Wedding Venues in Wilmington

There are tons of beautiful Wilmington wedding venues to choose from that will complement your nuptials. Choose something alongside the waterfront by selecting a restaurant or hotel near the river. There are also a variety of gardens and arboretums that capture the beautiful outdoor essence of the area.

Additionally, you can browse through art centers, banquet halls, country clubs or even historic homes in the city for your Big Day. Many weddings in Wilmington cost an average of $30,000. Typically, your venue selection accounts for roughly 30 to 50 percent of your total wedding budget. Select a venue that not only speaks to you and your partner's style, but is within your price range.

Travel and Accommodations in Wilmington

The Wilmington International Airport is roughly five miles northeast from downtown Wilmington, making it the most convenient option for those guests flying into town. Upon arrival, you and your wedding guests can retreat to one of the many comfortable hotels in the area. On average, a night's stay in a Wilmington hotel costs around $180.

For convenience's sake, book a hotel block that your guests can utilize. Booking numerous rooms at once is a thoughtful and efficient way to ensure your friends and family have somewhere to stay.

Alternatively, if your guests are looking for another nearby destination to stay or take a day trip to, recommend Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. The seaside city is 74 miles south of Wilmington and offers lots of accommodations as well.
