  • This venue only does weddings to survive. They are unprepared, and the staff and the manager care more about their daily patrons ($10 each), than the wedding party and guests (venue rental greater than $13,000). The venue is run down with little evidence of any repair. There are many rules and restrictions. Access to the house and its history are limited. The "non-refundable" deposit is a joke. After the wedding, this place charges excessively for normal wedding clean up, and basically does not return your deposit. I would not recommend this location for a wedding, avoid the hassle. Go somewhere they are more professional and actually want to do weddings.

    We were sorry to read this review. Bonnet House prides itself on being one of the most beautiful and well-organized wedding venues in Fort Lauderdale. Since Bonnet House operates as a venue-only, the caterer is responsible for clean-up after the event. This client hired a caterer that was grossly unprepared to service a wedding at a museum and lacked the staff to clean up afterwards. Bonnet House incurred substantial fees and spent many hours cleaning up debris that the caterer left behind. As the caterer refused to cover the museum's clean up expense, Bonnet House had no alternative but to withhold a portion of the client's security deposit in this case.

  • The staff here are excellent and they accommodated my brunch wedding even though they typically only do evenings. Each time I went they took a minimum of 90 minutes to meet with me and go over everything, addressing every question and concern I had. This spot is a gem. Every guest was so impressed. It is absolutely gorgeous and the staff went way above and beyond exceeding expectations. I can't thank them enough. It's expensive, but it was worth it for us.

  • Bonnet House is the most gorgeous venue in all of Fort Lauderdale. Truly spectacular. We had our wedding there three weekends ago and everything was perfect, including the photos! David, Bonnet's events manager, is incredible and very easy to work with. We planned a destination wedding and it was so nice to have David in our corner helping with vendor recommendations and timelines.

  • My husband and I both grew up in Massachusetts and met in Florida. We always figured we would get married in New England so when we got engaged we decided to do a wedding venue tour at home in Florida beforehand so we knew what to expect. The Bonnet House ended up being the only venue we toured because we both fell in love with it and booked the next day. Nothing can compare to the natural beauty and history there. Our wedding pictures are amazing and all our our guests, mostly from up north, were blown away by the beauty of the Bonnet House. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. David, Debbie, and all of the volunteers were so easy to work with. They answered all of our questions and made sure that we had everything we needed. Our wedding was perfect and now the Bonnet House will always hold a special place in our hearts.

  • I cannot overstate how incredible this place is. Our wedding day was absolutely stunning and so much of that is attributable to the bonnet house and their amazing staff. All of our guests were blown away by the beauty and uniqueness of this venue, and our pictures came out so unique and beautiful. This was truly a unique, out of the ordinary venue with amazing service and just stunning backdrops.

  • Because of Irma, we had do relocate our wedding from the Keys in only 5 weeks. When we visited Bonnet House, we fell in love immediately!! Not only are the 35 acres of museum and gardens breathtaking and whimsical but there is so much history! David the event coordinator was unbelievably accommodating and such a pleasure to work with. I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else, it was an incredible experience and the best day of my life!

  • My husband and I had one of our first dates at the Bonnet House. As soon as we got engaged we knew that's where we wanted our wedding. And from the very beginning, Nicholle was the most helpful and accommodating person to work with. She helped us with every single detail, making sure our day would be everything we wanted it to be. And the staff is out of this world! It really felt like a dream. Like a party that would have been throw at that house back when the original owners lived there. Everything was absolutely perfect and all of our guests are still talking about it. Plus, we were so happy to get to share this space with all of our friends and family. We've been in love with the Bonnet House, but we know so many people who live here and have never even been! It's one of the most magical places in Florida. Having a wedding here is unlike any wedding you've ever been to.

  • Our wedding ceremony and reception was at Bonnet House a few weeks ago, and it was hands down our dream wedding venue. We worked with Nicholle to plan the wedding along with our coordinator and she was so easy to work with. Most things went smoothly (things that did not run smooth were not the fault of the Bonnet House) from the ceremony through cocktail hour and reception. All of my guests thought the property was absolutely gorgeous and I think we created new fans from some of our first-timers of the property. Perfect venue in South Florida with some old Fort Lauderdale charm close to the beach, Las Olas, Galleria Mall, and other great places around the area. If you are considering having your wedding at Bonnet House, look no further!

  • We knew the moment we first set foot at the Bonnet House that it was the perfect place to have our wedding. The history and art that support this venue is amazing and the natural beauty that surrounds it is breathtaking. We felt a sense of peace and serenity that we wanted all of our guests to experience as well. When we were able to finally meet with the event coordinator, Nicholle Maudlin, it solidified that we made the right choice. Nicholle was always a joy to talk to and eager to work with us making sure that all our questions were answered and needs met from the beginning to the end of the entire planning process. When our wedding day finally arrived, we were able to sit back and just enjoy every moment assured that Nicholle and her phenomenal staff had everything under control. Even when a couple of minor situations presented themselves, Nicholle informed us what was happening and how they planned to resolve it. I appreciated her calm and positive approach and the fact that she ... Read more

  • I dreamed of a garden, vintage wedding and the Bonnet House was the perfect place!! It was more than I ever dreamed, all of my guests are still talking about the beauty and uniqueness of this Museum & Garden ! The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The event coordinator was extremely professional and reliable throughout the planning process, and of course, on the big day. Oh, and the Bridal Suite! Such a beautiful corner to spend the last hours of single life with your bridal party!! Those couple of hours before walking down the isle are such a rush of emotions and my Bridal Assistant was really sweet and helpful delivering last minute details and messages. The Bonnet House is such a romantic, breathtaking venue, all of my pictures came out perfect! A lot of my guests took pictures that made it all the way to their social media profiles as background photographs! Beautiful, romantic, just perfect !

  • The Bonnet House is a truly unique, old Florida-style venue for a fun wedding! The staff is SO knowledgeable and passionate about the museum and ensuring that everyone has a memorable experience. I've lived in Fort Lauderdale all my life and never knew this amazing place was right beside the beach! It's got everything---nature, sophistication, fun and a staff that is dedicated to making your event unforgettable!

  • We had our wedding at the Bonnet House at the beginning of March, and I cannot say enough good things about it. This was the 3rd venue my husband and I had looked at, and when we walked into the courtyard I fell in love with it. We ended up reserving our date that day. Nicholle is the event coordinator at the Bonnet House and she was super fast in answering any and all questions we had during the planning process. She never left me hanging or failed to respond to my emails in a timely manner, which was so important, especially as we got closer to the date. All of our guests loved the venue. It was like three separate venues on one property. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place in three distinct locations and the guests loved the "quirkiness" and truly Florida-feel of the Bonnet House. The venue provided golf carts to shuttle guests from each location and to/from the parking lot so that guests did not have to walk if they didn't want to. On the day of t... Read more

  • My daughter's wedding Ceremony was held on the beach behind Bonnet House and the reception in the gardens. It was a beautiful background for the event but be warned that the heat, no matter the time of year, can be an issue - there is no airconditioning whatsoever and the sense foliage prevents any breeze coming in from the ocean.

  • The Bonnet House was a dream come true for my wedding in June in Fort Lauderdale. It is such a unique and gorgeous venue. All of the volunteers present at my wedding were amazing - so helpful and nice. Nicholle is unbelievable to work with - so responsive, nice, and flexible. She held the tent for me until the week of my wedding when we decided to keep it for the event (and good thing we did because we got one of those 15 minute down pours). All of my guests were amazed by the venue. I cannot recommend it highly enough. One of the most unique places to get married (or have any unique event) in Fort Lauderdale.
