Mission Accomplished!

Ladies (and Gents).

I have found and booked a venue! It’s a venue I checked out 8 months ago… and finally decided to just go for it! I don’t know why i waited so long. I was immediately in love with the space when i saw it online, and in real life it’s even better!

My fiance and i picked a date last weekend and without a moments hesitation i emailed the venue to check if the date we picked was still available and as luck would have it, it was available! Thank goodness, cause we’ve been engaged for 18 months already and we finally picked a date. If the space wasn’t available. I think we would have just had everyone over to our house instead! haha.

And the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the venue is the Rosehill Venue | Lounge.
We’ve booked a date for November of this year… I better get motoring! Tomorrow hopefully i will be checking one more thing off my ‘to do’ list, by picking my wedding dress! If you remember I went shopping back in October, and there were a few dresses that pulled forward as the front runners. I’ve since narrowed it down to two and i think tomorrow is the day to finally pull the trigger and pick THE dress. Yikes!

Here’s the scoop on the Rosehill. It’s located at Yonge/St Clair. Easy access by subway, and literally right next door there is a Green P parking garage that costs $5 for parking. You can pre-pay for your guests or your guests can pay, it’s up to you. The venue fee obviously varies on the time of year and day of the week. We’re getting married in their high season so the venue fee is $3500 for a Saturday. The fee includes the furniture on site, which are some loungey couches, there’s gold chiavari chairs (90 i think?), they have round tables  on site as well, and it also includes the tea lights that are around the venue and if you’re having an open bar it includes the fee for the bartenders. You have the use of the whole venue, including the very adorable classic smoker’s lounge the the basement that is often used as a Bridal Suite. Other perks are they don’t have any preferred caterers. They do have a list of places they recommend, but there’s no penalty for picking your own. Another thing i really liked was their bar package. We had decided early on that we wanted an open bar, all night. And the Rosehill offers two packages, the basic for $6.50 per person, per hour and that includes standard bar rail, mixers, beer, and a red and white house wine. And it’s all customizable (within reason). If you have a particular wine you really enjoy, you can have the Rosehill order it in and it will be served as the house wine, same with the beer selection, as long as the beer you pick is comparable in price to the beers they serve, there will be no extra charge.

Overall i have a really good feeling about this venue. I did a lot of research before hand and every review i read only had wonderful things to say about the venue and their staff.

So, here we go folks! Time to start planning!

  1. Stumbled upon your blog after doing a Google search for “Rosehill” — as we’ve just booked our wedding there for March 2013 — and have now read your whole blog start to finish. Well done – what a charming read! I’m entertained and inspired by all your discoveries (and thanks SO MUCH for sharing for all the other T-dot brides!). I’ll be following and checking in as you gear up for your big day — keep the posts a-comin’! 😉

  2. Hi ladies,

    Was contemplating a wedding for 2015 March/April/May.
    It’s very hard to find reviews online, I’ve only seen the ones in 2010-2011 and this is the most recent 2012 review/comment I’ve stumbled upon.

    Any reviews after your experiences with Rosehill?
    Has anything change since you last posted this?

    I look forward to your response! 🙂

    • Hi. Thanks for stumbling upon my blog!
      I absolutely loved the Rosehill. I couldn’t have imagined a better place for our wedding. It was perfectly suited for the very relaxed adn informal vibe we were going for. We did very minimal decor just some vases and flowers and table clothes on high top cruiser tables. Eric was so easy to work with-hopefully he’s still there! Our guests also loved the venue easy access to transit, parking right next door and only a 10 min cab ride to hotels in Yorkville.
      good luck with your planning!
