Want to Make Sure You Pick the Perfect Wedding Venue? Read the (Right) Reviews.

Your wedding day will be the biggest day of your life, and perhaps the most important decision prospective brides and grooms will make is choosing their wedding venue. Our blog and infographic from last week spoke about “5 Tips for Selecting Your Wedding Venue” which will help you make the right decision for your wedding.

This blog tells you where to actually get started since you’ll have so many choices, it could be overwhelming. So, like you would for a movie or a book, consider looking at reviews for any venues you’re considering. And, even more importantly, look for respected reviewers. These reviewers do a great jog in weeding out the so-so and even good venues from the truly great ones in your price range, which is what you should be aiming for.

Two of the most respected wedding-oriented websites, WeddingWire and The Knot have excellent information about all kinds of wedding topics, including the highest-rated local ceremony and reception venues.

Riverhouse Hospitality proudly has two Connecticut wedding venues that will fulfill the dreams of any couple looking for the perfect venue. The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station, based in Haddam CT and The Society Room of Hartford CT are two distinct and beautiful places to consider for your wedding – both rated as the highest in Connecticut.

WeddingWire gives The RIverhouse at Goodspeed Station 5 stars based on quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value and flexibility. Winners of the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award every year since 2010, reviews from the couples themselves tell the story. Here’s a quote from one of the couples:

“If you’re looking for a venue with great food, great views, and an incredibly professional staff then I would absolutely recommend you consider the Riverhouse for your wedding venue!”

Well, it’s hard to top that! Additionally, The Knot’s reviews are equally wonderful, if only based on this couples’ quote:

“The Riverhouse helped us have the wedding of our dreams. We absolutely loved working with them. They truly are experts, visionaries, and wonderful at what they do.”

WeddingWire gives The Society Room at Hartford 4.9 stars out of 5, also receiving rave endorsements and reviews. Following is one such review:

“Welcome to a truly classic and elegant setting for your wedding. The Society Room will provide a dramatic and unforgettable backdrop for your special occasion. In the glorious Society Ballroom, you’ll find a room of grand marble columns soaring to an exquisitely muraled ceiling, some thirty five feet above the dance floor.”

The Knot has wonderful reviews as well, branding from “Amazing Venue,” “Stunning!” and more. Following is a recent review:

“The Society Room was simply PERFECT! We worked really closely with Kirsten during the planning process and she was fantastic. Always quick to reply to emails, open to our ideas and very accommodating. The wedding night was truly amazing. Everything ran smoothly without any hiccups. The Society Room also has great partnerships with CT vendors and planning was a breeze. Our guests were wowed by the venue itself, the service, and the food!”
