We could not have been more pleased having chosen The Cotton Mill for our ceremony/reception. Every interaction with the staff was both professional and positive- and after numerous trips to the venue with a never-ending list of questions for the staff, we felt we had made new friends as well (especially my mom :) )! The welcomed us each visit with a genuine desire to help us make sure this would be my dream day. The venue itself is very versatile and was beautifully transformed. Thank you, Darla, Erin, and Maggie- for your patience, help, and hard work! We enthusiastically recommend this venue and can't wait to see what the future has in store for The Cotton Mill.

We chose the Cotton Mill because of its uniqueness, our ability to bring in our own alcohol, and overall flexibility of what we could do with the inside for the reception. We had our ceremony in the dye room and our reception in the event hall, and both turned out absolutely beautifully!! We got countless numbers of compliments from our guests as to how beautiful the venue was and how much they enjoyed the space and how we decorated it. It really is just a unique and beautiful space both outside for the ceremony and inside for the reception.

There was construction going on to the facility prior to our wedding in the reception area and in the parking lot. While we were kept in the loop as they were making changes as to what was being done, we were not made aware that any construction was going to take place at the time of our booking (our contract said that there could be construction done on the dye room outside, but didn't mention the reception area). What they did turned out well, but it did make us a bit nervous throughout, as we didn't know that was a possibility when we booked. The other thing to note is that despite us following all the instructions laid out on our contract, and us writing a separate email to confirm it was okay to use biodegradable confetti, they did keep our deposit, saying the confetti was difficult to clean up. We wrote back to Darla explaining to her (and showing proof of our purchase of biodegradable confetti), she did return our deposit back. So it was rather upsetting to get the email on our honeymoon that we weren't getting our deposit back, but they did make it right in the end.

All in all, I would certainly recommend the venue - It's a beautiful place both in-person and in the pictures we took. And being able to bring in your own alcohol saves a lot money...

Thanks for giving us a gorgeous place to get married!!!!

We chose The Cotton Mill for our ceremony and reception and could not imagine having our special day anywhere else! We fell in love with the uniqueness and flexibility of the space. With every turn you make through the space it becomes more and more unique and amazing. Darla and Erin are very accompanying and willing to go above and beyond to make sure that it is everything you could have ever hoped and dreamed for. The space makes for beautiful pictures to capture all of the memories of your special day. They also offer beautiful decor to rent which makes it a lot easier to accommodate the daunting task of hauling decorations back and forth to the venue. There are not enough words in the world to express all of the love and gratitude we have for The Cotton Mill and their staff.
WR LOVE THE COTTON MILL!

We choose the Cotton Mill for our ceremony and reception venue and could not be happier with that decision. The venue is absolutely amazing. Friends and family from across the country that came in for our wedding are still talking about how unique this place is and that it was just perfect for our big day. The staff of the Cotton Mill is top notch -- Erin and Darla were extremely responsive and accommodating - they really went above and beyond to ensure our special day went as planned. I felt like they really understood how important this day was to us and treated it as such - vs - just being concerned about another booking! In addition, we used the services of Maggie as our bartender and I think both Maggie and our guests enjoyed that. We had a little over 100 people in attendance (rugby mates, bikers, Wisconsinites and Rhode Islanders) -- Maggie did a great job keeping up with our guests -- ensuring libations were flowing till the final send off. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE COTTON MILL AND IT'S STAFF FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY! With love - Tim & Kat Bley!

Love The Cotton Mill!!! Wonderful venue that allows you to bring your own style to your wedding and reception. Great value and location. Our out of towners loved McKinney & the "little town feel". The venue is so spacious and photographs well. We received a lot of compliments from our guests!

I had my reception at The Cotton Mill. It was very beautiful and all of my guests liked it.

The one thing I had a problem with was we were not made aware of all of the rules for decorating, props, etc. I purchased a large number of sparklers and then was told that they don't allow sparklers at the venue. This was not in the original paperwork.

Other than that, it was a great venue. A little on the pricey side but a good deal if you decide to do ceremony + reception there.

The Cotton Mill responded with the following comments:

Hi there.
I am so sorry to hear about your experience at the Mill. I am familiar with this situation and can tell you that prior to your event it was ok to use sparklers. However, the Fire Marshall had come down on us a few weeks prior and said that we could not use them anymore. I am extremely sorry for how you were told this news and how late it was that you found out. The person that told you that day is no longer here and should've handled the situation differently. I apologize. But I do appreciate your feedback and thank you.

The venue is lovely for a rustic type wedding. Very spacious and somewhat unique. The wedding planner services are very weak. Inconsistent responsiveness, hard to pin down and reach the wedding planner. Communication between the facility and the planner is very weak often putting you in the middle.

As soon I we drove up to The Cotton Mill to tour it I knew I wanted my wedding there. There's so much character and history in the building that you see. Everyone there was great to work with as they made it pretty easy to set times up for visits and coordinate. We received numerous compliments on the venue as it was unique and very us.
