We LOVED this venue! However it was slightly out of our budget! If we had a slightly larger budget we most definitely would have gone with Melrose! It’s about $5000 to rent the venue with alcohol fees at $30/pp and buffet dinner starting at $58/pp. If you have the money I would definitely consider this venue for any couple in the Raleigh/Durham area!Sent on 08/01/2019

My wedding was at Melrose Knitting Mill and planned by Sarah Skrobialowski. Sarah was incredible to work with and paid attention to every small detail. She worked very hard, was extremely organized, and the wedding went perfectly. She took the time to call every vendor and ensure they were prepared. On the wedding day, she had everything prepared exactly as planned. It was clear she took a lot of pride in her work and left no stone unturned. The venue was beautiful and we got many compliments from our guests. It was a great all around experience. I would highly recommend Sarah and Melrose.Sent on 10/23/2019

I am a little late in posting this review as I have been enjoying the memories of my son's beautiful wedding at Melrose Knitting Mill on October 13th. What a beautiful event! The venue is gorgeous and the food was delicious. One wedding guest told me it was the best wedding he had ever attended! I would not have changed a thing! It was everything I had envisioned it would be thanks to the guidance of our Southern Oak Events wedding planner, Sarah Skrobialowski and her efficient and friendly staff. Sarah had great advise and recommendations that helped with many decisions. She prepared an in depth timeline that kept everything on track and allowed me to enjoy the evening without any worries. The vendors all knew when to arrive and what to do allowing everything to run smoothly. I thought I would be packing up personal items at the end of the evening but before I had a chance Sarah handed me my car keys...everything was in my car! She was a joy to work with and I cannot thank her enough. If you have a wedding in your future i highly recommend Melrose and Sarah!!Sent on 11/03/2019
