Wilmington Wedding Venues: Your Wedding Venue Planning Guide for Wilmington, DE and Beyond

Do you dream of saying "I do" in picturesque New England? If so, choose Wilmington, Delaware, as the destination for your wedding. Full of contemporary attractions and historic sights, the Wilmington is the ideal place to tie the knot.

Wedding Venues in Wilmington

When you begin looking for Wilmington wedding venues, you and your partner will be delighted by the amount of options you have. There are darling libraries and museums available for the cultured engaged couple. Hotels, historic homes and country clubs abound for those pairs who like to keep it classic, and numerous indoor and outdoor venues that overlook the city's prized rivers, the Christina and the Delaware, for those who love natural beauty.

You should know that weddings in New England are more expensive than in other parts of the country. On average, couples in Delaware spend close to $45,000 for their wedding day. Weigh the pros and cons of getting an expensive venue with your fiancé(e) and discuss what's most important to you. A wedding venue usually accounts for 50 percent of your overall wedding spending, so you need to make sure both you and your partner are in agreement.

Travel and Accommodation in Wilmington

Five miles south of Wilmington is the Wilmington Airport. However, the airport is quite small and its services can be irregular. For a wider variety of flight options for your wedding guests arriving from afar, advise guests to fly into the Philadelphia International Airport in Pennsylvania and traverse the 21 miles southwest to Wilmington.

When you send out wedding invitations or build a wedding website, it's customary to recommend a hotel for guests to consider. On average, hotels in Wilmington run anywhere from $150 to $200 a night. If possible, reserve a hotel block and encourage your friends and family to stay in one of the aforementioned blocked rooms.

Additionally, guests looking for a wider variety of accommodations can consider staying in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 32 miles northeast of Wilmington. Philadelphia takes about an hour to reach by car, if there's no traffic, and is a larger city with more hotel and wedding venue options.

Weather Forecast in Wilmington

Whether you're getting married inside or contemplating reserving an outdoor wedding venue in Wilmington, it helps to know what to expect from the weather. Delaware does experience all four seasons. Not many couples wed in Wilmington during the winter, as the city experiences quite a bit of snowfall and cold temperatures. Temperatures begin to rise in spring although the weather can be tricky to predict. Springtime in Wilmington includes cold, wet days as well as humid, sunny ones. Summer, on the other hand, is typically warm and wet throughout the season. Accommodate your guests by providing umbrellas and shade at outdoor venues and air conditioning indoors. Fall is probably the most popular time of the year to wed in Wilmington, as the city is transformed into an autumnal wonderland complete with colorful leaves and caramel apples.

Planning a wedding can be a time-consuming process, but with the organizational tools available here on WeddingWire, it can be a bit simpler. Take advantage of the planning tools we have online so you can take some of the stress out of planning for your Big Day, and get back to the important things - like writing your vows.
