Best Venue at the Jersey Shore
We were BLOWN AWAY!!! The Flanders went above and beyond every expectation we ever had. My husband and I could not have been happier with our winter wedding. Karen and her staff are amazing. They are so easy to work with and were such a big help throughout the entire planning process. I was so worried about Ocean City being a dry town and was under the impression that getting the alcohol would be difficult. I couldn't have been more wrong. The Flanders put us in touch with Circle Liquors and we were able to serve every single beverage we wanted at our wedding. It even ended up being cheaper for us to do it this way. Circle Liquors delivered to the Flanders and picked up. We did not have to do anything other than decide what we wanted and give our guest count. Guests raved about the food for days. The space was decorated beautifully. They had two huge, real, flock Christmas trees. The Flanders put us in touch with our amazing photographer. The suites in the hotel are amazing. Having everything in one location made it so easy and enjoyable for our guests. I could go on and on. Our day could not have been more perfect. Choosing the Flanders was the best decision we made.Sent on 02/24/2021

Luxurious and Affordable-The Flanders has it all!
We could not be happier with our wedding at the Flanders. As healthcare professionals fighting COVID-19, we just wanted to have a wedding as close as what we imagined as possible, but with all the safety protocols required to protect our elderly guests. While we downsized from 150 to 35 guests, The Flanders made every accommodation they could to make sure everyone felt safe and we had the wedding we envisioned. Karen was the wedding planner we never knew we needed! The Flanders was affordable, flexible and luxurious. They make sure you have the wedding you deserve. From Karen, Joanne and John at the Flanders, not only did we have an unforgettable experience, but also felt safe celebrating with our guests. We cannot stop raving about how much fun we had and look forward to planning our next event at the Flanders!Sent on 09/19/2020

Flanders Micro- Wedding
The Flanders Hotel did an excellent job working with us and hosting our wedding during the 2020 COVID Pandemic. We were forced to change our wedding date twice because of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19. Furthermore, the state of New Jersey implemented a ban on indoor dining which meant that our event had to take place entirely outside. Karen Bergman at the Flanders Hotel did an incredible job working with us and her team at the hotel to ensure we had a beautiful outdoor wedding venue by the pool. While our wedding was not what we planned, it ended up being better than we could have ever imagined because Karen and the Flanders did such a good job walking us through every step of the way. I would strongly encourage every couple looking for the perfect New Jersey beach wedding to explore what the Flanders has to offer.Sent on 08/13/2020
An excellent venue. Always a pleasure working with Karen and her staff. You are in good hands at the Flanders. Get ready for the wedding of your dreams.
The Flanders is one of our favorite venues to photograph weddings. The ballroom is the most elegant and sophisticated reception locations at the Jersey shore.
