    We love DX!

    Design Exchange is truly a unique venue with lots to offer. The historic trading floor is absolutely stunning with super high ceilings and original murals. We didn't feel the need to decorate the space at all, except for floral arrangements for the tables. We also used the lobby space for our cocktail hour, which was really fun because the guests could look at the design exhibits, and the sleek and modern space provided a nice contrast to the art deco/streamline moderne style of the trading floor. If you are looking for a historic, yet polished space with lots of personality, look no further!

    Michelle and the rest of the DX staff were great. They were very attentive and always willing to help, including when we needed an extra printout of my parents' speech right before they were about to take the mic. We're so happy we held our wedding reception at Design Exchange.

    Beautiful venue, it was the old Toronto Stock exchange building. They accommodated our ceremony, cocktail and reception, which is ideal for all wedding guests. The space is beautiful and the wedding coordinators that worked there were a dream. They made everything so easy and stress-free, Michelle probably made choosing Design exchange worth it.
    The only request, during the reception, if they could change the direction of one of the speakers, our wedding table sat underneath the murals, and the speakers on the walls were sort of facing towards the centre, so during the speeches, my husband and I found a slight echo, but all the other guests were hearing fine.
    Overall, very happy with the venue. It was also nice for all the out-of-town guests, so many hotel selections and they could walk back.
    We looked at a lot of venues, we found Michelle at Design Exchange was the most professional and help us understand the wedding process.
