The Villa Marre rose to fame as the offices of the Sugarbaker Design Firm from the long running hit television show “Designing Women”. The show was fictionally based in Atlanta, Georgia and filmed in California, but the house can be seen in the opening credits, as well as, some cameos during various episodes. Having gone through years of neglect, The Villa Marre has made a comeback befitting her original beauty.

The Villa Marre is now open to the public allowing everyone to experience the beauty and grandeur of years past. We offer the grand lady to you and your guests to enjoy this spectacular home as something more than what it was intended. The home is beautifully appointed with a feel and luxury of years past but upgraded with modern amenities. Not only a perfect setting for a beautiful wedding and reception, but also spacious enough for meetings giving you a truly unique and enriching experience. Read less

One of my friends suggested I check out the Villa Marre as an option for my wedding reception. The Villa Marre was the first and last place I looked--- right when I saw it I knew it would be perfect! The house is beautiful and is the perfect size to keep the flow of your event smooth. It’s kept up beautifully and has a classical elegance you won’t find anywhere else in Little Rock. Renee Valdov, Director at the Villa Marre was such a pleasure to work with! She is super bubbly and you can truly tell she loves her job! She was flexible about meeting with me several times before my event. She is very organized and was on top of communication with my caterer, music provider, rental company and florist. She went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect for me. She checked in several times as my date came closer to make sure details were specified as to what I wanted. Devon, Renee’s assistant is such a lovely person and you can tell she’s equally as enthusiastic about what she does! The venue itself is amazing and the people that work there make it even more phenomenal!

While the house and setting was absolutely beautiful, we did have some issues. First of all, a shower was booked for the same day as our wedding, which caused our florist to have to come at a later time. We were told at the first meeting with Villa staff, that on wedding days, the house was never booked with any other events. Apparently not true. The second issue we had was that while my family was pinning on corsages, a tour of the house was being given by Villa staff for another event. Nothing like having a special moment going on and a group of strangers parading through the middle of it. Not professional at all. If you're going to put out this kind of money on your special day, understand up front that you possibly won't be the only group enjoying the house.

We had our wedding reception at the Villa Marre. We loved it, and the coordinator was so very helpful. All of our guests kept commenting on "how perfect" the house was for the reception, and I would have to agree!

The Villa Marre is an awesome venue for a wedding. This was the first wedding I had to plan . AJ is extremely professional and helpful in any situation. We had some tight scheduling issues and last minute request that were not a problem. Stress was not an issue with this wedding because they take care of it all and their recommendations for caterers, photographers are amazing as well. It was a pleasure working with him and we will be re-visiting for our next daughters wedding..

I cannot praise A.J. and the staff at the Villa Mare enough! Because of the weather (rain and cold) we were not sure until 2 hours before the ceremony if the wedding was going to be inside or outside. A.J. kept monitoring the weather via the internet and updated me every 20 minutes. We had the ceremony outside and it was beautiful! AJ worked behind the scenes moving chairs, etc and attending to issues even before I knew about the issues. The Villa Marre is a dream place to have a wedding and AJ's intuitive nature made everything perfect!

I absolutely LOVED having my bridal photography as well as my wedding day photography at the Villa Marre. It was the perfect location with so many options for unique photos. They were very welcoming and helped with all of my questions. Very responsive and same day emails back. I loved working with the Villa Marre and recommend it to all my friends. I hope one day my husband and I can hold a ceremony there to renew our vows!
