Dover Hall is a beautiful venue for a beautiful wedding

I could not have been happier with all of the services that Dover Hall provides. They took care of everything the day of the wedding. Everything went off without any problems. A day and evening full of memories and beautiful pictures that will last forever. You do not need... Read More to spend much on decorations at Dover Hall. It is a beautiful venue and just some flowers are enough. If you over do it takes away from the beauty of the architecture.

We absolutely loved having our wedding at Dover Hall. Everything came together so beautifully and the entire staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. The whole day was stress free because we knew all the little details were being handled for us. Every... Read More detail exceeded our expectations and we would do it all over again if we could!

Dover Hall is an absolutely stunning setting. My daughter had a wedding event last week and one of the owners, Jeff, and events manager, Eileen, could not have been kinder or more helpful- truly taking care of RVA bridal parties. The grand hall, the staircases, and the bride’s... Read More dressing room were all fantastic. The bride’s dressing room was large and airy with large windows, mirrors and chandelier – definitely a setting to excite a bride and set a princess mood. One of the bedrooms has a window seat with white and golden pillows that is beautiful for pictures. The pastoral landscape is inspiring and beautiful. I do not mean to go on too long, but I have also been a corporate officer and could picture a productive and fun retreat in this setting so close to Richmond yet removed from day to day. A cozy bar area, breakout rooms (I would want the windowed ‘conservatory’ for my team…) and the wide outdoors for games would be terrific. Just cannot say enough thanks to the management staff for the great event they gave us.

I had a date confirmed with Dover Hall (Oct 7). There were unexplained delays in sending us the contract. We learned that the company that organized the events left (without bothering to tell the couples until weeks later). Dover Hall's owners also sold/is selling to new owners.... Read More We were told to wait for our contract until a new management company was brought in (apparently the old one is going bankrupt). So we waited and waited, only to be told the new owners would not honor the lower rental fee quoted to us originally. We were forced to start from scratch with a new venue and date because of the delays and poor customer service at Dover Hall.

Nice venue but poor experience.

There are few venues like Dover Hall in greater Richmond, it is a wonderful setting. However, the staff of Dover Hall are pretentious and act like they are doing you a favor by letting you have your wedding there. They were very nice leading up to the event, but the day of... Read More they seemed like they didn't even want to have people in the house and made several rude comments to guests of the wedding.

This venue is stunning!! However, some staff members were not welcoming which made what should have been a one of a kind amazing experience uncomfortable at times.
