My husband, Joseph, and I were married at Mystic Lake on 5/27/17 and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Our coordinator, Lindsay, was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our entire process. We had our reception in the Grand Ballroom, which was actually her... Read More suggestion since the room was available for that night. She worked with our DJ to coordinate lighting packages. And, the food...OMG the food!! The food was amazing! And, just as good was the service. Just anything we needed at any time, the staff was incredible! (From a last minute request to have iced tea at the start of the reception, to serving additional appetizers for the bridal party, to a few instantaneous dinner changes/additions...no hesitation at all by the serving staff to provide anything to anyone.) We got SO MANY compliments on the ballroom, the food (LOTS on the food), the accommodations...just everything about the reception! The room looked amazing, thanks to Lindsay and the fantastic staff there. The pricing was also a key point as an all-inclusive affordable package, no nickel-and-diming, plus we were able to be creative with a few things like the lighting and beverage inclusions. We're SO happy we made the choice to go with Mystic for our reception and we wholeheartedly recommend them for a wedding venue!

I really wanted to write a good review because people at the wedding had a great time, but as I write my thank you’s, I realize this only because of my photographer, videographer, and DJ. We stayed at the hotel the night before to make things easier and so we could do the... Read More rehearsal. We met with about 3 different managers before they let us into the ceremony hall only to find that it was even set up yet. The day of the wedding came, and I got a call from my florist saying she wasn’t allowed into the ballroom to set up, let alone just drop the flowers off into the room. I had security just drop the flowers off into my hotel room and our wedding party ended up having to set the flowers. Come time for the first look and photos. We worked with our coordinator to have the photos be on the golf course, but when we get to The Meadows Golf Course, the manager refused to let us out onto the course as if he didn’t know about the wedding and that they don’t allow couples out there. Luckily, one of the drivers agreed to take us out there telling us they do this all the time. Photos complete, I realize there is no signage telling our guests where to go so as the bride, I’M running around trying to figure out where everything and everyone is. Luckily, my photographer and DJ took over and help communicate to guests on where to go. Ceremony is just about to start, and my DJ is the one who eases my anxiety and lines us all up to begin the ceremony. Coordinator has been nowhere to be found up to this point in the day. Ceremony done, most of the anxiety gone, I go to get a drink from the bar, a drink that I had already paid for and hosting for the night (meaning I’m clearly 21+) and the bartender refuses to serve me because I’m not carrying my ID around with me. They then start charging our guests for soda while they serve soda for FREE on the casino floor. All that said and done, we were told that the venue would clean and all we would have to do is pick up our things in the morning. I get to the ballroom in the morning and find that everything is just shoved into a corner and I still have to do my own cleaning. We come back from our honeymoon about 5 days later knowing we had left stuff at the hotel. We get to hotel security and as the bride and groom, we weren’t allowed to pick up ANYTHING because we couldn’t describe it in detail and we weren’t listed as the owner of the lost and found items. I immediately email our coordinator letting her know so we can just get everything the next time we’re at the hotel. She agrees, but 3 weeks later and we haven’t heard from her. I give them a call and they tell me that anything left over 30 days is distributed to the tribe and community. I went into my wedding weekend with an open mind, but seeing how much work my wedding party, DJ, photographer, and videographer did throughout the day to keep things running smoothly, I cannot recommend Mystic Lake as an appropriate wedding venue especially with coordinators who are were not present the day of the wedding.

I could not have asked for more from the Wedding Team at Mystic Lake! This was the most affordable and prime location for us to have our wedding! The staff was on point the entire night and the food was raved about months after the wedding was over. Working with Lindsay was a... Read More breeze, we didn't feel stressed or pressured into doing anything that we didn't want to go through with and she actually listened to what WE wanted and delivered undoubtedly. All of our friends and family still talk about that night even after a year has passed. We had a couple of hiccups along the way but in the end we couldn't of asked for better. The price is great for what is included and the convenience of the hotel being right there can't be beat especially with family coming in from out of town.

My husband and I had originally booked our venue at a small golf course (13 months prior to our wedding date), and when we were finally invited for... Read More our taste testing (9 months later), that's when we discovered that their food was as terrible as their customer service. With only 4 months left, we were scrambling to find a venue that would cater to our needs and that's when we stumbled upon Lindsay at Mystic Lake Casino. We were always interested in Mystic Lake, so we called to inquire about their venue, and as we explained our situation regarding the bad experience and bad food, they were able to schedule an in-person meeting with us the SAME DAY. We were so impressed when we arrived because Lindsay had requested that the chef put together some dishes for us to taste while we discussed details. WOW factors: 1) Lindsay's sincere concern for our concerns, and 2) the chef personally served us and explained what he was serving. What a great first impression! We were blown away at how much they cared, and at that very moment, that's when we KNEW this would be the place in which we can entrust one of the most important days of our lives. My husband and I got married in the Grand Ballroom on November 11, 2016 and we could not be more happy that we chose Mystic Lake. Most importantly, we were very pleased with Lindsay's attention to our needs, her professionalism, her time, her flexibility and her superb customer service skills!! Thank you so much, Lindsay!

We highly recommend the pizza as a late night snack; it was a huge hit! The decorations and lighting team did a wonderful job too; they had great suggestions on how to make different parts of the room pop! Another great advantage of Mystic Lake is that they do the tear down and clean up at the end of the night for you! When our reception was over we were able to leave the banquet room and continue having fun with your guests instead of having to tear down all the tables at the end of the night! We were also able to reserve some cosmic bingo tables after our reception for our guests and us! We all had a blast! As a part of the package, Mystic provided the bride and groom with a suite for the night of the wedding. We were able to stay in the same suite that the bridal party got ready in the morning so we didn’t have to worry about moving our belongings from room to room on the wedding day. This was such a huge convenience, as we didn’t have to worry about changing rooms or moving our belongings throughout the day. Overall our experience working with Lindsay and all of the Mystic Lake staff was fantastic. We would highly recommend Mystic Lake as a venue for your reception as the accommodations that are available onsite are second to none. We will definitely have future events here!!
