Yes, we are licensed under the PEILCC. Alcoholic beverages are served until 11:30 Sunday -Thursday and 12:30 Friday & Saturday. Private alcohol is not permitted on our premises anytime indoors or outdoors except in the morning in the Bridal Suite & Parlour only.

Why do you provide security and what if we believe it is unnecessary?

Security is provided for your safety. PEI Liquor laws state that alcohol may only be consumed in designated areas. At The Grand Victorian we are fortunate to be licensed in our Ballroom, downstairs hallways/ bathrooms/, covered back deck. Security ensures that the consumption of alcohol takes place only in the designated areas, which ensures the wedding does not get shut down by the Liquor Commission.

Can we bring our own food and wine?

We do not allow outside food other than your own wedding cake or wedding cupcakes.

Homemade wine is not permitted. All wine selections need to come through the PEILCC website - the mark up on wine ordered is 100%. You need to let Marly or the venue manager know your wine selection requests 2 weeks prior to your wedding.
