Wedding Advisor

Planning your wedding can be exciting, yet overwhelming experience. We hope this information assists you as you plan your special day.

What will I need to know before contacting the hotel?
First, know what matters most to you on your wedding day. In the beginning stages of the planning process, do not limit your dream in any way—our wedding specialists will be delighted to guide you in making your vision a reality. Next, we recommend that you have an idea of your desired dates (or season) and an estimated number of guests.

Should I make an appointment to see the hotel?

You are always welcome to visit the hotel at any time; however, we highly recommend that you contact our wedding specialist in advance to set up a personal appointment. This will assist us in making prior arrangements so that we may better anticipate your needs.

Can I have my reception in the pre-function area?
Yes, you guests can enjoy welcome drinks at the pre-function area while having waiting for the doors to the wedding dinner to commence.

Is there a specific time our wedding ceremony or reception must be held?

We do not have 'set' start and end times.

Do you offer inclusive wedding packages?
Each of our weddings is unique and special, and we take great pleasure in customizing all of the details to reflect the personal preferences of the bridal couple. We are delighted to provide you with an all-inclusive per person wedding package once we have customized the package to reflect your particular needs.

Will we need a wedding coordinator to assist us with our plans?
Whether your entire wedding has been planned since childhood or your research is just beginning, we strongly recommend that you select one of the professional wedding coordinators from our referral list to assist you with your special day. The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead will also provide you with a wedding specialist on staff to coordinate the details for events hosted in the hotel.
