Your Guide To Choosing Indoor Wedding Venues In Maryland
Small Wedding Venues
The first thing you have to decide is how big your wedding will be. If you want a smaller, more intimate affair there are many options you can choose from.
The first type of wedding venue is a hotel wedding. There are some beautiful hotels throughout the state that offer wedding venues for ceremonies and banquet halls for your wedding reception as well. Some of these gorgeous hotels are The Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City, The Graduate Annapolis, in Annapolis and The Liberty Mountain Resort in Baltimore.
If you are looking for an all-inclusive wedding venue, these hotels are a great option as they all offer in-house catering that can be included in the price you pay for the venue.
Another option for a smaller venue is a barn wedding. Are you craving a rustic type of vibe from your wedding? Then this might be the perfect venue for you!
Are you the hands-on type of bride or groom? Barn weddings often include many DIY projects, so get the hot glue gun out! This can be a great opportunity to ensure everything is exactly how you want it and it can create an opportunity for memories between you and your bridal party that you can take forever, and save some money while you’re at it! Some of the best places to host your barn wedding in Maryland are “The Wedding Niche” in Knoxville, “The Blackwell Barn and Lodge” in Gambrills and “Dulany’s Overlook” in Fredrick.
Large Wedding Venues
If you decide you want a bigger wedding party, with more friends and family then you need a space to accommodate that. One great way to feel fancy and special on your wedding day is to book a mansion or manor, and Maryland has many beautiful estates to choose from! From the Glenview mansion, in Rockville to the Cortland Mansion, in Hagerstown. You may be thinking that a mansion can’t be in your price range!
You might be surprised at how low some of these venues start at. The Cortland Mansion only costs $3,000 for an event. On average a couple usually pays about $5,000 to upwards of 11,000 for a venue. You can live a lavish lifestyle for an evening without breaking the bank!
Let’s turn it up a notch, maybe you not only want to live like the rich, maybe you want to be a princess too. Every princess needs her castle! Castles often offer a very private and secluded
atmosphere for you and your guests, while still accommodating a large number of people. The most notable castle wedding venue in Maryland is the Cloisters Castle in Lutherville-Timonium.
Unique Wedding Venues
Maybe you and your special someone want to stand out from the crowd and be different on your big day. No easier way to do that than with your wedding venue.
One great option for you out there is a museum wedding venue. There are many museums in Maryland that offer spaces specifically for weddings. Some of these museums include The Baltimore Museum of Industry, The American Visionary Art Museum, in Baltimore, and the Baltimore Museum of Art.
An added bonus of getting married in a museum is that when it comes time to take pictures you are guaranteed to have a gorgeous backdrop of literal works of art.
There are a couple of beautiful options in Maryland for library weddings, one of which being the George Peabody Library, in Baltimore.
This building has a lot of history to it, being opened in 1878 by John Hopkins University giving a regal atmosphere to your event. The library can also hold anywhere from 170-250 people so it is very accommodating to a larger wedding party. Another Baltimore library wedding venue is the Evergreen Museum and Library.
This venue can still hold 200 people so either choice could help your wedding stand apart from the crowd.
