Capacity chart reflects the maximum in any given room, and does not reflect set up of additional items such as bars, dancefloors, staging or AV that may impact set up options. Please consult with a member of the sales team to discuss your requirements for the venue.
Your banquet hall is booked until 1:00 AM which means that last call from the bar is at 12:30 AM. Should you wish to have last call at 1:30 AM and the hall opened until 2:00 AM, you must pre-arrange with your wedding representative one week before your wedding day.
When should I confirm the final numbers of people and menu and wine selections?
All event menus and wine selections as well as the number of guests should be confirmed 3 weeks prior to your wedding date.
What if we would like to order a wine that is not on the Resort’s catering list?
We would be pleased to order a wine that is not on our catering list providing you make the request six weeks before your wedding. The order will be based on availability.
How early can we get into the banquet room to decorate?
We will guarantee access to the banquet room for decorating two (2) hours prior to the ceremony. Should the room be available before that we will be pleased to let you in if there is no interference with the wedding team preparing for the dinner.
What is your policy on open flame candles?
Open flame candles are not permitted however, votive and pillar candles are permitted provided that they are placed into an oversized glass container. An additional charge will apply if we are to supply the candles.
Are there restrictions on decorations?
We recommend real rose petals or bubbles be used in outdoor locations. The use of confetti, rice and fog machines is not permitted. Additional cleaning charges will apply if needed.
Is your event team able to help us set up our decorations?
We would be pleased to place menus and favours on your tables. Additional charges will apply for a more detailed setup request.
Are we able to bring in our own food?
Calabogie Peaks is a full catering facility and as such we do not permit anyone to bring in their own food. The exception is your wedding cake.
How do you accommodate guests that are vegetarian or have food allergies?

What is the SOCAN and RE:Sound Fees?

Re:Sound (Re:Sound Music Licensing Company) also collects a government approved royalty for music played at your event. Re:Sound collects on behalf of the owners of the sound recordings. Like Socan, Re:Sound’s royalty is based on the room capacity and whether or not your event involves dancing.
