    Better than you can imagine

    The Bellevue is the absolute pinnacle venue for a wedding. Recently renovated, the Ballroom is in pristine condition. The size is grand, the detail is beautiful, and the atmosphere exudes elegance. I truly believe there is no other venue in Philadelphia that can offer the same level of food (taste and presentation), service, staff professionalism and friendliness, and grandeur. Something that was very important to us was cleanliness, as well as executing a seamless event - both of which were exceeded beyond measure. Additionally, there was never a time that a request was not met. The hotel coordinators, wedding event planners, and banquet captain worked with us to have sparklers on stage, bring in multiple outside vendors, alter lighting within the room, and personalize every aspect of the wedding weekend that we could. My husband and I were never met with a "no"! Finally, I must comment on the fact that EVERYTHING can be held at this venue - arrival dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party at XIX, departure brunch - you name it! We had our ceremony at a church, but everything else was at The Bellevue. Whether guests stay at the hotel or not, it makes for a weekend easy for EVERYONE! After viewing at least 25 venues in the city of Philadelphia, I can confidently state that The Bellevue is the only venue where this is possible. With all of this said, for anyone looking for wedding venues, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Whether you are having a 50 person wedding or 300, this is the spot. It will exceed all expectations, and live in your memory forever as one of your best choices to date. **Make sure you request Lisa McGraw. She is an incredible human and the backbone of weddings at The Bellevue!

    My husband and I recently had our wedding in the Grand Ballroom at the Bellevue. There are not enough positive words to say about our experience from start to finish –it was superb. Lisa was our event coordinator whom is fantastic, her level of professionalism, thoughtfulness and dedication are unsurpassed. The entire planning process is top notch, making us feel extremely special ie: your tasting is exclusive and held in their wine room with your own personal staff- making you feel as if you are royalty. The attention to detail continued up to the day of our wedding. Our actual day was a dream come true and perfect! The food is amazing and plentiful, the staff is top notch (many of our guests are still raving about the amazing service) and the ballroom looked radiant and not crowded even with almost 300 guests. The day could not have gone any better and we know it is driven by Lisa and her team at the Bellevue. We highly recommend having your wedding at the Bellevue if you want the best you can get!
