Beautiful venue, terrible communication
We recently had our wedding at the Foundry room and it was a pretty awful experience leading up to the day. We found the staff were really unorganized and what we had agreed to with one person was not honored by the next person we spoke to- or just not communicated to the rest of the staff. A lot of the things that I really cared about that deviated from a traditional wedding, such as having guests stay for cocktail hour after the ceremony or having the head table set up differently were a huge issue. My wedding commissioner also requested a meeting several times and was not accommodated - she had heard nightmare stories from other commissioners about the Foundry room and wanted to make sure that our wedding went off without a hitch.Sent on 19/09/2019
When I asked for things such as putting out the card and guest book at the start of the ceremony since guests would not be leaving the venue between the ceremony and the dinner i was told "we don't usually do that." My wedding was in August and I requested to meet with the Foundry room in January to confirm details and make sure that they could accommodate our ceremony time I was told it was too early. We booked the Foundry Room specifically because we had been told that we could do the ceremony, and immediately start the reception afterwards and it wouldn't be an issue. I was told in January before sending my invites that I could book my ceremony time for whenever we wanted and they would make it work but then when we finally had our first meeting with them (in MID JUNE when they promised March) the Foundry Room made an issue of having our guests stay while they flipped the room. This was the only thing in this wedding that was important to me and had they been honest at the start we would have booked a different venue. Every point of contact they promised me came months later than they said and after our decor consult (in june) we were given limited options which when we later talked to the owner she provided a much larger selection of midnight snack and decor options which weren't available to us at the initial meeting. The staff kept saying they would take care of everything when i expressed concern but honestly because communication between staff members and with me was just so unbelievably bad I was surprised this wedding happened at all. I have never been more stressed out in my entire life while being told by the venue that it would all work out when they really hadn't lived up to the promises they made. The breaking point came when days after we had gone in person to pay the entire cost of the venue we received another invoice and were told that "these things may happen as we finalize details" this may be fair but with everything else that had happened not knowing that they had been paid when the woman e-mailing me had met me in person to receive the cheque was unbelievable. At this point we had another meeting to go over my concerns which while helpful was a bit too late.
The venue is beautiful and Praveena the caterer made a delicious meal and she was honestly the best part of this whole experience. We had wanted a family style service for dinner which I Was told would be too expensive and every time i talked about the meal with anyone other than Praveena I was told it would be buffet. On the day of we wound up with family style service which was great but not knowing was so frustrating!
I wouldn't say don't use the Foundry room as a venue because it is one of a kind but know going in to it that you will need to be assertive in what you want and make sure that you are very clear on what is and isn't available to you. I wasn't very assertive and really regret that as I spent most of my wedding day stressed out and not sure what we were going to get. In looking at other reviews it also seems like they respond to all criticism so, if nothing else this review will show both sides of the story and you can make a better decision if you choose to book.

The owners are not prompt communicators. Although really friendly we had many issues with their business. They did not clean the room before our wedding ceremony, there were bottle caps on the floor and the sound system did not work even though they said it would, some lights were burnt out even though we had told them this during set up, and finally they brought their young child to our ceremony without notifying us and he made noises throughout our ceremony (we had an intimate family and close friends only wedding of 18 people). We loved the space but based on the conduct of the owners we would not recommend this business.Sent on 29/04/2018
Foundry Room's reply:Thank you Danielle for your review. I regret that your wedding was not up to par with our usual standards. Due to a family emergency, I or my husband (the business owners) was not able to attend; one of our partners was the primary contact for your wedding. I sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you suffered during your wedding; I would like to offer you a free hour photoshoot with a photographer of your choice in our space.
