Hi guys, getting married mid next year and have a few venues remaining on the shortlist.. Some are there that stretch our budget, others are cheaper but need your guidance if they're still good food etc etc...
Anyway - who has recently been to:
- Roselyn Court
- Regal Ballroom
- Flemington (racecourse, but Peter Rowland catering)
- Quat Quatta
- Metropolis House (now a restaurant but still interested)
- Royce Hotel
- RACV City
- The Trust
I know its a long list - but not kidding when I tell you we got packages and quotes from almost 40 places. We have about 150 people, am looking at Fridays and Winter to reduce cost a little...
Thanks in Advance!
Hi dont worry about the long list we also saw about forty places before deciding. We got married at Ripponlea Estate catered by Peter Rowland in May 2010 (Ripponlea is gorgeous) and I could not recommend them enough. The food was amazing, the service and professionalism is five star - they are so organised - they arrange your whole reception as you want it - completely stress free, nothing is too much to ask and they always respond to any questions. So Flemington racecourse would be wonderful.
Quat Quatta was our second choice but we just loved Ripponlea - however I know their food is nice and they are also professional.
Us girls and my family stayed at the Royce Hotel the night before the wedding and we got the most amazing photos in their wonderful corridors, foyer and mirror room - the wedding album looks fantastic due to their art deco look! We had breakfast here and ate in their Dish restaurant. Food is also good here, not quite in the same league as Peter Rowland. But the hotel staff are very nice.
I have also been to a wedding at the RACV Club in the city - again another great choice - food is nice and professional staff. Good luck it all depends on whether you want vintage, art deco or modern look. Quat Quatta is extremely different to say Flemington Racecourse. I hope that helps - have you looked at Ripponlea? If you end up choosing The Royce let me know and I will email you some photos
