If you’re planning to get married in our nation’s capital or the surrounding region, you’ll be happy to learn that there are some spectacular District of Columbia wedding venues. A major cultural center of the United States, Washington DC is filled with embassies, museums, and monuments – all contained within a mere 68 square miles. But did you know that you can also find world class dining, scenic parks, and a vibrant music scene? What amazing possibilities to start your new life together! Or, if you’d rather tie the knot outside of DC proper, there are some charming suburbs like Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, or Bethesda, Maryland. As you begin to plan the wedding of your dreams, the top item on your to-do list should be to find the perfect wedding venue in District of Columbia.
Far and away, the most popular type of wedding venues in District of Columbia are hotels. You can find everything from luxury resorts to mountainside retreats and charming bed and breakfasts to host your big day. The greater DC region also offers a wealth of barn and farm wedding venues. With spectacular views of rolling hills, some venues even place hay bales outdoors for some fun and rustic reception seating! Garden weddings are another great option, since many couples dream of soaking in the sun and fresh air while saying “I do". Just remember to establish a backup plan in case of inclement weather. For a uniquely themed wedding, you might want to explore some of the incredible DC museums as possible venues.
With so many different District of Columbia wedding venues available, perhaps your only limitation will be your budget. Check out our wedding budget planning tool to help manage your expenses.
After doing some initial research online for District of Columbia wedding venues, it is time to visit one or more of the best prospects. Make an appointment with the onsite event coordinator in order to get all of your questions answered. Don’t forget to ask if the venue is available on your preferred date and how many wedding guests can be accommodated. You’ll also want to find out if the venue offers all-inclusive wedding packages, or whether you can bring in outside vendors such as wedding photographers, caterers, and florists. If outside vendors are allowed (or required) and you plan to build your event from scratch, be sure to use our wedding vendor manager to track all vendor related details. Finally, ask to see a copy of the venue contract – and read the fine print!
If you’re feeling overwhelmed with so many wedding related to-dos, don’t worry – WeddingWire is here to help. Our free, comprehensive wedding checklist should keep you on track while planning this once-in-a-lifetime event.
