    I am having my wedding at Meridian Banquets on July 30, 2011 (Around the corner).

    I love my venue, since the rooms are nice, and they have really fair prices and the service i have got since day one has been awesome, and  the tasting was awesome.

    The only negative thing is that only deposit is allowed to be paid on credit card, the rest must be in cash, money order or cheque.

    My package includes cocktail hour, 4 courses menu (beef and chicken on same dish), cake, premium alcoholic drinks, rent of the hall, cake,service, set up of tables, basic flower centerpieces and votive candles., and white lines, and  gratuity and tax is 11% .You can always upgrade sashes or other type of linens, PRICES PER PERSON: $56 so i dont find it bad at all.

    I heard nice reviews on European Crystal but have also heard they come with hidden costs plus they are quite higher than meridian, and pretty much offer the same.

    I don't know about the other places but i DO LOOOOOOOOOOVE my venue.

    Congrats

    Any questions, please feel free to contact me =)

    Meridian was my second place for my venue. I loved Meridian thought the price was good.  I know that the service there is great and they have nice package.  I dont think this was a bad choice.  I choice Venuti's in Addison for my hall they are more money but I loved the inside.  Congrats and I would love to hear how everything works out.

    Okay, so we just had our visits yesterday, and i was quite dissapointed at first but then it picked up during the day!  since we are planning a small wedding (50-70 people, we knew it would be harder to find something affordable yet elegant). however, when we went to European Crystal they were rude, unpleasant and pretty much told us its too small for them to make a profit out of us :(
    on the other hand, Meridian was absolutely the opposite!  we met with Susan!  she was really nice, helpfull and full of great ideas and suggestions!  this venue is definately staying on our list for now!  Smile
