    Stunning and Elegant Venue

    My husband and I chose the Mansion because we frequented their swing dance nights during our dating days. It holds a special place in our hearts, and since it's so beautiful, it was the perfect place for us to host our wedding reception. Booking and confirming details with their staff was so easy. The bridal room is stunning, and the many rooms were perfect for guests to mingle during cocktail hour. Since the Mansion allows outside vendors, we were able to make the day exactly what we wanted with drinks, food, and decor. The only thing I wish I knew to budget was ice and cooling containers for the drinks. The Mansion does not have an ice maker, so you'll have to provide that as well as coolers or bins to keep your drinks cool. Other than that little detail, it was perfect!

    The Mansion is a dream spot!

    We had our wedding at The Mansion last month and it was amazing!! After our long wait to have our wedding this spot lived up to the hype. The venue itself is gorgeous. The courtyard was beautiful spot for the ceremony and it is connected to the ball room. Guest were taking pictures all around the venue through out the night. Due to covid we had to postpone our wedding three times in the last year. Mari and the staff at The Mansion were so easy to work with and extremely helpful as we were rescheduling. Cannot stress enough how helpful Mari was through out the whole planning process. She was extremely communicative and timely. She also had recommended vendors for several things we needed, which is always extremely helpful. We had the most perfect day, and I would recommend this place to anyone!

    The Mansion Austin's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words, Lucy! It was such a pleasure to work with you. It was a long time coming, so I'm so happy to hear your day was perfect! Best wishes.

    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.

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.
