    Bridal shower

    I had the best bridal shower this past April. The team at the woodlands was incredible and very responsive! They made my day one to remember. The pricing was fair and very reasonable for the area and what the package included. We had a beautiful ballroom all to ourselves and a pre-set luncheon. My guests said the food was amazing !!! It included a salad, and we selected chicken franchise and a brownie Ala mode for dessert. Seriously the food was AMAZING!!! Thank you for making my bridal shower one of the best days and all the coordination (: I loved it !!!

    Everything was perfect from the moment we started to plan our wedding. We worked with both Rick and Gail and they were so easy to work with an answered all of our questions. Even though our wedding was very small they still took care of us as if we had a huge wedding and gave us the wedding of our dreams. The actual rehearsal and wedding day was handled by Gail and she was the best to work with and made sure we had nothing to worry about. Our rehearsal was at Creszeno's and it was a perfect way to start of the weekend. The staff and food was great. our ceremony was held in grove and it was decorated so beautifully. I can't say enough good things about the woodlands and their staff!
