What a great place. Had my wedding reception at European Crystal in August. Everything was excellent , we worked with Anna from the beginning till the end and she was awesome she helped us with everything from picking the menu to decorations( it was very easy since you can order everything thru them we just told her our colors and she gave us great suggestions and show us different set up options and samples of linens & lighting) At the end the ballroom looked absolutely beautiful we could not ask for more. Our guests were very impressed especially with the fireworks we had for our entrance( Thanks Anna for suggesting those if it wasn't for you I would never even knew they existed :) ) Not to mentioned the food - exceptional for a banquet hall we never expected it to be that good , we knew it was going to be good after we had our tasting but you are always worry ok they can cook for two for the tasting but how is it going to be for 300? But they definitely know what they doing the food was perfect. I strongly recommend European Crystal to everyone how is looking for a great place for their wedding.

European Crystal was beautiful. Staff was excellent, and most important the food was the best! We fell in love with this place as soon as we walked in. The professional staff just made it that much easier for us to book them for our reception.

I have so many wonderful things to say about European Crystal. My husband and I decided to sign with them about a year and half before our wedding date. Our coordinator Michelle worked with us from the day we signed to the day of our wedding. The whole planning process was a dream come true for my mom and I. Every time we came in Michelle and the other sales staff (Anna, Krystyna and Alice) always greeted us with open arms when we came in. We became very close to everyone at their office which just made such a warm feeling..Everything we had wanted was written down in our contract- which made my husband feel good about that. we did add some extra items later on but knew the cost of those items prior. we also did a food tasting prior to us signing which is really what sold us..the filet and sea bass was out of this world. both sets of parents were so impressed.

We had the Grand Ballroom for our wedding and had 320 people. My theme for my wedding was accents of gold and plum purple. I ended up changing the color of the tablecloth to a plum color and sticking with their standard white napkin- which is beautiful by the way. I also upgraded to the gold chavari chair which is $4.95 and trust me i did my research on the prices and that was the best price out of all the banquet halls we visited prior to..i think the most I've seen for those chairs was $12 a chair- now that's just crazy!! my husband didn't understand what was the point on spending $4.95 a chair but after we got our wedding pictures he now totally agrees i made the right choice :) we also ended up going with their led lights which is also extra..it definitely made the room to the next level of wow!! my room was glowing with purple. it made my room so beautiful!! uhh- totally worth it for pictures!!

we ended up going with a wedding planner for just the day of from their staff who was able to work with us the entire day. Anna showed up to my house at 8am took care of all the things that needed to be done, she was with us at the church lining everyone up at the church and making sure i was doing okay ..she was such a gem and i could not do it with out her. she even was there at the reception helping Michelle do everything love those 2 girls.

the food here is just outstanding. from the appetizers, to the soup, the intermezzo- MANGO-my favorite! and don't forget the entree- filet and sea bass with my favorite potato- au gratin- to DIE FOR!!!! everyone at my wedding could not rave enough about the food but the potato was delish!! my wedding cake was actually brought from an outside bakery. European Crystal was kind enough to give me a credit since i brought in my own cake. My cake was from Oak Mill Bakery..i had the ambrosia cake- WOW! it was definitely pricey-really pricey-but worth it..if you have the $$ to spend then go for it !!

the sweet table was from European Crystal's pastry chef- everyone raved about it as well..it was definitely the cheaper way to go ..Overall i am just such a happy and satisfied customer . European Crystal and especially the staff here really did made my dream wedding. I definitely could have went to downtown and had my wedding at the Drake and spent $300+ a person but for what?!? the food in downtown lets just be honest here at the weddings that Ive been to at the high end hotels are gross!! it really had no comparison to my wedding. I am soooo happy we chose this place - every dollar we spent here was worth it and could do it all over again are definitely coming back here for our baby shower (when we have one) and any other family celebrations that will happen in the near future!!

thank you again to all the staff at EC..your job is not an easy job at all dealing with brides like me- but you all do such a great job at it. I could not have done this with out you all !

I had my wedding at European Crystal Banquets on 9-10-11 and am a very satisfied customer. My wife and I have nothing but great things to stay about this place and the staff. We booked with them in February of 2010 and had about 7 months to plan our dream wedding. We worked with Krystyna and she was with us every step of the way. We rented out the entire faciltiy and had our cocktail hour in the Parlor ABC room and our reception in the Grand Ballroom. All of our planning and details came to life on the day of our wedding. My wife was in tears and i almost came to tears. Our favorite decoration that we chose was the white dance floor with our initals engraved on the floor and the drapery around the room. those 2 items were the icing on the cake. The food that we chose was outstanding..the entree that we selected to serve our 300 guests was filet minon and sea bass. Our extravaganza sweet table we chose was out of this world. Our guests could not rave enough about the food, desserts and decorations. My wife and I are extremely happy and would do it all over again at EUROPEAN CRYSTAL !

We worked with European Crystal for our wedding and had pro and cons. The venue itself was beautiful, the food was delicious and everything was pulled together very nicely and looked great. The only thing was that we clashed with one of the people working there. She was cold and didn't seem concerned about us personally being happy. We had to ask several times to have the air turned up (guests were complaining), we were rushed out at the end of the night and other promises were not fulfilled. All in all, what matters to me is that our guests were happy and had a great time. Everything looked beautiful and it was great from a guests view.
