Sister Bruschetta’s November 2007 wedding reception was there!  Let me know if you have any questions    It’s a beautiful venue!

Hey Everyone! I am hoping to visit Glen Foerd soon…I really love it from what I have seen online but a few things I have heard about it concern me. Maybe you can help! Glen Foerd says they fit a max of 155 and that is with a station dinner. Do you think it will feel cramped with 155 guests? And during dinner, I heard that some guests have to sit in other sections not in the main room due to space constraints (I assume this would be with larger weddings). Did anyone notice this or think it took away from the event for the guests that had to sit in the outskirts?

I really like Glen Foerd, but have been second guessing it for these reasons. I think once we visit it, I’ll have a better idea. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Hi!  I’m happy to talk to you a bit about my sister’s experience with Glen Foerd.  She did a seated dinner for about 125, and had two tables in each of the "sunrooms" off of the main dining room.  Honestly, the guests there were the groom’s extended family (SOME of them), and the MOG’s work friends.  It really didn’t take away, I think, because you could see into the main room for toasts and, honestly, we weren’t IN that area too long…after dinner, everyone moved out to the solarium for dessert and dancing. 

When are you visiting GF?  Feel free to PM me if you’d like to chat more about this!

My brother got married here a few years ago, and it was beautiful!  He also had tables set up in the two "sunrooms".  I think they were only separated by a glass wall, so it didn’t feel like they were too separated.
