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!
