery and the Ballroom as part of a package. While the happy couple is exchanging their vows, the team taking care of the wedding catering in Toronto will be busy in the Ballroom making sure everything is in place before the ceremony ends.
All Types of Wedding Welcome
The Eglinton Grand is noted for being open to all types of weddings. From simple exchanges of vows to ceremonies that draw on the traditions of different faiths and cultures, the staff is happy to work with the couple to ensure the setting is ideal.
