  • Margaret and the University and Whist Club did a fantastic job with our wedding! We chose to use the University and Whist club only 3 months prior to the date of the wedding, and they did a great job pulling it off. Any little request we had they were able to accommodate and they really held our hands through the whole process. The venue was beautiful for a classic upscale wedding and they were by far the best value for the food, atmosphere and service! We highly recommend them.

  • Margaret, along with everyone at the Whist Club, was so helpful during the planning of and on our wedding day. Margaret made sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond her job to make sure that we had the perfect wedding day. She is so easy to work with and really made wedding planning an enjoyable experience. The staff at the Whist Club was wonderful and we got comments throughout the night and afterwards about how nice the wait staff and bartenders were. Every guest at our wedding was well taken care of and it did not go unnoticed! We had the perfect day and it was made even better by the value of the Whist Club helping us stay within our budget.

  • We loved this venue! Margaret was fantastic to work with. She was very flexible and accomodating to all our requests. The venue is beautiful and the grounds have been extensively renovated. We had 75 people at our wedding which worked well for the room size, though you could easily fit more people. The food was excellent- we had crab cakes, filets and a custom chicken dish that they worked with us on. All was cooked perfectly; several guests said the crab cake was the best they'd ever had. We added an ice cream bar at the end of the night which was delicious and fun for our guests. We had an issue with our florist not putting the LED lights in our centerpieces, called them and had it fixed right away even though it wasn't a huge deal. We did run into a snag right before the ceremony- we hired someone to transport our dog back and forth to the venue for the ceremony and she ended up showing up 30 minutes late to the ceremony causing a delay. Without missing a beat, Margaret an... Read more

  • My husband and I were so lucky to find this venue for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding last September. All of the planning went smoothly thanks to Margaret who was a huge help throughout the process. We were treated to a tasting of the food options and cakes and this confirmed that we had chosen the right location. The tasting was more like a private family dinner which was lovely. Both the rehearsal dinner and wedding were perfect for what we were looking for. It is a very intimate venue and the food is phenomenal. Also we opted to use the in house florist Dominique and she created beautiful centerpieces, bouquets, and arrangements. Margaret and the rest of the staff were extremely accommodating to all of our requests and we really could not have asked for anything more. We can't thank them enough for creating such a memorable day for us and our families. We would highly recommend this venue.

  • The University and Whist Club was spectacular for our May 30, 2015 wedding. From the first day we met with Margaret to view the venue, she was kind, accommodating, and patient. She answered all of our questions and was extremely flexible with all of our changes or suggestions. After booking we had our food tasting. The University and Whist Club made this a special event for our family by allowing us to sample not only full meals, but also all of their house wines and champagne. The food during the tasting was outstanding. During the entire planning process Margaret answered numerous emails, questions, and assisted me in any way she could. This eliminated a lot of my stress and made the planning a fun experience. She accommodated my schedule for all of our meetings due to me living out of town. The Club also offers most services in house which made the planning process seamlessly easy and eliminated the stress of using unreliable vendors. Our wedding day was executed with perfectio...

  • We absolutely Loved our experience with the University and Whist Club in Wilmington! The Club truly offers an "Entire package" experience so you can have your wedding ceremony and reception there without worrying about many minor details. The catering, linens, floral centerpieces, and cake (as well as cake cutting fees) are ALL included so it truly saves $$ for an excellent experience. We enjoyed the environment so much we chose to have an intimate DELICIOUS rehearsal dinner in a private room the night before the wedding as well. It was truly beautiful! The staff was incredibly professional and so eager to help with ANY little detail - it was as if we were the prince/princess at our home castle for the day. The Club also only does 1 wedding per day so you're not feeling rushed or pushed along at all - girls have the entire upstairs to get prepped/dressed and the boys have a full sports bar (stocked and open to their use) and pool table/Foosball downstairs as well. Food is phenom... Read more

  • I was very pleased with my reception at the University and Whist Club. It is a beautiful location and absolutely gorgeous in early spring when the trees are blooming. We worked with with Margaret to help us create a smaller scaled down wedding reception/ cocktail party. She helped us to stay in budget and was always willing to answer questions via email promptly. Also the cake and the food were amazing! I highly recommend the Whist club.

  • We fell in love with the Whist the moment we pulled into the long driveway, sheltered by an old stone wall. The Club's historic charm made the decision really easy. Margaret, Cathy, Dominique, Deborah and all the staff at the Club made our wedding day dream a reality and I couldn't be more pleased with how the venue looked the day of the wedding. All my guests commented on how delicious the food was, how responsive the staff was and just how gorgeous the entire Club looked. I cannot thank the staff enough for the great job they did.

  • Absolutely amazing. Margaret and Cathy were wonderful to work with - planning was a snap and the day went off perfectly. The club is a beautiful venue and the addition of the outdoor ceremony space is a great option! The food is delicious - make sure you get the "bang bang shrimp" appetizer! I loved the "one stop shop" aspect - catering, bar, cake, flowers and service are all included and the prices were definitely some of the most reasonable in the area. My guests had tons of compliments and are still telling me how much they loved their day there. All in all, it was the perfect wedding - I'd definitely recommend giving the University and Whist Club a look for your special day!
