10 Reasons to Book Your Next Event at The Glenwood

10 Reasons to Book Your Wedding at The Glenwood
by Sandra DeMaria, Irregardless Catering Director

I’m blessed every day with the opportunity of meeting folks while planning fundraisers, corporate meetings and weddings – and we know how complicated and confusing planning big gatherings can be.

At The Glenwood, my team of Catering Consultants are here to make sure that your events are successful and easy for you and your guests. We feel like we are Raleigh’s ‘best kept secret’, because at The Glenwood we offer a large, comfortable facility – totally handicap accessible with plenty of on-site parking. And we’re just inside the belt-line up from Crabtree Valley Shopping Mall.

Our outdoor amphitheater in the wooded area behind The Glenwood is a magical spot – always 10 -15 degrees cooler in the shade – guests feel like they are in the country!  Afterwards, your guests can dine in air conditioned luxury inside.   And, in case of inclement weather, there is always the back up option of the wedding ceremony or presentation to be held indoors.   

Brides and Grooms have their own suites to prepare themselves – the Bride and her Maids in adjoining rooms overlooking the Ceremony Amphitheater and the Groom and his Groomsmen below in the Games Room Groom Suite with Bar, pool, ping pong, shuffle board, fuzball and poker tables.

There is more – we are very affordable.  The facility fee to rent meeting rooms or the entire facility always includes tables and chairs, as well as elegant white china, glassware and flatware and dance floor – often an extra rental price at other venues.

When greeting your guests or colleagues, you want to be sure that service and meals offered are delicious and good quality – with Irregardless Cafe Catering you know you are in good hands with our proven farm-to- table cuisine, with ingredients coming from our Well Fed Community Garden.  And The Glenwood’s fully equipped kitchen prepares each meal to order, ensuring freshness and top quality.

The large ballroom seats up to 220 guests seated and offers a state of the art AV System,  microphones and WiFi throughout.  Adjoining meeting rooms seat 10 – 80 guests. Personalized decor transforms the rooms to fit many themes. Local Crabtree hotels offer ‘The Glenwood’ special group pricing and personalized shuttle service to and fro. Consider hosting your event during the ‘off season’ (January, February, March, July & August) and enjoy a 10% discount off the weekend rental fee.

You are in great hands with our team of experienced professional sales and operations managers.  We run the day to day operations of The Glenwood, making sure that all of your set up is handled from floorplans to food and clean up too. Our Catering Consultants will assist you with every stage of planning, making sure all you are responsible for are inviting your guests.  

I told you that The Glenwood was ‘Raleigh’s Best kept Secret’… maybe not for long.  We look forward in serving you here at The Glenwood!
