We recently had our wedding in the White Hall, which is the big room with the chandeliers. We LOVED the venue itself, was gorgeous and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful room to have our wedding in. The venue people were pretty good to work with, but there were definitely some challenges along the way. After signing our initial contract, the venue changed management companies and contracts changed completely. In the end, they mostly honored our original contract, but it took many back and forth emails and months of negotiating to get to that point. There were also a variety of last minute limitations/extra costs that we weren't expecting - the rooms they give you to get ready in don't open until 3pm on the day of the wedding, which is way too late for anyone to realistically use, so it's extra per hour to get your room earlier that day. Also, you cannot bring your own alcoholic beverages (or even regular beverages and food) into those getting ready rooms, you can only buy food/drinks from the venue (at a very high price!). We weren't able to have a sparkler exit like we had originally planned because there would be many extra costs in terms of security, closing bar early, etc. All in all, I would recommend the venue for the sheer beauty of the space, but make sure you cover ALL OF YOUR BASES in asking questions/planning so you don't get blind-sighted by last minute extra costs.
We recently had our wedding at Southern Exchange at 200 Peachtree and the whole night was absolutely perfect. The venue is gorgeous and all the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We got several complements on the venue, the decor and the food. It was the perfect venue for a wedding!
Beautiful venue,difficult staff, limited amenitiesReviewed on 1/11/2012 Manisha S
I fell in love with the 14' chandeliers and the unique layout that would allow for my 550-person seated wedding reception. The pillars created multiple blind spots, so we put up TVs to show the stage. They had no table linens or china to use so I had to go out and buy my own. The event manager kept bugging my DJ and family to end the party on time as if it was a test we'd fail if we went over time. Didn't get to dance at the end of my reception because they were sticklers on their time and didn't allow for any flexibility on when we chose to end the party vs. pack up. We had the hall til 2am, with the plan being to have the party til 12am and then 2 hours of break-down. But I see no problem in us continuing to enjoy our night while the staff break down. Why does it matter how we split our time as long as we're out by 2? Was very annoyed with their service and lack of consideration.
