We both grew up in Langhorne, PA and have both been life-long parishioners at Our Lady of Grace Church. The priest was wonderful and added in many personal references. Our only disappointment is that they do not allow pictures to be taken after the ceremony. Our photographer could take as many photos during and before the ceremony but none after. :(
I can't say much about the Hampton Inn other than they were extremely helpful in setting up a block of rooms for me prior to the wedding. I have never stayed there and of the wedding guests that stayed there, none mentioned anything to me!
Almost perfect! Just about everything was perfect on our wedding day at the country club. We paid the extra cash to have our names displayed on the sign out on Route 332 but they spelled my name wrong! Ack! They changed it as soon as my dad made them aware but by that point, almost everyone had already arrived.
We had a couple of bumpy meetings with the staff leading up to the event as well. The turnover is unreal! I think we met with and dealt with over half a dozen people in the year leading up to our wedding day! We were also disappointed that they didn't offer a tasting - when I have heard of others more recently who had tastings! How can we choose a meal (that is $100/plate) without tasting it first?!
OK. Those are my complaints. The things I loved about the country club are listed below:
-Top shelf open bar for 5 full hours
-Separate from the other banquet room (private bathrooms)
-A dozen different butlered H'ors deurves
-Cake included (though we opted to go with my cousin's bakery instead)
-Fresh floral centerpieces included
-Separate cocktail room
-Plenty of parking
-Excellent maitre'd (Sergio)
As I stated, the actual wedding day was perfect. The turnover in staff made it a little difficult to iron out details and the 'non-tasting' issue was a bit unfair when you're spending over $15,000 there...
