  • The staff at the Merion was AMAZING! We worked with Sue and she was great. So helpful and nice. Any questions I had, she responded right away and really was so helpful. The banquet staff on our wedding day was also fantastic. I really couldnt have asked for anything better. The food was also delicious. Our menu consisted of the champaign chicken, the sea bass and the grilled rib-eye. They were all excellent and i couldn't decide what i wanted to eat on my wedding day. I got the sea bass and it was the best sea bass i've ever eaten. we also had so much food at our wedding it was awesome! my husband and i are foodies and i HIGHLY recommend the merion.

  • Venue: The Merion/Chapel and Empire Ballroom A+++++++ The Merion was amazing. I worked with Stephanie and she was so helpful. Anything I needed done throughout the planning process was taken care of as well as any questions I had. I used the Chapel for my ceremony. We had a Catholic/Jewish ceremony with about 125 people. We were able to accommodate anyone with disabilities since the Chapel had an elevator. There was a Matre D and Captain that helped my then fiance and I stay separated prior to the ceremony and also coordinated everything for us as far as the lineup of bridesmaids and groomsmen and how to walk in and where we should stand during the rehearsal. The cocktail hour, from what I heard, was amazing. I really wished I could have attended but we were taking pictures. All my guests were telling me they thought that was dinner and stuffed themselves. There was a martini bar, Asian food station, groom station with mini cheese steaks, sausage/peppers, boneless wings and an ic... Read more

  • The Merion was an incredible venue for our wedding! It was all that we dreamed of and more! We still hear compliments from everyone who attended. The cocktail hour is like no other! The reception set up was beautiful! The dinners were all delicious! Desserts lined the room and top shelf drinks were poured all night. One of our guests favorite memories was the pork roll, egg and cheese sandwiches that were at the door at the end of the night. Top of the line service from everyone, especially Stephanie- she was the best wedding coordinator anyone could ask for! She listened to what we wanted, offered suggestions and made our night magical!

  • Our wedding day at the Merion was perfect! The Merion is beautiful and had so many great spots for our bridal party to take amazing pictures! The cocktail hour and dinner was exceptional! To this day people still remark that my wedding had the best food they ever had! It is a little bit pricey but is well worth it! The Merion staff is very attentive and personable and made my day organized, stress free and FABULOUS! I would highly recommend the Merion to any bride! Good luck!!!

  • There isn't enough room in this box to explain how incredible the Merion is. From the moment we booked, they treated us like family. They are incredibly professional, kind, and made our wedding day truly unforgettable. Whatsmore, their food is five-star caliber, and quite plentiful. There isn't a guest who neglected to tell us how unbelievable the food and service was. I would be remiss, however, if I didn't attribute the success of the evening to Sue, our wedding coordinator. She made every single detail I dreamed of come to life. She is a wonderful, wonderful, person to work with - and we truly consider her, and the rest of the merion staff, part of our family.

  • We had a great experience with The Merion. People are still talking about how fantastic the food was. I do have to admit that I liked the cocktail hour food better than the sit down dinner, but that's because the cocktail hour was so amazing! I even made a special request--to have a soft pretzel stand with assorted dipping sauces and The Merion made it happen. We really loved our wedding reception here and would definitely recommend it to others. It's a bit expensive, but they gave me and my husband a discount since he was in the military and just returned from a deployment. I only mention that since I think it was an amazing value for us, but we couldn't have afforded it otherwise. I still think that with the amount of food they provide, the pleasantness/helpfulness of the wedding coordinators, and the beauty of the venue, it's a good value for the cost.

  • 5 Star Reception for the most perfect wedding day! The Merion was phenomenal and far exceeded my expectations. Stephanie, our coordinator there, was such an asset and we are definitely looking forward to booking more events with them in the future!

  • The Merion was amazing. I would definitely recommend The Merion to anyone who is looking to have their reception there. We worked with Susan from start to finish. She was very professional and was able to answer all our questions and was there for us whenever we needed her. We were in the Palace ballroom as the Skylight room was not available on the date we wanted. The food was awesome. Our guest are still amazed and can't stop raving about the cocktail hour and their dinner and how good it was.

  • First of all, our wedding was beautiful. We received many compliments on the food and the location. Don’t get me wrong, the Merion is lovely. They are just a lot of hidden fees. Everything was paid in full before the wedding. Then the minute the reception was over, the Merion coordinator comes running up to me asking about a $500 fee for the complimentary parking. Yes, they charge $500 for COMPLEMENTARY parking. Also, we paid an additional fee to have a cotton candy maker. About five people were able to get cotton candy before they shut the dessert room down because the reception time was over. It was such a waste of money and I wish I had known before I added it. Another thing, we decided to rent chairs from another company- the Merion charges a $500 fee to move their own chairs out of the ballroom. Now, if you use their company to rent the chairs, there is no fee. Another thing, the Merion had told us that as the guests were leaving the reception, they would be handed s... Read more

  • The Merion is a beautiful venue, and the food was excellent. All of our guests were so happy with the amount and quality of the food. Vincenzo went out of his way to accomodate all of our requests. We were happy with everything from this vendor, my only complaint is the lack of communication, and many unreturned phone calls from my event coordinator.

  • Our reception was in the "Skylight Ballroom" at the Merion which is a gorgeous ballroom with a dome glass ceiling, a circular dance floor and so much space that it feels very grand. The cocktail hour room is the perfect size and the service is great. The amount of food is AMAZING, all of my guests raved to my husband and I all night long about the variety, quality and taste of the food. The service is amazing, every room in the venue is gorgeous and the choices they offer allow you to customize you're wedding and make it perfect for you.

  • We walked into the The Merion and saw the Skylight ballroom and were done. We chose the Merion based on the room and everything else fell into place. Cathy was amazing and the rest of staff made our weekend getaway just an all around amazing experience. We fully recommend this gem in South Jersey and wouldn't want it any other way. The food was amazing, the staff was amazing - our family and friends are still raving about the place and this is a credit to the Merion - Thank you sooooo much Cathy!!! javascript:submitForm(); Natasha and Ricardo - July 23rd, 2011
