  • We had our wedding at the Allan House in February and it was wonderful! We wanted to find a place in the heart of Austin so our guests could enjoy the city, and the Allan House was perfect for that. Also, the house is so unique that it doesn't require a ton of extra decor. The winter tent is great, and included in the price of the venue during the winter months. It was nice to not be concerned about weather in such an unpredictable month. Juliana is very responsive via email, and you can pretty much go by any time during the day to check the place out. We didn't have any trouble during the day of the wedding with access to the house or any problems with the tent heating process. I suppose a downside for some would be that the venue is pretty small, which we actually preferred, but I saw somewhere advertised that they could have 200+ guests in the tent seated with a large dance floor.. I imagine that would be pretty snug. It was perfect for our 110 guests with a buffet and dance fl... Read more

  • I LOVED my experience with the Allan House. It was the most gorgeous setting for our 150-guest wedding, but probably could not seat that many more people comfortably. All of our guests are still raving about the gorgeous venue. The staff was all very friendly and easy to work with as well. I would highly recommend it!

  • We had our wedding at the Allan House this past weekend, and it was the perfect winter wedding venue. The tent is so beautiful that it doesn't require much decorating--a huge plus when planning from out of town. The staff was great to work with, and all of the recommended vendors were wonderful. Highly recommend.

  • My husband and I loved everything about the Allan House. Juliana was great to work with, and any question I emailed her with was responded to by the next day at the latest. Our guests absolutely loved the venue, and even though I haven't gotten our professional pictures back yet, I know that venue made a beautiful backdrop based on what we've seen from our friends. The price was a little high for our budget if we wanted a Saturday wedding, so we decided to go with a Friday and it was definitely worth it. The only downsides to the venue I can think of are parking, and the fact that you can't get ready there if you're also wanting to do a first look without adding some time to your contract. They do offer parking lots to rent, and my husband and I just paid for the additional 30 minutes so we could get in the house early, so clearly they weren't big enough issues to send us elsewhere!

  • The Allan House is a beautiful venue, however, we did not have a very good experience with them. First of all, the venue says they have capacity for 225, but then only provide chairs and tables for 150. So we had to go out of our way to find matching tables and chairs to rent just to fill their capacity. We also had to rent extra hours from them. I know a lot of venues do this, but I found it frustrating. if they only have one event each day, why not just let us use it the whole day? So, we purchased extra hours so we could arrive at 2pm, have our wedding start at 4pm, and be done by 10pm. The day of the wedding, we all showed up at 2pm- the wedding party, family, photographers, baker, florist, coordinators.. and no one was there. The doors were locked. We looked at our contract and confirmed that our entry time was 2pm. We had no phone number other than the office number for the venue management, and there was no one in the office. We were finally able to contact the venue ma... Read more

  • We cannot Thank the Allan House enough for saving us! We planned our wedding in about 3 months because of a horrible misunderstanding with our previous venue, leaving us in a lurch. I was panicked and unsure of how to begin a new search for a wedding site and the Allan House made it so very easy! They invited us to an open house, which happened to be that evening, where we could see what the venue might look like, it was magical! The staff is more than just friendly, they make you feel like they are actually your friends and look out for your every need! They listen to your ideas and helped to make them happen! They offer a gorgeous clear heated tent during some of the winter months (our wedding was Dec. 18) so that you are still able to dance in the moonlights, and tables and chairs are included (which in this economy was a huge bonus)! The venue is absolutely beautiful with its classic elegance, yet they embrace the natural beauty of the property! My husband was born and raised i... Read more

  • We found this venue after going thru many outside facilities. It was perfect for the size of wedding that we had and it went perfectly with the bride and groom's personalities. The weather cooperated that evening so everyone had a great time. The staff from the beginning was great with not only educating us about the facilities, the appearance, the wedding and reception set up, and the overall operation, but also helped with the additional vendors since this was a destination wedding and the guests raved about the ones we chose. The day of the wedding went relatively smooth. My suggestion to anyone is the one hour setup time before the wedding can be tight if any vendor runs late so I would suggest to arrange an addition hour just in case. The lite arrangement and décor was perfect and we can't wait to see the pictures. The value for the price is excellent and I would surely recommend this venue to anyone when looking for an out door venue in Austin.

  • We got married at the Allan House two weeks ago and it was a smashing success! Every guest at our wedding flew across the country to get here, so there was no way I was getting married anywhere but downtown - did not want people to have to 'commute' to our wedding. Our communication with the Allan House was always very prompt, they always answered questions immediately, and were both upfront about their policies and gracious. I don't recall ever encountering a policy that I thought was problematic. They're very strict on the time of your rental, but I'm not sure that would be different anywhere else (esp downtown). Otherwise, you can use any vendors you want - which was extremely important to us. Our wedding was on the patio with about 135 guests. I believe they can hold near 200, but I probably wouldn't host a party too much bigger than 135 - at least for my taste. I didn't want to use their typical hanging lanterns for our party and they were totally cool with us switching it... Read more

  • I had my ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Allan House in April and had such a pleasant experience throughout the whole process! The girls at The Allan House - Juliana and Alex - were both extremely helpful and so sweet to work with. I needed to change my original date and Juliana worked with me to reschedule and was so helpful throughout everything. She was such a joy to work with! I absolutely LOVED the venue. It was perfect for the wedding that I had envisioned -- elegant garden -- and many of my family and friends raved about how much they loved the venue. I wanted something different than just a hotel ballroom -- and I wanted a venue that was already pretty and didn't need a lot of additional decor. The Allan House was perfect! The lighting and chandeliers in the trees and the garden and home are gorgeous without adding anything! I loved having the ceremony and reception in the garden and using the house for cocktail/cutting cake... I almost felt like I was at my own ... Read more

  • From the very first time we walked past the Allan House, even before my husband & I were engaged, we both knew that was the venue for our wedding. It's in the heart of downtown, but still has a very intimate and classy feel. The courtyard is just stunning and even though it was cold & rainy on our wedding weekend, it turned out beautifully and I can't imagine getting married anywhere else! Juliana is super great to work with: very responsive and informative. And we most of our vendors were on their preferred vendor list - which made the planning much easier!

  • I loved this little gem in Austin for my October wedding of about 70 people. All the guests are still raving about the location and the outdoor reception under the stars and twinkle lights. The layout is perfect for a wedding allowing special areas for the ceremony, reception, cake and cocktail hour. The staff at the Allan House is more than professional; they are quick to respond to emails or phone calls and can help you with anything. Juliana was a lifesaver for my wedding. She spent tones of time with me on the phone and via email the week of the wedding and after the wedding as the weather started misbehave for my wedding. Pros: 1) Downtown Austin – everyone can take taxis or walk back to the hotels/6th street. 2) Perfect layout. Guests flow was perfect during cocktail hour and the reception. 3) Little decorations needed. The place is the true focus. 4) Amazing photo opportunities 5) Flexibility in choosing wedding vendors including stocking the bar. 6) Amaz... Read more
