My Piedmont Room experience was wonderful until the day of my wedding! We worked with Laura who was attentive, professional and helpful throughout the planning process. The actual venue was a complete disaster the day of my wedding which threw all of her efforts out of the window! The day of the wedding the air was not working which we found out from one of the hostesses who was at the venue while we were at the church. We just thought the room was hot because it was summer and the room is surrounded by windows. When my mother expressed her disappointment with the temperature the following week, she was given a credit of $500. This was before we found out that they were running around like chickens trying to get the air fixed before we got there. Never once did they say anything to anyone in my family about the air and how hot it was. There is a huge fan in the background of my entrance photo. We had to turn the groom's cake so you couldn't see it was melting from the heat! There are pictures of everyone sweating including myself. There were beads of sweat all over my mother's face and her hair was wet! One of the guests gave me a hand held fan which my husband can be seen holding to my face. I didn't drink during the champaigne toast because I was hot. Myself and the bridesmaids missed our salads and our food was at the table because we in the bridal suite for 30 minutes trying to cool off. I purchased over 150 sparklers for a send off and only 20 were used because the only people left at 9:15 was my wedding party and our parents. People said they were uncomfortable. I was so embarrassed!!! I wanted to leave my guests not have them leave me. Needless to say I still have a bad taste in my mouth only because I feel like they should have taken some responsibility instead of trying to hide the fact that indeed the air WAS NOT WORKING. When my mother wrote them a second time indicating that she later was told that the site knew that the air was not working she received no response. Bottom line- DO NOT USE THE PIEDMONT ROOM!
The most gorgeous wedding location in Atlanta.
I went to an outdoor wedding in October at Piedmont Garden Tent. It's located at Park Tavern in PIedmont Park... the view of Piedmont Park and the skyline sunset was just breathtaking. The garden setting with weeping willow trees as a backdrop to the bridal party was so romantic. After the outdoor ceremony we all went into the large tent-covered patio for a really fun reception. The band was set up on the patio, the food was absloutely fabulous, the service was so prompt and professional. I wish I'd know about it when I got married! I'll definitely book any event I have at Piedmont Garden Tent.
