You could try checking the state parks in your area to see if they have facilities you could use.

I’ve heard great things and seen beautiful pictures of weddings at Glen Echo Park. Not sure what the rental fees are there.

If you would consider heading down the other end of the beltway, pg parks have a few great ceremony/reception venues. MoCo residents also receive a discount on venue rental (up to 40% depending on the venue). One in particular, Snow Hill Manor, rents for $1200 & comes with a tented brick patio.  Check out the link below to all of the rental facilities.


I forgot that you mentioned the billingsley house in PG county.  I would still consider snow hill manor or pg ballroom since the price is cheap.

@ifollowbliss If you are only having 60 people, then try a nice restaurant. I have been to many NY wedding in the city where a restaurant adds a certain class that a banquet hall may not. This would cut down on having to rent a place and hire a caterer too. I have been to the D.C. area a couple of times and I know there are some nice, ritzy places to have a reception. Some places will accomodate a ceremony too.

I agree with Radient Bride.  PG country has some amazing venues.  One if my bridesmaids is getting married at Newton White Mansion June 5 (she beat me to it) and Oxon Hill Mansion is beautiful.  If I had a smaller wedding I would so get married there.  MoCo residents get a discount.   Aldelphi Mill was about $800 if I remember correctly. Good luck!! This area is so expensive for weddings!!

Given your location and guest size, I highly recommend you check out The Comus Inn in Dickerson/Boyds.  I had a Sunday afternoon wedding there in Summer 2008 for 55 people and was able to stay close to your budget (just for all things venue-related, not dress, rings, officiant, etc.). 

They have a lovely back patio with a sunken fountain that looks out onto Sugarloaf mountain.  We had our ceremony out there, then had the reception indoors.  The reception room is pretty, and has nice wooden bar and a dance floor.  I didn’t even feel like we had to decorate except for modest centerpieces on the table.

They were pretty flexible on a lot of the details, too.
