Your Wedding at Ant Street Inn

Spectacular weddings and receptions can be held at the restored Ant Street Inn in historic downtown Brenham, Texas. This vintage building offers several locations for your reception.

Wedding Packages include a combination of the ballroom, garden, veranda and guest rooms. Brides may select their own vendors to make their wedding weekend fit their personality!

(See more wedding photos under "Photo Gallery" at the bottom of the page!)

There are so many conveniences and advantages to holding your wedding and/or reception at the Ant Street Inn!  To begin, we only book one wedding event per weekend.  That means you are not under the excessive time crunch that other wedding "factories" impose.

In and out in four hours?  Who can really do that, and not worry the entire time about, "How will the venue manager react if we can't get the decorations down in time?"  Packages are available that would allow you to begin decorating the Ballroom as early as 10:00 AM the day prior to your reception!  When your reception ends, all that is required is to make sure the food and beverages are put away and stored properly.  You have until 2:00 PM the day following your reception to finish removing decorations and any final clean-up activities!

Packages are available that include all of our 15 guest rooms.  This gives wedding party, family and close friends the place to dress and prepare right where all the action is!  And when the reception is over, your family and close friends just have to walk up stairs to find the comfort and elegance of the Ant Street Inn waiting for them!  And of course, your overnight Ant Street Inn guests are treated to a fantastic, private breakfast, with a menu and serving time of your choosing, prepared by the award winning Brenham Grill!

Event Staff

Our friendly event staff are here to help each bride and groom make their wedding guests feel special, not just during the reception, but throughout their entire stay.

While our staff is excessively helpful and knowledgeable, we are not wedding planners or "Day Of" coordinators.  We are happy, however, to work with your planner and/or coordinator, as well as the vendors and service providers you select, to make sure they have all the information and tools available to make your wedding event run smoothly.

The Ballroom

The elegant ballroom of 4,000 square feet, showcasing a stained glass ceiling dome and hardwood dance floors, is the perfect location for your reception, with plenty of room for seated diners and twisting dancers!

 

Maximum occupancy of the ballroom is 250 guests seated at tables, leaving enough space for dancing!

 

The ballroom opens onto a 120 foot long covered veranda overlooking the gardens which provide additional outdoor space to extend the party.

The Garden Arbor

Our gardens are a beautiful location for your ceremony.  Able to seat up to 250 guests, with the arbor providing the perfect focal point, your guests will be enchanted by the serene setting you have chosen!  Packages including the wedding ceremony also include the officiant.

 

 

The large garden arbor is also available for the perfect garden reception if you choose to have your ceremony at an offsite location. The covered back veranda could also be used for al fresco rehearsal dinners and cocktail hours between the ceremony and reception.
