    A+++ from start to finish - Best Wedding EVER

    The Tidewater Inn was hands down the first, easiest, and best decision we made during our wedding planning process. It is a gorgeous, charming, historic inn in the center of downtown Easton. I loved that the second our guests parked their cars - they could walk everywhere. No need for the hassle of buses and transportation that takes time away from the actual event! All of our guests stayed there, our ceremony was there, the cocktail hour, and the reception. We also had our rehearsal dinner at Scossa which is a 3 minute walk away, our welcome drinks were next door at Washington Street Pub and our after party next door to that at Doc's. The walkability made our guests feel like they could relax and really enjoy what a charming town Easton is. Now to the Tidewater specifically - Melanie is FABULOUS. She is so nice and so ON it when it came to everything about our wedding. The entire team is so professional and you can tell they really care about your wedding and also do a lot of them and know what they're doing. We had so many of our guests tell us it was the best wedding they've ever been too and their top highlights were how beautiful the venue was and how DELICIOUS the food and drinks were. You could literally cut the filet mignon with a spoon and the crabcakes on top were the best on the Eastern Shore. Not to mention my absolute favorite part of the entire process was the day they invite you to to taste all of their appetizers, dinners, desserts, and drinks. I honestly wish I could do that day all over again. Melanie was there when small emergencies happened day-of like the bustle of my dress breaking and was on it to help fix it right away! I would highly highly highly recommend the Tidewater Inn to any bride looking for the PERFECT Eastern Shore wedding that makes all logistics easy. Thank you guys so much for everything! We can't wait to come back for a fun weekend at the Tidewater!

    Venue of our Dreams

    Choosing the Tidewater was the best decision we made for our wedding. I can’t recommend the Tidewater enough! From our first visit to the Tidewater, I knew it was going to be a special place, but I could have never expected how perfect our wedding would turn out- all thanks to the Tidewater staff. Melanie, the wedding coordinator, is hands down AMAZING. She was incredibly quick at responding to emails, was so helpful at walking us through every detail of the day to make it exactly as we wanted it and helped us organize everything and everyone. Sara was also incredible. She handled last minute issues like a pro (like how the guys suddenly needed 20 burgers for lunch on our wedding day) and always made us feel like a priority. Brandy was so helpful with creating our seating chart and envisioning our wedding layout. She was so accommodating to our guests who had certain food allergies and wanted to make sure they enjoyed their meals. On our wedding day, each member of the wedding team worked so hard to make sure everything went incredibly smooth and according to plan. They worked behind the scenes to clean up the entire event, bring our cards to our room, and box up all our decorations and flowers. As I look back at wedding pictures, I realize that they even repurposed some of our decorations from the cocktail hour space to the reception space. It goes to show how many little details they took care of that I never noticed or thought about. They made sure the flowers showed up, the cupcakes were delivered and the band was set up as they needed to be. Each member of the wedding team was flat out UNBELIEVABLE! Even down to the bell hops and the kitchen staff, every worker was so kind and did everything they could to make us feel special. Even more than the staff, our guests raved about the food and said the food was “the best wedding food they’ve ever had!”
    One of our favorite aspects of having our wedding at the Tidewater was that almost everyone was able to stay in the hotel. No need to coordinate buses to get everyone around town, everything you need is right there!
    We truly appreciate everything the Tidewater did to make our wedding so perfect.
