About Company Biography

About The Lafayette Ballroom

Since 1981,  The Lafayette Ballroom has been the perfect location for celebrating weddings, wedding receptions, family or class reunions, balls, quinceaneras, and  corporate events in LaGrange, Georgia.  With 4,000 square feet of space in the full ballroom, the facility can host wedding receptions seating up to 275 people. The Courtyard Garden showcases a circular fountain with seasonal plantings and a classic pergola with a cascading fountain as a backdrop for your  intimate wedding ceremony.

Built and still owned and operated by the same LaGrange family, The Lafayette Ballroom plays a vital role in community life in west Georgia.   Located just off I-85 at Exit 18, The Lafayette Ballroom is conveniently situated between Atlanta, Georgia, and Columbus, Georgia, and is close to Hogansville, Greenville, Warm Springs, Pine Mountain, Valley, Auburn, Opelika, Hugely, Roanoke, and West Point.   The Ballroom is associated with the Lafayette Garden Inn and Conference Center, the area’s only full-service hotel, which makes celebrating your special occasion less stressful with lodging and rooms for dressing available in the hotel adjacent to The Ballroom.

The Conference Center and Ballroom areas were remodeled in 2012, including the spacious lobby area, which can be used as a pre-function gathering place for cocktails and registrations.   The Legends Tavern is located just off the lobby, and is also available for use as an event room for private parties, weddings, and reunions.   In addition to two on-site restaurants and our Lafayette Executive Catering Service, the ballroom is also located in the restaurant district  with many major chain restaurants and favorite local spots nearby.  The Conference Center area also features the Elm Room and the Rose Room, suitable for corporate meetings and small events.
