There are some truly gorgeous places to get married in Calgary, Alberta. And, one of the top places has got to be River Cafe Calgary. This stunning wedding venue is located on Prince’s Island Park.

If you're interested in River Cafe weddings, keep reading. I've put together a guide on what weddings at the River Cafe are like and why this is one of the best wedding venues in Calgary.

Why the River Cafe is the Perfect Wedding Venue

Finding the perfect venue can really make or break your big day. That's because it leaves a lasting impression in your guests' minds, shows up in all your photos, and creates the backdrop for the first day of the rest of your life.

The River Cafe is a beautiful venue located right in Prince's Island Park. They have a guest capacity of 150 and serve delectable dishes that leave your mouth watering for more.

The Location of a River Cafe Wedding Ceremony

At River Cafe, you can choose to have either an indoor or outdoor wedding ceremony. The number of guests you want to have will influence which is the best choice for you. River Café offers capacity for a few different style weddings:

Semi-Private: 12 - 50 guests

Seated: 100 guests

Standing Cocktail Party: 150 guests

Outdoor Cocktail Reception: 250 guests

While indoor seating is limited, the outdoor spaces are just as beautiful as the inside of this rustic spot. That means that you'll have a great wedding that leaves nothing to be desired no matter whether you want a small or large event.

You can either opt for a daytime wedding which runs from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm or you can host an evening wedding from 5:00 pm to 1:00 am. Regardless, you'll be able to plan a wedding that works for your schedule and lets you make the most of the River Café.

Getting to River Cafe

Plus, it's only 25 minutes from Calgary International Airport, making it convenient for out-of-town guests. There are plenty of nearby hotels that guests can stay at, too.

The Wedding Dinner at River Cafe

At the River Cafe, you can either choose a buffet-style meal or plated dinner service. Either way, it costs $50 per plate. You're welcome to offer meal options to the vendors, which will just be added to your per-person cost.

River Cafe Catering Extras

On top of that, the café offers dining room decorations and extras. All of these are included in the cost of booking your wedding at the café:

After the dinner service, the floor is cleared to make room for dancing. Once the dancing is over and guests are starting to trickle home, the team at the River Café will help you clean up the event space so that you don't have to worry about tearing anything down.
