I would recommend The Grand Meridian to anyone and everyone!! They are very flexible and helpful when it comes to wedding planning. My sister went there to plan her wedding and Sue was very helpful with everything and she is very honest when it comes to decorating and ideas...others ideas are always helpful. The food on top of that was out of this world amazing. Chef Joe Worden is by far the best there is. Very helpful when it comes to food and how to put things together. The tasting went amazing and he is very open to ideas, which is always a plus. :) like I said I would recommend The Grand Meridian to everyone.i hope your wedding will be there. :)Sent on 09/10/2015

Sue made this experience as easy as it could have been. She was professional and prompt in every decision, the food was amazing and the service was better than you could imagine. All of our guests had nothing but compliments for the food - the chef was amazing and they even provided a food tasting for us to sample everything and see the service first hand.
The experience at the head table was phenomenal. Sue came up, personally wished us well and a long and happy life, and then her servers served us, we didn't even have to get up and go through the buffet. The servers came around and asked if we needed anything else throughout the dinner, took our plates and food dishes away, and constantly asked how everything was.
Sue was always available, always flexible and ALWAYS in a good mood. If you book your wedding with the Grand Meridian, you're pretty much booking yourself a wedding planner to go with your day, because Sue made it that easy, and was always available to help. I could go on about her forever, she was great!Sent on 12/23/2019

We loved The Grand Meridian!
Everything about our reception was perfect. Sue helped with everything! She had the best ideas for decorating and so many options for me to use at no extra cost. We had an old fashion fountain and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone loved our wedding saying it was the best one they've been to yet! If we could do it all over again, we would! And we'd choose Sue and the Grand Meridian again and again!Sent on 12/02/2019
The Grand Meridian is an awesome venue, their staff is not only accommodating to the party having the event - but also to the entertainers that perform. A great place to have Wedding or Function!
Sue made our lives so easy when it came to capturing our couples wedding day! Anything we needed she delivered! Life was great! Gorgeous venue with amazing staff!
Amazing banquet facility!
