We Hosted a Rehearsal Dinner for 40 and Then Opened it up to a Welcome Party for Over 100 People

The Milford House in Houston is a hidden jem! We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 40 and then opened it up to a Welcome Party for over 100 people. It was the perfect place to have both and everyone loved it! Ray couldn’t have been nicer to work with and the event was a huge success.

The Value, Location and Flexibility Truly Make The Milford House a Place I Would Recommend

The Milford House was the site for our ceremony and reception. We love the flexibility of the home and the ability to hand select our own vendors! Ray, the property manager, was professional, courteous and knowledgable. We also loved the location. Looking back I wish we would have been more on top of the request for maintaining the landscaping. The grass was a little long and some of the tree limbs/hedges needed to be cut back. Definitely not a deal breaker but a tip to pass on to future brides. The value, location and flexibility truly make the Milford House a place I would recommend.

We Heard so Many Times, “How Did You Find This Place?!? It’s Great!”

“The Milford House is the Italian Cultural Center of Houston. It is a beautiful little house near the medical center. They offer their venue, tables and chairs. It was perfect for our needs. The maximum seating is 120. There is a stage for dancing or additional seating. They also have a kitchen for use. If you have a licensed caterer come in, they can use the kitchen/ovens at no cost. If not, one of their staff members is available for “supervision” of the ovens for your use. Everyone loved the place and we heard so many times, “how did you find this place?!? It’s great!” Just a note, on-site parking is limited, but there is ample parking on the street. Also, no candles. You can use sterno for the catering, though.”

The Venue is Gorgeous and has Several Different Rooms Which Made it Easy to Stage Everything

We had our wedding on April 21 with a reception at the Milford House and it was perfect! Ray was very helpful in answering our questions and the venue was very flexible with our schedule. We were able to set up on Friday and then get back in Saturday morning to receive our flowers and cakes. The venue is gorgeous and has several different rooms which made it easy to stage everything and allowed for guests to break off and talk with each other in different areas. We would highly recommend the Milford House to anyone looking for a mid-sized wedding venue in a gorgeous historical home.

I had my Mom’s 60th Birthday Here and it was Perfect!

“Beautiful venue!!!! I had my mom’s 60th birthday here and it was perfect! I found it by researching online and once I came to visit, I knew it was the place. The coordinator is great to work with and very accommodating. All of my guests commented on the venue being so wonderful. I highly recommend the Italian Multicultural Center. Thank you so much Ray!”
