"Just wanted to let you know we had the best time, and were told by our guests that it was one of the best weddings they've been to.
The food was amazing!!
I wish I was able to eat it all. Haha, I was so sad about the cinnamon nachos.
Thank you for all the planning and help the day of! It went so smoothly, couldn't have asked for a better day. Even the sun came out!" 😊

FOOD & BEVERAGE
With the exception of specialty cakes, all food and beverages served must be provided by Pretty Estates Resort. Banquet food is not permitted to leave the banquet facilities.
In order to confirm your selections, please provide your menu and wine choices to the Events Coordinator 30 days prior to your event. The client is responsible for making sure this information is received on time. Modifications to menus must be arranged with the Events Coordinator. Children between the ages of 6 and 12 are billed at 50% of the buffet menu price. Children 5 and under do not have a cost associated with the buffet dinner. Regular, per person pricing applies for all plated meals served to children.
It is the responsibility of the client to advise the final guaranteed number for the banquet to the Events Coordinator by noon, 30 days in advance. If no guarantee is received, Pretty Estates Resort will charge for the number of persons estimated on the catering contract or the actual number attending, whichever is greater.
In accordance with BC liquor laws, all alcoholic beverages must be purchased by Pretty Estates Resort through the BC liquor Distribution Branch, and consumed in licensed areas.
As Pretty Estates does not have a bakery department, speciality cakes must be purchased through outside vendors. A $2 per person charge will be applied to your account for cutting and plating the cake.
Neither the contractee nor their guests are permitted to bring any alcoholic beverages onto the property or to take alcoholic beverages purchased at Pretty Estates Resort outside the designated consumption areas as outlined by the Liquor Control Board. The organizer accepts all responsibility for any resulting injury or damage.
By law, if there is dancing or the playing of music we must collect and remit a SOCAN fee (Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada). Based on our liquor licence all music must stop when the bar closes.
