A Night To Remember
What a wedding!!!
October 19,2019 will be a day remembered by many.
We couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding and it couldn't have been made possible without the Eglinton Grand venue and staff.
The venue is unique and has a beautiful history. All the details were perfectly place. The atmosphere had a certain je ne sais quoi about it.
However, the extraordinary team of people is what makes the venue what it is. They all have played such monumental part in making our day so very special.

Unique and beautiful venue!
We had such an amazing wedding at the Eglinton Grand, it was everything we’d ever dreamed. The food was delicious and everyone worked together so well to make sure everything went smoothly. The theatre itself is absolutely beautiful and very spacious. We loved the added flair of the personalized marquee, red carpet, spaces for posters we created, and up lighting in the ballroom. Teresa did everything she could to make our dreams come true, which can be difficult in a pandemic, but everything was a dream. Who wants to go to another generic banquet hall when you can have an old theatre?Sent on 22/09/2021

A Dream Come True!
Our wedding could not have gone more perfectly !
We truly felt like movie stars! Only in my dreams would I think my name would really be on a marquee.
We had so many guests who raved about the uniqueness of our venue and how much they loved it and it's elegance. I really feel like this venue set our wedding apart from others.
During the planning process Teresa and Sarah were great at answering all our questions and helping us construct our perfect day. They were very flexible and were always pleasant with my many emails and meeting requests.
The food was delicious, our guests agree, and there was plenty of it!
On the night of the manager Joe was so helpful and was always checking in with us and our guests to see if everything was going smoothly.Sent on 29/01/2020

Looking for a venue? Your search is over.
If you’re planning a wedding in the GTA, and you're looking for a beautiful, one-of-a-kind venue, we would highly recommend The Eglinton Grand. So much of what you need and want is already built in. Here are a few of the perks:
-They have an elegant room for the ceremony
-The ballroom has the "majestic flair" for your reception
-The kitchen staff puts together wonderful menu options
-There are multiple bars for different parts of your evening
-You can choose custom lighting and there is unique, beautiful decor all over the venue.
-If you choose to use their optional add-on features you can really take your wedding to the next level!!! The marquee, movie poster boxes, and red carpet make sure your guests know they’re in for a special occasion before they’ve even entered the building.
Rebecca was incredibly helpful and ensured our entire day was well looked after. She made sure that our slightly unusual schedule and particular touches were incorporated. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and our guests. Everything was like a dream. Make sure you add The Eglinton Grand to your list of places to consider. Im willing to bet it will be your first choice - you will not be disappointed!Sent on 29/10/2019
