House of Broel was great to work with. After having dealt with other bridal attire vendors in the area, House of Broel was great because they set appointments and during your appointment you got their undivided attention. They was a mistake with my bridesmaid dress orders and the wrong dress style was ordered. HofB offerred to either reorder our correct dresses or offerred us the mistake dresses at half price which were equally beautiful.
I had doubts about a "package" wedding but the experience was wonderful! Ms. Broel and her staff made this event carefree and beautiful. Anyone looking for a great wedding this is the place. The food was tops and everything went like clock work. There were no worries and the day was magic! Ms. Broel was great and very friendly to all of our guest.
My daughter's wedding took place last night at the House of Broel and I couldn't wait to leave this recommendation. Bonnie Broel and her staff personally catered to our every need. They were on hand from the moment the Bridal party arrived until they helped us gather our things at the end of the reception. The food service was generous and friendly. All of our guests commented on the beautiful setting and the personal treatment we received from Bonnie and her staff. There was nothing for us to worry about except enjoying the company of our guests and leaving all details to the House of Broel. We highly recommend this venue for anyone wanting a wedding with every detail taken care of for you. It was truly a night to remember. As a side note...Bonnie Broel personally took us on a tour of the upstairs doll museum and gave us a history lesson on this beautiful mansion. It was the icing on the cake and a lovely gesture from her. Thank you, Bonnie. We hope to return for future weddings!
When my daughter came to me with the news that she and her fiancé had decided to move their wedding date up so that they could be married before he deployed to Afghanistan, she said very sadly that she recognized that, since that was only six weeks away, she would not be able to have a ceremony. Having just attended a lovely wedding at the House of Broel, I contacted Ms. Broel immediately and explained my circumstance. In deference to my future son-in-laws deployment, she immediately insisted that she would do whatever she could to accommodate our situation. I was extremely gratified to see both she and her staff spring into action to assist. Within six weeks, we were able to have a wedding that appeared to have been planned for months. This would not have been possible without Ms. Broel and her staff. My husband and I will be forever grateful for the lovely day that the House of Broel played such a large part in.
Wow... I can not begin to express in words the experience we had when we had a wedding recently at House of Broel. Ms Bonnie and her staff are each and everyone fabulous. My son and daughter in law came to me and said they wanted to get married immediately. With a breif visit and a few emails, within a few weeks they were able to have a wedding they never dreamed of having.And because of the reasonable price and all inclusive packages, i was able to afford to give them a beautiful weddiing to start out their new lives together. Ms Bonnie managed what most planners take months if not years to do in a few short weeks. In additon to making sure everything was just as the bride and grrom wanted, she also kept me from completely stressing out and falling apart. From the traffic delays making us late arriving (with the bride of course) , the last minute un-conventional bridal party adjustments, even when right before the ceremony I realized I had forgotten to let them know that the bride and groom had decided to have the ceremony inside rather than in the courtyard (and they had already set up the courtyard)... every thing from the tiniest to the more complicated issues, Ms Bonnie and her staff handled it quickly and extremely calm. Including keeping me together. She had 4 ceremonies scheduled for that day and still managed to make us feel like we were the center of her attention from the time we arrived to the time we left. The mansion and the courtyard are breathtaking. But honestly, with the beautiful words and her angelic & calming voice that Ms Bonnie has, she could have performed the ceremony anywhere and it would have been great. I spent the entire ceremony wiping tears (as well as a number of the other guest as well), it was so touching and I can not describe the feelings that overcome me. Every thing from the time we walked thru the beautiful front of the house was perfectly performed. My son and daughter in law are so thankful for the wonderful memories that they will have to cherish of their wedding day. And should they forget then there are plenty of beautiful pictures both inside the mansion and outside in the courtyard for them to remind themselves with. Ms Bonnie and her staff treated the bride, groom and each and every guest with every bit of the southern grace, charm, pride, and elegance that one would expect from a true Southern Belle and the hospitality of her home! Anyone wanting a beautiful and calm wedding needs to speak with Ms Bonnie. And pick up or order a copy of her book because it is just as fabulous as she is! Thank yall so much for helping me give my son and his new bride a beautiful storybook wedding!
Best Place to get married in New Orleans.
My wedding this past weekend at the House of Broel was OUTSTANDING! We could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Let me tell you; if you are looking for exceptional service, attention to detail, and a beautuful setting to have your fairy tale wedding in this is it.
I am not a first time bride, so I did not have any unrealistic expectations. I simply wanted a place for a few family and friends to gather and relax after our vows. Bonnie and her staff handled everything. The atmosphere was romantic and warm. It all took place in her Victorian mansion in the garden district with the ceremony in the garden courtyard. The food was amazing-very southern. From hand passed crab cakes, catfish,and cheese tarts, to main a course like shrimp ettouffe, it was pentiful and delish. The alcohol was all included and they made sure i always had a drink or food in my hand. Needless to say my expectations were exceeded a thousand times over. I am one happy bride. Best wishes!
