Hi all! I’m curious if anyone is having their reception, or has been to a reception at the Priory Grand Hall? If so any opinions/advice? How expensive is expensive (roughly)? I currently live in the NYC area but will be married out there – I’m just looking around online for now to get ideas and fell in love with the look of the place.

Hi Sunshine – I’ve never been to a wedding at the Grand Hall but we did investigate it briefly when we were looking for a reception venue. It was way out of price range – I think around $95/person – but if that’s reasonable to you, it is a beautiful venue!

Since you are coming from NY, two questions I have for you are: when are you getting married and are a lot of people coming in from out of town who don’t know the area? I ask because if you are thinking of getting married during football season you might want to try and see if Pitt or the Steelers have big home games that weekend because downtown could be a little nuts to get around for out of towners.
I have never been there but it looks amazing from the photos!

Thanks – yeah, $95 per person is a little too pricey. Can’t say I’m surprised by the look of the place. Oh well!
No date has been set yet. Most of my family, and all of his family, are in the Pittsburgh area so they probably wouldn’t even show up if it was on a game day! The groom probably wouldn’t show up! But that’s a good point, I hadn’t thought of that for out of towners.
Thank you both!

Hi Sunshine – If there are any other places that you’re looking at that you’d like opinions about, feel free to send me a message! I’ve been to a dozen or so weddings in Pittsburgh and visited a ton of places when we were searching for a reception site, so it’s possible that I’ve been to a wedding at or at least visited many of the receoption places you’re considering!!!
