    Very Classy

    Pros: Gorgeous venue, staff was very organized and professional on the day of the event, they do a lot of the organization of how your day will go, which was super helpful. Food was good.

    Cons: It was really hard to schedule our food tasting because they had a ton of Jets playoffs events, and they kept bumping us back and not being really helpful about scheduling it. At the end of the night they were supposed to gather up our decor and store it for us, for me to pick up a few days later, and I didn't get all of my stuff back (it wasn't anything valuable, but just a note to make sure they know what all you brought so you can get it back)

    The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre's reply:

    Hi Shelley,

    Thank you so much for sharing this feedback; it only helps up improve our operations. The Jets Schedule was trying and did affect our business and sometimes in a way we did not anticipate. For this, we sincerely apologize. In terms of holding items for future pick ups, we will return to the practice of ensuring all décor and guest owned items are loaded at the conclusion of the events. Again, thank you for your feedback.

    I had the opportunity to oversee your wedding and it was such a beautiful day, and the overall experience from your guests was commented on throughout the day. Thank you for joining us at The MET!

    We had such an amazing experience working with the people at the Met. They helped us put together the perfect day. They provided the food, venue, music as well as some table decor for the day. They were flexible and able to understand and bring to life everything we wanted for our wedding day. It was so beautiful and everything went off perfectly.
