Made everything easy
Josh and the rest of his staff were professional and easy to work with. They have lots of experience running weddings so they are able to help guide you if you don’t have an exact vision on how you want events to go but are also willing to work with you to bring the ideas you do have to life. Also many vendors are familiar with them at this point so that can further ease the stress day of. Setup was on us to provide, but the transition to reception and takedown was done by the staff and we were able to pick it up the following morning.
The food was a 4-course meal which included a dessert and was obviously fantastic, everyone that came was raving about it. Dietary restrictions are well cared for and they will make individual servings if needed, which we had a few. They also can accommodate any form of bar style including tickets at any price you would like, open bar, or fully on guests to pay and they can use cash or card. Once again, their flexibility was awesome.
All our guests LOVED the venue!
10/10 AMAZING. Best value for money without feeling cheap.
1. You don't feel like you're getting nickel-and-dimed over every little thing, Parlour has a minimum spend to book the entire place and that's it. I was getting so annoyed by all of the venues that add an extra charge for every stupid little thing; like charging for early access, cake cutting, sound system rentals, cleanup fees. I hated having to have my guard up all the time when talking to other venues just to make sure I wasn't getting ripped off. Table and chair rentals, linens, bartenders, servers, AV equipment were all included at Parlour!
2. Parlour took care of coordinating the rental chairs, table linens and they did all of the setup of our tables (including table numbers, table runners, menus, name cards, and other decorations). They also took care of all of the takedown. My husband and I just showed up and had an awesome time, literally 0 stress.
3. The food was seriously unbeatable for the price! We got appetizers, a 3 course family style meal, dessert, and a late night meal for the same price per person that we would have paid for a bland chicken buffet at some of the other places we almost went with
4. Great service! The Parlour team was way more responsive than any of the other caterers/ venues we spoke with. Mackenzie (nickname Kenzie) from the Parlour team did all of the work that we normally would have had to hire a day-of-coordinator for, at no additional charge! Plus, all of the other staff who worked our wedding were awesome.
In my opinion Parlour is the best kept secret when in comes to reception venues in Edmonton, if you're hosting less than 150 people I definitely recommend checking them out!
Christine is wonderful
Perfect for smaller/more intimate weddings
October 2022 wedding
The staff were amazing and so accommodating of our needs and our vision. They made sure our guests were well taken care of and all allergies were easily accommodated.
We loved the fact that our ceremony and reception was in one place and that the price of the venue included your food and drinks. We didn’t need to hire bar tenders or a catering company and it just really made it stress free.
They happily customized the menu for us and made sure allergies were noted. We had signature cocktails and there was never a line up at the bar as they had servers bringing around drinks and enough bar tenders to keep things moving.
All of our family and friends really enjoyed it and we are so happy we chose such a unique venue that we are able to go back to and create more memories at.
