We absolutely loved having our wedding at the Historic Post Office in Hampton! The staff is experienced in the event and wedding industry. They were very helpful during preparation for our wedding and offered lots of suggestions of different vendors and locations in the area. The day of our wedding, they helped make sure that everything was going well.
The actual venue is a blank slate that can be dressed up as much or as little as you deem necessary for your event. The black iron railings, dark wood floors, and white textured walls offer a lovely backdrop for any wedding. One of the major selling points for us were the bridal suite and grooms lounge. They are wonderful places to get ready before your event. The bridal suite has a TON of mirrors and outlets, The grooms lounge has a foosball table, slot machine, pool table, leather couch, and kitchenette.
My understanding is that options and offerings are changing rapidly but when we booked our wedding this is what was included in our rental price: 5 hour event, access to the venue starting at 9am, 1 hour rehearsal before the event, tables, and uplighting. Chaffari chairs located at the venue are actually owned by Waterford events so you have to rent them. They also recently got 2 bars that are available for rent. Because of the limited offerings, we had to rent linens, cups, plates, and silverware through a rental company.
We were a bit disappointed in what wasn't included for the rental price as all of the extra costs on top of the price for the venue put us a bit over budget. The minimal offerings make the venue maximally customizable for your wedding but isn't necessarily best for a bride who is on a budget or doesn't have lots of time to research vendors and rentals. Another monetary item to consider is that the HPO requires you to have a day-of coordinator which is another expense but was helpful the day of. One other minor complaint was that the wifi was spotty.

We booked the Historic Post Office for our wedding and we're so happy we did! With all of the renovations and updates, this venue is truly a gem. Kelsey is professional and great to work with - She helped keep us on top of what we needed to provide and communication was excellent! Our guests were in awe of how beautiful this venue is and we received nonstop compliments. Behind the scenes, they have a large bridal suite, large groom suite with a pool table, comfy seating, and great lighting. We were very comfortable there and were actually sad to leave after the wedding ended!

Beautiful location with plenty of event potential. Great for weddings, parties, or conferences. Great staff! Highly recommend!

We love working @ The Historic Post Office! There are so many possibilities within the space and the area nearby is great for photos. The time and attention to detail that went into the renovations is just amazing - you won't be disappointed!

The Historic Post Office is the perfect venue for large or small weddings (or any event, really!). The building is unique because it's historic and has a ton of character and charm, yet is also a blank canvas so it can host many different styles. It is hard to find a really beautiful, flexible indoor space for a large wedding, but this place is perfect! The upstairs and downstairs is a really neat aspect as well that you can't find anywhere else. Kelsey and her team are really dedicated to making sure everything is perfect for their events, and they are also willing to go outside of the box with new ideas. We highly recommend The Historic Post Office to brides, businesses, or anyone looking to host in a neat location with a wonderful support staff.
