The TFWC Mansion will handle just about any size group, and you may rent only the elegant Grand Ballroom or the Mansion’s entire ground floor. We are centrally located, near the UT west campus, convenient to churches, hotels and restaurants.

We allow our clients to use any licensed caterer or bartender. Furniture, flowers, baker, and everything else, are entirely your choice.

Please call (512) 476-5845 or email reservations@themansion.info to see if your preferred date is available. We are currently offering a discount for Fridays and Sundays.

The Mansion is a Texas Historic Landmark, an Austin Historic Landmark and is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. If you have not visited before, it would be worth making an appointment just to see the beautiful interior. There is really nothing quite as grand in scale or as elegant in design in the central Texas area.

We are dedicated to making your event a memorable one, and by allowing us to be your hosts you are helping preserve this beautiful historic landmark.

Sincerely,
The staff at The Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs Mansion Read less

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!

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.

THIS IS THE BEST PLACE EVER to host a wedding :) I went to 15-20 places in Austin, and ended up having my wedding here 2 months ago. Mari, the event planner was so thorough and sweet with the entire process. You dont have to worry about the music being too loud, which vendors you have to use, etc., NO RULES! If you are a bride planning everything yourself, it means a lot to choose your own vendors-- all of which who have already worked with TWFC and know their kitchen, their space, etc. Also a little secret... Since its a non-profit, you can hire a bartender who is certified, and bring in whoever you want. Its wayyy cheaper, and allows you have open bar without the crazy cost. You can go to Specs and buy it all yourself, and RETURN whatever bottles you dont end up using! Check out their Pinterest page, it gives really good ideas, especially for lighting!!

Loved the TFWCM!!! Perfect place for any size wedding. Mari and the staff were very accommodating with everything. She was able to meet several times before the wedding to walk through the mansion and made excellent recommendations of what to do and where to place things. We were able to chose our own caterer, DJ, and even brought our own alcohol. The only thing I wish was included was the rentals of the table and chairs (however, renting from them was much less expensive than anywhere else). Other than that, it was a great value and a beautiful, classic venue!!

If I were asked to sum up the TFWC mansion as a wedding venue…..perfect. My wife and I were feeling a bit stressed about planning our Austin wedding in October from San Francisco but knew it had to be here as soon we saw the character and learned of its history. Mari was just great with the coordination and communicating long distance over email and by phone. Our family and friends still have not stopped talking about how beautiful our wedding was and the amazing night they had at the TFWCM. I def recommend the mansion to others looking for a spacious, beautiful, elegant, classic, vintage, wedding venue.

The mansion was the perfect place for our wedding reception. Mari and her staff were great and had excellent vendor recommendations. It was such a joy to walk into the main ballroom and see all our friends and family waiting for us as we had imagined! The venue is naturally so beautiful that we didn't need to do any additional decoration, it's well air-conditioned, and the acoustics were great. We had about 150 guests seated comfortably with a large dance floor in the ballroom. We also enjoyed the fact that our payment for reserving the space goes toward the preservation of the mansion, a place my wife and I are obviously very happy to support!

TFWC was the perfect backdrop for our special day. Mari was a pleasure to work with through the whole process, responding to emails quickly and being very flexible with us. Keep in mind that when selecting TFWC you will be responsible for set up and clean up. That was a small negative to my husband and I in the grand scheme of things. We absolutely fell in the love with the venue the moment we walked in. TFWC allowed us the flexibility to use the vendors of our choice, which was important to us and let us save money where we could. TFWC allowed us to have everything indoors (which was important since our wedding was in June), have the ceremony & reception at one place, a big dance floor and spacious dining with the uniqueness of venue so different from your typical hotel ballroom.

I absolutely loved having our wedding at The Mansion. We worked with Mari Lopez, and she was incredibly helpful and willing to help us make our day perfect. They are getting more and more popular though, so book early and stay in contact!

We knew we wanted to get married at the Mansion before we even got engaged. A friend of mine had gotten married there several years ago, and I just knew when I saw the photos that I wanted to get married there. We looked at several other places, but I knew that this was 'the' place. Mari was wonderful, and let us sneak in several times to check something out, or show one of our family members the venue. It is just such a gorgeous place, and it really made our wedding. I was so happy with everyone I spoke with there, everyone was so nice. And, they even took down the scary china dolls for Travis. :)
