Here is a suggested sample itinerary which can be customized to suit your needs.


Arrive at Bell Mill Mansion at 4 p.m. where you can check in and begin to relax for the weekend.
During warmer months, relax by the pool, take a walk around the gardens, play a game of tennis, or just relax in a chair and savor the special time. Cooler months can enjoy indoor activities such as racquetball, billiards, treat yourself to the spa amenities, enjoy a movie, or just relax. Around 5:00 p.m. you can get ready in our spa area and begin your rehearsal at 6:00 p.m. The dinner of your choice will be served for you and your guests following the rehearsal. Following the rehearsal dinner, enjoy a game of indoor racquetball or play a game of pool, relax in the Florida room to read or chat, take in a movie, or any other activity you desire before you retire for the evening in preparation for your big day.


Wake to a freshly cooked breakfast and spend the morning getting ready in our world class spa. While girls attend to hair and make-up, manicures, massages, and all the little details, the gentlemen are welcome to enjoy the amenities of Bell Mill Mansion. Whether it be a game, a movie, or the pool, the choices are limitless. Light lunch service will be served together or separately for all of the guests on property. Additional guests can of course be added as you wish. Snacks will be provided throughout the day in the caterer’s kitchen upon request. Later in the day, as guests arrive, they will be ushered to the ceremony location where your special marriage will occur with the officiant of your choice. Music/entertainment of your choice will be playing while guests enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while you are taking photographs. Following photos, the dinner service of your choice will be enjoyed. After dinner, dancing and entertainment and celebrating will be the focus until 11 p.m. at which time the festivities will end and your guests not staying on the property will depart. You can be whisked off to your honeymoon that evening or spend one more magical night married at Bell Mill Mansion.


Wake up to your first day of marriage with an after wedding brunch to celebrate with your immediate friends and family who stay with us overnight and then depart the grounds by noon.

Bell Mill Mansion must be toured to fully be able to see what a magical wedding you can have here with us. No matter if you elect to stay Friday and Saturday only or spend the entire weekend with us, Bell Mill Mansion will be a wedding weekend to remember.
