My husband and I had our wedding reception at Carriage Greens. Until one week ago, I would have given 5 stars. From the beginning, first Amanda then Sandy were absolutely wonderful. They were helpful, friendly, and I never heard "no" from them. They were willing to work with us on everything and were so fast to respond to emails and phone calls. When we needed to meet with Sandy in person, she made herself available. We couldn't have been happier with everything! However, the Tuesday before our wedding, we went to get the bill and discovered a $300 difference in what we expected versus what we saw. The company had increased the service fee from 17% to 20% without notice. When we asked to see a copy of our contract and discovered it did in fact say 17%, we were told to look again and in parantheses it said (subject to change). So 4 days before the wedding, without any notice, we had a several hundred dollar increase.

When we asked Sandy about the whole thing, she also mentioned that the service fee is NOT gratuity, which is what we were originally told. So now, again 4 days before the wedding, we had to pay more and try to come up with money for gratuity as well. We were obviously a bit frustrated at this point, and asked if they could lower it back to 17% as was the original plan. We were told no, and so I said "Okay, well I suppose that's what reviews are for." We returned within the hour with the full check.

The night of our wedding, I had five separate people come tell me that one of the staff (bartender, server, or Sandy) was rude to them. I had nothing but positive interactions, so I do not know what the situation was, but it was 5 different people in different situations.

On the positive side, the food was delicious and as far as I saw, everything looked beautiful and went wonderfully. I'm just disappointed whoever their business manager is has such poor ethics.

They are fabulous to work with...answer every question, very flexible and helpful (and patient). They went out of their way to make sure my wedding was perfect. The value is superb. They have an old world vibe (perfect for my French theme) and the food is so good. Not just banquet food actually good food. Use the Martini Bar for your cocktail hour...its a great vibe. Drinks are poured well and not watered down. I highly reccommend!

We were a little nervous about not having one coordinator assigned to our event but we had no problems at all. All of the staff members we worked with were helpful and able to answer our questions. Everything at the reception was set up according to our specifications. The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate the specific dietary needs for some of our guests. We couldn't have been happier and wouldn't have changed a thing.

I had some issues with the facility given that I am an event planner. The response time for questions was less than to be desired but my biggest issue was on the day of the wedding, I was told that my centerpieces (delivered the day before and morning of the wedding) would be put out per my instructions. They were not when we arrived to do photographs - my bridesmaids (thank God for them) took care of everything without telling me. The tables were not set up according to the chart I was given. Again saved by my bridesmaids. A lot of the extras were not taken care of and had it not been for my bridesmaids it probably wouldn't have gotten done. The bartender was a doll - my husband and I both requested that the heat be lowered and she kindly asked the staff multiple times - it just didn't happen.

Overall, the food was good (great value really) but don't expect 5 star service. I would only recommend if you are ok with spotty communication and have a day of coordinator to make sure your room is set up correctly.

I recently had a wedding here and overall it was a good experience. After I signed my contract the management changed and so did a lot of details in regards to my wedding unfortunately. Many things that were originally promised were then changed. Some of the staff were GREAT while others were difficult to work with or did not seem very informed. Sometimes it seemed like there were "too many cooks in the kitchen" with the staff as things were often miscommunicated. We definitely got nickeled and dimed...they'll get you for every penny!

Beautiful and affordable wedding!
My fiancé and I wanted a country club wedding in the southwest suburbs with flexible options. After visiting many different venues we finally chose Carriage Greens. The staff was extremely helpful and service was phenomenal. Everyone from the owners down to the bussers really worked very hard to make out day special. We were very impressed with the affordability and quality. Thank you for making our day so special. We can’t wait to come back and reminisce.

Carriage Greens did a wonderful job for our wedding reception! We hosted about 215 guests in the Grand Ballroom. It didn't feel cramped, guests enjoyed the food, and I never saw anyone waiting too long for a drink.
In the beginning when we were still deciding which venue to go with they were slow to respond to email inquiries if at all. On the flip side if I called and asked questions they were more timely in getting an answer and returning my call. Emails were my preferred communication since it's easier for me to email during my daily commute/on the weekends and you don't have to be within time frame of "regular business hours".
Carriage Greens staff were accomodating in the sense that they agreed to do pretty much whatever our special request was. We asked them to serve our 3 different kinds of cake by offering each guest their choice. Also, they agreed to have a glass of champagne at each guests seat instead of passing it butler style during the reception.
I would hesitate to host another event at Carriage Greens and highly recommend it to any bride and groom!
Best of luck!

I had been to Carriage Greens for a wedding about 10 years ago and remembered I liked the atmosphere and the food. After meeting with one of the coordinators and taking the tour, my fiancé and I (who had seen other places, as well) decided it was the best venue for the type of wedding we wanted and for our fairly modest budget. On the wedding day, the staff did not disappoint. The room looked beautiful; the food received rave reviews; everyone had a great time; and everything went smoothly (as far as I know!). Throughout the process, the Carriage Greens staff went out of their way to adjust to our needs, including allowing us to bring in pizza for a late night snack. I would say there only were a few niggles--1) Leading up to the wedding, it sometimes was hard to get a hold of the staff by phone and e-mail and get a straight answer about certain things and 2) we gave them a bunch of long-burning votive candles to use for our centerpieces, but they ended up using their own candles instead on the day, and their candles burned out very quickly. Otherwise, we had a great reception and had many people tell us it was the best wedding they have been to!

Food was very good for the value! The space was nicely decorated already for the Christmas holiday and it just added a little extra to my room that I didn't need to worry about. The staff was very nice and responsive to any request I had during the planning process and during the night of the reception. During our tasting we enjoyed all of our options, the only disappointing thing was not being able to taste the vegetarian dish. We only had 8 people choose this option but I think most of them were disappointed. The chicken and steak we had chosen were very good, along with the soup and salad. It is a great venue for the price and the food being good is a huge plus! The location of this venue is tucked into a residential area which I really liked and is away from any busy main roads. During our reception there was another wedding going on but I did not even noticed or run into anyone from the other room. Sometimes banquet halls can be over crowded during weddings this one does not feel like that at all. Everyone had a great time! Very worth the money!
