Dresser Mansion is a wedding venue located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Built in 1919 for the oil magnate Carl Dresser and his wife, Pauline, the mansion was, from the beginning, a blend of style and practicality. Intended as a place of entertainment and wonder, the mansion quickly established itself as a center of high society. The passage of time has served to enhance, rather than diminish, the building’s splendor and standing. In 2001, the property was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the mansion is delighted to welcome couples wishing to celebrate their love in elegance and comfort.
Facilities and Capacity
The design of Dresser Mansion is largely the work of Pauline Dresser. Pauline drew her inspiration from the styles and techniques she encountered on her tour of Europe. The building’s exterior was stuccoed by Italian artisans. The interior walls were textured and glazed by master craftsmen to resemble travertine marble. Much of the woodwork you will see is of Circassian walnut, which was obtained by special permission from the private forests of King George V. The dining room ceiling was painted by a French artist who came to America specifically to fulfill that commission. Pauline was also alert to considerations of comfort and convenience in the design of her home. Closets and shelves were built behind paneled walls to provide storage for her gowns and gloves. A steam cabinet, still something of a novelty item at the time, was installed in the bathroom. She even had a secret bar built behind the bookshelves of the library. Today, the venue is very proud to uphold the value that Pauline placed on elegance and comfort. The original beauty of the property is assiduously maintained, and the property’s team of expert staff are committed to providing exceptional service. You and your guests are invited to experience a beautiful garden ceremony and ballroom reception. Cozy get-ready rooms are also available for your convenience.
Dresser Mansion is able to accommodate intimate celebrations and grand occasions involving as many as 200 guests. Your booking entitles you to full access to the property, so you and your guests are free to explore the mansion’s rare and wondrous delights. Chairs and tables are provided. The venue’s sound system and kitchen are also available for use.

Perfect Location For A Wedding
Dresser Mansion was the perfect location for our wedding. I can't imaging getting married anywhere else. This historic home is beautiful & unique and our guests enjoyed exploring it and taking pictures throughout. Charlie is the nicest person and is so easy to work with and will do anything he can to make your event perfect. In addition to being such a beautiful location it's also one of the most affordable locations in Tulsa. Other venders (caterers, photographers,etc.) enjoy doing events there & that made planning the wedding so much easier.Sent on 12/08/2019

The Dresser Mansion is our favourite wedding venue in Tulsa, OK! Charlie and Bethany are so nice and easy to work with. You don't need to do much to have a fairytale wedding here. I love the old world feel and the teal bride's room. You won't regret getting married here. The outdoor courtyard allows you to have a pretty garden ceremony while still having access to the Mansion for the party! Our brides love this venue and it's a real treat to photograph!
Even though Dresser Mansion is our competition we can not say enough great things about Charlie and the entire staff there. They are always so professional and accommodating. The facility is always clean and so inviting. We love we when get to run into them!
Dresser Mansion is one of our Favorite mansions in Tulsa! It has a beautiful courtyard for outdoor ceremonies and the inside has so much charm! The Brides room is one of my favorites and has beautiful natural light that is a plus for photographing amazing images! We highly recommend checking out Dresser mansion for your Wedding Venue!
