After many years of decorating several clients had asked us to decorate & plan their weddings. We always had a passion for this kind of thing, so we said yes. After several weddings we started our journey looking for the perfect place for a wedding venue. Finally after 7 years of looking we found the perfect location… an old country home sitting on 6 acres of much needed love just 16 miles from downtown Tuscaloosa. It took a lot of work, but it became the perfect Southern Venue. Tuscaloosa’s finest only full service Wedding Venue where all you have to do is say “I Do”.

This was my only daughter's wedding. I travel quite a bit and knew that I would not have the time to do all of the running around and planning. Southern House took care of absolutely everything. We were pleased with every single detail. They are great to work with.

Southern House and Garden provided flowers, cake, catering, and venue for my wedding. I couldn't have imagined a better wedding day. They set up everything (chairs, flowers, food, cake) and also did the clean up after. The food was amazing, flowers were gorgeous and I had a stress free day! My friends are still talking about southern house and it's been over a year. I would recommend everyone to check this venue before you even consider anywhere else!

The venue was very accommodating to our budget and our styles. Not being very traditional with our needs for the wedding, as well as having a smaller wedding, we were very pleased with the outcome. They made it very easy for my to plan my wedding in Alabama from my home in Las Vegas! My only dislike were the cakes. The wedding cake looked rushed and was a little dry; it was icingless and I believe made that day, but it was apparent by the icing between the layers that it was done hastily and without care. The groomscake also looked thrown together. It was a basic sheet cake with a piped A on it. Not what was requested. Everything else was very well done though, from the decor, the spiral ceremony seating arrangements, the succulents and roses, to the food. My side of the family is more high maintenance and they were all quite impressed! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to have a large glamourous wedding, or a small indie ceremony (which was what we did!). Well worth it!

The venue is beautiful, but the service we received was less than satisfactory for many reasons especially considering the cost of the venue. We were very disappointed with the lack of flexibility and unaccommodating attitudes we received from the women who own and run the venue and would not recommend this venue to others based on the service we were given by the staff. Also a note: if you have your reception inside as well as outside of the barn (an option provided by the owners) the barn will not remain cool and your guests will end up sweating to death, because the air can only be lowered to a certain temperature without freezing up the system. We were told later the doors have to remain closed, but clearly your guests aren't going to open and close the barn doors every time they want to go outside...especially if that is where tables and the bar are located (which was also a suggestion from the owners). We also had to have family members go get our own ice right before the wedding, because all of the ice that we paid for Southern Home to provide with the bartender was already melted by the time of the wedding because they bought it too early. I could go on, but needless to say there were many disappointments which is why I would not recommend this venue for the price.

Southern House & Garden responded with the following comments:

Angie and Terri are very shocked at this review!!! After hosting hundreds of weddings with very happy families and Brides we are sorry to find out through a review that one Bride was unhappy at the end of the day. We strive to please everyone and make their day the best day of their life. As we all know it can be very hot in Alabama in the summer, we do have 2 AC's in the barn, as well as door attendants at the barn doors. We wish this Bride the best.
