Women's Guild of the New Orleans Opera Association House Review

This fundamentally Greek Revival house, built in 1865, has a distinctive Italianate octagonal turret, added in the late 19th century. The last private owner, Nettie Seebold, willed the estate to the guild in 1955. Furnished with 18th- and 19th-century European and American pieces, the house underwent extensive renovations in 2008 and is once again being used for receptions, weddings, and private parties. The house is open for walk-in tours from 10 to noon and 1 to 4 on Mondays.

    Wedding Review

    My official review of the Opera Guild House for a wedding:
    The location is beautiful but the people are a nightmare to work with after the fact.
    The woman who was suppose to be coordinating the day of the wedding was not there and had another gentleman fill in for her. He was nice, but had to keep on asking me questions about where all the rentals should go while I was getting ready for my big day. The grass was not resurface before the wedding like they said it would be, so all of the ladies heels were falling in to ground, making it hard to walk own the "isle". And when it came time to give us back our deposit, they were almost a month late (despite what the contract stated) and took out over $200 and did not state a reason, or apologized for the tardiness of the check. Very disappointing indeed.
