Olivia B. · Getting married on 10/08/2021
Coming from a COVID-19 bride, I can personally attest to the fact that this venue will prioritize your big day....no matter what.
Even during such an unprecedented time as the COVID-19 outbreak, Variety Works and Chastity have gone above and beyond to help make my wedding the best it can be. For a bride, a wedding may be "your special day". But for a vendor, weddings are their entire life/livelihood. And even despite this, they have consistently made it a priority to ensure I am happy while simultaneously taking the steps necessary to be responsible. They were more accommodating than they were contractually obligated to be because they *legitimately* care about the brides they work with. You can tell its not just a business, but its a passion that they enjoy doing. Its a beautiful venue, at an outstanding price, and you could not ask for a better person than Chastity to help you through the process.Sent on 06/12/2020

When my husband and I walked into the venue when we first went to tour, we already knew it was where we would say "I do." The biggest perk of choosing this venue? Having Chasity as a day of coordinator! She really helped us throughout the whole process and helped make sure that our special day went the way we planned! I would highly recommend this venue for your big day!Sent on 01/17/2020

We had the best wedding at this venue in the charming town of Madison! It has so much character on its own, so we chose not to use a lot of decorations! We had an August wedding so we had an indoor ceremony, but we took so many beautiful pictures outside of the venue as well. The wedding coordinator, Chasity, pays attention to every detail and makes everything run smoothly leading up to the wedding and especially on the day of the wedding! She is seriously the sweetest person! She was there from the moment we arrived at the bridal suite that morning until the send off, including putting on my reception shoes for me while I was eating dinner before the reception starts :) Her husband Blake and the rest of her "day of" crew are pretty amazing as well! I highly recommend renting the James Madison Inn right next door!! It was definitely the BEST DAY EVER!Sent on 10/28/2019

We had the best day at The Variety Works!! The venue is so open and clean and the coordinator, Chasity, was such a pleasure to work with! She was so sweet and helpful through the whole process and made everything go smoothly!!! We love this venue and Chasity and will recommend to any friends getting married!Sent on 06/24/2019
Variety Works's reply:Thank you so much, Lydia! You were a beautiful couple and we wish you all the best! It was such a fun day and we loved working with you. Xoxo Chasity

This venue was an absolute dream come true for our May wedding. We wanted an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception. The Variety Works has a gorgeous, rustic interior and the Lawn outside is very nice, too. The venue really doesn't need much decoration because it is really spectacular on its own!! Sadly, it rained on our wedding day, but the coordinator at the venue, Chasity, did an amazing job in switching to an indoor wedding at the last minute and it went off without a hitch. Chasity did an incredible job with our timeline and made our wedding day go very smooth. Great pricing, service and we were not stuck using their vendors. It is a beautiful venue, has a rustic southern feel and beautiful surroundings.Sent on 07/14/2019

Outstanding venue and friendly atmosphere!
I am the father of the bride and the officiant. We could not have been more pleased with this venue. Madison is a beautiful town and Variety Works is accessible and easy for your guests top find. Chasity, Blake, and Crystal are very professional and attentive to the needs of the couple and the wedding party. Their experience and attention to detail alleviates wedding day stress. The neighboring James Madison Inn was comfortable and convenient, another big plus for this fine venue.Sent on 02/28/2019
Variety Works's reply:Thank you so much Mr. Lowery! We all enjoyed working with you and your sweet family to make sure Elisa's day was perfect!

Best Venue EVER.
I don't think I could've had a better experience with this venue and these people! If you're looking for someone easy to work with, professional, timely and organized then the Variety Works is the place for you. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but I think the secret gem is Chasity (she works as your coordinator). From the moment we toured the venue, to the very end of our wedding day she was always there to help. She has a lot of experience and can usually answer your questions before you even ask them! She was very prompt with answering my emails and texts when I did have questions and she had tons of ideas with how to help the day run even smoother! The décor and lighting in the venue is absolutely stunning, so stunning that I barely even needed any extra decorations. The staff is also very flexible about allowing you to bring in your own vendors, however if you need ideas they have a list of people they've also used in the past. Chaisty and her husband are with you every step of the way on the actual day of, and they are on top of everything! I felt very calm and relaxed knowing that I had them to rely on (which isn't easy for me because I'm definitely a perfections). I honestly don't have anything but good things to say about this venue or these people. This venue is beautiful, reasonably priced and I promise you will not be disappointed!Sent on 03/02/2019

Wonderful, beautiful, and affordable!
Madison is such a sweet town to be wed in! The venue is gorgeous for an inside/outside option, and it can hold a LOT of people - which was important to us! The coordinator for the venue is AMAZING and we would not have had such a smooth wedding day without her! Thank you SO much!Sent on 02/12/2019
Variety Works's reply:Thank you so much Ashley! We loved being a part of your special day. Your wedding was beautiful and we are so thankful you chose Variety Works.
Mandi N. · Married on 10/13/2018
We were so ecstatic to finally find an affordable venue that was not only gorgeous, but spacious. We were allowed to find our own vendors and bring our own alcohol, which is hard to find. Madison is just the cutest little town, and renting out the James Madison Inn was also a plus. The venue and the Inn are right next door, so it made our guests very happy! We are so overjoyed with our wedding night and couldn't have asked for a better team! Highly recommend.Sent on 10/16/2018

I could not be more impressed or happy with Chasity and the Variety Works crew. The venue is perfect without much decoration, casual but classy with plenty of space for everyone to have fun! I will be recommending this space to anyone with a wedding or special event.Sent on 10/08/2018

Variety Works was amazing! Chasity was great to work with. Very professional and prompt to reply. She knows what she's doing! The venue was beautiful! I was blown away by how gorgeous it looked on the big day! We didn't need to bring in many decorations because it's already so beautiful on its own. It was great for our 160 guest wedding. It stayed nice and cool indeed even though our wedding was in June. The bridal suite was great for getting ready in. We booked the James Madison Inn for guests and Town 220 for the rehearsal dinner so everything was right there. I'm so glad we got married at Variety works.Sent on 07/30/2018

Chasity Burroughs is the consummate event specialist. She is intent on being sure EVERYTHING is done in the proper, timely, professional manner. She also goes above and beyond in assisting the client with any detail and handling those "difficult" areas, such as logistics, decorating, food placement, etc. Mrs. Burroughs experience is beyond helpful when it comes to making tough decisions with the vendors and she is both compassionate and yet definite on how it works best. You are fortunate to have such a talented young woman running this venue. She works diligently to make sure all aspects of the event is working as the customer desires. Brides are particularly difficult to work with when the event is taking place, they are nervous and are wanting everything to be all and above what they expect. Chasity has the ability to console and assure these brides which calms them and gives them the security of having the "perfect" wedding. She manages her staff with professionalism and you can tell they have an excellent working relationship, Mrs. Burroughs suggestions on where placement of service should be was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Variety Works for any occasion.Sent on 06/15/2018

You cannot go wrong choosing the Variety Works as your venue. The space is beautiful, lots of gorgeous wood and pretty lightening which lends itself well to any decor style. The double tiers were great because guests were able to go upstairs and look over the ledge for first dance/cake cutting: everyone got to see! Also there is a bar on the top and bottom levels which helped with traffic and guests remarked how much they enjoyed the set up.Sent on 06/21/2018
We just got our pictures back today and I couldnt be happier we chose the Variety Works. If you do choose VW, the James Madison Inn is right next door & is gorgeous! Our wedding party and family stayed there and it made for a really fun weekend.
Also: Hire Chasity, their coordinator!!!! She is so wonderful to work with: warm, flexible & on top of the details. My planning was stress free, the day went off without a hitch and she made all of our guests feel so welcome. Worth every penny!

Christine · Married on 11/25/2017
Variety Works was the perfect setting for our 200+ guest wedding. Madison is home to me so I love it, but all the out of town guests were just smitten with the town's charm. Many are now UGA fans (especially after the Rose Bowl)! Chasity and her crew were delightful to work with, and everything was set up perfectly and executed beautifully. They worked seamlessly with the caterers, flower people, band, and wedding coordinator. It was awesome!Sent on 01/03/2018

Grace · Married on 10/28/2017
It honestly ended up being even more amazing than i thought it would be. We planned to have it outside however due to the rain we had to move it inside and everyone there made it such an easy and smooth transition and it was perfect. Chasity Burroughs (the wedding coordinator i chose to use) made sure i didn’t have to worry about a single thing and made our big day fun so smoothly. This is the perfect place to get married at.Sent on 12/30/2017

What a dream come true. Variety Works gives you everything: outdoor ceremony space by a lake, factory-chic indoors, and a beautiful small town for pictures. They charge a very fair price, and Chastity (the day-of coordinator) went above and beyond to make Eric and my vision a reality.Sent on 12/29/2017
Variety Works is flexible (they let us bring a petting zoo and ice cream truck to the wedding), conveniently located between Atlanta and Athens, and SO PRETTY. Wish we could get married there again!
Cara · Married on 09/30/2017
This venue was absolutely amazing! My wedding was at the end of September, and we couldn't have asked for a better day, especially since we chose to have an outdoor ceremony. One thing I loved about this venue was that its inclement weather plan was equally as beautiful, so either way, rain or shine, our ceremony would be great! We used Chasity as our planner/coordinator and she was so wonderful and easy to work with. I did not have to think about a single thing the day of the wedding and everything, as far as I knew, went off without a single hitch... Just how it should be for a bride on her wedding day. Another great feature of this venue is that it's centrally located in downtown Madison and the venue itself is adjacent to The James Madison Inn, making it incredibly convenient. We did not have to drive anywhere the whole weekend, which was awesome! There are also so many gorgeous and unique places to take photos around the venue, Inn, and the downtown area that your photos are sure to be nothing less than stunning, just like ours! I highly recommend scheduling a time to meet with Chasity and tour the venue and Inn and see for yourself what they have to offer.Sent on 01/05/2018

Chasity and her husband are a great wedding day duo! They made sure that everything on our wedding day went smoothly and that we had anything and everything we needed!

Chasity went above and beyond on my wedding day! The entire event went on with little disruption or chaos! The venue was absolutely perfect! Such a beautiful backdrop for our special day! Madison is adorable and everyone is still talking about how great the wedding was despite the long drive to attend! Thank you, Chasity!Sent on 04/25/2018
