I’ve been to a wedding there.  It was beautiful!  I probably can’t be as much help as dallastxbride, but I can answer any questions you might have from a guest’s perspective!

We considered the place for our wedding, but decided against it. It photographs beautifully!

I’ve been to two weddings at Arlington Hall and while it is a very beautiful setting the weddings I went to had over two-hundred guests and the reception was just awkward. Perhaps better planning could make it work, but at both weddings it was impossible for more than a third of the guests to witness big moments like the first dance and cutting the cake. If you do choose this venue, and it is so pretty that you might just fall in love with it, I would make certain to work very closely with your planner or their staff on the logistics of shifting your guests for those big moments!

This was our issue with it as well; the main ballroom is there but then you have about 5 other areas that guests can go to, which means fragmenting the party a little bit. I mean you want your guests to mingle, but it was a little much.

I suggest keeping your group small enough to fit in the main ballroom or having a few of those other rooms closed (so guests don’t wander in there and have their own separate parties!).

I had my wedding at Arlington Hall in June!! 

It could not have been more perfect and I do not think it fractures the chance for guests celebrate together.  I had 250+ guests and there was plenty of room in the Great Hall for everyone to dine.  The first dance was easy for everyone to see with absolutely no problems–the floor is in the front of the massive room!  The wedding cake cutting was in the foyer and the groom’s cake in the Lee Room and everyone fit (obviously everyone stood but it doesn’t take long and it didn’t bother me or the guests).  The majority of the nights guests hung out in the Great Hall and danced.  Personally, I like that they had the option to go to the Turtle Creek or Lee terrace to smoke one of our custom cigars (we got a cigar roller), get a drink, get away from the loud music, etc. because we had a lof of family and friends who do not see each other often.  No one ever exited for long and it kept everyone happy.  If you prefer all guests together and all eyes on your at all times… then yes, perhaps it is not your venue. 

The majority of my guests were out of towners and I had SO MANY compliments on the venue.  Clearly I’m biased…but I think it’s a treat to share such a beautiful space with your guests.
