Beautiful wedding venue!

I recently (4/29/2023) had my wedding at the Bethany Beach Ocean Suites (BBOS) and it was a dream come true! The team at BBOS really went out of their way to make sure everything went well for my special day. The team was very responsive to any questions I had and also made sure my guests were taken care of! Everything was set up exactly how I wanted it to look - from the ceremony on the beach, to the cocktail hour in the main lobby, and finally to the reception in the ballroom. Also, the venue is the perfect location in Bethany Beach - it is right on the boardwalk, so your guests will love it!

Thank you again, BBOS! Your team is incredible and my wedding day there will always be one I will remember!

Amazing Beach Wedding

My husband and I got married at Bethany Beach Ocean Suites over a year ago. It was everything I wanted and much more. It was a beautiful ceremony out on the beach and then we walked a few steps for the reception! The reception area was laid out great and I loved the coral linens that I was able to chose from that went with our theme! All of our guests loved our food and got so many compliments on the seafood tower! The food was such a big hit. I would like to thank Annalise for everything she did for my husband and I. It was everything I ever dreamed of! I highly recommend to have a beach wedding here!

My husband and I were the first wedding reception held at the new Bethany Beach Ocean Suites at Bethany Beach, DE. The facilities are gorgeous, the staff is friendly, and the event coordinators went above and beyond to make sure our reception was as perfect as possible and that we had everything we needed.
Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing the hotel is, and how amazing it was to be right on the beach. The rooms, views, and amenities are some of the best in the area.
Our guests are also still raving about the food at the reception. My husband and I went back to 99 Sea Level for a Valentine's Day dinner, it was one of the best dinners we've ever had.
All around perfect experience, we couldn't imagine having had our wedding reception anywhere else.

I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at 99 Sea Level at Bethany Beach Ocean Suites and it is a great venue with a great staff! It's definitely one of the nicest hotels in the area, fresh, modern, and ocean front. If you're looking for a venue in the Bethany Beach area, this is a great choice!
