My fiancé and I have decided that a small family-only wedding ceremony and reception is the only way to go. The problem we now face is deciding where we should have it!
Ideally we're looking for a nicer restaurant in Calgary, Canmore, or Banff that has a private room suitable for as few as 12 people but also large enough to accommodate as many as 22. If we could also do a short ceremony there then all the better.
But there is a complication: Due to scheduling issues we will need to have our wedding shortly before this upcoming Christmas and on a Saturday night. Yes, prime Christmas party season. Needless to say we'd like to book a place sooner than later!
Unfortunately we won't know the exact number of guests until closer to the date since some some of our guests are from out of town and can't commit to coming just yet. Price range is fairly flexible but the ultra-fine dining restaurants may be a bit out of our price range. But they may still be worth looking into. In terms of ambiance, neither of us are fans of the super modern look or of the "dead animals hanging on every wall" look.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Any help would be hugely appreciated!!!
I can't wait until all of this wedding planning stuff is over :)
