Belle Haven Country Club

Alexandria, Virginia

Belle Haven Country Club looks like something out of a storybook. The front of the club is covered in stone and has a very castle-like appearance. Located in Alexandria, Virginia’s Belle Haven area it is set not far off the Potomac and a few miles from Old Town’s hotels and shopping district. With an interesting history, Belle Haven Country Club’s roots date back to the 1920s.

I would recommend using the Old Town area as a “home base” for your host hotels, rehearsal dinner and other wedding events and then provide transportation for your bridal party- and possibly all of your wedding guests to and from the club.

And for your golf-loving-fiance (or yourself, I am a golfer!) by choosing the club for your wedding you are able to golf on the course the Friday before your wedding (pending availability).

All events must be sponsored by a member of the club.

Event Space Details:

Wedding ceremonies can be held outdoors or inside. Outdoor ceremonies are available in April, May, October and November on the patio overlooking the golf course.

During the same months, cocktail hours can also take place on the patio or on in the area just outside the ballroom which includes a terrace.

The Club’s ballroom can accommodate up to 250 for a seated dinner including space for band/DJ and a dance floor

The existing decor includes gold swagged curtains on the windows, class chandeliers and carpet with red, blue and gold accents.


As mentioned above, if you hosted your wedding reception here I would recommend using Old Town as your “home base.” Choose 2 or 3 hotels for your guests and host your rehearsal dinner and brunch there as well. It is a gorgeous place for guests to walk around…filled with history, charm, delicious restaurants, and fun boutiques.

Hotels: Hotel Monaco, Lorien Hotel & Spa, and Residence Inn Old Town

Safari Tip: Create a list of “Must Do” activities for your guests such as the Old Town Ghost Tour, visiting the waterfront and taking a boat ride over to George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
