    A Dream to Work With!

    The Royal Melbourne was a dream to work with during a nightmare of a year! Getting married in 2020 was not easy...there were many difficult decisions to make and changes that needed to be done in order to have our special day, and through it all Kim and the Royal Melbourne were there for us! So flexible, so accommodating, and so KIND! Through postponements, drastic guest list cuts, and safety procedures, they made sure everything was perfect for the big day. We were able to have our 50 person wedding and feel completely safe...while having a blast! Kim is a pro...everything was set for the day perfectly, and you can tell she has a lot of experience! The food was great, the room beautiful, and the staff friendly. With all the changes COVID forced us to make, I'm so so so happy that changing our venue wasn't one of them. We also know a couple that got married there pre-covid and had a much larger wedding and they also had an amazing experience (they recommended us) so regardless of when you get married, how many people, etc, the Royal Melbourne has got you.

    The most important thing I learned throughout the wedding planning experience is that you want to surround yourself with venues and people that put YOU and your spouse first, above all else. The Royal Melbourne does that and more!

    Dream Venue!

    Talk about a best kept secret! If you’re thinking about somewhere to have your wedding, look no further. We have had the best experience possible and our day was absolutely perfect. Seriously, I cannot recommend Royal Melbourne Country Club enough! The food was outstanding, and the staff is incredible. They truly make you feel like family on your special day. Kim, the event coordinator, was getting us drinks, helping to bustle my dress, checking on us constantly, and even took time to pin my dress when one of the bustle loops broke! They truly go above and beyond. As a “covid bride” I also loved that they let me pick a backup date so we could have a small reception right after our ceremony followed by a big party later this summer. We honestly weren’t going to look here based on the pictures that the knot had, but went on a whim (they were one of few places allowing us to tour at the beginning of covid) and I’m SO happy we did. We felt safe the entire time, guests are still raving about the food, and our dream wedding truly became a reality! Kim was super great to work with and answered my millions of emails without missing a beat! She also helped coordinate vendors so that we didn’t need to hire a coordinator and got to save some money on that end. If you’re on the fence, I’ll be the first to say, go check it out - the venue is BEAUTIFUL and the people are INCREDIBLE. You WILL fall in love!

    Best wedding venue

    Royal Melbourne Country Club was the perfect place for our wedding. The staff was amazing and always in great communication! Even during these crazy times with the pandemic Kim made the planning process easy and made sure my guests were all safe during the wedding. I almost had to reschedule the bridal shower the night before and Kim had an entire backup plan ready to go before I had time to panic! If I could rate 6 stars I would have! Photos were amazing in the golf course and my guests are still raving about the food! I wouldn't have had my dream wedding in 2020 without the help of Kim and all the staff at Royal Melbourne.
