Baltimore is one of the United States oldest cities and has played a pivotal part in much of America's history. It's also a cultural hub for many artists and musicians, but did you know Baltimore has tons of beautiful wedding venues? For couples looking to get hitched in Charm City, here are a few things to think about before booking your Baltimore wedding venue.
As a port city turned metropolitan area, Baltimore and the surrounding cities have tons of popular wedding venues that include: historic sites, hotels, museums, golf courses and country clubs. There really is something for everyone.
If you and your fiancé(e) have fallen in love with the history of Baltimore, consider historic sites, manors/estates, or historic inns for your wedding location. Many of these wedding venues have multiple ceremony and reception spaces that are both indoor and outdoor. These are great wedding venues all year long and the stunning classic architecture will certainly wow your guests. Golf courses and country clubs, more modern wedding venues, also tend to have multiple wedding spaces.
Hotels are excellent wedding locations if you and your fiancé(e) are hosting a number of out-of-town guests. They also offer a blank space on which you can turn your wedding vision into a reality.
Some unique ceremony and reception venues include museums, zoos, and an aquarium. While museums, aquariums, and zoos might not be the first thing that comes to mind when talking about wedding venues, they have the ability to entertain guests in a way many wedding venues can't.
If you're a water lover, consider a cruise ship or the Chesapeake Bay for your wedding venue. Take your guests out into the Inner Harbor or get your toes in the sand, either way you're guests will love it.
For pricing, the average cost of a wedding in Baltimore is around $33,200 which is $4,000 above the national average. If you're spending more or less on a Baltimore wedding, don't fret. These numbers are just the averages and your wedding is going to be one of a kind!
For out-of-town wedding guests, there are a few ways to get to Baltimore wedding venues. Guests that are driving to wedding locations in the city or surrounding areas, Interstate 95 stretches from Florida to Maine and cuts through Baltimore. Just make sure your wedding venue has ample parking for guests. You should also inform guests ahead of time if they will have to pay for parking for ceremony and reception venues in the city. If driving is not an option for some guests, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) is a 25 minute drive to venues located in Downtown Baltimore.
Out-of-town guests will also need hotel accommodations if they are staying for the weekend of your wedding. The average price for a night in Baltimore is about $122. We know finding enough hotel rooms for out of town guests can be hard, we suggest this fantastic wedding hotel block service. They will do all the hard work of finding rooms near your wedding venue that you can afford. All you need to do is pick which hotel works best for you and send the information to your guests.
In typical east coast style, Baltimore experiences all four seasons. Sometimes every type of weather can be experienced in one day. Located at the mouth of the Patapsco River, Baltimore's warm humid temperate climate has hot summers and cold winters with no dry season.
Considering booking a wedding venue in the summer? The warm season lasts from the end of May to the middle of September with daily high temperatures over 78 degrees and the hottest days will be experienced in the middle of July. Baltimore summers are as hot as they are humid. So if you're looking into an outdoor wedding venue during the summer months, make sure there is a way for guests to stay cool and hydrated. Misting tents and fans are fabulous options to keep your guests happy. You and your fiancé(e) should also consider a backup wedding location at your venue in the case of summer showers and thunderstorms (most likely between mid June and mid August).
If you're hoping to avoid rain altogether, try booking a wedding venue in the middle of September.
The cold season in Baltimore lasts from the beginning of December to the beginning of March with the daily high below 50 degrees. The coldest days can be expected around the middle to end of January. While booking an outdoor wedding venue in the winter is unlikely, wedding portraits can still be done outside. You can even have an tented area with heaters if that's your ideal ceremony location. Just make sure guests are prepared to bundle up for the weather. Snow can be expected between the end of November and the end of March. Discuss your wedding venue's policy on inclement weather ahead of time.
