Here is a guide to the ultimate Alloy Dining wedding:

Alloy Restaurant Dining Location and Venue

Alloy Dining Restaurant is located just ten minutes from downtown Calgary. (The perfect location for an after-party, perhaps?) It offers on-site parking, which is a much-appreciated perk for your guests.

While it does not offer on-site accommodations, there are countless hotel options within minutes of the restaurant. They provide a close stay for your guests and a convenient option for groom or the bride getting ready on the big day.

Indoor Weddings Ceremony at Alloy Dining Restaurant

If any restaurant can successfully pull off casual elegance, it's Alloy Dining.

The dining room is arranged with pure white, u-shaped booths surrounding round, wooden tables. Tall, curved stems of soft pink flowers stand close by, and through them, you can see the decorative wall panels. The overall color scheme offers hints of rose gold and ivory, a combination sure to evoke feelings of warmth and relaxation, here are some ceremony ideas for larger or smaller weddings.

The dining chairs' classic space-aged style gives off a 1960s-mod vibe, while the hanging bulb lights add an industrial flair. The entire setup exudes elegance without being pretentious. It's the perfect balance of class, charm, and understated luxury.

Alloy Dining Restaurant is the ideal venue for a smaller, more intimate wedding where the guests can feel pampered without the pressure of strict, fine-dining etiquette.

Outdoor Weddings Ceremony at Alloy Dining Restaurant

Imagine reciting your vows in a calm, outdoor oasis, accompanied by the sounds of a waterfall designed by a wedding planner. Your guests stand close by on a tiled courtyard patio, where scattered tables and woven chairs once stood. Lush greenery and bubbling fountains are a serene addition as sunlight peeks through the pergola overhead.

Welcome to Alloy Dining's garden patio — it's the stuff wedding dreams are made of.

You would never know this relaxing, outdoor space is smack in the middle of an industrial area with the amount of privacy and tranquility it provides. Once the tables are moved, it creates a picturesque setting for a wedding ceremony or reception. You can hang some string lights, lanterns, or twisting vines from the pergola for guests to admire while gazing at the stars.

The garden patio also provides ramp access and a view of the restaurant's interior through floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Alloy Dining Restaurant Menu

It's only fitting that Alloy's dinner menu would match its high-quality atmosphere. As stated by Chef/Owners Uri Heilik and Rogelio Herrera, their cuisine "will indulge your imagination and offer an escape for your senses."

Alloy's menu is known for infusing local ingredients with global influences, including Asian, Indian, and Mediterranean flavors. Take the organic salmon entree, for example. Its description includes lemongrass coconut sauce, forbidden rice, passionfruit emulsion, and a bok choy slaw.

If poultry is your go-to, the roasted chicken is served with sour cherry bbq sauce, along with serrano chili and white corn fritters. For red meat lovers, the beef short rib is topped with a tomato balsamic reduction, and the Alberta beef tenderloin is paired with Atlantic lobster risotto.

Vegetarians will enjoy the gnocchi with black truffle buttercream and the roasted carrot bisque. You won't regret indulging your sweet tooth with the chocolate flourless brownie topped with bourbon caramel sauce, or the Yuzu cheesecake with a peach and sake marmalade. (Is your mouth watering yet?)

Alloy Dining offers both plated and buffet service for your wedding. It's also a fantastic location for a rehearsal dinner.
