After a long year of planning the most important day of our lives, the Mackey House owner did not want to handle any of the wedding details until two weeks before and said ""if I did not like it then I can just take my wedding elsewhere."" What an awful thing to tell a person your doing business with let alone a ""bride."" So we did and had the most incredible wedding ever...thanks to my newly hired wedding planner! We are now even getting featured in the local Savannah Wedding magazine. With the Mackey House it seems so great because they can accommodate a lot of people, where downtown Savannah it's a little harder but I will tell you that it is not worth it. Also, you might like that they have a DJ, caterer, beverage service, an all inclusive deal but it's NOT! You do not get to taste the food or meet with the DJ to discuss music until two weeks before. They just do so many weddings..no personal details are taken into consideration. On top of everything we were not able to get our deposit back but it all worked out in the end because we ended up with the most beautiful wedding that was even less expensive than the Mackey House. Everything was less expensive and we were in downtown Savannah and that's where you want your family and friends to see you get married...not someone's home where their personal belongings and furniture are in the background of every picture you take. I bet it looked great a few years ago but it is definitely run down now and their pictures do not reflect it's actual appearance...please go see for yourself. I will also tell you that my mother flew down from Virginia in June to plan and see the venue and we had a meeting set with the owners for two weeks and he stood us up! Really...all in all they are very difficult to work with and I am not the only one to admit that. If you want the best wedding go to Memories N More for the BEST vendors. Thank you for all that you did for us Tricia, Teresa, Natalie, Heidi, and Cynthia.
