@Ms.BlueEyesDC: I’m a DC bride myself. I’m getting married at the Fairmont Hotel in the Colonnade Room, but I almost didn’t go that way. Places for you to check out:

  • Andersen House was awesome, had a garden, and lots of space for ceremony / cocktail hour (Museum)
  • The Willard Hotel was also amazing. Has an outdoor garden terrace, which I personally loved.
  • The Hay Adams Hotel rooftop has a view of the Whitehouse in the back drop, but is on the expensive side
  • The Decatur House is a historic property also that you might enjoy.

Good luck! What were you thinking about in particular?

@Ms.BlueEyesDC: The National Building Museum is amaaaaazing.  There’s even a courtyard area for your cocktail hour.  Seriously–the interior is so beautiful, you’d hardly need anything at all to decorate your ceremony.

We’re getting married at a park, by the Potomac.  🙂

Check out the Netherlands Carillon.  As for the monuments you can get married and the DC War Memorial, Jefferson, or the George Mason Memorial.  The permits are only $50.

Old Stone House is lovely also.  What venue are you considering for the reception?  Maybe there is something nearby?

Haven’t been to the Athenaeum but I hear it’s lovely.  I loved St Francis.  The only thing to work around with the ceremonies at the monuments is that there is no parking, you have to provide transportation for your guests. But I’ve seen a wedding at the Jefferson and it was beautiful!  If you can make it work, you should!

@NJmeetsBX: I loved St. Francis too…definitely a cool place. Especially if you want an old european styled wedding or just something romantic.

What about Glen Echo Park?  Unique in a very fun, quirky kinda way.
