Crystal Ballroom weddings one of three choices at Omni King Edward Hotel.

Once upon a time The King Edward, Toronto’s first luxury hotel, was renowned for its beautiful Crystal Ballroom that was named after its luxurious chandeliers. At the height of the Roaring Twenties and until it closed in the 1970s, the Ballroom was the city’s most sought after space for grand society affairs, galas, debutante balls and weddings.

The most famous big bands of the 1920s to the 1940s including Duke Ellington, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman entertained its guests. The Prince of Wales and the British Prime Minister were honored at a lavish state dinner in the Crystal Ballroom.

Now, after a $40 million dollar renovation of the hotel the Crystal Ballroom has undergone a revival.

The design of the new ballroom has been influenced by the original which featured ornate moldings, 8-metre high coffered ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the city. What has been handsomely preserved is its unique orchestra balcony which overlooks the Crystal Ballroom and oversized chandeliers. The ballroom is now a generous 5,000 square foot space with a new permanent bar and can accommodate up to 300 guests in style.

It is a dream venue for a wedding. Old world charm meets modern luxury.

Couples planning a wedding can choose among three wedding packages. The Silver, Platinum or the Crystal Wedding Package. The Crystal is where you can step back in time and be one of the first to book the iconic historic ballroom. 

All three wedding packages offer a full complement of wedding services. They range from hosting an engagement reception to gathering the ladies for a high tea shower. The teas are served in the hotel’s lobby or in a private suite.

Among other great perks are a five-hour open bar, wine service with dinner, and a three-four course dinner. And depending on the package, a complimentary suite on the wedding night. And in the morning complimentary breakfast for two in the suite. As well as customized souvenir menus, and two monogrammed luxury bathrobes.
