Frequently Asked Questions
1. What items do we need to supply?
The Estates of Sunnybrook is a full-service facility, and we take care of most of the details of your event. However, if you desire any of the following services, you should arrange them independently: musicians, wedding cake, floral or other special decorations, photographer, and officiant.
We would be happy to provide you with a list of companies that we recommend, however, you are free to use any company you wish for these items.
You will also need to provide place cards or a chart to designate seating for your guests. Your Catering representative will discuss with you the best way to do this, depending on the type of meal and event that you have chosen.
2. How far in advance do we need to book?
We suggest booking your ceremony and reception site as soon as possible. Popular dates may be booked 12-18 months in advance.
3. How are the rooms generally set?
McLean House is generally set with round tables for 8 people. A round table is also used for the head table at McLean House. The rooms in Vaughan Estate are usually set with round tables for 10 people, and may accommodate a rectangular head table if your numbers are not at the maximum.
4. Can we get ready there?
Each of our Ballrooms has its own powder room for changing and freshening up. The host and his or her family or wedding party have access one hour prior to the scheduled arrival time of their guests.
5. Can we bring in our own homemade desserts?
You may bring in your own "celebration" cake, where there will be a service charge. Otherwise, all desserts are prepared by our chefs. Your Catering representative will be able to provide you with more details when you meet with them.
