    What an AMAZING experience!

    We knew we wanted a fun bright wedding venue and we fell in love with Marbles in an instant. They were there for us through a postponement due to Covid, which was heartbreaking to do. We finally got to have our big day at Marbles this passed weekend and it was everything we could have wanted and more. Jennifer helped with ever aspect of our big night, made sure our centerpieces were set up, coordinated, kept close contact running up to the event, and just took such great care of us. We got to play with so many fun things and had so much space to play, which gave people a nice break from the dancing and quiet spaces to relax. 10/10 would do it all over again. Worth every penny.

    Marbles is an excellent choice for a downtown Raleigh wedding reception venue. The venue coordinator, Samantha, was so good at her job - she was always prepared for walkthroughs, promptly responded to emails, and made it all very fun! Our wedding reception was held in Curiosity Square - it was simply beautiful! There are lots of options for museum controlled decor: ceiling lights that rotated colors, twinkly lights, tv screens for slideshows, and life size chess & connect four - all very fun! Their caterer list does not limit you to one or two caterers; there are many to choose from for your needs. Overall we are very pleased that we chose Marbles for our wedding reception!

    I can't say enough great things about Marbles as a wedding venue. Amanda was fantastic and the space is beautiful and large (we got married in curiosity square).

    Don't let the kids intimidate you when you check it out in person- it could not have been more beautiful and elegant for the actual wedding
