About

The Met Philadelphia is a historic opera house and wedding venue located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Now renovated to the highest of standards, this venue can proudly provide a one-of-a-kind setting for weddings. Couples and their guests are welcome to rejoice at The Met and add to its prestigious history.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue has three spectacular event spaces that can be used throughout your entire day. At the beginning of your special day, your guests can arrive and mingle in the open-plan Met Lobby. The grand entrance of the lobby sets the tone of your day and allows guests to get acquainted before the ceremony. You and your loved one can exchange vows in the Grand Salle. This private space is complete with dome ceilings, pillars with golden details, and a bar area. Once you’ve tied the knot in this exclusive area, you and your family can raise a toast to new beginnings. Cocktail hours may also take place in the Grand Selle before making your way to the sublime Auditorium for a banquet followed by a night of celebrations. The Auditorium is the venue’s showpiece. This theater can remove the front orchestra seating for an open-plan reception. As you look around you will see the large stage, high ceilings, and the lavish red chairs that fill the remainder of the theatre. Depending on the layout of your reception, this event space can comfortably host up to 3,500 people.
