Someone asked us if you can have a wedding at the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California. Actually, you can, though it'll cost you $7,500 to reserve the Castle for 1 to 50 people for up to 3 hours, and $15,000 for parties larger than 50 people or for weddings lasting longer than 3 hours. That doesn't inlcude the nonrefundable deposit of $500 to $1,000, as well as a $50 scheduling fee and the cost of staff reimbursement. Oh, and insurance for up to $1 million is required. So, if it doesn't conflict with their regularly scheduled tour and you've got the money, go for it. For more information call them at 805-927-2070.
Here's a video from YouTube which shows you the inside and outside of Hearst Castle, in case you are thinking of dropping some change and getting hitched at The Castle.
