Breathtaking and beautiful, Blythewood is a greek revival mansion that is over 10,000 sq feet which stands on approx 10 acres. This mansion is the perfect setting for both your ceremony and reception, bridal shower, engagement party, etc. We offer rental only packages as well as catered or both. This meaning we can provide a partial menu and your uncle can supplement the food with his famous "Uncle Joe's jambalaya or etouffe." What we are saying is if you would like to bring in additional or all food items, you are allowed to, including alcohol. Blythewood has bed & breakfast rooms if you need to house, family, friends, or even the wedding party. Our weekend weddings are our specialty. This consist of renting all the Bed & Breakfast rooms and we would not host any other events from Friday at 4pm till Sunday at noon. Be sure and visit us on Facebook.
