Guidelines For Families & Guests

Formal attire appropriate for a formal white-tie event is expected of family members and all guests. This includes long dresses for females and tuxedos for males. 

It is the desire of The Augusta Symphony Guild that the Cotillion remains an adult affair. There'fore, the age requirement for the Debutante's escorts must be 18 years of age or a senior in high school to attend the Cotillion Ball. NO EXCEPTIONS. Debutante's siblings may attend the ball as guests provided that they are at least in the 9th grade or above. NO EXCEPTIONS. All other guests must have graduated from high school in order to attend the Cotillion Ball. NO EXCEPTIONS.


Guests' reservations are the responsibility of the Debutante's family. Your Presentation Fee includes five guests, which customarily consists of the debutante, one set of parents, and the two escorts. The fee for each additional guest (beyond the five complimentary guests) is $140.00. Please make guest fee checks payable to the Augusta Symphony Guild and mail to Mrs. Kelly Hagler, 3207 Huxley Drive, Augusta, Georgia 30909 by August 1st. Once you have paid for your reservations, there will be no refunds. 

With the legal drinking age of 21, the Augusta Symphony Guild, Inc. has requested that parents be advised that we cannot condone violations of the law. The Marriott requires that proper identification be provided before serving ANYONE alcohol. Alcohol will not be served to anyone under the age of 21 of age. ​
