Bama Bed and Breakfast is a historic wedding venue located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Built in 1825, the colonial-style mansion boasts lush lawns, 100-year-old crepe myrtles, and sweeping covered porches that are awash in Southern charm. Just two blocks from Bryant Denny Stadium at the University of Alabama, this inn offers exciting attractions for out-of-town guests to enjoy. The urban setting but secluded grounds create an intimate and unique environment for holding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, and engagement parties.

Bama Bed and Breakfast can host up to 200 people in both indoor and outdoor covered and uncovered locations. Among the many ceremony sites available are under the trees on the lawn, in an atmospheric stone courtyard, or on the brick front steps. Inside, beautiful white columns, antique furniture, and a vintage fireplace with a mantle create a romantic ambience. For overnight accommodations, the venue provides five unique apartments, each of which has been outfitted to embody a different time period. The 1825’s Capstone Suite features accents that pay homage to the inn’s founding, while the 1860’s Tusk Suite will transport visitors to mid-19th-century Alabama. The 1900’s Crimson Suite is furnished with turn of the century decor, while the 1950’s Sweet Home Alabama is a tribute to Rock ‘n Roll. Finally, the Chimes 1940s Suite nods to Old Hollywood glamour the greats of the silver screen.

    The Campus location was absolutely perfect. Not only was the size able to accommodate my larger party, but the owners were lovely in every aspect. We can't wait for another reason to use the Bama Bed and Breakfast. Thank you for an awesome shower.

    Working with Kim, Kristina and the entire staff of the Bama Bed and Breakfast made wedding planning a breeze, especially considering that I planned ours without a coordinator, from multiple states away. They have very good suggestions as far as the planning process goes, they were always quick to respond to any questions that I had and were very flexible during the planning process. It took us an entire year to find the perfect venue and I am so thankful that we found the Bama B&B! It was also especially nice to have family that stayed their with us the night before the wedding. The grounds were beautiful, and since the venue is so scenic, not a lot of decor is needed. So, whether you're planning a destination wedding or are local, the Bama Bed and Breakfast is hands down the BEST venue in Tuscaloosa and surrounding areas.
