    Best Weekend

    Look no further when planning a weekend long wedding. I did so much research prior to finding the Tidewater Inn. My requirements were very specific. A hotel with a nice ballroom (no carpet). One wedding a night. A large enough hotel to host a majority of guests. No night minimum for guests; reasonably priced rooms. Between Maryland and NJ. After receiving the proposals of a number of venues on the Jersey Shore, I was concerned I would not find a place that could accommodate all my must haves. When I found the Tidewater Inn, only an hour from our home in DC, I thought it was too good to be true. We went to a Saturday open house and were sold. Only had to visit one venue! The purchase of the Tidewater House in 2019 makes this venue an all-in-one wedding venue. We stayed at the Tidewater House Wednesday - Sunday. Hosted our rehearsal dinner in the Carriage House. Thursday Night Welcome Reception in the Courtyard. Ladies got ready in the Tidewater House. Ceremony in the courtyard, Cocktail Hour in the Tent, Reception in the Gold Ballroom, and Saturday Breakfast in the Crystal Room. Venue deposit included a rockstar team. I was able to plan the wedding without hiring a wedding coordinator or a day of coordinator-- everything went so smoothly. Melanie Bennett is such a professional. Her team is exceptional. Sara is amazing to work with on hotel rooms (we were constantly shifting people). Brandi ensured the day went off without a hitch. The Tidewater House innkeeper, Crystal, ensured our accommodations were clean all weekend long. Sarah at the TWH made sure I was well nourished for the day. You know when the tasting is for 150+ that the food you are tasting will be the same day-of. Everyone raved about the food. Crab cakes at the rehearsal were the 'best we've ever had.' Passed Champagne at the ceremony, passed signature cocktails during cocktail hour. Cold seafood display, tater tot bar. Amazing filet and Chesapeake rockfish topped with crab. Late night snacks! We were also able to work with a local bakery on small desserts in addition to our cake. Not to mention everyone loved the town of Easton. Best weekend of our lives. We are so grateful for the entire staff at the Tidewater Inn. Wish we could host a wedding every year. Alas, we will settle for visiting the staff that became friends!

    Dream Wedding

    To sum it up - amazing. Melanie and her team were a joy to work with and extremely professional and communicative throughout the entire process. We truly enjoyed the wedding tasting which helped us envision the look-and-feel for our wedding, and of course, the ability to taste the AMAZING food (more on that later). The details meeting leading up to the big day was very helpful; Melanie and team laid everything out so my wife and I knew everything from coordinating vendors to timeline were handled.

    We went with the Tidewater Package so we had access to all spaces within the venue. The flow of the wedding was incredible and all of our guests were able to easily transition from ceremony -> cocktail hour -> reception by simply walking, including ramps for handicapped guests.

    The Gold Ballroom was used for the reception and is beautiful; the herringbone pattern for the wood floors are extremely classy. Back to the food - all of our guests were raving about it. It is truly incredible the consistency and flavors the kitchen could promptly pump out for 170+ guests. My wife wasn't able to eat much during the reception, and without us knowing, they boxed her meal and placed it within the fridge in our room...so awesome.

    Thank you Melanie & the Tidewater team for a fantastic weekend!

    The perfect venue!

    Thank you to everyone at the Tidewater Inn who made our wedding so special! From the very beginning, Melanie made us feel welcomed and valued. Throughout the entire planning process, Melanie and her team were communicative and helpful. Day of, I felt like people were literally coming out of the woodwork to help make sure our day ran smoothly! An entire team assembled before our eyes and kept everything on schedule and perfect. Our guests could not have been more impressed by everything and it was amazing to host our friends and family for the entire weekend at such a beautiful location. Thank you everyone for making our dream wedding a reality!
