Couples who would rather quaff a microbrew than sip a fine wine, and who are looking for a laid-back pub vibe for their reception can always go downtown. Pubs like Local 522 and other establishments that cater to the weekday working crowd are more likely to give up a Saturday night for a reception than those located in the city’s weekend hot zones.

One of Calgary’s favourite Italian eateries is fast becoming one of Calgary’s most-desirable wedding venues. The lovely back terrace is an ideal spot for a small ceremony, weather permitting. Inside, the room will fit up to 70 people for a sit-down dinner. Larger guest lists can be accommodated with a festival-food-style cocktail party set-up. Source.
With over 40 years in business, the Newport Grill on Lake Bonavista is an exquisite lakeside venue within the city. It is ideal for hosting small intimate receptions in their private west wing as they provide a range of meal services from plated dinners, buffets to cocktails. Source.
Osteria De Medici
Want to class it up a bit with a sit-down meal? The Osteria de Medici Restaurant is one of Calgary’s finest dining establishments – and they also host wedding receptions and wedding rehearsal dinners. Source.
Over the years Teatro has had the honour of hosting beautiful wedding services and memorable receptions of all types and sizes. They can accommodate private services and seated or cocktail style receptions for an intimate wedding party for as few as four as well as celebrations for 200 or more. Source.
The Ranche Restaurant
Originally this 1896 home was William Roper Hull’s. Now it is on the edge of Fish Creek Provincial Park and one of CRMR’s best restaurants. Rent the entire 3,000-square-foot home or keep the party contained to a grand salon or parlour. Weddings can spill out onto the grounds for the ceremony and the best part is the Rocky Mountain cuisine that can be served at a brunch, lunch or dinner wedding. It’s a little bit of country in the city. Source.
Q Haute Cuisine
The grandeur of the Dining Room lends itself to exquisitely elegant weddings, particularly for couples with gourmet palates. The loveliest weddings at Q Haute begin with a ceremony in their Q Room (seats 70) followed by a post ceremony reception in their lobby lounge and finally, a superb seated lunch or dinner prepared by Chef Michele Aurigemma, in the Main Dining Room (seats 130).

Chef’s Table’s first advantage is that it is in Kensington Riverside Inn so guests will never have to navigate Calgary’s roads and everyone can stumble safely into their four-star bed. The restaurant’s second advantage is it four diamond AAA rating, which translated means the food is really good. Up to sixty guests can be hosted for a ceremony and sit down meal in the dining room and lounge. Source.
You are going to want to host your wedding at Rouge in the summer. That will give you access to the big garden and patio when the flowers and herbs are in full bloom. Inside, the 1891 red house is divided into galleries and parlours. Choose one for an intimate affair or take over the entire house to fit up to 135 people for a stand-up reception or 80 people for a seated dinner. Source.
If you can’t decide whether to get married in a park or a restaurant, you can have your wedding cake and eat it too at River Café. This Prince’s Island gem is steeped in rustic charm and the surrounding park and river settings provide endless photo ops. Source.
