I found the owner to be very rude and very inflexible. The only reason the day was enjoyable was because she had one of her employees, Carrie, there to actually run things on our wedding day. She is definitely not a people person and I'm surprised she does as much business as she does. I felt nickeled and dimed for everything. She charged us a separate amount to hold our ceremony there, but we had already paid her for the 8 hours we were there that included the ceremony time. It made no sense to pay again for something that was held within the time that we had already paid for. She charged us an additional fee to cover her poles from her tent and the pole covers are typically used for other peoples ceremonies and when we drove by the location during other receptions they were already up. She also talked us into renting heaters that she said needed to be delivered. But when the providers of the service called they said all they needed to do was take the fuel to Forrestal's because the heaters were already there. She wanted us to only use her sound system for our ceremony music and when I insisted that she allow my DJ to play the music she said we would lose setting. When her employee used the internal sound system, my guests said that they had trouble hearing the announcements and missed things like the cake cutting and bouquet toss. She was very rude during my rehearsal and it made my wedding party uncomfortable. What I found the most sad was the fact that my friends who actually dealt with her would not recommend the location to friends.

Forrestal's was a great place for a reception. It combined indoor and outdoor spaces which is great since you never know what the weather will bring.

If you want a smaller venue in the Madison area, check out Forrestal's It is so cute and unique! We loved everything about it. Our guests had a blast and we were all treated so well every step of the way. I cannot recommend it enough.
