The Magnolia Room is a beautiful New Orleans style banquet facility centrally located in Midtown Memphis on Overton Square. We host weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, showers, birthday parties as well as cater outside events. We have a master carver who can create beautiful fruit and veggie displays that will surely impress your guests. We also have an in-house wedding coordinator that will make things easier on your nerves as well as your pocket books. There is also a beautiful bridal suite upstairs for the bride to prepare and get ready. We are a family owned business who have been in business for the past 14yrs. My husband and I got married and had our reception here at The Magnolia Room almost 17yrs ago (before we had anything to do with the room). Therefore, this is my baby! I want to make every wedding as beautiful and rememorable as humanly possible. Read less

Kari and her staff are above and beyond the nicest and most professional people I have ever encountered. We had our daughter's reception there for around 150 guests, and she knew exactly what would work. She is very laid back and flexible to meet any requests, but she also advises expertly. All of our guests were wowed by the amazing food, which was out of this world presented and tasted fabulous. The atmosphere is friendly and charming, plenty of room to dance, and the best part is that you actually get to see everyone and everything that is going on. The sweet patios remind you of New Orleans, and guests had plenty of parking without any difficulty. My advice is to book events early, because numerous people at our event took note of this venue and will spread the word. :-). As the mother of the bride who has never done this before, I just cannot express how wonderful she and her staff are. As my daughter says " Kari rocks". She took very good care of us. :-)

The Magnolia Room is the perfect venue for a vintage style wedding. The facility is gorgeous.
Kari was extremely helpful after I was in an accident and wasn't able to spend as much as planned. She helped us out and we were extremely satisfied with the outcome of our wedding.
Don't even get me started on the food! I was so disappointed that I had to reduce my menu. People are still complimenting how great it was.

We had our daughters wedding reception there and it was a wonderful experience!! It was perfect for our mid-size reception. The Victorian charm and attentive staff made for a memorable night!! The food was awesome and creatively presented. We had room for a DJ and dance floor which the young people enjoyed and a beautiful bar that all enjoyed. Thank-you to Keri for her suggestions and helping to make it all so special for us!!

All the staff was great and everything we requested was done. It was the first place we actually visited and there happen to be a promo going on so we got the venue at a very good price. Many of our guests commented that it was one of the most special venues that had ever seen. It was so nice to have the ceremony and reception in one location and to have easy access to the beautiful grounds throughout the day. The location was beautiful and the entire staff spent every second we were there making the event a one in a million day. Lastly the food, I am still getting compliments on the food three months after our wedding. Everything was perfect on my wedding day and his staff is unbelievable. I could not have asked for more and the experience there made my day extremely memorable.

Kari was an absolute pleasure to work with. She gives you total freedom to do whatever you want, and the input she gives is extremely helpful. She goes above and beyond the call of duty as a wedding coordinator.

The Magnolia Room is a beautiful historic Midtown Memphis spot that is perfect for smaller weddings. While you are responsible for decorating, the room itself has enough character that any effort you choose to make, big or small, will just enhance its beauty.

Kari is a very straight-forward coordinator who will work with you in order to create the best event for your needs. The food she and her staff prepares is excellent. Our appetizer choice was perfect for our size wedding (100) and the unlimited wine and beer proved to be the best solution to please our guests.

It's only been a few days, but the feedback I've gotten from my guests has been overwhelmingly positive. Everyone thought the location was unique and fun. The patios helped with overflow and smokers. So far, everyone has said it was one of the best weddings they have ever attended.

Our wedding and reception was held at the beautiful Magnolia Room in Overton Square. The elegant building reminded me of the french quarter in New Orleans. The service was wonderful and I can't say enough about the wedding coordinator
Kari Betlesky. Kari helped me through the wedding, from my doubts to the mistakes I almost made and she fixed.
The front and back patios sparkling with twinkling lights and net set off the beautiful Magolia tree.
