Maymont was an absolutely beautiful location for my daughter's wedding. We used the Italian Garden for the ceremony and the Nature Center for the reception. The sales staff were very professional and responsive. They had a representative on site for the rehearsal and the wedding who was very helpful and made sure everything Maymont was responsible for was in place. The Maymont staff had walkie talkies which helped with communication between the two sites when I was couldn't reach my wedding planner by phone or didn't have it on hand. The price seemed a little high to me but I didn't price any other venues. I paid extra for an extra hour, to rent the exhibit area, to rent the tram, and to have the golf cart available for those who needed assistance. It is a little more difficult venue than a hotel because you have to bring everything in and the ceremony and reception sites can require driving. The two hour set up time goes by really fast. I rented the exhibit area for cocktail hour to have extra space in case we needed to use part of the reception area for a ceremony rain plan but food and drinks are not allowed in there and my guests didn't know the exhibit area was open so I recommend a sign. I also recommend a rug where the carriage drops off the bride for the ceremony so she doesn't have to walk throught the dirt, and bottled water for the guests if it's a summertime event. I did not have a transportation plan for the wedding party because I thought they would all have cars parked near the ceremony site but they didn't. Fortunately, Maymont held the tram over until pictures were done, past the time I rented it for, to take the wedding party up to the Nature Center. Overall it was a very beautiful venue, Maymont did everything they said they would plus more, and I was told by guests that it was like a fairytale wedding.

My husband and I got married in the Italian Gardens at Maymont last June. Yes, it's very expensive, but the scenery just cannot be beat. The garden and the grounds make for the most gorgeous pictures. The only complaint I have, is that there wasn't much communication the day of the wedding. Yes, I probably should have asked exactly where the dressing room was located, and yes, I should have verified exactly what time the horse and buggy were going to pick me up, but I honestly feel, even a year later, that that's something that should have been communicated to me by the staff. They were all buzzing around, but no one really mentioned either of those things. A bride has enough to think about during the wedding planning and the day-of; a little help would have been appreciated.

My daughter and new son in law had an amazing day Nov 8th for their outside wedding in the Italian gardens! It was 70 degrees, sunny and beautiful. The grounds were gorgeous. The only ding in the whole wedding was the driver of the tram to take guests from the garden to the Nature Center for the reception. He didn't seem to like the idea that he was supposed to take the guests to the Center when they wanted to go instead of when he thought he should do it. We the parents had finished our picture taking and he wouldn't drive us back to the Center as Rebecca had said he would, he wanted to wait until there were no more trips to make. We had to go get Rebecca so she could tell him to take us so we could join our guests!

We had just our reception at Maymont and everything was followed through as promised, as far as I know. We did have an event coordinator (independent vendor), so I'm not sure if she would have told me if anything was out of place or whatever. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

We had our wedding in the Japanese Garden and loved it. We did have to pay for a tram to shuttle guests, but it was nice for them. We had a horsedrawn carriage and our wedding coordinator for the day was excellent. If you plan right, this place can be amazing!

They have a list of vendors to choose from for food, cake, etc. so if you have your heart set on using someone not on their list, it will cost you! They also charge for use of their tram service, so if you are getting married in the Japanese garden (As we did!) you clearly can't make your guests walk that long walk in dress clothes, so you MUST pay extra for the tram. As much as you pay for the site, you would think they would throw in the tram at no charge...
