Awesome place for a wedding. Very affordable for a DC area venue, comfortable space, they let you bring your own caterer, there is an outside picnic area your guests can also use, and an adjacent playground. Easy parking.

Room for improvement: improve AC for the hot summer months, get a better sound system (we were playing off the machine), and get stage lightening that actually works so folks can use the stage.

All else was super.

I fell in love with this venue when we went to check it out. For the budget, location, and amenities included, it was a perfect choice for us. My only issue (and really pretty minor) is the person Fairfax County has chosen to manage events. The person, while very nice, is just simply, not the right fit. The person works odd hours, only available via email, and just doesn't get what it takes to plan a wedding. It would be a better fit to have someone who knows a little about event planning to run the logistics of booking events at the Grange. I had to be extremely thorough in my communications. However, the person who was actually on site the day of hte wedding--AWESOME!! So really, just get prepared to go over everything several times, communicate at odd hours, and explain over and over again the magnitude of the event you are throwing. We plan to go back in 10 years :)

If you are looking for value for the money, then the Great Falls Grange is a great choice! The setting is beautiful with possible indoor and outdoor options. The indoor option is an old meeting hall with high ceilings and hardwood floors. The outdoor option includes a small pavilion and the beauty of nature. There is a children's play area nearby, so the people with kids have a place to let them let off some energy. Our wedding happened on the day after a large storm, and the staff at the Grange were very responsive. They let us into the space early, and allowed us to completely change the plan from an indoor ceremony to an outdoor one. The rules for scheduling the rehearsal are a little frustrating, but understandable, and it all worked out well.

This site is owned by fairfax county, and as a resident of this county, we got a great deal to rent this building for our wedding. The only problem is that the people at the office don't always communicate, so when we made appointments to visit the site, sometimes people wouldn't be there to open it up for us (they would get the appointment dates/times mixed up). If you use this site, I would recommend following up on everything to make sure the correct people at the office get your stuff!!!
