Hotel Grand Pacific is a charming venue based in Victoria, British Columbia, that would be ideal for a variety of wedding celebrations. Suitable for those who would like to enjoy their reception in a separate location to their ceremony, it boasts a luxurious style fitting of deluxe festivities. With options to suit diverse preferences, couples can select the event space that best suits their tastes.
Facilities and Capacity
After the couple of honour has been officially declared as newlyweds, they can make their way to the Hotel Grand Pacific to begin the celebrations. As everyone arrives at the property, they can delight at its elegant exterior, tall trees, and colorful floral displays. Offering views of the marina, it is an ideal location for a newlywed stroll or simply as somewhere for guests to take in the air. Inside, there is even more to admire. Throughout, the decor is defined by elegance, sophistication, and elevated design. Chandeliers, linen drapes, polished flooring, and expansive spaces create an airy and welcoming ambience. A cocktail reception can easily be accommodated in one of the event areas before the all-important meal takes place.
The largest space available is the Vancouver Island Ballroom. With some 3,000 square feet to make use of, up to 180 people can enjoy the plush interiors and relaxing setting. When arranged with tables and chairs, it becomes suitable for a refined dining experience. Here, the waterfront can be admired from a wraparound terrace in between courses. The wedding party can dance to music after the last meal has been savoured thanks to a dance floor. Pender Island Ballroom would suit more low-key events, but it is equally as appealing as its larger counterpart. The most amount of people that can fit here is 80, so it is still expansive enough for the couple’s nearest and dearest to join in.
When couples book the Hotel Grand Pacific, they are treated to a comprehensive bundle that includes a variety of convenient features. Upon arrival, everyone can treat themselves to a selection of hors d’oeuvres before taking their seats for a three-course meal. Linens, flatware, glassware, china, barware, and more are also included. An event planning service can make the preparation process run much smoother for the newlyweds. For an extra high-end touch, a chocolate fountain can be provided for a fun experience. A podium, projector, and sound systems are also included as standard.
The culinary service at Hotel Grand Pacific is certainly comprehensive. A variety of serving styles are available including buffet, plated meals, stations, family-style dishes, and more. Their fare includes braised beef short rib, roasted salmon, grilled steak, and a variety of other delectable offerings. Beer, wine, signature drinks, and Champagne may be served as accompaniments or standalone refreshments.

We were absolutely thrilled with the service we received from both the event planner James and the hotel staff. James responded to all our questons quickly and was very helpful with providing options. We chose a price per person option which worked out very well for our intimate group and there were absolutely no hidden fees. The buffet food was fantastic & several of our guests raved to us about it after the wedding. Our reception went off without a hitch.Sent on 02/12/2018

A day to remember
We got married May 2018. Everything was so amazing and having the wedding planner included, who work at the hotel, was great because she knew so much about everything.Sent on 28/11/2018
They looked after every detail so that I was able to enjoy the day.
The guest raved about the food for weeks after the wedding and they were very accommodating with food allergies and preferences.
The bridal suite was also amazing and with plenty of room for everyone.
The central location was great because it was easily accessible for out of town guests or in town guests needing to make it home safely.
I would highly recommend them.
