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.
