On WeddingWire since 2018

We still have 2022 Early Spring and Late Fall dates available! Virtual Facetime Tours offered to those who can't travel!

Brand new 2,200 sq foot waterfront ballroom with gorgeous oak floors and picturesque windows overlooking the water.

The Wylder Hotel is a lush waterside wedding venue and hotel located in Tilghman, Maryland. With over nine acres of beautiful gardens, 54 rooms, waterfront ceremony space, multiple event spaces, and waterfront property, it's clear to see why The Wylder Hotel is the area's premier wedding venue. The Wylder Hotel is located on a three-mile stretch of land in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay and is a gorgeous re-creation of the original boarding house located on the island back in 1898.


Facilities & Capacity
Guests have the opportunity to rent the entire venue, giving them free reign over the breathtaking waterfront property. The Wylder offers plenty of opportunities to celebrate your entire wedding weekend in one place. From your rehearsal dinner, welcome drinks reception, waterfront ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour, multiple indoor and outdoor reception spaces, late night on-site bar, to Sunday Brunch. Your Wedding guests never have to touch their car keys and get to enjoy Wylder’s salt water pool, watersports, docks, over-water crab shack restaurant and bonfire pits! The Wylder Hotel also offers plenty of water activities in The Marina that overlooks the Chesapeake Bay. With enough space to fit anywhere from 25-250 of your friends and family, you can enjoy the wedding weekend of your dreams.


Services Offered
The Wylder Hotel offers couples space to celebrate their bridal shower, elopement, reception, ceremony, engagement party, and rehearsal dinner. For events, the venue provides equipment like dance floors, lighting, tent accessories, chairs, furniture, tables, tents, and audio equipment. If you’re wondering how you cater an island wedding ceremony, don’t worry — The Wylder provides delectable servings from The Bar Mumbo and Tickler’s Crab Shack and Restaurant. Both of these restaurants can provide ceremonies and events with barware, flatware, linens, china, and glassware, as well as a full bar and bartenders. Other services offered include:

Accommodations
The Wylder Hotel provides guests with several options for their overnight stay. With 54 hotel rooms and 12 different room types the options are endless! The bungalows are a favorite of wedding parties as it can fit the entire bridal party in one building with a communal deck off the front where couples often enjoy mimosas in the morning and host a relaxed after party hang session at night.

Wondering what makes Wylder special? We think it is the best wedding venue on the Eastern Shore for many reasons but here are a few:

- You can host your entire wedding weekend here from rehearsal dinner to ceremony and reception to Sunday brunch!

- No need for a shuttle or other hotel room blocks. We have 50 hotel rooms on site, so all your family and friends can stay here with you for a fun filled wedding weekend!

- How does a corn hole or bocce ball tournament sound to you... what about a pool party or afternoon sail on the Bay? We have lawn games, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, bikes, a heated saltwater pool and a fleet of charter boats all waiting for you and your guests to utilize and have fun!

- Full customization: We can fully customize the menu to suit your needs and our venue spaces are all blank canvases just waiting for you to express your creativity and all things Pinterest!!!

- A waterfront ceremony space for everyone and multiple venues for your reception. We have 3 options all on our 9.5 acres.

  1. Inside waterfront event room space that can fit up to 135 people, a dance floor, outdoor cocktail hour and a real bar for your guests to hang at!
  2. Tent on our waterfront lawn. We can fit up to 250 guests on our spacious lawn and host your entire wedding reception and ceremony outside!!
  3. Our over-water crab shack is super casual and features our Eastern shore classic style. Host your reception outside without having to rent a tent for 80 people or add the inside restaurant space to fit 175 with some inside and some out and a dance floor in between!!!

- Finally onside coordination and custom wedding packages. Every wedding receives a day of coordinator to help ease your stress! We also can work with your budget, payment plans and needs with many 2020 and 2021 dates still available in every season! Let us know your budget, wants, wishes and needs and we will let you know how we can make your dream come true!!!

Please let us know if you have ANY questions at all and we would LOVE for you to come for a tour soon!! Our property really shines its best in person and who wouldn't want to come hang out on the water for the day and enjoy a cocktail by the bonfire pit?!?!

Best Wedding Ever

We got married at Wylder in the summer of 2022. There are not enough words to express how perfect our wedding was, every single detail was perfect. The staff at Wylder was so incredible, Alyssa is the event coordinator and she is SO incredible to work with, she has become our friend after all the work with did with her. She is attentive to every detail and makes sure your day is exactly the way you dreamed it to be. All of our guests raved at how beautiful the venue was, which of course we already knew, but seeing it again through our guests eyes was magical. The food is incredible, from appetizers to entrees, everything was delicious! You really couldn't ask for a more perfect venue, the setting, surroundings, staff, amenities, accommodations, and all the little things in between are all perfection!

You Must Check This Venue Out!

There used to be a way for other pros to "Endorse" each other on WeddingWire...However, as that button in longer accessible... I wanted to at the very least leave a few kind words here.

What a very special location! After working in the wedding industry for over 30 years and performing for well over 3,000 weddings…I can tell you that there is no place else quite like the Wylder. Our team members perform there regularly and it’s ALWAYS outstanding.

If you are especially searching for a waterfront backdrop…your pictures are going to be extraordinary here. There are so many perfect places for amazing pics on this property, as it’s so well maintained. There are a few cute little nooks here and there on property for romantic pics of just the two of you…but also some much larger areas that will look incredible for shots with your entire wedding party. The team members take a ton of pride in the look of the Wylder and it always shows indoors and out.

The team members that I am referring to are all around great folks, from the coordinators to the wait staff, bartenders, kitchen staff and everything in between. On our end It always feels like we are working with family friends…and I’m certain that your guests will feel this way also. They are always smiling and always eager to please. While many employees at other businesses “just go through the motions”….this crew makes you feel like you are their top priority. The wedding industry in general has a huge turn over in staffing on a regular basis…not at the Wylder. It’s always the same smiling faces who know what they are doing and how to help guests have an incredible time. The tenure of the teams members speaks volumes.

Additionally, I wanted to mention The food…but it almost speaks for itself. Folks literally come from all over the area to eat at this venue during the week. This is not a part time catering facility for weekends only…the Wylder has a full kitchen crew running daily for guests staying on property and locals who stop in regularly for meals. Huge menu, always hot, always fresh and always delicious. You will not be disappointed.

To be fair….Tilghman Island is a little off the beaten path…which to most… is part of the charm. You feel like you are truly someplace special. That being said…. One of the absolute best parts about the Wylder is that you and your guests can stay on property. Many wedding guests have shared that the accommodations are fantastic. In fact, most of the weddings that we perform here have guests that are staying on property and tell us how nice their stay has been. Though the property has been renovated and has all the modern updates and amenities….it still has that character and charm like a location in one of those Hallmark Movies that takes place in a historic town. 

The Wylder has such a great reputation in the Wedding Industry and in the community as well. Be sure to check them out. You will be happy that you did.

Most Perfect Wedding Weekend

We couldn't have asked for anything more for our wedding weekend. The Wylder was the perfect destination for us and all of our guests. The team is incredible. The coordinator Alyssa was exceptional and willing to take as much as we needed off our plate for planning and execution. Every single guest at our wedding told us how much they enjoyed being in this location and that the Wylder staff went above and beyond. We will be spending MANY more memories there and we cannot wait!

Hello!

Being born & raised on the Eastern Shore, I truly believe there is something magical about waterfront weddings! I have been working on weddings for 7 years, starting as an assistant planner in 2016. Since then, I have handled almost every aspect of weddings, from the formal venue perspective and as a freelance planner. I am familiar with military weddings, outdoor weddings, ballroom weddings, and very intimate weddings! I orginially planned on starting my own planning business, however Wylder stole my heart. I love coming to such a beautiful place every day and every wedding I see on our property makes me fall in love with it all over again!

I am so happy you are considering Wylder as a Wedding venue option!! I would LOVE to host your wedding at our beautiful waterfront property on the Eastern Shore. I really think we have something unique and special to offer, and I love how personal and customizable we get to be for our clients. I love getting to know our couples and being a part of such an important day!
