We chose Muriel's to host our wedding because we wanted amazing food and a unique venue. The space is gorgeous and so old school New Orleans and the food is the best you will find. We know that it was a great venue but were totally blown away by the attention and service when we arrived. Erin was so great to work with and helped with so many details such as getting a space to sign the license, ensuring we ate and drank and we evenhad a dedicated service attendant! Absolutely amazing, they really know how to knock it out of thr park and take care of their bride and groom. I had heard so many compliments and comments about the best wedding my guests have ever been to!Sent on 11/11/2014

Muriel's knows how to put on a great reception. If you've ever seen their event spaces on the second floor, you know they are absolutely beautiful and overflowing with character - i.e., not the typical ballroom you could find anywhere. No extra decoration is required, which is really nice. The location couldn't be better, and the enormous balcony overlooking Jackson Square is something you can't get at any other venue. What really cemented the choice for us is that many venues in New Orleans require a high minimum for Saturday night weddings. We were planning a ~75 person wedding, which meant we were priced out of many of the venues which have minimums for Saturday night receptions pegged at 150+ person weddings. At Muriel's you have the option of renting half of the second floor (one of two rooms) and the food and beverage minimum for the Plantation Room (the red room) was just right for our size crowd. I had a lot of anxiety about our decision to hire a 7-piece band for the reception as we knew the room was not that big and we'd need space for a dance floor along with space for all our food stations and the bar. In the end it worked out, but I will say that there were no seats in the room itself - just a few highboy tables. Fortunately the weather was glorious and our guests made full use of the wonderful balcony which wraps around the second floor and has plenty of seating. We also rented the seance lounges which are wildly over the top and fun (and we put a photobooth in there), and the lounges provided additional seating, although the balcony was where most everyone wanted to be. The food was fabulous, the staff was great, and everything went off without a hitch. And Muriel's was easy to work with - during the planning process, the event coordinator, Maria, responded to my lengthy emails filled with questions almost immediately. We were very, very pleased with our choice!Sent on 11/12/2012
