Planning a wedding event in Washington DC? You'll need to make sure you have all the necessary permits to ensure your special day goes off without a hitch. The District of Columbia has a number of regulations and requirements that must be met in order to hold a wedding event in the city. The Parks Division can accept requests for ceremonial permits for any park in the city, except Memory Grove Park. This is due to limited parking at Memory Grove Park and other events scheduled at the Memorial House, which is managed by the Heritage Foundation.
If you're looking to book the Memory Grove Park Memorial House for a wedding, ceremony, or other event, you should contact Preservation Utah directly at (80) 521-7969. The Government of the District of Columbia provides essential municipal services in support of special events to ensure that events that occur in the public space of the District of Columbia are conducted in a manner that protects public health and safety. The Mayor's Special Events Working Group (MSETG) is responsible for coordinating the city's public safety planning efforts for events that require inter-agency coordination. Most parking restrictions in the District of Columbia are set forth in Title 18 (Vehicles and Traffic) and Chapter 24 (Standing, Standing, and Other People Who Don't Move) of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR). The forms and links needed to apply for a special event permit can be found on the DC government website. After completing a form, mail it to the address included in the document. In addition to parking regulations, there are other permits that must be obtained for a wedding event.
These include photography permits, wedding permits, and any other permits required by law. Details on First Amendment assemblies in the District of Columbia can be found in the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations. Organizing a special event in a park requires additional permits. Information about these permits can be found on the DC government website.
