I wish I could help!  I have only driven past Grey Rock (it’s near my apartment).  I have had friends who have had weddings at both the 1840s Ballroom & Gramercy Mansion.  Both were happy with their weddings, I think it depends on what you want.  1849s ballroom is in downtown Baltimore.  Gramercy Mansion is definitely older and a bit more traditional looking, it’s a historic mansion. 

I am actually having my rehearsal dinner at Elkridge Furnace Inn.  It’s a pretty cool building and the food is supposed to be great.  They have a nice permanent tent, so you can have an outdoor wedding.  I believe they also have gardens and what-not.  As a reference point, it’s probably about 45 minutes outside of downtown Baltimore.

@pb and j:Weighing in a bit late here. My fiance and I loved Grey Rock. It was very elegant, a great price, and everyone that works there is very helpful and professional. We decided not to have our wedding there for 2 reasons. One was that our guests would have to eat outside and the dancing would have to be inside for the size of our wedding. We wanted to have a more integrated feel. The other was that there are a few steps to get in and out. This would be a problem for some of our older guests. We are still using them for catering. Some days I wish that we used them since it sounds like they help you coordinate everything.

i have visited gramery mansion and the oudoor ceremony space is beautiful!!! the reception area wasn’t quite what i was looking for b/c the tables are basically on a patio with a roof and sides of plastic that rolls down…this is connected to the mansion which is nice looking, but not quite my style…all i could picture were bugs flying around dinner and it being too hot and uncomfortable for some elderly guests…(of course, that was when we were planning on a june wedding and we’ve since changed that, but anyways…)

@pb and j:When they told us that we’d have the indoor/outdoor split, our guest list was 150. I was unable to attend a tasting since I live outside the area and they have them on week nights. I sent a trusted family member and they had a delicious night.  also trusted them since my family had been to events they catered before and loved the food. We’ve repeatedly heard from other vendors that Simply Elegant will give you the best food for your dollar. The woman in charge of the catering is very helpful, no nonsense, but will go out of her way for you. 

 

I’m not sure if this is correct, but I’ve heard with Grammercy mansion not everything is in one room. We went with 1840’s Ballroom. It is gorgeous and holds everyone in one place. My only reservation with them is that most of your guests will have to park a block or 2 away.

 

We also looked at the Engineers club. It was beautiful but too far outside of the budget. I heard they occaisionally run specials though.

@pb and j: I’m not sure how interested you are in venues that are located outside of Baltimore but Antrim 1844 is amazing.  It’s located in Taneytown, MD about an hour northwest of Baltimore. It’s a beautiful Civil War mansion that’s been converted into a bed and breakfast.  It’s worth a look if you are interested in historic looking venues.
