Hey! I am in LOVE with the palm house, and I haven’t even seen it in person yet lol. So far it is my favorite of what I have considered, but am concerned about the price pp especially since based on the online menu and my big foodie european family, I would have to add stations, and increase the price even more. What were you quoted?  

 

Ps I have heard only wonderful reviews about the plam house.

Are you having your ceremony there as well?

I feel the reception is the most important, and if you can swing it, its totally worth it. You are going to have an amazing wedding. Keep me posted! Hopefully I’ll be there too!

We had a TERRIBLE experience when we went to visit the venue. Basically, I had been emailing with someone named Kara for weeks before we went to visit (we were not local, so getting there was difficult for us) and she seemed perfectly nice. She told us the last date available was 8/24 and that we should come in ASAP to see it so that we can book it. Well, we thought we would love it there, so we went to visit for the next available appointment. 

It took us hours to get there, and we were so excited. When we came in, we had to wait 30 minutes (past our given appointment time) to even be seen. Finally, we met with Charles, the owner, who basically had no idea we were even supposed to have an appointment. Kara “forgot” to tell him, regardless of the fact that I had triple-confirmed with her beforehand. Moreover, the date was taken and since it was the last available date, we would have to push our wedding off for another 6 months. I’m not upset about the date being taken as much as I am about nobody telling me this, so that I wouldnt waste all that time schlepping to Brooklyn in the middle of a Saturday. This was completely unprofessional, and I am now skeptical of how they conduct their business even after booking. Other reviewers have pointed out that the owners are hard to reach, and don’t really reach out to you about your own wedding. I found that to be true about booking the date as well. 

 

I hope your wedding turns out perfect, and that my experience doesn’t foreshadow anything, though!
