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 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.

Loved this venue for my daughters wedding as well as "The Dye Room" for the ceremony. So nice to have the wedding and reception at the same location!

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.

I absolutely LOVE this venue!! It's very versatile for the look you are going for. You can make your wedding gorgeous no matter what you are doing. The pricing is a little high but is so worth it!!

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.

This was such a unique place and we received many comments on how lovely it was. There is a reception hall that I believe seats 300. And a very unique room that is off to the back called the "Dye Room." This building used to be a cotton processing mill. And the dye room is an old section of the building that the roof is no longer on, it's all brick and gorgeous.

The Cotton Mill is a beautiful venue which is why we chose it for our wedding and reception. The issues that we ran into were with the employees running the Cotton Mill. We chose to have the ceremony outside in the Dye Room and the reception inside in the Event Hall. When I arrived at the Cotton Mill two hours before the ceremony was to start, the tables for the reception had no chairs. When we called to find out about them, we were told that the guests were expected to carry their chairs for the ceremony down the hall to the reception. This was after we had paid hundreds of dollars for the Dye Room and was just about the craziest thing that I had every heard. I also had an issue with one of the employees who does wedding planning on the side. We chose not to hire her for our wedding, but every time we would contact her, she would bring it up. It got very old and seemed very unprofessional.

We chose the Cotton Mill to be the site for our reception after absolutely falling in love with the building! I love historic buildings, so it was definitely a perfect fit, and I also loved that when you first drive up you are a little skeptical because it appears to be a rundown, abandoned warehouse, but then when you go inside you are blown away by how cool and absolutely beautiful it is! I will say, the management was a little difficult to work with and were told differing things on multiple occassions, and it was annoying that in this day and age they only take checks, no cards allowed. But the biggest mishap was the fact that our tables and chairs were not set-up properly. We were told each table would have 8 chairs, but the guys that did the set-up made a mistake and only put 7 chairs at a lot of the tables, which definitely caused issues when the guests arrived and we had assigned 8 people per table. I then didn't appreciate that they tried to put the blame on us since we had been there decorating that morning-- apparently we should have double checked their work and counted the number of chairs at each table. I'm still really happy that we decided on the Cotton Mill as it looked beautiful and our guests loved it! Just make sure to count the number of chairs at your tables :)

We loved the Cotton Mill for the historic aspect. We had our ceremony outdoors and reception in the event hall. Darla was extremely helpful and very responsive to emails throughout the whole process. I loved the renovations done outside to the dye room. Everything looks great! It's a beautiful place if you want something not so traditional!

We love the CottonMill and are having our wedding and ceremony there next fall. We originally booked June 25, 2011 but we moved it to October when we found out our Maid of Honor is preggo and due June 12. So if you know of someone who wants a June wedding at the CottonMill it is open!!!!

The venue is beautiful, and they set it up perfectly - exactly what I asked for! It's nice because you can decorate however you want to suit your tastes. Darla is very blunt sometimes and can take awhile to return your emails, but the money is worth it. It is very chic and antique looking.

Very unique and great venue! We had around 250 guests and there was still plenty of room. Darla was very pleasant to work with and would allow you to come see different set-ups for events hours before they started to get ideas for our event. Darla also had several different vendors to recommend if needed. The best part was that you could bring in all your own vendors! We were also able to bring in our own alcohol as long as we had TABC certified bartenders and a security guard, which saved us a ton! By being able to bring in your own vendors and not being tied down to using a certain caterer or the venues beverage service you can really save big! Our wedding was in August and we didn't have a problem with the Texas heat. They had the AC cranked and going strong during the event. We were also allowed to set up the day before since they didn't have an event going on, which was a really nice perk. Several guests commented on how they loved the venue and at its uniqueness. I would highly recommend it!

The Cotton Mill is an absolutely great place to have a wedding. We used the Dye room for the ceremony and then had the reception inside. We received so many compliments on how cool the place was. The only things that the venue supplies is tables, chairs and table cloths. You have to bring everything else. There is also not a kitchen there so you cater has to be self sufficient. We would recommend this venue to anyone.

The Cotton Mill is a wonderful place for receptions and parties. The space is great and you can really mold it into what you want. My wedding reception was beautiful largely in part to the simple beauty The Cotton Mill offers.

Beautiful and unique location. Great service staff with a down home feel. Very flexible: no required vendors to use. Great location if you want to make sure you can bring in all your own stuff without paying extra fees (like most hotels do). Creates a very intimate and romantic feel at night even though it seats nearly 350. I completely suggest this venue!
