If you’re looking to have your wedding in Montreal, it can be a little overwhelming given the number of options available for reception halls in Montreal. A lot of options also means you have to ask the right questions and think about the right things in order to narrow it down to the right choice. Today, we’ll look at some of the things you should be considering when selecting amongst the various wedding halls in Montreal.
- Interior Spacing
Once you have an idea of the turnout for your event, it’s important to find out how your venue’s capacity can address the expected attendance. Be sure to inquire about how tables can be set up and what your layout options are. Try to get at least 2-3 options in front of you, and make sure to ask about the limitations of each capacity. In most cases, the venue will make the best recommendation for you based on previous events they’ve had.

- Payment Terms
This is important if you’re working on a tight budget, or if the way you’re investing towards your wedding requires a specific sequence to be followed. Find out when a deposit is expected and when a full balance is due. It’s not ideally where we want anyone to be, but it’s absolutely worth knowing ahead of time what the terms and conditions are in the event of a cancelation or delay. Be sure to find out how the refunding or charges work in either case.
- Extra Spacing
If you’re still in search of bridal suites or somewhere to get pictures taken, feel free to consult with your point of contact at the venue of your choice. It’ll simplify your life and you’ll be dealing with guaranteed quality. It doesn’t hurt to ask if you can get a referral discount since you’d be signing up for their services immediately.
- Available Services
Find out what the full extent of capabilities your venue can offer. At Time, we offer turnkey solutions for all event needs. We have the right personnel on board to deliver whatever needs you may have. While we’ve got all bases covered, we can’t comment on behalf of other venues.

- Health & Safety
This is self-explanatory. Make sure whoever is staffed on the big night is trained in CPR and First Aid. No half-measures.
- Catering and Bar
If you’ve got a specific diet that needs to be accommodated, whether it be kosher or vegetarian meals, be sure to find out if there’s flexibility in designing a menu that meets your needs. And as for the bar, find out if open bar is an option. It’s also worth inquiring about their mixology capabilities to see if you can serve your guests unique cocktails. Just in case you weren’t aware, we do offer catering services by the renown Chef Zoumis.
