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, corporate meetings, etc. We offer rental only packages as well as catered or both. Meaning, we can provide a partial menu and you may supplement the food with your "Uncle Joe's" famous jambalaya or etouffee that is a traditional item served at the reception." What we are saying is if you would like to bring in additional or all food items, you are allowed to, including alcohol, which most places do not allow. We are extremely flexible.
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 11am which gives you ample time for additional decorating, taking photos, preparing food, etc.
