The Venetian truly provided us with a wedding to remember. The comments we received from our guests regarding the sense of grandeur and class at The Venetian were abundant and remarkable. One of our guests even called our wedding the Wedding of the Century. The professionalism and courtesy of the staff were beyond belief. Our personal attendants were extremely helpful and super professional. I really can't find the words to describe how great they were. Even as the night went on, they attended on the smallest details and were mindful of the most minute tasks, such as making sure our personal wine glasses (which were a wedding gift) were boxed back up and ready to be taken home. Along with the professionalism was the beauty of this venue. The cocktail room has a masterful design, which included an outdoor seating area, which our guests loved. The food was top-notch. They left nothing to be wanted. It was a true spoiling of the senses. The one and only thing that I would criticize is that they did not allow us to sample their food prior to signing up. But that is a minor detail since the food ended up being absolutely delicious. This venue really is a 5-star venue. I would most certainly recommend to a friend.

We just had our wedding there over a week ago and everything was top notch. Our wedding was in the Grand Ballroom with a guest list of 235. From the service to the staff, everyone was very professional and on top of everything. We booked our wedding with ToniAnn -- whom is awesome!!! Our Matri'd Barbara and Bridal Assistant Michelle were great as well. They had everything under control.

Everything was setup as should and our guests are still raving about the amount and quality of food provided at the Cocktail hour. Basically, everything you can think of. The Viennesse hour was just spectacular! From the chocolate fountains, to Haagen Dazs icecream, to the cotton candy -- our guests just couldn't get enough. They even had a to-go station setup with coffee/tea & ice cream. The place just looks amazing, from the second you walk in.

One tip is to make sure you have a bite to eat, although the whole day is hectic, make sure you get to sit down and enjoy some of the great food. I got to pick at it a little bit.

Highly recommend! Couldn't imagine our wedding anywhere else :)

Amazing venue for my fairytale wedding! The staff was the best for every minute of the day! My bridal attendant Maggie was beyond helpful and helped me to do EVERYTHING that night! I couldn't have asked for more! She even helped me take out bobby pins from my hair at the end of the night while I waited for my shuttle to the hotel! She was always one step ahead, brought us all kinds of Food, and always was ready with a cold glass of water or a drink after dancing! Loved this venue and plan to have any future events there for my family!

We just had our wedding at the Venetian and everything was amazing. We had our reception in the Grand Ballroom ( The smaller room) and by no means was it small. We decided to keep the room open ( they give you a choice depending on how many people you have; we had 215) and it was so grand and everyone loved it! The dance floor was packed all night( thanks to our wonderful DJS). The day was everything I ever dreamt of. The Venetian know hows to cater to you and your guest will feel it as well.

The cocktail hour is out of this world. Every choice you can think of was included in our price. Our guest is still talking about the lobster ravioli. Once we transferred in to Grand Ballroom the host made sure you had everything you needed all night long. The dinner was amazing as well. The Viennese hour was something I never saw before. They had every creation possible.

It was truly an amazing day. My husband and I had our dream wedding thanks to the Venetian!

I would like to thank everyone at The Venetian for the wonderful wedding for my daughter on Friday. Once our limo showed up we were ushered in and treated like royalty. Everything went smoothly. You really know how to make sure everything is perfect. The food and service were excellent. The staff at the Venetian were polite and very attentive to the guests. My guests could not get over how wonderful the cocktail hour was. Then when dinner and the desserts came out they could not believe their eyes. I would highly recommend The Venetian to anyone who wants an elegant and stress free affair that people will love. Thank you.
Very happy mother of the bride

We had our wedding reception here on Friday, July 18, 2014. The Venetian far exceeded our expectations. When we first started looking for halls for our wedding, we stopped by here and as soon as I walked in my mouth dropped. The beautiful entrance way, gardens out front, and rooms themselves were breath taking. I turned to my now husband and just said "WOW!" We were greeted right away and met with the very friendly staff who sat us down and went through every possible option we could have. We ended up booking the Venetian and we couldn't have been happier. The night of the wedding, our Matre D, Sam, and Bridal Attendant, were waiting for our arrival. They immediately introduced themselves and took us to the bridal suit/showed us around to make sure we were happy with the way the room was set up, etc. They took great care of us and our guests, and made sure we were happy throughout the night. The food was delicious and atmosphere was great. All of our guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed the endless abundance of food. They are all saying what a wonderful venue it was and that it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to! We couldn't be happier hearing this. We are so thrilled with our decision to get married here and would highly recommend them to future brides and grooms. Thank you for an unforgettable night!! :)

This venue is absolutely the BEST. This venue does an outstanding job with EVERYTHING. From the 1.5 hour cocktail hour to the Viennese desert hour, this place is the best, best, best.

They are very professional and we never had to worry about anything. They do everything for you and there are no shortcuts taken. We received countless responses from guests about how amazing the food was and the venue was.

The decor was perfect, they did an amazing job setting up for 400 people and we will use this venue for all occasions in the future.

Don't miss out on this wonderful venue. Thank you

Absolutely incredible experience! From the moment we entered their premises, we knew this was the perfect venue for us- everything was impeccable. The staff was phenomenal, making guests feel welcome; our attendant was next to us the entire night coordinating everything and the food was by far the most incredible spread- from cocktail hour right through Viennese hour, the food impressed all! Our guests are still raving and we are so pleased with the exceptional night we had!

The Venetian knows how to put on a fabulous wedding! The food was incredible, despite they served a different chicken dish as an entree than previously discussed. They are not the warmest to deal with, but do give an incredible performance from cocktail hour to walking out! The maitre d' was no where to be found most of the night, never asking us if we (the bride and groom) or our parents wanted drinks, assistance, concerns, etc. Our MC had to help us find him to lower the air twice. The bridal attendant, Brandy, was an absolute amazement - a must request for your wedding day! She could not have done more for us. Everyone had a blast and raved about the food and extravagant deco

I would highly recommend The Venetian to anyone getting married in New Jersey! They make the wedding planning process as easy and painless as possible. Their cocktail hour is unforgettable, complete with ice sculptures, carving stations, and a raw bar. The food is plentiful, but more importantly delicious. I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding night because the staff there took care of everything. They were exceedingly professional and definitely are invested in making sure your night is the best it can be.

Thanks to the Venetian, our wedding is being referred to by family and friends as the "best wedding they have EVER been to." Seriously, we couldn't be happier with the food, the service, and the people we worked with there. The staff is so accommodating - they catered to everything we asked for and went out of their way to make it happen. Our guests are still raving about how a glass never went empty the whole night. We were treated like royalty - our parents were even served at our cocktail hour so they never even had to get up if they didn't want to. For the bouquet toss, I left my throwaway bouquet in the suite and within 30 seconds my bridal attendant had it there for me to throw. I was a lucky bride aka: I got to eat at my own wedding! We were brought a sampling of everything during the cocktail hour and they served us dinner first at the reception so we could go around thanking tables right after. I had the filet mignon and it was delicious. Too quality cuisine at the Venetian - no joke. Our Viennese Hour was massive: every sweet under the sun was there for the taking. And every tray was refilled before ever empty. Our guests were saying they have never eaten so much than they did at our wedding. After the extensively elaborate cocktail hour, they were in awe that there was a plated 4 course dinner to follow. Our cocktail hour was even upgraded to include more than we thought - wow! The night was amazing. I hope someone gets married here soon because I want to go back! I highly recommend the Venetian - it's worth every penny. If you want to feed your guests well and have your event go off without a hitch - this is definitely the place for you!

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and all our guests had the time of their lives. The food was superb, everybody was raving about it. Not to sound biased, but I've been to many different venues in NJ and the Ventian has by far the best cocktail hour selection. The entrees & Viennese hour were also top notch. The venue itself is gorgeous, you get what you pay for here.

The service here is also to par with the food & ambiance. My bridal attendant Barbara & our Maitre'd Osama ran a tight ship. They were on top of all details and had the night go by smoothly. This place has definitely earned its stellar reputation.
