    Fairytale Wedding!

    Let me start by saying The Palace Center has the most amazing staff and service! I'd like to give Anne a quick shout out- Not only did she meet with me several times before the wedding to perfect my food options, table set up, and timeline of events, she worked behind the scenes on wedding day to ensure everything went as smooth as possible.

    My wedding had close to 500 people and I never felt like the ballroom was crowded. Since it is so big, you can really play around with your tables and choose where you want the bridal party and guests to sit, as well as the floor layout.

    I definitely recommend this venue for anyone who is looking to plan their dream wedding, engagement party or any other special event. Anne and the rest of the staff at The Palace Center will not let you down!

    Amazing venue!

    Anne, the wedding planner, was incredible the entire wedding planning process. Her and the rest of her staff were professional, flexible and responsive. My guests are still raving about the great food, service and decor. You can really transform this space into anything you dream of. Highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for an affordable yet beautiful dream come true wedding.

    Loved this venue!

    The owner is the best! We knew right away after walking into the venue that it was going to be the perfect location for our BIG day! Everything was the way we pictured it and the staff was AWESOME! But the food... it was phenomenal! Everyone loved it and I could go for seconds!

    Accommodating and Friendly!

    We got married on 02-23-19 and had a wedding of ~400 people. If you are hosting a wedding of that size, in the Lehigh Valley, The Palace Center should be on your list.

    The food was excellent- The Palace Center recently hired a new head chef and he did an amazing job preparing food for such a large group. We did a combination platter of the Filet and Chicken Marsala; we received many compliments on the plating, flavor, and overall presentation of the food.

    Anne was a pleasure to work with- she was very accommodating on set up. She was flexible with allowing JHM Event Group to coordinate the décor and floral ahead of time so that not everything was completed the day of/day before the wedding. There was a large snowstorm a couple of days before the wedding, so it was great to have that flexibility.

    The main ballroom is very spacious and lends itself to a variety of layouts and décor options. The Palace Center is fantastic at accommodating most ideas.

    I would recommend this venue if you are hosting a large wedding in the Lehigh Valley!

    Fun, Friendly, Fantastic!

    From the beginning, Anne was more than willing to walk us through multiple wedding set-ups and answer all our questions quickly. Sheworked with our schedules to plan meetings when needed, and planned our tasting around other weddings that were there that day. She worked with us through our last minute changes and offered us various suggestions in order to capitalize our enjoyment for our wedding day.

    On our wedding day, the staff was absolutely great. They put the finishing touches on various décor items, and were more than willing to help out in any way possible. They served all meals efficiently and quickly without any issues. They were very attentive to myself and husband,and even asked us where our parents were sitting in order to get them their meals first as well. We've had various people tell us how great the food was, and how friendly and attentive the staff was the entire night (we've even had a few people tell us how the staff was having such a good time, and they were even dancing on the side! Haha).

    After the wedding was over, the staff was quick to help with the breakdown. I feel like my husband and I looked away for one second, and all the tables were already stripped! We had a bunch of guests stay to help gather our things as well, but the staff was truly great in every aspect.

    We cannot thank Anne and the Palace Center staff enough. We couldn't imagine a better venue and we will never get tired of hearing all our guests rave about how much fun everyone had the entire night.

    Wedding on 5/25/19

    Anne and her staff were tremendous! They were accommodating with any requests I had, met with us numerous times to put our minds at ease, made a time table for us to know how everything was going to go and to know that everything will be perfect! The day of the wedding, the food was great, the staff were amazing! Also, Anne went above and beyond to help my mom decorate specific tables when the florist failed to bring what was requested for centerpieces and saved the day! So thank you Anne and The Palace Center for making my big day beautiful and stress free!

    The Palace Center was the best! We couldn’t have been happier with our decision to have our reception there. Anne was very thorough and was always available (even when power was lost 2 weeks prior to our wedding due to a snow storm) we still had our final meeting! The team Anne had in place for our big day were unbelieveble - Caroline and Ray were beyond helpful the days leading up to the BIG DAY! They helped move tables to where I wanted, gave me their professional opinion when I asked and the day of everything was perfect! If we needed anything they were there right on top of it getting it done. We would highly recommend the Palace Center for any event from the chefs to waitstaff to bartenders and everyone in between they make your day the best ever. We have zero complaints!

    I don't even know where to start. Ann and Carolyn are with you every step from start to finish. Their packages are better than anyone in the Valley. I even changed my napkin color a week before and they did everything they can to get them for me. Ann helped me with the time line to ensure everything was perfect. On my actual wedding day Ann and Carolyn were there and helped with making sure everything went smoothly. The feedback from my 300+ guests about the food and the venue were confirmation of my thoughts! Thank you to the Palace and their staff, my wedding was flawless. I would recommend the Palace to anyone who wants to have a stress free venue!

    If you are looking for a large venue with amazing value, The Palace Center is definitely for you! We booked this venue for our September 2017 wedding. The owner Anne is fantastic. She's extremely professional, helpful, and accommodating to all of your wedding needs. She goes above and beyond by recommending you to other vendors and spending the time needed to make your day amazing. I am looking forward to working with them this year, and excited to see how everything turns out for our big day!

    My sister and mom did an amazing job with my shower.. anne thought out of the box and offered to have my shower in the cocktail area— well that was the best advice. My shower looked even nicer and more intimate. Anne and staff went out of their way to accommodate our requests- before during and after. The food was so good! Very friendly staff and always smiling. I would highly recommend the palace center to anyone! Thank you for making my shower so special❤️

    Look no further. The Palace Center is the hidden gem of the Lehigh Valley! We had our special event for 250 guests and it was impeccable. Our guests are still raving about the reception! Everything was absolutely beautiful and well organized.

    The ballroom looked like a Cinderella fairy tale room with the gold chiavari chairs and light blue tablecloths. So elegant!

    The dinner buffet was hot, plentiful and delicious! The Palace Center was very accommodating with my Vegan guests and kids. Anne, the Sales Manager, has many wonderful recommendations!

    Overall, the Palace Center was EXCELLENT! Anne, Carolyn and the entire staff are extremely knowledgeable, courteous and anticipate. Most places promise for your event to be incredible, but the Palace Center delivers! Because of them, we (and our guests!) have beautiful memories for many years to come!
