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

Better than we'd imagined possible
Sarah Skrobialowski is freaking amazing. She just had a baby and yet she was there 2 weeks later, helping me plan the best wedding ever imaginable. She is the master cat herder who wrangled strong personalities, the silent ninja who put out and put away all the decorations, the precise planner who wrote a 7 page timeline that kept 120 people moving at the right pace, all the meanwhile staying cool and collected. The space was also a DREAM. Even people who are notorious for being hard to please had their jaws drop when they walked in. Please please do yourself a favor and go with Melrose, it is the most painless and beautiful venue we could have hoped forSent on 09/16/2019

Best Downtown Raleigh Venue
Melrose Knitting Mill was absolutely the most perfect Wedding Venue!!! I looked into every downtown Raleigh venue and Melrose was just perfect. It has an enormous amount of character and charm, we got a countless number of compliments from guests on how amazing the venue was!!! It is also the perfect venue for a flip, the ceremony upstairs was beautiful and then guests were taken downstairs to the gorgeous hanging gardens and bar for cocktail hour. We loved the surprise element that after cocktail hour guests were taken back upstairs and the room was completely transformed for the reception!!!Sent on 06/11/2019
Jessica and her team at Southern Oak Events (exclusive planners for the venue) are also absolutely amazing. They know that venue inside and out and run your wedding like a well-oiled machine. They answered every question, took care of everything, and made it the most perfect, worry-free day!!!
We also hired Jessica and her husband for the photobooth and it was SO perfect and fun!!! I would absolutely recommend Melrose Knitting Mill!!
