I usually don't write reviews, but I feel it's necessary upon seeing how many mixed and negative reviews the Monte Cristo has received. I want to tell everyone about my experience from start to finish and there's really nothing I would change. I first heard about the ballroom through my friend's mother who had attended a wedding there. It sounded too good to be true, so I called to get info, and it was actually not badly priced at all for having everything included. I set up a tour right away and was delighted by everything the venue had to offer. The only thing I was skeptical at first was that it was located in Everett, which I thought I had thought in the past did not have the best reputation. But I'm from Seattle, and I don't get up to the area very often, Everett has really changed over the past few years. They just built a Marriott across the street from the venue! Once I booked my wedding, a planner reached out to me right away. I have read many reviews talking about how the planning came never answered their calls or emails and I have to say that that's not true at all. Of course they work on the events over the weekend so you cannot expect a response that fast, but if you get ahold of them during their regular business hours there's always someone to help you right away and they are so friendly and knowledgeable. I never felt at any point in the planning they did not know what they were doing or did not have the confidence that they would be able to give me the perfect wedding day that I had enisioned. Just as expected, the day went beautifully. The only two packages really helpful because all I had to do was make a playlist to give to the DJ, sit down with the planning team and figure out decor, I didn't even have to rent that many items because they have so much decor in their package. On the day of, everything was set up just as we had talked about, and the food was a complete hit. Thank you, from a very happy bride and groom.

We got married in October 2017 and our wedding was amazing. I specifically want to give my thanks to the Monte Cristo Ballroom. From the moment I booked until the day of my wedding everything was very stress-free just as they had promised it would be. If you are a busy bride and has kids like I do, have work and even school like my husband and I do, you absolutely have no choice but to book with a venue to take care so much for you. The stress of putting on the biggest party of your life and making sure that all of your closest friends and family are enjoying themselves is very overwhelming. With little time in our schedules and wanting to have a fantastic wedding, we chose to use the Monte Cristo Ballroom. I regret absolutely nothing! They have an amazing planning team that will help you with all the details and even a area where you can try out decor stuff as much as you like before you get married. Everyone was always very helpful and friendly when I came in for an appointment or calls with a questions. I was never feeling like my day wouldn't go well, and when the wedding day actually happen both my husband and I had such an amazing time, I felt like I was Queen for the day and they took care of both of us while also putting on the best party ever! There is food the entire day we enjoyed the most awesome lunch while we are getting ready with mimosas and champagne. Now, you might tell yourself that you don't want to drink before the ceremony but girls, there are no nerves like wedding day nerves! My husband was able to enjoy a few beers with his friends as he was getting ready in the groom's room as well. The DJ was on point even with my specific instructions on when I wanted the songs to stop and start as I was walking down the aisle and during dancing. The food and drinks never ran out and my wedding planner was by my side the whole time. I would say so much more but I am limited to characters... for more details check out other sites. :)

Couldn't have chosen a better venue. Having a venue that does everything for you while still letting you customize everything seems impossible to find, but the Monte Cristo was exactly that. My friends and family said it was the best wedding they had been to. Ever! There was food and drink the entire day so I think that had a big influence on them too hahaha. I was really worried that it seemed too good to be true but not at all, it was the best, super affordable for what you At first glance it seems about average but it saves you soon much on all the little stuff.. Five stars, but I would give 10 if I could. If you're a bride who is so busy but doesn't want to be gouged on price, check them out, you won't be disappointed.

At first I thought that "all-inclusive" meant more expensive. I did a lot of research and it seemed like putting everything together myself could potentially be less expensive... But after realizing that every company has hidden costs and fees that add up in THOUSANDS of dollars, I decided to go the all inclusive path. Oh. My. God. I wish I could explain how tremendously happy I am that I did so. After all was said and done, my wedding ended up fitting within the budget I was hoping for, and the best part is that I didn't have to put it all together myself. Pretty much 90% of what you need for your wedding is all at this venue, but it's very customizable so don't think that that means you are stuck with a wedding like everyone else's wedding. Wedding planning was a breeze with the planning team here and the day of coordination team put everything together just as I was envisioning it. The entire process from start to finish was so incredibly easy and enjoyable, I would do it all again and again. The DJ was easy to work with and had all the music I needed, the decor package is really extensive and made it to that I had to buy very little of my own items. I ended up using about a hundred of their candles and vases for my wedding, and nothing cost extra. There was no nickel-and-diming whatsoever. I have had friends who have gotten married and went so far over budget because of hidden costs. I kept expecting something to cost more at the venue. Stationary? Create anything you want with their graphic designer. Food and drink? There are like 100 items served throughout the day and this is just how their menu work, no matter how much you spend at the venue. I have to say that was the best part, not having to feel like I missed out because I spent less than another couple. Montecristo made me feel like the actually cared about my wedding and didn't look at me and my fiance as money. The day itself was flawless, my guest all told me they had the best time ever and did not ha

My fiance's Tyler and I just had our wedding and I absolutely had to take time to post a review for our amazing venue, the Monte Cristo Ballroom! While giving this review I am also reviewing my DJ, wedding planner, and catering because the Monte Cristo does it all. If you are looking to save yourself stress while planning and especially on the day of, look no further. I was immediately dazzled when I first came to look at the venue and had a free tour and tasting. There wasn't a bunch of other people at the tasting and it felt really personal. I knew after trying the food that everything was going to be just awesome. We booked that night and made an appointment to meet with our planner right away. All in all, over the course of many months I probably drove my planner crazy because I wanted to meet with them as much as possible. After all, we've never done this before! The planner that I had was so helpful and had great suggestions or what to do for my wedding. Surprisingly, the Monte Cristo Ballroom is very flexible about what they allow used to do in the venue. It is not the type of space where the answer is often "no". Leading up to my wedding, I was absolutely full of nerves because well, after all, it was our wedding day! But I really had no need to worry. When I arrived on the day of, everything looked just as I had hoped. No friends or family had to come and set up decor, because the Monte Cristo took care of everything. As the day progressed I felt less nervous when I realized that my planner had it all under control. The DJ was fantastic and got my guest excited to dance, the food was just as awesome as it was at the tasting, and overall I know that I saved money by choosing a venue that has everything I needed. I would absolutely, one hundred percent recommend this venue and its services to any possible looking to save themselves stress and a lot of money!!!

I have always gotten butterflies thinking about my wedding day. It's really important to myself and my family to incorporate traditional Indian wedding customs and I found this venue to be so accommodating to all of my ideas and concerns. On the day of my wedding, it felt like a fairytale. Everything looked SO beautiful and well executed. My friends and family never lifted a finger and we were treated like royalty by all the staff and our amazing wedding planner. The Monte Cristo helped me customise my music with their DJ, a perfect mix of some traditional music that I've heard at so many Indian weddings since I've been a little girl and some hip music that got all my guests moving! The food was absolutely incredible and they let my family bring some very special dishes that they wished to incorporate that day, no extra cost. I really appreciated how easily they accommodated all of our wishes. Many venues I had looked at before did not allow for traditional food, even at an additional cost? I found this very upsetting at other venues. I would highly recommend this venue to ANY bride or groom looking for a perfect and magical experience. I still tear up thinking about how wonderful everyone was. I feel like I had true friends in the staff that was there at my wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Being a very particular bride and groom, my fiance and I weren't sure that we were going to find what we needed to meet our wedding wishes. We actually looked at about 10 different venues before coming to the Monte Cristo. Walking in the front door, we knew right away that we liked the feel of the venue. But it wasn't that that really drew us in, it was the fact that it is so exclusive and offer so much right there. I was always already stressing about how long it was going to take to find all my vendors and how much it was going to cost, I was stressed out before I even started planning! But what the Monte Cristo Ballroom does is really different. They have absolutely everything you need and it's all about your big day. I'm not really sure why I have been reading some reviews about the turnover in staff, because it hasn't affected us at all. In fact everyone that we worked with in order to put on our wedding was absolutely amazing, and we were able to call and come visit as much as we wanted. On the day of, everything was just as I had planned and talk to my day of coordinator about. The best part about it is that there were no other charges after the wedding, and my friends and family are still raving about what an amazing time they had and the food especially. The only other advice I have is to make sure that if you're looking for a date in the next year or two that you get in touch with them as soon as possible, because finding a date can be hard.

I just had my wedding at Monte Cristo just last month, and just getting back now to review after my honeymoon. When I think about my experience over the past year I have nothing but good things to say about it. The staff was always helpful, the facility is gorgeous (think 1920s Great Gatsby meets modern updates!)I was never worried about how the wedding was going to go, and when the day came I felt like all of the normal stress and pressure of planning a wedding was alleviated. Not only do they have an amazing planning team, but there wasor pretty much everything you need when it comes to your wedding and no surprise extra costs later. I was able to meet with someone to create my invitations with a designer, there was a ton of decor to choose from (I barely had to bring any in), I got to customize my music with the DJ, and so much more. Usually when you think of something that is all inclusive or has things included with it, you think of being limited on options. But absolutely nothing was limited when it came to my wedding. On top of all of that, it ended up being an awesome price. I did a lot of research beforehand and at first I thought it was kind of expensive, but it's because everything is all in one place. My friends recently had a wedding and it was double the amount because they did everything separately. The day itself was just as I imagined it would be, everyone had an amazing time and it felt like we spent much more on our wedding than we did. What an amazing experience, I would recommend it to any bride in the future!

I'm the type to plan everything myself. Parties, get together, other friend's showers and even their weddings. But I started in on my process of planning my wedding once I got engaged, and I just wasn't enjoying it. For once I just wanted to give up the stress of controlling every last aspect of an event, to just enjoy the day I've been dreaming of my whole life!!! I still wanted the ability to be able to customize everything about my day, but without the stress of booking vendors trying to strategically organize everything, etc. I didn't know there was such a thing as an all-inclusive event planning service, but my friends told me about the Monte Cristo Ballroom and how the process of planning your wedding is so much easier because most of your vendors are already in their package. I came to a free tour and tasting and was immediately by how well-organized everything was, how friendly the staff was from the moment I stepped in the door, followed by hearing about the most incredible package and tasting food that is unlike anything I've ever eaten at a wedding before. It felt like I was dreaming, so I imagine that the price is going to be out of this world! Surprisingly enough, it ended up being so affordable. The only things you need to get outside of their package or a florist and photographer but everything else is taken care of and completely customizable at the same time. The process itself was incredible and I was able to meet with the nicest planner who made sure all the details were just perfect for my day of. My friends and family were so incredibly impressed and have not stopped talking about it since. I can't recommend this venue and their incredible staff enough. If you are looking for the wedding of your dreams for an incredible price and the least amount of stress possible, you need to check this place out immediately. You won't be disappointed.

Both my fiancé and I flew in for the wedding, and this was the perfect venue because we didn't have to worry about a thing! The wedding package included everything we needed, and they set everything up for us the day of the wedding. The staff was phenomenal from the time we showed up for a tour of the venue, until the time we said thank you so much after the night of a successful wedding :) There's no other venue I would have gone with!!

The Monte Cristo was amazing! When we walked in for our tour my now husband and I fell in love with the beautiful, vintage look of the venue. The Bridal suite and the Grooms Room was awesome, especially providing foosball and video game access for the groomsmen to keep them entertained day of. They gave us a sample meal at the tour and it was cooked to perfection! We signed the contract and started our journey planning our wedding. The wedding planners were amazing, helping us bring our wedding dreams to life! We had a lot of color and a lot of small details we wanted to include without making it look too overwhelming. We provided decorations and some basic instructions of what to do with them and they did amazing. They put together a memorial table for us to honor our passed loved ones who couldn't be there and it was simply beautiful. The Day of Coordinator Sierra was amazing and soooo helpful. She kept us on track and helped us manage our day to perfection. The butlers that the venue provides to see to the bride and groom on their wedding day were godsends. They made sure we got food, drinks and anything else we needed help with. The only hitch we ran into was the DJ not contacting us. When the venue was made aware they jumped into action and hired a new DJ to take care of our event and made sure that even though it was very close to our big day that we were taken care of and had what we wanted. The new DJ and MC were amazing and took great care of us. The food was amazing; all of our guests were super happy with the choices made available. I would definitely recommend using the Monte Cristo for your wedding day.

I would recommend to the Monte Cristo Ballroom to everyone. I am usually the type of person who likes to have control of most situations, but when it came to the wedding day I was pretty hands off because the Monte Cristo had proved to me that they would handle everything and make the day go as perfect as possible... and they did! I received so many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful the venue was and how seamless the day seemed to go. There was always some staff of the Monte Cristo willing and able to help you... and they always made sure to check with the bride on final decorations before anyone else could see the rooms. My wedding day was perfect and I know that the Monte Cristo was a large reason for that.
