the perfect venue!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the TFWC in March and couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue! Not only was the courtyard beautiful for an outdoor ceremony and the ballroom breathtaking for the reception, but Mari, the manager, was so great to work with! It's a historic building with southern charms and so many of my guests commented on how beautiful and unique the venue was. Not only that but they allow outside catering so I was able to have New Fortune Restaurant cater an 8 course asian banquet and had an open bar for a fraction of what I would've paid elsewhere. Another great thing about the Fed is that it's in downtown Austin making if convenient for guests since it's only a 5 minute uber ride from their hotels instead of an hour bus ride to Dripping Springs. We absolutely recommend this venue for any bride who wants a unique venue with lots of character and charm rather than the typical hotel ballroom.Sent on 05/31/2019

Amazing Place for a Wedding!
My husband and I had our wedding at the TFWC Mansion, and we were so pleased with how it turned out. We worked with Mari throughout the planning process, and she was more than accommodating when it came to our questions and visits to double check the space. The price point for the venue is very reasonable, especially in comparison to other wedding venues. We were able to go with a Saturday wedding instead of Sunday because the prices were so similar. It was also greatly convenient having rentals available through the venue. We arrived the day of, and the tables and chairs were all set up and ready to go how we wanted, and we were able to leave them at the end of the night. Overall, we were so happy with our experience at the Mansion.Sent on 07/18/2019
The Mansion Austin's reply:Thanks, Makayla! I'm so happy to hear that all went so well. I really enjoyed working with you and wish you and your husband the best.

Dream Come True
The Mansion was an absolute dream to get married in. My husband and I had our ceremony in the courtyard, cocktail hour in the front rooms, and the dinner/reception in the ballroom. The Mansion has so much charm, history, and beauty so you don't have to add much to make for a stunning wedding. Our guests were so impressed and we received many compliments. We could not have been happier with our experience here. An added bonus is that my parents got married here 35 years ago so The Mansion is extra special to us and will always hold a special place in our hearts.Sent on 03/23/2019
We absolutely love working with Texas Fed. It's a beautiful and historic space, with everything you could ask for as far as amenities go. Mari is awesome to work with too, she's very professional and friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
It is always a pleasure to deliver a cake at this gorgeous venue
We have DJed at the Texas Federation Women's Club Mansion many times and have enjoyed their facility. This is a perfect facility for large weddings and receptions as there is plenty of room to accomodate large groups of guests. Many times when we have been here, we have set up a separate audio system in the front area for cocktail hour, which allows guests to enjoy music while being away from the main reception hall. The stage also provides ample space for our large DJ setup. If you are looking for a large venue in the heart of downtown Austin, this is the facilty to go with.
