This venue was amazing! Everything was beautiful, the service was amazing and the food was fantastic. Lauren, the venue coordinator, went above and beyond, she was always available and did a wonderful job running the event. The home is beautiful and we received compliments on it all day. The food was so, so good; the staff was very attentive and we had our own personal attendant to serve us all day, Dayna was amazing. It was the perfect venue for our brunch wedding and I would definitely recommend them.

The moment I saw the Aldredge House I knew I would have my wedding there. It is one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen. I also appreciated that it was a turn-key experience without feeling like a wedding factory. The house definitely has a lot of charm and personality.

Included in your price is linens, plate/glass/silver wear, and tables and chairs. They will handle any additional rentals you may want. The only catering company used is Food Glorious Food, and oh my goodness they make great food! All my guests were really impressed with their dinners. People have come to expect wedding food to be less than stellar, but that is not the case here. FGF goes above and beyond to make delicious, classy meals.

Lauren Twitchell is also great to work with. I really felt like she cared about us, and wanted to work to make our vision come true.

I will say, the room where the dancing happens was a little warm, but that is to be expected when people are going from the outside in and doors are being opened frequently. Also, you are not allowed to have speakers outside after a certain time, so it can be hard to hear toasts and things like that. And, the beautiful stringed lights/lanterns in the backyard are an extra $750. My groom and I thought it was worth it, but were a little surprised by the added cost. You are also charged for the lights to be removed if you choose to not use them.

All in all, I loved the Aldredge House. Probably the best kept wedding venue secret in Dallas!

Beautiful venue, allowed us to make several changes to the originally provided contract to meet our needs.
*Any flowers/arrangements must be pre-arranged before arriving to venue
*The outside string lights are beautiful, even in the day time! (Adds $750 to budget)
*Communication improved as our event date got closer.
*Day-of-coordinator (comes with use of venue for ceremony) makes everything flow really smoothly.
*Costs add up quickly: service charges (valet required), and decor.

The Aldredge House was the perfect venue for our wedding in early January. We have had dozens of people from our wedding tell us that it is the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Food Glorious Food is the sole caterer for the AH, and they did an excellent job, even making me a special vegan meal. Megan and Brittany at AH made sure the wedding went off without any hiccups. The attention to detail and the level of service by everyone at AH blew me away. If you are looking for a unique venue (i.e. not the typical ballroom reception), then you should check out the AH. The house only holds 175 people, and sometimes they will go up to 200, but keep in mind that you have to have an indoor/outdoor wedding with anything over 100 guests I believe. The dancefloor is in a separate room, a separate ballroom I guess, and it worked out perfectly. The flow of the house was very conducive for a reception. I would select the Aldredge House again if I had to do it all over.

What an amazing venue! My husband and I were just married at the AH on 10.29.11 and it could not have been a better experience. Megan was an absolute joy to work with. While she wasn't my wedding coordinator, she acted like one. She was always so sweet and prompt to respond to my many questions. The house is gorgeous and makes a perfect setting for weddings, whether indoor or outdoor. We had a smaller wedding (about 100 guests) and the layout of the backyard and inside were just perfect. We had a courtyard wedding with a quartet, then the dinner was outside, while the DJ/dance floor and cake cutting were all inside. This made perfect use of the entire location. I cannot say enough good things about Megan or the AH. I highly recommend having your wedding here. The venue is gorgeous and you will not find a more pleasant person to work with than Megan. Also, with the beautiful location/ambiance, I feel that the venue was priced extremely well.

My Bridal portraits were scheduled here. We had a bad experience with the Adlophus Hotel - they double booked us - but the Aldredge house came to the rescue and proved to be cheaper and a much better venue for picutres. We had the entire house to ourselves, with full access to a changing room and inside and outside the home. We didn't have to worry with others being in our pictures, it was just me and my photographer and it was great! I couldn't be happier with the pictures and the look of this beautiful old home!

We had our wedding here and it is a great venue. They have a beautiful back yard and garden, and the interior is classic and timeless. It's ideally suited to a smaller wedding (under 100), otherwise you would need to utilize the back yard for seating. Megan at the Aldredge House was fabulous throughout the whole process. She remembered and took care of each and every detail... no matter how tiny. She also responded well to the bad weather on our wedding day and helped make our back-up plan just as gorgeous. We were dreading getting married in front of a fireplace, but it turned out so beautiful. Now we can’t picture it any other way. Megan even went out of her way and actually delivered my overnight bag to the hotel after we had forgotten it. I also need to mention that Food Glorious Food did a great job with our menu. I was concerned because they don't do tastings, but the food was delicious and the presentation was very nice. I shouldn't have worried!

Megan at the Aldredge House did a fantastic job with our wedding. The food and the bar prices are a bit high, but the food was the best I have ever had at a wedding! My wedding was scheduled for outside and we had high chances of rain so the decision was made to bring everything inside. The percentages changed before the guests arrived and Megan moved everything back outside...she did this on her own. She really went out of her way to make sure our big day was perfect!

The Aldredge House is a beautiful place to have your wedding. We were hoping to have our ceremony in the back but weather determined that we would have it inside. It was still beautiful. The advantage of having your wedding at this location is that you do not have to do a lot of decorating inside because the decor inside the house is beautiful and timeless. If you are having a smaller wedding (ours was less than 100) this is the perfect spot. More than this you would probably need to rent tents for the back yard.

We wanted a wedding venue that would enable us to have our ceremony and reception in the same location. It also had to be in Dallas proper, and Aldredge House fit the bill perfectly. They worked with us to have a really amazing buffet with appetizers, beer, wine, china, crystal, silver, linens, and extra tables, all within our budget! Our cake was included in the pricing through our deal with them, but I will do a separate review for our cake (Frosted Art, Dallas)!

My only complaint is that I thought a pasta station was included in our pricing, but somewhere during "negotiations" it fell off the price sheet and I never noticed until the wedding! But that was my own fault.

Everything was absolutely beautiful and Melinda and the staff were so accomodating and took great care of us. I was also able to use the venue at no cost for my bridal portraits, which was so lovely.

I definitely recommend this venue!
