The German American Society venue was perfect for our needs. They had the tables and chairs so I didn't need to go elsewhere for them. The wedding and reception were both easily held there, as we sat at the tables for both the ceremony and reception. There was plenty of room for the ceremony, reception, and for the bridal party to get dressed downstairs. The price was very reasonable.

I won't elaborat much - others have hit the nail on the head. The German American Society is beautiful, reasonably priced and Becky is AMAZING! She gave me full attention throughout the whole process and I felt like a top prioity at all times. Her advice and help was priceless and on my wedding day I didn't worry about a single detail - and it was flawless! She was there from the first deposit through the final send off and I can not say enough good things about her. In addition the society wen't above and beyond and allowed us to practice our dance on location during other events and made us feel like family. We are definately going to sign up to be members as we have never felt so welcome in our lives. Please check this place out!

There is not enough space in the review box to give positive feedback to future brides. The German American Society of Tulsa is the perfect place to have an any event. The building is beautiful inside and out. It was perfect for our New Years Eve Wedding. We were able to transform the room from ceremony to reception in moments. All my guests are still raving about the event being held all at one location and how much they loved it! Perhaps the best kept secret of this location is Becky, the building coordinator. She made planning a wedding fun and easy. She was there for me through emails, phone calls, meetings with vendors and so much more! She is so easy to work with and I could never thank her enough for all she did for me over the past year of planning.

The German American Society of Tulsa is the perfect place for a ceremony or reception or BOTH! I am still getting phone calls from people saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

When my husband asked our daughter what she though of her wedding..she replied "perfect"! What more could a parent ask for? The German American Society is the most beautiful venue with the most character in Tulsa. Becky Adrian is a lifesaver. She walks you through the entire process, offering very helpful advice. She made the process enjoyable and easy. A one-stop wedding shop! I cannot thank her enough for her help. We will remember that night forever. With one meeting you can cover your entire wedding and reception to-do list. It was almost so easy, my daughter and I kept second guessing ourselves, thinking "did we forget something?". Becky keeps you on track and also keeps you in your budget. Thanks a million to GAST of Tulsa. I'd love to have another event there someday!

Everything at our event went wonderfully! The German American Society is a beautiful venue for a wedding reception. It was the perfect size for our needs (100-120 people). With all of our guests, the hall was not crowded yet looked full for a classy party atmosphere. The facilitator for the venue is fun and incredibly professional. She personally met us around town on a Saturday to handle all details with the bakery and linen provider. She also handled the caterer and DJ service and ensured their on-time arrival and delivery of goods. She was present for the entirety of the event itself to ensure all things went smoothly, and they did. Her services relieved soooo much stress from us it is truly invaluable. When we walked into our wedding reception, things looked perfect and we will never forget it!

I could not be happier with my daughter's reception! Our experience was absolutely perfect and low stress from the moment we committed to the date until we waved goodbye to the bride and groom. We were not from Tulsa, but Becky arranged everything so we could plan the entire event in one day. The vendors were helpful and top notch and everyone had a great time, including me! This was so easy that on Friday, a friend called and asked if we needed help. I told her we were just relaxing and she asked if I would plan her daughters' weddings. I told her that she should just call Becky. Thank you so much!

This was a beautiful place to get married. I love that we were able to have the reception in the same place. The lady that works there bent of backwards for us. They have catering packages which I highly recommend. This made the planning a lot easier and the food and setup was wonderful. They also have a DJ and bartender package which once again helped tremendously and they did a wonderful job. Definitely a place you need to go check out!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at GAST on 9-19-09. Becky Adrian at the German American Society was amazing to work with. As an out-of-town bride I had to rely on Becky to do most everything for me. I had a million questions and she answered each one and usually within a couple of hours! Becky was so great that she managed to get all of my appointments set over one weekend so that I could choose everything that we needed for the wedding reception while I was in town. It was awesome and it saved me a ton of stress.

The day of the wedding was perfect. Becky was waiting outside of the venue for us when we arrived and she had the schedule timed perfectly. Once inside, the venue was gorgeous! It was set up exactly how we planned and it was even more spectacular than I had imagined. Thr food was great and Becky even came around with extra appetitizers for the bridal party. To top it off, she helped us clean the venue at the end of the night. Becky was a lifesaver and we owe our amazing reception entirely to her.

Now to touch on the rest... Obviously the service was amazing. Party serve was the caterer and the food was very good. A couple of menue items were different than we had planned but it was better than what we had origonally chosen. The cake was from Ludgers and it was so beautiful and tasted fantastic. Our personal package deal that we had with GAST was an incredible value and included everything from silverware and a full dinner buffet, to the cake and linnens. GAST it was cheaper than ALL of the other places that we had looked at previously. I have been to several weddings at GAST and all of them were amazing. I recommend GAST and Becky 100% Thanks you for a perfect reception!!!

Working with the German American Society was super easy and stressfree. They are really laid back and willing to work with you through any issue or concern you may have. I never had to stress about anything with this venue. Becky was great in helping me and giving me advice about how to do things to make it the best possible. Its a bit pricey, but, considering the other options in the Tulsa area, the venue is HUGE, gorgeous, and flexible with pretty much whatever you want to do for your event, so the cost is worth it. Definitely would recommend, and I have absolutely no regrets about renting this venue.

After looking around town for a venue to fit the art deco theme, we chose the German American Society Building for a wedding and reception. We found the inclusive packages extremely reasonable with prices to fit all budgets.
Planning and execution of the event was easy thanks to Becky. She acted as the wedding coordinator in dealing with the vendors involved.
Becky was easy to work with and very competent in handling the catering, linens, dishes and bartender. She had excellent ideas for other vendors such as lighting, and flowers necessary to make this event memorable.
Becky also was on hand to oversee the end result and handle last minute details.
We highly recommend using the GAST for any event.
Thank you Becky.

Becky was helpful with every aspect of the wedding planning. The venue is beautiful by itself and therefore you don't need an elaborate decoration budget. We loved our wedding reception!! Thank you so much GAST, you made our dream come true.

The German Society was great to work with. If you are looking to plan it all and be super involved with all decisions this is the place for you. Or if you want somewhere that provides a little more guidance this is the awesome for you too. It's based on what YOU want.

Beautiful venue, good people to work with. You must use their chairs - but they are comfortable! Could use the venue the day before to setup if no one had booked it - didn't find out until a couple weeks before though. Would be nice if that was automatically included. The center is only open a few hours each week, so sometimes it can be difficult to get in touch with them.

We started off with a rocky start but there was a change in staff and we had such a better experience. Terri answered all our questions and was so quick at responding. She gave us great ideas, helped with our layout, even helped out when we were having some last minute issues. The wedding was beautiful. So much room and the place is beautiful. Of course we picked the hottest day of the year but the venue was perfect. You can use your own caterer, we even were able to decorate the night before. Perfection!

This venue is beautiful, but brides should be warned about some shortcomings that I came across. First of all, they told me the venue could easily fit 250 guests, and I found out later that the limit that you can comfortably seat is about 180. They also said that if there's not an event in there the day before we can have all of that day to set up as well as all of the day of, and I found out a week before my wedding that, while we had a good amount of time to set up the day before, they weren't going to open the venue to us or the vendors on the day of until 2 hours before the reception, which was an hour before our ceremony started. However, there some reasons I would recommend this venue- they let you supply all of your own liquor without a corking fee, which saved us a ton of money, and it is a gorgeous space, just make sure you know what the exact terms of your agreement are.

German American Society of Tulsa is beautiful center and I loved using the space for my reception. One of the reasons we chose the GAST is because of their flexibility with set-up and tear down. However, we had several miscommunications and were not able to set up when we expected. Also, we found out the week before that we had to do more labor at the end of the event than we originally knew. (We had to find someone to help us re-stack the chairs that night and eventually hired the caterer to help.) It was frustrating to work through those miscommunications. All that said, I truly had a perfect wedding day and danced the night away at the German American Society of Tulsa.

The GAST House responded with the following comments:

We are sorry you felt there was miscommunication. The parties involved were given rules for the use of our facility which were acknowledged by you in a meeting we had on July 16, 2014. I spoke then about what was expected in clean up. The wedding planner did not want to stack chairs while dressed up for wedding. I suggested having the caterer do this. She informed me a few days later the caterer would take care of the chairs. The office hours were discussed numerous times with the wedding planner and again at the meeting on the 16th. We appreciate you renting our venue for your wedding reception. And am glad everyone had a wonderful time. Best wishes on your wedding and your new life together.

If you are about to book your wedding at GAST, stop! There are many positive reviews on here that mention a woman named Becky that was helpful and took all the stress out of the reviewer's respective wedding. This person is NO LONGER WITH THE ORGANIZATION. For our wedding, all we dealt with was a cast of volunteers that repeatedly reminded us they were volunteers who, bless their hearts, are all over 70, and move as such. The woman who we were in contact with throughout the planning process was NO WHERE TO BE FOUND on either the rehearsal or wedding day. The list of things that went awry on their end is long and sprawling. To start with, they said we could have a rehearsal the evening prior to the wedding, and then booked a fraternity Christmas party over it shrinking our rehearsal time to about 25 minutes. Next, the original plan that was agreed upon prior to the wedding was that we could get in to decorate and set up the day before, and this was nullified by the fraternity Christmas party, as well. When planning the wedding, the woman at GAST told us we had full access to their catering kitchen, so we told our caterer there would be warming ovens available. On the day of the wedding the 70-year-old volunteer with a terrible disposition told us he would NOT turn them on as it was a violation of their policy. At one point he pointed his finger at me, the groom, and said "Young man don't push me, I'll shut this whole thing down!" In addition to this, their sound system is off limits. As far as seating goes, they boast a 250 person capacity. This would be true if your guests plan on standing shoulder-to-shoulder like they're at a Metallica concert. This venue seats 180 MAX, with barely any room for anything else. The venue is gorgeous and historic, but is far short of anything they promise you in the planning stages. They did eventually relent on the warming ovens, and some other little things, but were defiant and hard to get along with from day one.
