Mari, at the Texas Federation was so easy to work with, she was also very accommodating and helpful with our needs and questions. The venue itself is just beautiful, and spacious. We got so many compliments. This place was the best value for being in the middle of Austin!

Can't say enough good things about Mari and the Fed. We walked through the place at least four or five times before our wedding date, and Mari was always prompt in returning our emails and accommodating with scheduling.

We needed a space that could fit 250+ people comfortably, and there's a surprising lack of venues in downtown/central Austin that can accommodate that number and also allow you to bring in your own vendors. An added bonus, the Fed is run by a nonprofit- you can feel good about where your money is going (and the tax-free charges are pretty nice, too).

The front rooms and ballroom are gorgeous and full of character, fun for out-of-town visitors. Parking in the immediate area is a little tight, but there's a garage less than two blocks away that's included when you book the venue. They also have their own tables and chairs available for rental. While you can bring in your own, the Fed will set up their tables and chairs ahead of time, saving you valuable time and manpower on the day-of.

We loved being so close to our church (St. Austin) and campus, and the proximity to downtown made continuing the festivities super easy. Beautiful venue, would definitely do it all over again!

The Mansion was the ideal venue for our daughter’s wedding reception. Not only is the traditional architecture stunning and accommodating, it was a comfort to know the venue could handle our daughter’s moving-target guest list. All the etiquette books assured us most of her invitees would be on vacation in July, but when guest number 300 RSVP’d, we rested in the assurance that everyone would have a seat while every dancer would have room to Wobble. Mari was a delight to work with throughout every phase of the planning; she was not only professional, but flexible and hospitable, like the southern manor she represents. At the end of the night, we had future brides saying they can’t wait to book the venue, and young married couples regretting they hadn’t checked it out. The Mansion is definitely the best “bang for your buck” in Austin!

Finding a wedding venue in Austin can be difficult, especially depending on the time of year you are looking for. We had visited several venues around town, and we kept running into venues that either A) were full-service: provided food, cake, rentals, etc...which could end up being really pricey and gives you less control; or B) were just an empty room in a venue that wasn't really intended to hold weddings and would require a lot of work to plan/organize/make wedding appropriate. We finally came across the TFWC mansion and from the instant we walked in the front doors, we knew we had found our place. The building is truly stunning and has so much charm and character.

We worked with Mari who is so sweet and knowledgeable. She has seen a lot of events/weddings take place here, so she has a lot of great advice. She was always very easy to reach when we did have questions. We rented the whole house and held our ceremony and reception in the grand ballroom (big blue room at the back of the house), with a cocktail hour/room flip in between. During the cocktail hour/room flip, our guests went back to the front of the house, where we had passed hors d'oeuvres and wine/beer/cocktails.

I can't imagine a more perfect venue for us than the TFWC mansion. We were so, so pleased with how everything came together and absolutely recommend this venue to others.

The Texas Women's Federation Mansion was a fairytale venue. We loved the flexibility of the location, because we initially thought we would have an outdoor ceremony in the courtyard, but when the weather turned chilly, we were able to quickly move to one of the indoor rooms. We also received so many compliments from the guests. It was the perfect place for our ceremony and reception. There were two small communication issues which is why I reduced the score from all 5.0 stars; however, those were the *only* two MINOR details which were resolved -- the staff at the Mansion were very flexible and easy to work with, it was an absolutely beautiful event, and I would do it all over again at the Mansion in a heartbeat!!

Absolutely beautiful venue for a wedding! The ballroom is magical and HUGE, the courtyard is intimate and picturesque, and the front parlors are perfect for cocktail hour. It was a great one stop shop for our whole wedding day, and the icing on the cake is the fact that you get to pick all your own vendors and are able to save a ton of money on alcohol since it's byob, so you just need bartenders :) Mari was our venue coordinator, and she was always quick to respond, allowed me to come see the venue numerous times between booking and the big day, and coordinated the chair and table rentals (even after I realized I had just missed the date I was supposed to order by), basically, Mari was wonderful! The only thing I wish was allowed, was if we could have left some of the bigger props until the next morning to pick up, but everything had to be out by the end time of your reserved hours (this is probably because they host so many weddings though, and often have one the next day, so it totally makes sense). Overall, it was a dream venue right in the heart of Austin <3

The Mansion was a perfect place to host our August wedding. There was a lovely courtyard in the shade for the ceremony, and the gorgeous air-conditioned ballroom was perfect for the reception. Furthermore, because it is in the heart of the city, friends could stay at nearby hotels and take taxis instead of driving. Mari was a breeze to work with - she responded to all emails within hours, answered my many questions, and met with me several times at the venue. If you want an easy, gorgeous place to have a wedding, you can't go wrong with the Mansion.

Other reasons we loved it:

- They had tables and pretty chairs to rent there, it was nice I didn't have to worry about renting those.
- Amazing place to have pictures.
- Courtyard was gorgeous, too!
- No pressure to choose particular vendors.
- Location!, and offered parking spots!

Highly recommend! We were looking for an all in one venue to hold the ceremony and reception. This had everything that we needed with a ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour in the front rooms and reception in the beautiful ballroom. We had so many compliments on this beautiful venue. The only catch is that they get you with the rehearsal. You get an 8 hour inclusive block and have to pay for any additional hours, including any additional hours the day before for a rehearsal. We were lucky enough to get our rehearsal time for free since we had to do it on a Friday morning instead of Friday evening (they had another event) but we did have to pay for an extra hour the night of due to clean up. Mari was great to work with, very professional. We LOVED this place!
