My FH worked there through High school, so before we got engaged he always joked about how we could have our reception there and I always said absolutely not.
After I met with Florence to at least give them a shot, I wanted to book right then and there!
We are having our wedding at Crystal Park which is their smaller facility in Allen Park and having our ceremony at Taylor Conservatory!
They have a package that they advertise as "everything but the dress and tux" its so convenient and if you think about it, only having to write one check at the end of it all??? SOO worth it! PLUS they're all great people that work there! I would recomend this venue to any of my friends getting married!!

I got married and had my reception at Crystal Gardens on October 21, 2012. Crystal Gardens is an absolutely beautiful place to be married. The chapel is fully decorated and fits in with any color scheme. The reception hall was beautiful and my guests are still raving about the food. The gazebo outside is beautiful for pictures. The only drawback was the tight schedule for the wedding rehearsal. We were only allowed an hour 3 days before the wedding, which was pretty tight for my large wedding party.

Crystal Gardens is a very nice venue, but like others have their flaws. First, lets do the good. The food is great, the value is up there as well. I had hors d'oeurves hour with hot and cold finger foods, fruit and vegetable tray, and a strolling butler with champagne with a strawberry in the glass. there was so much food at my reception, and they never ran out and never let anything get low. I had plated dinner that exceeded the price for the amount of food that was on the plate. All guest were FULL! What I did not like was the professionalism that "Florence" gave me and my wedding coordinator the day before. They do not like bending the rules for decorating your reception room if they are not doing the table and chairs. I was told that I was "lucky" that she is allowing my coordinator to come in at 12noon to get started. Needless to say, my coordinator had to do 450 chairs with covers and sashes total + tables+ charger plates and favors + head and cake table and all the in betweens. And all I can say was that after I told "Ms. Florence" how LUCKY she was, the staff put together the tables completely, excluding centerpieces, and my wedding coordinator did start decorating at around 10a.m. A bride nor the coordinator should not have to go through that no matter where she booked her event at. But it is a beautiful venue.

Tammy was great to work with as was everyone else on their staff. We had our reception at the Grosse Ile Country Club and the Crystal Gardens staff made sure that everything went just right for our special day! The food was excellent and we had many complements on the chicken marsala! We used the supreme package which was a great way to go because everything was included in one price! Thanks to all the staff that helped make our day so special!

We had our wedding reception at Crystal Gardens. We loved how they had a package deal it made everything super easy to get our planning done. I really believe everything they have there is of great quality. We know of quite a few couples who have also had their receptions at CG in Southgate, and all the guests say the same thing of how they put out a great package! I don’t think we really had a complaint at all with CG.

I loved crystal gardens when I initially came to your the place. My planner was very friendly at first but it seemed as the months passed it seemed my planned was more quick to get us out of there. The day of my wedding I had specifically asked that my cd not play pass a certain point because I didn't find an unedited version. Guests at my wedding were appalled when they heard it played. They didn't ask me before they cut my cake so my husband and I didn't feed cake to one another. It was very frustrating when they started telling me to get my stuff out of the bridal suite. They had other people that they could have went to. I overall was happy with the food and the place in general, I was just dissappointed how I was treated at the end.

Crystal Garden's motto, "We're More Than You Imagined For Less Than You Thought," is nothing short of the truth. The Supreme Package is everything a bride is looking for on her special day...especially a bride planning from another state. For me being out of state it was basically a "one stop shop." I could not have been more happy with how smoothly everything went and how lovely my dream day turned out. We received numerous compliments on how elegant everything was and how delicious the food was. Attending my first wedding after my own, I cannot tell you how much more relieved I was at the package we received for our wedding at the price we did. This particular couple had to have paid DOUBLE what we did and we had more options, such as open bar, endless food amount, etc. Definitely everything your looking for in a venue...clean, friendly, elegant!!!

With Crystal Gardens you pay less to have the best. I received so many compliments about how beautiful the venue is and how accommodating the staff was. They assisted all 200 guests and the food was amazing. They had two other events going on that night( a class reunion and another wedding reception) but it felt like we were the only event going on that night. They were also very flexible with the final guest count and vendor selection. I looked at about 30 venues and I would choose Crystal Gardens again. I've also recommended them to a few brides-to-be!!!

We were only able to have our reception here since the times they had available for the chapel were hours apart from when we wanted the reception to start. Which was unfortunate since Southgate was way out of the way for our guests BUT we shopped around a lot and other venues couldn't compare to what we got at Crystal Gardens.
The food was great, the set up was perfect and our mc was helpful. My only complaints were the hidden fees (tax on rental of their chair covers & set up of table linens we delivered) that weren't brought up until we went over the final costs only a few weeks before our wedding was to take place there and all I got was a blank stare from our rep Kristen when I asked why this wasn't mentioned before.

The hall was beautiful. They did a great job setting up. The pastry table is worth every penny. However, I asked for the arch to be gone in the chapel and it wasn't. I asked on the day of the wedding for it to be removed and they couldn't, so it is there in all my photos....I was not happy about that. I think that the waiters were great! the service was wonderful. The lady who takes the reservations (Tammy) is not very professional. I think she could be a little more patiant with brides who have concerns and be a little more upfront about hidden costs that Brides have no control over. Flo was very helpful to fix any fees that I was not happy with and was very helpful. I know that "things happen" so, overall, I think they did a very nice job. Their preferred vendors are great!

I was surprised to find Crystal Gardens was within our budget given their high reputation, but they were a better value than all the other halls we looked into in the downriver area such as the Grecian Center, Arnaldo's, Orlando's, etc. Since we had under 200 guests (115) we had our reception at the Epicurean House which is in Trenton, MI. This worked out for the better I believe because there is only one room there so there's no worries about other parties going on on your special day. I booked Epicurean with about 5 months til the wedding date and was happy to find that it wasn't already booked, as most people will tell you to book the hall a year or more in advance (which I think is a little extreme). The hall was just as beautiful as the main Crystal Gardens center, our MC was amazing and attended to our every need (though I didn't even have to ask her for anything she had it all covered!) the servers were great, bartender too, and the best part is the standard bar package is included in your dinner price!!!! No other halls give you that value. You can upgrade the bar if you want but my guests didn't care about brand name alcohol they just wanted free booze lol! The venue has single use bathrooms which is soooo much better than a stall when you & your bridesmaid are holding up a wedding dress to use the facilities! Great experience, highly recommended.

The venue was very pretty and elegant. The only thing that I didn't lie was that they nickled and dimed you for every little thing and you weren't able to pick which one of the three rooms they had (we actually didn't know what room we had until 5 days before the wedding, so it was kind of hard for the coordinator to plan things). The food was excellent, a good price for the surpreme package (if you dont add things like a different flavor cake or bringing in your own seat covers), the cake was excellent, the MC was awesome and very attentive. I enjoyed working with the staff at CG and I would recommend this establishent to anyone.

My husband and I had our wedding at Crystal Gardens and we could not have been more satisfied with every aspect of their service... from the setup... to the constant communication.... to the friendliness of the staff.... to the generosity of their time and facilities. Everything was exactly as planned, if not better. There were items that I forgot to bring to the wedding that they supplied to me last minute, no charge! This is truly a place that puts the couple first... not the establishment!! Everyone commented on how delicious the food was and the service. The inside and outside of the facility is amazing and wonderful for photos. Florence is the sweetest lady around. Ask for her when booking if you want to have a great experience. I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to Crystal Gardens. Highly recommended. Use their beautiful chapel as well for your ceremony, it is gorgeous.

I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to Crystal Gardens. Highly recommended. Use their beautiful chapel as well for your ceremony, it is gorgeous. Read less

Crystal Gardens was a wonderful place to get married. All of the staff was very helpful. The only negative thing I have to say about Crystal Gardens is that they do not have an area for the Groom and his party to get ready or make last minute corrections, so the guys have to get ready in the parking lot. I would recomend this vendor to anybody who wants a beautiful wedding at a reasonable price.

I had my reception at Crystal Park in Allen Park in October 2008. I had a wonderful experience with Jen as she helped with everything I needed. I chose Crystal Park as you it was a smaller venue site that provided more for the money. I would recommend Crystal Gardens to anyone.

I could not believe how affordable and beautiful at the same time this place was!! Our wedding was perfect and I highly recommend Crystal Gardens in Southgate, MI. I did the Supreme Package and I think you should ask about it...it was so affordable. We got married in the ceremony room and then walked right over to the room in the same building for the reception (It's all at one place so no drive time in between wedding and reception) I paid one really low price for all of these things: ceremony room rental, reception hall rental, dinner (buffet style), open bar, invitations, wedding cake and the dj. Pretty cool package. The staff was very attentive the entire time and everything went so smooth. The only thing I will say that I did not like, was the fact that someone else was getting married too within in hour of me.

The place is very pretty and the bellman was friendly. I didn't like that there were two other weddings and a recption in that building that day and my DJ was high and showed up late. However the food tasted great and most of the staff were nice.

The reception they gave me was spectacular, the food and drinks were wonderful, the master of ceremonies was great, and the actual facility looks very very nice. The facility was very well maintained and the presentation of the food was excellent.

Their supreme package cannot be beat. I was planning this wedding during my senior year of college and this package made everything so simple because its a one-stop-shop. We got the venue, food, drinks, dj, cake, and all kind of extras for a great price.

My ceremony was actually at the Howell Crystal Gardens but I could not find it on here. The hall was beautiful and the food and service at the reception were awesome. My only complaint was that while I was planning the event it was difficult to get ahold to the representative that was in charge of my reception. Other people were always available to help, but it seemed like they had no clue about what I was talking about when I'd have a question. Overall I would recommend the hall because at the end of the day we were all very happy!

Crystal Gardens is a beautiful venue for your wedding. If you are looking for elegance this is the Downriver place to be. They basically have it all and will do it all for you as long as you are willing to pay the price. It was worth every penny and I will always have lasting beautiful memories. The people working there are so sweet and are very helpful at answering any questions you might have. Crystal Gardens is a must!

this venue was very nice . Although there were 3 rooms and you were not allowed to pick which room you would like to have for your wedding. They choose according to the other events they have on the same night and the number of people attending. So although they are all nice if you like room # one with the nicer outside patio area or room 2 with the better bar set up you may not get it if another party has more or less people than your attending.

It's a beautiful venue- but nothing out of the ordinary. I think the price is far more outrageous than it's worth, though. Weddings are so expensive in the first place, I would think if I'm paying a lot of mey, everything should be over the top and up to date... including the carpet.

We had a very large wedding and Crystal Gardens was able to accommodate all of our needs. The service and food were perfect. Our food was sit down service and they were able to serve 450 plated meals of filet and fish that were delicious. We received so many compliments. It was truly an exceptional experience and I would recommend them for a wedding!

The Epicruean House is owned by Crystal Gardens in Southgate. They were great. I had originally booked at a different hall owned by them and decided later that I didn't like that hall. Crystal Gardens let me switch to the Epicurean House with no issues. They also did a great job setting up my favors, place cards, memorial candle, wine glasses, etc. for the reception.
