This wedding venue is where romantic meets country! Being a family-owned and operated event space, the Douglas Manor has become a fan favorite for couples looking for an outdoor wedding of any style in Columbiana, just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Featuring the beautiful outdoors and open fields, this wedding venue is sure to take everyone’s breath away the second they see it for the first time!
Located on the outskirts of Birmingham, this venue is on 32-acres of beautiful woods. You can’t find anything more natural and peaceful the Douglas Manor! If you choose this wedding venue for your special day, you’ll feel like you are on a secluded property where you, your partner, and your guests are the only people on Earth – it’s truly amazing! With a backdrop that doesn’t need anything extra to make your wedding day photos stunning, this venue is definitely one to check out!
The thing I love the most about this wedding venue (and what honestly make this such a popular wedding venue in Birmingham) is how natural and woodsy it is. Since the venue is located on 32-acres of nothing but the beautiful outdoors, you will have 360-degree views of the beautifully kept grounds and woods. It’s stunning! As if this wedding venue couldn’t get any better, there is an on-site tranquil pond that you can tie the knot in front of! This is where most couples decide to vow their love to each other, and the photos you will get in front of the pond are sure to bring happy tears to your eyes! Stand on the stone arch that’s covered in flowers and say your “I dos” while being surrounded by the people you love most.
Another thing that makes Douglas Manor so incredible is that, no matter what your wedding style is, you can make it work at this venue. Douglas Manor really does cater to so many different brides, but especially ones that are wanting a more luxurious and peaceful wedding day.
One of best things about this Alabama wedding venue is that it is spacious enough where, if you have a larger guest list, there will be no need to worry about space! Fitting up to 350 guests both indoors and outdoors, this wedding venue is spacious enough to fit all your loved ones. This is incredible news for brides who’s families are quite large, or for those who simply need to find a venue that can accommodate for their large guest list!
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a wedding venue is the cost of renting. You may fall in love with a venue, but cost is most definitely something that needs to be considered when you are planning from a budget. Lucky for you, this place is an affordable wedding venue, ranging from $4,275-5,775 on average to rent for your wedding. The price does depend on the season and date of the wedding, but the price can’t be beaten regardless!
This venue allows you to bring in your own vendors for catering and alcohol! This is great news for all of the brides who have a list of “dream vendors” to work with. However, Douglas Manor has thought of everything, because if you don’t have anyone certain in mind and you are looking for recommendations, they can provide you with a ‘preferred vendor list’ that lists out vendors they know, trust, and have worked with before. This makes it easy for you to have exactly what you want on your wedding day. Douglas Manor serves their couples so well, and that is definitely something to consider when you are choosing a wedding venue.
