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.

The Cotton Mill was great. SO beautiful and unique!!!! We found working with both Darla and Tina to be a wonderful experience. (Someone had previously commented that they did not use Tina as their coordinator and that caused problems. We did not hire her services either but, we found her very helpful when we got to work with her and she never displayed anything but a helpful, professional attitude. In fact, I would say she went above and beyond for us!) They both answered emails quickly, answered all of our questions and gave great suggestions. The venue is absolutely amazing, it is not cheap, but worth every penny. I would recommend paying for the AC for the rehearsal night, we did not and it was 94 in the room during the rehearsal.

This venue is absolutely beautiful. Such diversity in all the areas of the building. We chose to get married outside and all of our guests ranted and raved about how beautiful it was. If you have a large wedding and reception, and want something unique, this is the venue to go to. I am a groom, and I know it's the brides' day, but, I will have to say that they actually made me feel like it was "all about me" as well. lol The only negative thing I would have to say about the location is the event manager, Darla. She was not very quick to return calls or emails, and she was very rude at times. Luckily, she has an assistant who is a wedding coordinator also, who was very helpful to us when we were frustrated.
Overall, this venue is beautiful and we would highly recommend it.
