    Amazing venue, perfect for an intimate wedding

    My husband and I had our marriage celebration at the Tabard Inn in December, one year after we eloped (our families live in different countries, and it was important for us to bring everyone together to meet and celebrate with us). It was a perfect night for us and 50 of our closest friends and families, and exceeded our expectations in every way.

    We had a completely DIY wedding, without a wedding planner, but this is so doable at the Tabard, because they provide almost everything, and the rooms are so colorful and gorgeous that all we did was buy some roses (from Costco) and the beautiful setting did the rest of the work. Daniel worked with us to put together a perfect evening that was better than we ever imagined. Tabard is a special venue because it's affordable yet so charming, elegant, and unique. The food is amazing; Daniel put together a tasting for us and two friends, and we were blown away by the options. We went with a plated dinner with lamb or fish, and convinced all the couples to go half and half so that everyone could try both dishes. Dessert was a chocolate orange cake, and the chef surprised us with a beautiful cake for my husband and me to split so we could have a cake cutting ceremony.

    We had 50 guests, and the combination of rooms 24 and 26 was perfect. We had cocktail hours, a ring exchange, and dancing in the smaller room, and then dinner was in the larger room. I'm uploading pictures so you can see how we did the layout. The Tabard provides all the linens, tables, chairs, and candles. And the best thing is, the value is amazing! As long as you meet the food and beverage minimum, the venue itself and all the rest is free!

    Our guests loved staying there, as all the rooms are unique and colorful, and the breakfast in the restaurant is great. The Tabard is the opposite of a corporate hotel, with lots of tucked away rooms and hallways. So guests with disabilities or who couldn't handle lots of winding stairs (there are no elevators at the Tabard) stayed at the Kimpton next door, which was super convenient. One thing to be aware of is that the lighting can be tricky for photographers, so have your person check out the venue in advance, or go with one of the Tabard's recommended photographers or someone who's worked there before. Also, since it's an active hotel, things need to end by around 11PM, but our guests all relocated to the downstairs lounge and hung out there until the bar closed.

    We truly can't say enough good things about the Tabard (I had said more but the Wedding Wire website lost the text of my review!). It was also the place we stayed the night we eloped, so it is going to remain a very special place for my husband and me. Our guests all raved about it, and we are so grateful to Daniel and the rest of the Tabard team.

    The Tabard is truly an amazing gem right in the heart of DC, allowing you to have an intimate wedding in a unique venue with amazing food for an unbeatable value. The best!

    I worked with Angela Butler to plan a bridal shower for 18 people. Everything was so smooth, from beginning to end, and Angela was a pleasure to work with and made herself available whenever I wanted to stop by in person, or ask questions via email or telephone. The venue itself is beautiful - we were set up in Room 26 - and the staff throughout our party were so accommodating and kind, and went out of their way to give us what we asked for all throughout. The food was delicious, the drinks were a heavy pour, and we were able to bring in our own flowers and music/speaker.

    All in all, I really couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was perfect and well-organized. The bride loved the party, as did all of the guests!
