Can anyone tell me about their experiences with Aldie Mansion? Food? Can you customize their menus? Does it require a lot of decorating? Their prices for food fit my budget, but I am just wondering the overall cost of decorating, etc plus supplying alcohol. Can anyone help?

My sister had her ceremony and reception at Aldie back in 2003 – I loved it! The food was excellent – I believe Jeffrey Miller is the caterer. One thing I do remember about them though is they charge a lot of small fees (like chair rental). Overall, they were reasonably priced. The ballroom is beautiful – I feel like it’s the best of both worlds because you have the old mansion, but a new ballroom that can fit a lot of people. As for the alcohol, they gave us a list of how much to buy and what to buy. I think they were able to return unopened bottles as well. Message me if you’d like more info! Good luck!

- Wedding: October 2010 - The Pearl S. Buck House
I wet to Aldie Mansion on an open house night- but not one of the big ones with food. I don’t think it would need too much decor, I think the character of the house- carried through in the banquet room addition- is really lovely and offers its own focal points. Lots of decor could compete with it. They offer a service to put candles and family photos all over the place in bookcases, on tables, etc. I’m not sure about customizing the menu though- tweeking sure, but probably a new idea from scratch would cost extra. That and the 4 hour limit/2 weddings on Sat scared me away, but if you marry on a Sunday you can be there all day.
That’s all I know- it was my #2 🙂

I am getting married at Aldie in October, and I only have the best things to say about it. The mansion, party room, and groups are gorgeous. The bride room and grooms room are also really spacious and nice. I am barely decorating the party room because the warm is beautiful and warm on it’s own with a lot of natural light (even on cloudy days). The venue is gorgeous and the food at our tasting was incredible. Jeffrey A Miller Catering is really flexbile and helpful with setting menus, and the cakes are amazing!!! Message me if you have any other questions.
