Can I just stop by and take a look?
Tours of The Mansion are strictly by appointment only. Because we are so much more than just a venue, there is a lot of information for us to go over. We like to make sure that customers leave with a complete understanding of how The Mansion works and all that we have to offer. Tours take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours, so be sure that you make appointments when you will be able to commit at least that much time.
What do the wedding reception packages include?
Package price includes rental of ENTIRE MANSION INCLUDING AN OVERNIGHT STAY, OUTDOOR TENT, CHAIRS, TABLES, PLATES, SILVERWARE, GLASSES, VALET PARKING AND SECURITY for up to 150 guests. You also receive the expert assistance of The Mansion's event coordinator to make planning your wedding a fun and stress-free process! Items such as flowers, food, and linens are separate costs. See next question below.
Can I bring in my own caterer or florist?
The members of The Mansion Wedding Network (Catering by big Catering, Linens by Mosaic, Flowers by Bill Chisnell Productions and Rentals by All Occasions) are required for events at The Mansion. Each of these companies is the best in Pittsburgh in their respective field, and has an intimate understanding of The Mansion's Facility, ensuring top quality and satisfaction. Rest assured that you will be able to work with each of these vendors to plan your ideal wedding!
Can we have a live band or have dancing outside in the tent?
Yes you can! The Mansion is permitted with outside dancing and/or live bands for up to four events per year. Slots for outdoor dancing are given on a first come, first served basis.
Overall, how much will my event cost?
Based on weddings held here in the past year, the average cost is between $30,000 and $40,000. Items such as food, flowers, and linens are very subjective, so the total cost of your event will be based on your choices in such areas, as well as the number of guests.

How far in advance should I book?
If The Mansion is somewhere that you definitely want to have your wedding, and the date you are looking for is available, it's best to reserve the date immediately. Remember there are far more couples looking to get married than there are weekends during wedding season.
How do I know if the date I want is still available?
We have an online availability calendar for just this purpose. We try to keep it up to date to keep interested couples informed. We recommend booking The Mansion as far in advance as possible to ensure that you get the date you want.
Do I get to do an overnight stay?
Yes! An overnight stay the night of your wedding is included. You can enhance your package by adding an overnight stay the evening before your wedding if you'd like, too! The Mansion can accommodate up to 14 of your closest friends and family, and each guest will receive a delicious breakfast in the morning served up by Chef James. Our couples have loved the convenience of spending the night before their wedding, and the romance of spending their first night as newlyweds in our Bridal Suite! Many have even returned to The Mansion's B&B each year on their anniversary! Call for details – 412.427.2877
