Here are some amazing small wedding venues in Edmonton.
Yorath House (13110 Buena Vista Road NW)
If you’re looking for a homey small wedding venue in Edmonton, but don’t want to host your wedding at your actual house or apartment, you need to see Yorath House. The two-storey 1949 home has a bit of retro flavour and features a grand stone fireplace, exposed brick walls, and an expansive patio. You can make use of the entire building on your big day and the yard (if you want to add an open-air element to your ceremony or reception). It’s large enough to fit up to 56 guests, but you may want to make your guest list even shorter to squeeze everyone into a single room.
XIX Nineteen (5940 Mullen Way NW)
Head on up to the 18th floor of the Hyatt at the Bellevue and you’ll find a stylish restaurant by the name of XIX Nineteen. The fine dining restaurant offers cozy, stylish surroundings, with rich wood and leather-heavy decor. Of course, it also has a killer menu and will make your wedding dinner one to remember (so it’s a perfect fit if you and your partner are total foodies). As for space, the dining room has enough to fit up to 80 guests but definitely works with smaller groups, too. Oh, and if your guests need accommodations, just reserve a block of rooms at the Hyatt - they won’t even need to leave the building to get from your reception to their beds.
The Bennett Centre (9703 94 St NW)
Head into the heart of Edmonton’s river valley parks system and you’ll find The Bennett Centre, a gorgeous indoor/outdoor venue. The interior is a blank canvas with floor-to-ceiling windows, but outside is where the real magic happens. It has plenty of green space just waiting to be transformed for your big day, with manicured lawns and beautiful, natural vistas. The venue even has a canopy tent available that can fit up to 80 guests, which is a huge help if you’re planning an open-air marquee celebration.
Ruth’s Chris Steak House (9990 Jasper Avenue)
For all the carnivores, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is a natural pick. Other than the guarantee of a drool-worthy steak dinner, you’ll get a gorgeous space to say your ‘I dos’ and celebrate. It has several event rooms available, including two remodelled bank vaults and three private and semi-private spaces. Each has a traditional steak house look, with a warm colour palette and plenty of wood. So it’s great for those who want something classic and classy. As for capacity, the largest room has enough space to fit 100 guests.
Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Edmonton (One Thornton Court 99 Street & Jasper Avenue)
Dream of tying the knot in a hotel wedding venue in Edmonton, but don’t want to splurge on a massive grand ballroom? Well, no worries, you don’t have to! If you’re opting for a smaller celebration, the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Edmonton has got you covered. It has several elegantly decorated spaces to choose from, with capacities ranging from ten to 55 guests. As an added bonus, all the first-floor event rooms, look out onto the North Saskatchewan River and have floor-to-ceiling windows, so you’ll have a great backdrop for your photos.
Varscona Hotel on Whyte (8208 106 Street)
Varscona Hotel on Whyte is another great choice if you’re on the hunt for a hotel wedding venue with petite function spaces. It has three event rooms available for rental: the Rutherford Room (capacity of 120 seated guests), Thomas Bennett Room (capacity of 80 seated guests), and the John Walter Room (capacity of 40 seated guests). All of them have an elegant, modern vibe and can easily be transformed to suit any wedding theme and colour scheme. Bonus: they can take care of almost all your rentals and offer full set up and clean up, so you don’t have to worry about getting everything done on your big day.
Foundry Room (12021-102 Avenue NW)
If you’ve been lusting over Pinterest wedding photos of exposed brick walls, concrete floors, and metal accents, the Foundry Room will be right up your alley. The space is located right inside of the Oliver Exchange Building and is a loft-like blank canvas that has everything that anyone who loves the industrial-chic wedding style could ever want. The space is totally flexible, and can hold up to 150 guests, but can be reconfigured for more intimate events with 100 guests or less. P.S. This is a full-service venue, meaning the staff can take care of everything from your decor to your menu (and every other bell and whistle in between).
