Finding the perfect wedding venue in Washington, D.C. for a large guest count is not an easy feat. Fortunately, we have found an amazing wedding venue in the heart of the capital that has it all! Please read on for our ultimate International Spy Museum Wedding Guide.
SPY offers modern spaces with incredible views of the Capitol, the Washington Monument, and the Wharf (as well as a portion of Old Town Alexandria). Your venue space choices are as follows:
A great International Spy Wedding Guide wouldn’t be complete without telling you why hosting your wedding here is a unique and fun experience.
The transportation and lodging options for your wedding guests can’t get any easier. For starters, the Hilton Washington DC Hotel is conveniently located right at the back of the International Spy Museum. You can reserve a hotel block for you and your guests and you’ll be just steps away from your venue without stressing about traffic. Furthermore, all your guests have the option to use the hotel’s valet parking service. Lastly, if you’d like to use shuttles to bring guests to your wedding, the Museum has a drop-off area for large buses. A perfect set-up for a wedding day!
Here are some can’t-miss wedding photography tips for our SPY Wedding Guide:
I like the fact that the Museum has a curated list of caterers. Why? Because when venues do this, it means that these catering companies are experienced, trusted vendors. One less thing to worry about. As far as choosing who’s right for you, I highly recommend you attend a tasting with a caterer prior to signing a contract. Our clients love sophisticated bites full of flavor and clever presentations. I can’t think of a better way to impress your guests!
How far in advance should we book our date at the Spy Museum?
We encourage you to inquire as soon as you get engaged. If interested in hosting an elopement, intimate wedding or last minute big celebration (less than 4 months), reach out as well. Chances are they can accommodate you in one of their three spaces.
What’s the event rental time?
Every package includes 12 hours. You get 4 hours for setup, 6 hours of event time and 2 hours for breakdown.
What’s included in the rental package?
The Museum includes staff that will help you manage your venue needs, personnel to welcome your guests and planning support to work in tandem with your wedding planner. Also, you get plenty of furniture choices which are very likely to cover your wedding needs as far as dinner tables, high and low cocktail tables, chiavari chairs and dance floor.
