I cannot rave enough about this place! Our wedding reception was so perfect. Everyone went above and beyond. The bartender was great and the photo booth was a hit. Holly helped me every step of the way and never got annoyed with my dozens of questions. The DJ was very sweet and didn't mind requests. Good food, great staff and beyond affordable. Oh and Reverend Bryant is a wonderful man and we were so lucky you recommended him to us.

My husband and I had our reception this summer at Royale Orleans, and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. First of all, Holly is fantastic to work with. She was helpful in the planning process, kept in good communication, and was able to help us handle some last minute changes to our guest list. On the night of the wedding, the whole operation ran smoothly because of Holly and the rest of the Royale Orleans staff's services. I heard from guests that everyone from the bartender to the DJ was professional, friendly, and engaging. We liked also that all the ballrooms have permanent dance floors, ample room for the DJ, a nice bar area, a large buffet area, and enough room for seating. We didn't at all feel crowded. Also, Royale Orleans clearly has the schedule for the evening down to a science from all their years of hosting events. We didn't feel rushed at any point, having enough time to eat, mingle, and dance. Finally, Royale Orleans is one of the best bargains you can get in St. Louis for a reception. Their food is good, their prices are reasonable (and the tax rate in their area is less than other places), their gratuity is included in the cost they give you, their service is exceptional, and the venue itself is just nice and classy. We'd encourage anyone planning a wedding in the area to go check them out!

My husband and I were extremely happy with Royale Orleans! They were extremely helpful and fairly priced. We were actually shocked at the final price of our reception. They include catering, bar service, DJ, centerpieces, photobooth option, cake services, and other services. The food was EXCELLENT!! I had multiple guests say that it was the best "wedding food" they'd ever had. We were extremely satisfied with our DJ services as well. The staff was super friendly, helpful, and courteous. Our reception was a blast and I would recommend Royale Orleans in a heartbeat!!!

I was married June 25th 2011 at Royale Orleans. This facility and their staff exceeded my expectations! They made it so stress free for myself and my husband. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married! Only thing I would change about the venue is letting the couples choose their own DJ and having some dressing rooms built for the brides and there brides maids to get dressed there. Other than that it was one of the best venues in Missouri!

The music, hall, ice carving, personnel were great.
When the reception was over they were helpful in taking the presents out to our vehicle and asking if there was anything they could help us with. The bartender was great also. A plus........

Royale Orleans is a great venue. The planning was very efficient and the event itself was wonderful. We had the ceremony and reception there. The food was delicious and they work directly with the bakery for the wedding cake as well. The DJ was fun and our reception was excellent. Royale Orleans is also fair priced which is a huge advantage. I would reccommend to anyone.

They worked with me on every detail and helped with making sure that all food that was gluten free stayed away from that which was gluten. They were flexible and willing to do whatever it took to keep things going smoothly. They night was so fast that I still can't believe it ended so quick.

I booked this a year out but it only took a few minutes to actually get the contact and the date down in the calendar as booked for me.

They were very good about doing what we requested but they had their own opinions about certain things. We wanted to use a photobooth and they were very adament about not using one. They let us use one and it turned out fine but they tried to talk us out of it. But other then that I would use them again. Great food, price, and entertainment. The DJ was wonderful! They had a great package with an open bar, ice sculpture, and upgraded china that fit perfectly in our budget!

Reasonable with price. I would have loved it if my guests would have been able to go for seconds before they cleaned out the remaining food that my husband and I purchased. I didn't even get a chance to eat the food off my plate before it was cleared. Not good considering I was 4 months pregnant at the time. Also would have liked it if we were able to choose our own DJ. They should definitely consider hiring a different DJ for their revenue. Not only did he not play half of the songs that were on my list I sent him, but he played the the same song for me and my husbands' first dance as he did for me and my dances dance. Thank goodness I hired my photographer on my own because he had to tell my DJ that he was playing the wrong song. However, the place was nicely set up and very pretty.

Everything was great except for the food ended up a little different than what we had imagined. For instance, our menu read baked ham, so I expected slices from a large ham. We were served sliced bbq ham. The food tasted great, it just was not as elegant as I had expected.

We had several issues with Royale Orleans. They said they would provide us with a cake, if we chose. We went to a "tasting" from their house baker and it was a joke. They didn't even sit us at a table to taste the cake. The "representative" was ill-informed and unhelpful. Needless to say, we went with a different baker.

Royale Orleans does not let you bring in your own DJ. While they are upfront about this aspect of their facility, we were not allowed to meet with our DJ beforehand. We had a brief telephone conversation (roughly 5 mintues) with him the week of the wedding. My fiance and I were adamant about not having an annoying person on the microphone all night. We did not encounter a problem with our DJ, rather the owner of the venue was an absolute nightmare..making our guests feel as if they were on a gameshow and interrupting the best man during his speech with music. A person from our wedding party had to insist that he not pick up the mic the rest of the night. Once this request was made, he did leave us alone.

I will say that the bartenders were curteous and very good at their job. All our guests were served dinner quickly and the food was okay. My overall advice is keep searching for a venue. While our experience was not a complete disaster, it left much to be desired.
