We were recently married at the Royal Melbourne and we loved it! We live out of state, so it was a little tough planning our wedding from a distance. We visited the Royal Melbourne and fell in love at first sight! It is beautiful, and has a very sophisticated feel. We met with Kim, the venue coordinator, and she is amazing! She’s been at the Royal Melbourne for several years, so she’s very knowledgeable on it and has a lot of experience coordinating events there.Sent on 09/28/2014
I had my heart set on a garden wedding on the lawn, but I knew we’d need an indoor back-up plan. The Royal Melbourne had the best indoor option out of all the places we looked at. Sure enough, the weather forecast on our wedding day was questionable, so we moved everything indoors. We held the ceremony in the ballroom, then all the guests moved into the library area for the cocktail hour while they flipped the ballroom for the reception. It looked beautiful in every setup! The only downside was that because all the guests were inside for the cocktail hour, it was a little crowded. We had about 120 guests.
The dinner was absolutely delicious, and the service was great. We got SO many compliments on the food! We chose a dual entrée with salmon and prime rib. We also had a few guests with severe food allergies or special dietary restrictions, and the venue was very accommodating for them.
Kim worked seamlessly with all our vendors. She contacted all of them ahead of time to figure out the logistics, and kept everything running on schedule. The rest of our vendors were amazing, but it was really in Kim’s hands to make everything come together, and she did a fantastic job!
Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the Royal Melbourne, and would highly recommend it. And Kim was an amazing venue coordinator!

Michelle at the Royal Melbourne was amazing. She was extremely organized, and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. She brought to life the vision I had for our reception. The customer service and staff were impeccable, and professional. The food was delicious, our guests are still raving about it 3 weeks later!!! If I could, I would have my wedding reception here 100 times over. Our day was absolutely perfect. Thank you Michelle and the staff at the Royal Melbourne!Sent on 10/30/2018

Royal Melbourne is amazing! We had our ceremony and reception there in September and I am so thankful that we found this place. It is a beautiful place and has so many great locations for photos. We ended up with about 190 people and it felt like the perfect size for that. We had our ceremony outside in the lawn area by the clubhouse and not only was it beautiful with the big trees and landscaping, but I also felt like we had privacy from the rest of the golf course. I loved how open, airy, and full of light the whole building felt and especially loved the window doors in the reception room that we were able to open once the dancing started. All of the food was delicious - and not just by wedding food standards. Kim is awesome and was so helpful through the whole process and on the wedding day. We considered getting a day of coordinator because so many friends had recommend to, but decided against it because we realized Kim was so on top of everything and really knew her stuff. We still are getting compliments on how everything went and how awesome Royal Melbourne was. Another huge reason we were so happy was that we really felt like Royal Melbourne was reasonably priced. Weddings are expensive and it makes it so much better when you feel like you're not wasting anything.Sent on 01/02/2017
