Demers Banquet Hall is BEAUTIFUL! I did not want my guests to have to travel to get a different ceremony site and reception site and Demers made this possible!!! We got married outdoors in the gazebo with beautiful draping to match our black and white color scheme and then guests entered through the side door where cocktails were prepared. They then proceeded to the reception hall. For us having a just black and white wedding, Demers' center pieces, chair covers, and table settings made everything come together so elegant and classy!!! I could not has asked for anything more!

If I could re-do my wedding it would be in Demers Banquet hall all over again. I loved it. The place looked so beautiful it left my guess with there mouths open. The food was great hot and delicious. I think maybe about 15+ guest arrived at the party they took out more chairs and did not get upset over it. Lisa W and Johanna were wonderful to work with with any question i had or comments. Lisa helped the day of the wedding she made sure everything was perfect. I (the bride) was really sick and she found me some lemon and water. The service was just incredible, cake great the lighting it beautiful. I loved it could not ask for anything better. Its a little expensive but its worth it and no other hall will give you everything you need in one place.
Thank you Dememers Banquet hall + Lisa!!

Demers Banquet Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding budget and atmosphere we wanted. The venue allows you to make monthly payments, which helped us out tremendously since we were a couple paying for our own wedding.

The food and service was fantastic, the ceremony area looked simple and elegant and the reception hall was clean, crisp, elegant and classy, exactly what we wanted!

Lisa was such a great help to us and really worked hard to make sure everything was perfect on our big day. She responded promptly to all questions we sent her way and was always polite and willing to go the extra mile. Lisa made our experience with Demers easy, fun, memorable and simply perfect!

For me planning a wedding was very diffculted because we had little family support. Demers worked with us on our payments and made our dreams come true. Always communicate with them no matter what issue you face they are there to help.

Vision:
I had a vision for my special day to be perfect. I wanted to walk in the hall and cry. And i did, Demers exceeded our expectation with the decor of the cremony and the reception. The food was excellent and the Dj's were beyond our expectation. The food was good, but most of all we asked and they delivered without any push back... Demers will always receive my business and so much more.

Thanks for making our day perfect. A special thank you to Lisa & Johana, both of you rock.

A 5 STAR EXPERIENCE AT DEMERS



My daughter walked into Demers in February of 2010 and knew it was the place where she wanted her wedding to take place. They pretty much have weddings here every weekend so they know what they're doing - and they know what brides worry about and do a great job of reassuring them that things will turn out great. And it did - it was more beautiful than I ever imagined! I'm so glad that the wedding is over and yet sad it will be a very long time; (if ever) that I will get the chance to experience such a wonderful night in a wonderful place with 200 people. I'm reliving it for as long as I can!



If you ever decide to check this place out - you'll find that it's a bit of a stretch in terms of cost... but I guarantee you - it's worth every penny. And this is coming from a “stretch your dollar mama”; so I know the value of a dollar! The food is delicious (AND HOT), and there's tons of options you can add to personalize your reception and make it the wedding of your dreams. Demers, chooses the crème de la crème of vendors & staff who without a doubt gave us a 5 star experience as a whole. [Special thanks to Reggie of Signature EvenTx (our DJ), Jasmine of Funpix Photo Booth and The Pourman (our bartender) all of whom are hand selected vendors recommended by Demers and FYI they should add Debra’s Floral Design and Priceless PhotosJ]



From the moment our guests arrived at the venue they were treated to valet parking, made welcomed and had an amazing experience with this Venue. Several guests have told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been too! A fun time was had by all and everything turned out wonderfully. Marina was Demers wedding coordinator for the event, as well as the person who answered a millions questions as if each one was the first and she was extremely helpful, sweet, and flexible about little changes here and there. (Thanks Marina!!)



If you truly desire a 5 star experience:

· I would recommend this site for a wedding/reception to anyone.

· Communicate & confirm every thing in writing.

· Don’t spend $$$$ and NOT have a good time.



PS. Missed you Chi.

And this is coming from a “stretch your dollar mama”; so I know the value of a dollar! The food is delicious (AND HOT), and there's tons of options you can add to personalize your reception and make it the wedding of your dreams. Demers, chooses the crème de la crème of vendors & staff who without a doubt gave us a 5 star experience as a whole. [Special thanks to Reggie of Signature EvenTx (our DJ), Jasmine of Funpix Photo Booth and The Pourman (our bartender) all of whom are hand selected vendors recommended by Demers and FYI they should add Debra’s Floral Design and Priceless PhotosJ]



From the moment our guests arrived at the venue they were treated to valet parking, made welcomed and had an amazing experience with this Venue. Several guests have told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been too! A fun time was had by all and everything turned out wonderfully. Marina was Demers wedding coordinator for the event, as well as the person who answered a millions questions as if each one was the first and she was extremely helpful, sweet, and flexible about little changes here and there. (Thanks Marina!!)



If you truly desire a 5 star experience:

· I would recommend this site for a wedding/reception to anyone.

· Communicate & confirm every thing in writing.

· Don’t spend $$$$ and NOT have a good time.



PS. Missed you Chi. Read less

The planning of the wedding itself was very good. Joanna was very helpful, and she gave us a lot of insight on things to look for in the planning of the wedding. The actual wedding day was a little different. Joanna was not there to oversee the event production, we were left with Lisa, who was overseeing a wedding for the first time. Her demeanor was not very accomodating, which was disappointing because Joanna was so patient. This was the most nerve wrecking day of our lives to this point, and Lisa fell very short of making it a stress free environment. First of all there was not nearly enough staff provided by the banquet hall to provide adequate service to 150 people. We had two servers plus Lisa, this was the genesis for everything that was subpar. Because of the length of time it took to "set up" for the reception, we had to cut out some of the special presentations we had planned (mother and groom dance, bride and brother dance). We received no real help from Lisa in the cake cutting, champagne toast, or seating of guests when it was "thought" that there were no more seats. It seemed as though she was bothered by any question that we had to ask. If Joanna had been there to oversee everything, I have no doubt that we would not have these complaints

Demers Ballroom responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review. I am sincerely sorry to hear of this experience and would like to reply to some of the concerns mentioned. I would first like to express that the bride had a personal wedding planner/coordinator at the event that should have been coordinating everything on the schedule. Demers nor Lisa were in charge of scheduling/coordinating the wedding. This was a coordinator who never communicated directly with Demers about the wedding.

1) The ceremony was supposed to begin at 6pm, but did not start until 6:40pm due to the wedding parties timing. The ceremony starting and running late had nothing to do with Demers.

2) Once the ceremony was completed, the guests were asked to exit to the cocktail area so that a reset could occur. The DJs had to announce at least 3 times for the guests to exit sot that the reset could begin. During that time the family, bridal party, and guests were taking pictures in the ballroom where the reset was occurring. The time spent resetting the hall took a total of 25 minutes. After the hall was reset, the bridal party continued to take pictures for an additional 20 minutes.

3) All the vendors present confirmed that there were at least 25 extra guests who arrived during the ceremony. Without disturbing the wedding party, Lisa directed the staff to accommodate the extra guests by putting out more seating for the ceremony and adding additional place settings for the diner at the reception.

4) Lisa’s duties during the evening consisted solely of items related to the banquet hall. She was in communication with the DJ to announce that the food was ready to be served right after the ceremony. The food service was pushed forward due to the ceremony starting late and the extended time the wedding party used to take pictures.

5) The brides wedding coordinator was informed of where the cake needed to be cut. So as far as providing additional assistance with the cake, we are not sure what else she expected. The cake was then taken to the back, properly cut, and brought back to the buffet. The DJ’s announced that the cake was on the buffet to the guests.

6) Providing service for the champagne toast was never mentioned in the contract. There was no bartending service or anything else that was included in the contract.

7) To blame Demers for not having time for their “Special Presentation” is absurd. The “mother and groom dance, bride and brother dance” would have taken an extra 10 minutes to do. Starting the ceremony late and spending extensive time on taking pictures ate away at least an hour from the event.

8) This was Lisa’s first time conducting an event at Demers, but she has extensive experience in the bridal industry coordinating wedding and providing other services. Lisa confirms that she was concerned when she realized an extra 25 guests showed up. From her own words ” I know you had never dealt with me before the day of your event, so that may be why you feel this way because you were so comfortable with Johanna and again I want to apologize for any impression that I gave you, especially since it is not a good one! I treat my clients with care and concern at all times and they are very pleased with the things I help them with.”

We sincerely sympathize with any client who is not satisfied with the way their event turned out. Our staff works very hard to accommodate and provide excellent service. We will reflect on this experience by providing additional insight to the upcoming wedding parties, setting proper expectations, and the importance of having a high-quality personal wedding planner.

Demers provided us with great service since the beginning. Our wedding coordinator Chi was so GREAT! She helped us organize everything, and was there to answer any questions we had from the get go. The day of the wedding she was there early to decorate, and make the place look absolutely fantastic. I would have not asked for more. Their staff made sure everything was set correctly, and that there were no problems.

I couldn't be happier with what we got :D

The day of the wedding my cater did not show up at all. I had 50+ guest hungrily waiting for food. Not missing a beat, the staff volunteered to order and pick up some food from a near by restaurant. They came through and saved my reception.

Thank you Demer's!!!

After 4 bridal expositions, countless calls, visits, and hours spent driving all over Houston, my wife and I had only 10 months before our wedding and we had not yet selected a venue. Tired, we decided to give Demers a visit. We were never disappointed. Chi Nguyen and the entire staff at Demers walked us through setup and coordination of every single detail of our wedding day. From invitations to napkins, color and style, food and drink, the service and the willingness to make sure that every detail of our wedding was perfect went unmatched. Chi ensured excellence in everything. We could not be more blessed to have Chi and everyone at Demers usher us into wedded bliss. My wife and I truly consider Chi part of our new family. Demers Banquet Hall has an event nearly every weekend and they do not pay a red cent for advertising – their service speaks for itself. I could go on, but it’s time you checked Demers out for yourself. And if you are wondering if this post is fake, paid for, or maybe submitted by the staff at Demers, feel free to send me an email directly and I will happily share more of our experience with Demers!

While searching for a venue to host my mother's 50th birthday party, I actually ran across an ad Demers placed on Craigs list for their "Orchid Room".I called them immediately and made an appointment to tour the venue. The main reception hall was breathtaking! It was so beautiful but too much square footage for my mom's party. The "Orchid Room" was the perfect size to accomodate my guest list which was 50 per. max. I was informed that my mother's party would be the very first event held in that particular room. Since we would be the first to have something there nothing was set up at the time, so I booked the room solely based on how the main reception hall looked. I trusted that they would decorate beautifully. They also, assured me that they would. The day of my mom's party I was so amazed at how great of a job decorating they did! They definately exceeded my expectations! The room was simply beautiful! It looked nothing like the empty room I booked initially. I also want to add that this room has a separate entrance from the outside so your guest do not have to go through the main hall to get to it which is very convenient. I loved the chocolate fountain and cheese mendallion! I was so impressed by the professionalism (everyone was so nice) of the entire staff that I would definately host another event at Demers.

I found out about Demers on this website and instantly wanted this to be our reception venue. It also turned out that is was close to the church that we were married in. I was so excited when the date became available. The minute you walk in the door, you are completely amazed at how beautiful the place is. It's very elegant looking and the lighting in the ballroom adds to the ambience. All of our guests commented on how great everything looked. One thing that I really love is that the dance floor is big enough that there was plenty of room for everyone to dance and enjoy themselves.

Marina was great to work with. She helped us determine what we wanted for our reception and everything turned out great. We were able to use our own caterer. Take the drive over to look at the venue because the pictures do not do it justice!

When my fiance and I started to look for a venue, our first appointment was with Demers. Aside from falling in love with the look of the ballroom, the staff was so energetic that we went away with any amazing feeling. After running around town to view other locations, we made the decision to book with Demers. They were also one of the few hall which really tried to work with your budget. We knew we were getting a great deal for our money.

Marina, our coordinator, shared with us all the things that might get in the way of make our special day come alive. She was able to recommend an awesome DJ, John De Leon, who had my family dancing til 2am. The whole wedding just came off really well.

I wouldn't have changed a thing! THANKS DEMERS!!!

I just had the reception here, but not the ceremony. First of all, the coordinator made it really easy to put this thing together last-minute. It came out looking like I've been planning it for years! Our guests were definitely impressed and thought I spent way more. Food was soooo good. And the cake. It looks pretty even with the regular lights, but I'm glad I went for the colored light display. It gave it a fun club feel. Lots of fun, wish I could remember more, this is just what stood out the most I guess!

Everything was PERFECT! The staff is incredible, and for the price, YOU CAN'T BEAT IT! All of my guests complimented on how BEAUTIFUL and ELEGANT everything was! To top everything off, the food was AMAZZZING!!! (they should have their own restraunt!)

I would definitely recommend Demer's!!!! Read less

I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing experience I had with Demers! I am a very picky person, and am hard to please. Everything went just as planned, with no hickups. Marina, the event coordinator was very sweet and easy to work with. She really listened to my thoughts and concerns, and made my big day flawless. I would highly recommend Demers to anyone who wants an amazing and beautiful wedding!
