Where are you located in MD – I’m using Newton White Mansion (Mitchellville off of 193) but my second choice was the Great Room in Savage MD – that’s a fantastic space and I think it holds at least 100-150. Good luck and welcome to the Bee!

I just stumbled across this post and I am getting married on Dec. 7th in Baltimore as well!!!


We only looked at venues in the city because the majority of our guests are coming from out of town and we wanted to be accomodating. I feel in love with the Belvedere. It was absolutely beautiful.

Ultimately we chose the Radisson in the city because it could accomodate a large crowd, had rooms for the guests to stay and was a lot more budget friendly.

There are so many other wonderful venues in the area. My cousin recently had his wedding (ceremony and reception) at the American Visionary Art Musuem.

@Soon2bthee:  If I had that guest count, I would get married at Cloisters Castle or Chase Court. I thought they were both gorgeous, but we are having 150. Or the Castle at Maryvale. I could be wrong, but I think you can have a fire in the fireplace at all three!

The Cloisters and The Gramercy are beautiful unqiue spaces in the county but not too far away, if you want something out of the city.  In the city check out 1840s Ballroom, Engineer’s Club, The Tremont, The Belvedere.  Of course, the major hotels downtown of course all do weddings. I personally love The Hotel Monaco–the building is incredible!!  Pier 5 Hotel is very cool too.  With your numbers consider any of the museums–AVAM (as mentioned), Gertrude’s at the BMA, The Walters, The Museum of Industry, the B&O Museum as well as restaurants like Hall at Woodberry, Pazo, Kali’s Court.


Good luck!

You’ve gotten some fantastic suggestions. I’ll add the National Aquarium, Evergreen House, Cylburn Arboretum, Liriodendron Mansion, and Historic Oakland Manor to the list.

The Great Room is not expensive at all – for something in Howard County, it’s a bargain. You just have to bring in everything, from catering, floral, music, etc.

I wish I could have used Newton White – we’re getting married in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel instead, maybe for a party next year to celebrate!
