Claire and John's Wedding


We traveled from Miami Florida to be married in Appleton- we have family there and it seemed easier and less expensive than flying everyone down. We rented a house on the lake and had a great week before ther wedding. Everything was great, minus the venue- RIVERVIEW COUNTRY CLUB did the worst job in history. I was literally setting up my own wedding DURING the cocktail hour, when I had gone over the details with their "wedding coordinator" Cher three separate times in person. We brought in our own alcohol, since their wine list pretty much sucks and is totally overpriced (I'm from Miami and we can get same wines for much less/ also in the business). We spent about $500 on Champagne alone, that I delivered, labeled, and went over in person with this Cher- only to find that my guests were being served "Cook's"- thier low end house champagne for the evening. Unbeleivable. There were so many things that went wrong i feel sick every time I think back on my wedding. It's so sad because the venue itself and food are great! I would NEVER tell anyone to have a weddin ghere if Cher has anything at all to do with thew wedding. It will be a total cluster f*** and you will be like me and cry the whole trip home. :( I'm over it- just ge3t worked up every time i think of her inability to organize weddings when that's her job.

Riverview Country Club
Appleton, WI

When I think back about my May 2010 wedding I get sick to my stomach every time. The RIverview COuntry Club was the worst decision I made. THe coordiantor there- Cher is so disorganized. She single handedly screwed up the whole thing so badly that I spent the entire timt directing the staff, organizing my own music, and even bringing the correct chairs out during cocktail hour MYSELF while most brides would have been socializing or taking pictures. She lied to guests, to me, to my mother- it is a crime that she is in charge of weddings here as the venue and food are great. To top it off, she lost a $500 deposit check that I gave her. I would NEVER recommend a bride to use this venue if Cher has anything at all to do with the wedding. Awful. My pictures are pretty much non existant due to the fact that I WAS WORKING TO SET UP the wedding during the wedding. Or crying. Unbeleivable. If there were negative 10 stars that's what I would give. Oh= plus we flew from Miami for our weddding here since our family lives in Wisconsin.
