Royal Melbourne is amazing! We had our ceremony and reception there in September and I am so thankful that we found this place. It is a beautiful place and has so many great locations for photos. We ended up with about 190 people and it felt like the perfect size for that. We had our ceremony outside in the lawn area by the clubhouse and not only was it beautiful with the big trees and landscaping, but I also felt like we had privacy from the rest of the golf course. I loved how open, airy, and full of light the whole building felt and especially loved the window doors in the reception room that we were able to open once the dancing started. All of the food was delicious - and not just by wedding food standards. Kim is awesome and was so helpful through the whole process and on the wedding day. We considered getting a day of coordinator because so many friends had recommend to, but decided against it because we realized Kim was so on top of everything and really knew her stuff. We still are getting compliments on how everything went and how awesome Royal Melbourne was. Another huge reason we were so happy was that we really felt like Royal Melbourne was reasonably priced. Weddings are expensive and it makes it so much better when you feel like you're not wasting anything.

Royal Melbourne was an amazing venue for our wedding. It is beautiful, the service was top notch, and the food is fantastic. We had numerous people telling us afterwards it was one of the nicest weddings they had been to. Kim and Jori, the coordinators, were great to work with, responsive, and executed a flawless day for us. We cannot say better things about Royal Melbourne as a venue.

The wedding coordinator, Kim Olson, was so wonderful to work with! She helped us plan a beautiful wedding that went off without any problems! All of our guests raved about the quality of the food and the excellent service. I highly recommend Royal Melbourne!

My husband and I highly recommend the Royal Melbourne Country Club, without reservation. We knew from the moment we met Kim, that we were in good hands. We were blown away by Kim's knowledge, expertise and attention to detail. Kim was professional, organized and thorough and anticipated our needs before we had to ask (or even knew we needed them!). I was able to relax on my wedding day because she followed through to make sure everyone did their part. Furthermore, she communicated with the other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. We dropped off our wedding favors, card boxes, décor, and other wedding essentials the night before the wedding and the staff promised to take care of everything (and they did!). We were married on Saturday, June 13th, a day that started out quite dreary due to rain. With our wedding scheduled to be out in the garden, Kim kept a watchful eye on the radar and checked in frequently. A couple of hours before the wedding, we decided to move the ceremony to the veranda. This meant that the veranda had to be set up for the wedding then immediately after, set up for our cocktail hour. A task in which the staff handled flawlessly and effortlessly. We were relieved that the rain held out long enough for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and outdoor pictures. The grounds were impeccably maintained with beautiful flowers and greenery. The friendly staff moved swiftly to keep everything moving and on schedule. I could keep writing but I'm sure you get the point. If you are looking for a beautiful, high class, and professional venue, look no further than the Royal Melbourne.

I could not have been happier with the Royal Melbourne for my wedding in May of 2015. The venue is beautiful and the staff is absolutely fantastic, especially Kim (the event coordinator). We held both the ceremony and reception at the Royal Melbourne and Kim did a wonderful job helping me out with every single element of both. The day of the wedding, the weather was looking pretty overcast and we opted to hold the ceremony indoors instead of out. The transition was seamless and I was so happy that they were so accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests are still telling us that it was the best meal they've ever had at a wedding. I would definitely recommend the Royal Melbourne to any couple looking for a venue :)

Royal Melbourne was a fantastic venue for our wedding. The staff was unbelievably helpful, caring, and accommodating. The beauty of the venue was spectacular and something that our guest will not stop talking about. There is not a single negative thing I can say about what Kim and her staff provided for us through out the process, from the first meeting to the days after the event. If you are looking for great value, great service, and a venue that will impress all of your guests, Royal Melbourne will be the perfect fit.

We were recently married at the Royal Melbourne and we loved it! We live out of state, so it was a little tough planning our wedding from a distance. We visited the Royal Melbourne and fell in love at first sight! It is beautiful, and has a very sophisticated feel. We met with Kim, the venue coordinator, and she is amazing! She’s been at the Royal Melbourne for several years, so she’s very knowledgeable on it and has a lot of experience coordinating events there. I had my heart set on a garden wedding on the lawn, but I knew we’d need an indoor back-up plan. The Royal Melbourne had the best indoor option out of all the places we looked at. Sure enough, the weather forecast on our wedding day was questionable, so we moved everything indoors. We held the ceremony in the ballroom, then all the guests moved into the library area for the cocktail hour while they flipped the ballroom for the reception. It looked beautiful in every setup! The only downside was that because all the guests were inside for the cocktail hour, it was a little crowded. We had about 120 guests. The dinner was absolutely delicious, and the service was great. We got SO many compliments on the food! We chose a dual entrée with salmon and prime rib. We also had a few guests with severe food allergies or special dietary restrictions, and the venue was very accommodating for them. Kim worked seamlessly with all our vendors. She contacted all of them ahead of time to figure out the logistics, and kept everything running on schedule. The rest of our vendors were amazing, but it was really in Kim’s hands to make everything come together, and she did a fantastic job! Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the Royal Melbourne, and would highly recommend it. And Kim was an amazing venue coordinator!

I was just recently married at Royal Melbourne Country Club in September 2013. Everyone and everything there was perfect! We chose this venue after looking at several others in the Chicago suburbs and fell in love with it. Compared to a lot of the other venues, Royal Melbourne was SO flexible with everything. We had such a tough time with other venues about what we could bring in and what we couldn't, but they made it so easy. Michelle and Kim, the coordinators at Royal Melbourne, are a dream team. They are so responsive to everything and were always such a help with everything. Especially once it got closer to the wedding and I was a stressed bride! Kim checked in on me as the wedding neared to make sure I was doing okay and to ask if I needed help with anything. She was there for the wedding and made sure everything ran smoothly throughout the whole day and night. We couldn't have asked for better people to work with. They were always so communicative, enthusiastic, and approachable. Honestly, they sold this venue. We had about 170 guests and we had the ceremony outdoors on the lawn. It seemed like there was enough room to hold all of our guests, although, honestly I wasn't paying complete attention to the audience as my focus was on my husband! The big tree on the lawn is such a pretty back drop for the ceremony, and during the evening hours the light was so pretty. The cocktail hour was out on the veranda and it is so pretty being able to look out over the golf course. They even left some of the furniture out with table cloths so that guests had places to sit and eat. The ballroom had more than enough room! We could have probably fit around 200 without it feeling cramped. The appetizers and entrees were all delicious! All of the guests were complimenting the food the whole night. The cost of entrees at Royal Melbourne were very comparable to a lot of the venues in the Chicago suburbs. Mainly the differences come with taxes. Either way, it was worth every penn

After my first tour at Royal Melbourne, I fell in love with the surroundings. We booked our reception there, and I am so glad that we did! The experience was perfect. The staff was very responsive and helpful. They worked closely with us and met with us a few different times so that we could develop the floor plan and create the best timeline for the evening. All of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was. The ballroom was gorgeous, and our guests had comfortable chairs at their tables. The bridal party had a separate space for storing belongings, and they kept our gifts locked up for us once all the guests had arrived. The staff worked well with our other vendors, and they helped us to incorporate family traditions in our reception. My only complaint was that the food was better at the tasting than at the actual reception. My chicken was a little dry, which may be due to the number of people served. We tried 2-3 entrees at the tasting, but we served about 100 people at the reception. The chef was able to accommodate our guests’ special needs related to food allergies, gluten free, and vegetarian entrees. Overall, our reception turned out better than we imagined, and we had the time of our lives!

I was one of the unlucky brides who contracted with the Country Squire, only to be informed a few months before my wedding that they went out of business. Little did I know at the time that this was the best thing that could happen to me! Donna, Pascal and the rest of the staff at Royal Melbourne went out of their way to ensure that my wedding day was perfect and stress free. Working with Donna was like having a wedding planner – she knew the details I was forgetting, gave her suggestions when I asked for them and let me create my vision when I didn’t! Since I was planning my wedding from out of town AND didn’t contract with them until just a couple months before the wedding, their flexibility in scheduling my tasting and walkthroughs of the venue was paramount. Even the most organized of brides get overwhelmed the few weeks before the wedding with all the details that have to come together, and Donna not only helped keep me on track, but was understanding when I had to be a little late on something. The day of, my parents, husband and I expected details to be forgotten, and were pleasantly surprised when it went off without a hitch. Even on a scorching, record breaking heat day the guests couldn’t stop raving about the outdoor setting and the staff worked tirelessly to ensure everyone was comfortable – even suggesting a different route to get guests outside so they could stop by a water cooler on the way. As if that’s not enough, even after realizing that the Pascal had all of the details of the reception covered, we had a guest arrive after dinner and cake had been served. Since she slipped in, unbeknownst to me even, my dad assumed Pascal would miss her and went over to ensure she was served dinner, but Pascal was already on top of it and she was served before my dad got there. Unparalleled service would be an understatement, and I would recommend Royal Melbourne to anyone.
