The Caldwell House Reception Information (wedding held elsewhere)
105 E. Vermilion Street, Abbeville, LA 70510
Thank you for considering The Caldwell House for this most special event. Below is general information regarding our wedding reception package.
The Caldwell Wedding Reception Package provides not only a beautiful, elegant yet intimate venue for your wedding reception, but many extras, as well. Brides will have use of the home and gardens for a one-hour photo shoot with their photographer on a date prior to the wedding. Our Bridal Dressing Room is a large, beautifully furnished room available for the bride, her bridal party and mothers three hours prior to leaving for the wedding. A snack tray and refreshments are served. Also included in our Wedding Reception Package is an overnight stay in the Evangeline Master Honeymoon Suite, complete with champagne, luxury bath products, and an in-room private breakfast the next morning.
Receptions are held indoors and outdoors. The cake, food and beverage service are inside, while music and dancing and a second bar, if needed, is outside, just off the porch, in our West Garden Pavilion area.
The Caldwell can arrange for rental of a dance floor, stage, etc.
Many luxuries are included by The Caldwell which set it apart from other venues in the area. The home is decorated with silk florals, bridal lace tablecloths, candle tea lights; guests are served on beautiful glass dinnerware with silverware and real glasses for drinks. Setup is done by our staff, along with working the reception, and cleanup, as well, so your family and friends just come and enjoy the reception. All of this is included in the package price. Also included in the price is the assistance of our event consultant with all matters dealing with The Caldwell, all through the planning process.
We require a licensed caterer and we have approved three caterers from which you can choose: Don’s Custom Catering, Abbeville, La.; Chef Bobby & Dot Catering, Kaplan, La.; or iMonelli’s Restaurant, Lafayette, La. We may consider an outside caterer for an extra charge.
Beverage service is provided by a licensed beverage service provider, but all orders for drinks are placed with The Caldwell which will be coordinated with the beverage service provider, taking the hassle and difficulty out of that portion of your planning.
Three guest rooms with private baths are available upstairs for family and friends. Please ask for information and pricing.
To schedule a tour of The Caldwell and our East and West Gardens, along with a consultation, please call Mae Mayeux at 337-281-0807.
