We recommend a wedding cake specialist, Daphne Fernandes, who can be reached at 514.631.8416. We will cut and plate the cake during toasts at no additional cost, but any other type of cake service, i.e. cutting and serving to guests buffet style, would need to be discussed and will incur additional fees.
Confirming the Reservation
Once you have decided to use Thomson House as the venue for your reception, we require a non-refundable deposit of half of the room rental to guarantee that this day is reserved for you. The deposit may be transferred to another date with a (3) three month notice.
Once the menu has been decided and a firm estimate established, we require a second deposit two weeks prior to the reception, equivalent to approximately 50% of the estimated cost which is non-refundable.
The menu needs to be decided on a minimum of two and a half (2.5) weeks in advance of the reception, with the final numbers for choices (i.e. meat vs. vegetarian) needing to be given a minimum of ten (10) days in advance
Bar decisions can be made at the last minute unless you have a special wine order which needs to be in at least three (3) weeks in advance, preferably with first (1st) and second (2nd) choices.
*Please note that all prices are before tax. In the case of food and beverage services a gratuity of 15% will be added based on pre-tax amounts.
