Only have your wedding reception here if you are okay with bouncers behind your shoulder the whole time staring at everyone. They kicked one of our 19 year old family members out of the reception for having a sip of wine. They were extremely rude.

Eberhard Center is a fantastic place to hold a wedding. It is right on the river in downtown Grand Rapids and the cocktail lounge area has large windows overlooking the river and the lit up bridges at night. There are several bars, restaurants and hotels within walking distance which makes it easier on guests. Erik, our wedding coordinator was SUPER helpful throughout the whole process. The prices are reasonable as well, and Grand Valley students and alumni get a discount on wedding packages. I would recommend hiring a good decorator, as the main room can look rather plain otherwise - but from my personal experience, I couldn't believe it when I walked in the doors. The place was transformed and and the night turned out perfectly!

We worked with Wendy and she was wonderful. She was responsive, helpful, paid attention to all the little details I was concerned with, and was always available. The location is great and our guests commented on the wonderful view. We not only had our reception there we also had our wedding. Wendy made every accommodation to make it work beautifully. She worked with our event designer, ICandy, and between the two of them the venue looked amazing. The Eberhard Center was also located next to the downtown hotels which made it easy to walk to for all of our out of town guests.

Cindy was so great. Things got a little tense between my mother (typical) and I and Cindy handeled it with grace and tact. They stayed the entire time and made sure my day ran smooth

Everyone had a great time at our reception. The view was awesome. The food was great. Nothing went terribly wrong (that I know of). Most of the time they were very flexible. I could tell that they wanted my day to be perfect. There weren't many hidden fees or anything. Our biggest problem was getting answers on our questions. They didn't always email you or call you back right away and sometimes we would have to call/email a couple times to get an answer. We felt sometimes like we were getting different answers from different people which got to be a little frustrating, but overall everything went smoothly. I couldn't have asked for a better night.

The Eberhard Center is an amazingly great choice for a wedding reception. We were allowed to come set-up the night before our wedding and anytime the day of the wedding. As part of their wedding package, they provide wedding guests with complimentary punch, fruits & veggies, and crackers & cheese. You also get an ice sculpture of your choice (free of charge) as part of the package. Best part of all this, is the price. While you do have to use their caterer, GVSU alumni get a $5 discount per person, and the rental fee is only $900 (Saturday weddings, not sure about Fridays).

I loved having my reception at the Eberhard Center in September of 2006. The view is spectacular, and that is something that all the guests were impressed with. They have a lobby type area where you can have a cocktail hour with hors d'ourves and drinks. You can also have use to the grand piano in the area. We made use of it and got many compliments of an elegant reception. We also were very impressed with how the food tasting was held. Also, there is a $5 discount per person on packages for GVSU students and alumni. They were very accomodating, letting us decorate the day before, and the morning of the wedding. The price may seem high at first, but what you get for the money is totally worth it. The price I show includes what I paid for liquor (we had an open bar), the food (which included the cocktail hour), and the site rental fees.
