The Westin Alexandria
About Westin Weddings at The Westin Alexandria
Your wedding day should be a day distinctly about you. At The Westin Alexandria, we’ll transform our ballroom and event spaces to reflect your unique style—from your favorite flowers in table centerpieces to the sound of your chosen music softly filtering through the air. Choose one of our wedding packages for an all-inclusive experience, from a luxury bridal suite with a complimentary one-night stay to a three-hour open bar.
Our culinary team will create a menu that uses your personal tastes as a starting point for an unforgettable meal. Because we want you to be able to relax and enjoy the magic of the moment, you’ll be partnered with a dedicated Westin Wedding Specialist who will be by your side from the initial planning stages up until the last guest leaves the reception.
A relaxing oasis awaits you and your guests in our stylish and refreshing guest rooms, while our location just minutes from Washington D.C. lets you easily access endless attractions before and after the big event.
Whether you’ve always dreamed of an extravagant reception for 700 or an intimate party for 50, we’ll host an event that your guests will talk about for years to come. With your favorite botanicals, the soft glow of candlelight, and your chosen color scheme, our venues can be transformed into spaces perfectly attuned to your personality.
At just under 8,000 square feet, our Edison Ballroom is the largest in the area and can accommodate 700 for a reception, or 400 for dinner and dancing. Elegant dropped ceilings, contemporary chandeliers, neutral hues, and dark wood furnishings make this space a sophisticated canvas for your big day.
In addition to the ballroom, the Wright Room is a popular choice for smaller affairs of up to 50 people. Decorated in tasteful hues of green, metallic gold, crimson, and blue, the room features a magnificent view of the Masonic Memorial through large windows.
Pose for photographs on the hotel’s grand staircase, or enjoy cocktails in the pre-function area overlooking the lobby. We’ll make sure every detail is in place so you can live in the moment on your magical day.
EVENT CATERING AND CUISINE
At The Westin Alexandria, the array of tantalizing options available for your wedding reception is limitless. Choose from nutritious and savory vegetarian options like stilton fritters with fig jam or crisp organic vegetable spring rolls. Or, enjoy delicious, sustainable, and seasonal options such as wild shrimp tacos, line-caught tuna tartare, and all-natural beef sliders. No matter what your tastes may be, our culinary staff will work with you to create a menu that will delight you and your guests.
If you prefer to use an outside caterer, we ask that they submit the appropriate licenses for our review. We work with several local bakeries who specialize in wedding cakes, should you require a recommendation. Likewise, we are happy to suggest preferred vendors for chairs, linens, and china.
Your personal Westin Wedding Specialist will be by your side throughout the planning stages of your wedding, as well as on the big day itself. Let us handle all the details so you can relax and enjoy a perfect celebration.
