Weddings at The Commonwealth Club
Tradition and Hospitality are Always in Style
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. The culmination of months of planning and preparing, it should be handled by professionals who want to make your vision a reality. Each wedding reception held here is unique and receives our undivided attention so you -- and each of your guests -- can be treated to a memorable experience, served in a time-honored Southern style.
Located in the heart of downtown Richmond, The Commonwealth Club provides a traditional and timeless venue for weddings - big or small. Established in 1890, several generations have celebrated their wedding day in our beautiful ballroom, which was designed to house such special occasions. The Commonwealth Club stands alone with its beautiful facilities and unmatched quality in cuisine, presentation and service.
Throughout the planning process to the moment you arrive for your reception, you will feel confident knowing that everything is taken care of and each detail will be carefully executed by our dedicated staff, allowing you to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest!
