If you are looking for the perfect venue to host a luxury weekend of wedding festivities, look no further than The Williamsburg Inn. Centrally located in Colonial Williamsburg, the entire venue is steeped in history. It is an all-inclusive space with several locations to host the wedding of your dreams. The Inn is completely unique and one of a kind in the USA. It is the flagship of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and truly the ‘jewel in the crown’ of Colonial Williamsburg. As a five-star hotel, it boasts exemplary service and world class cuisine, attracting discerning clients from all over the world. The late Queen Elizabeth even stayed there twice. Can you imagine hosting your wedding at a place like this? Your guests would be pampered from the moment they arrived.
Your wedding weekend could start with a welcome party on The Social Terrace of The Williamsburg Inn. Your family and close friends could book their rooms in the Inn and enjoy a few rounds of golf before the rehearsal dinner. The morning of the wedding, they could take a tour of Colonial Williamsburg, within easy walking distance, and then get back with more than enough time to get ready for your gorgeous ceremony on The Queens Lawn. Your cocktail hour could follow on the terrace outside of the Regency Room. Then your guests could be ushered inside by a dapper uniformed fife and drum corp.
This is just ONE way that your weekend could unfold. There are more than a few options to choose from for your venue spaces. You could book a horse and carriage ride, or even have “Thomas Jefferson” give you a wedding toast! You could host a farewell brunch at Providence Hall House. The ideas are endless, and well suited to your unique and beautiful wedding vision.
As for you and you fiance, each couple that books the Recency Room for a wedding reception receives a complimentary one night stay in one of The Williamsburg Inn’s beautiful rooms. For your guests, there is the Inn, as well as five other hotels available for them to choose from at a variety of price points to cater to everyone’s needs. Couples are only allowed in-house catering, but believe me when I say that the food is exemplary. They will have you covered from cocktail hor d’oeuvres to your main courses. If you’re hosting your ceremony outside, you needn’t worry about bad weather- they have contingency plans in place as well as the set-up and break down crew to execute them.
The Williamsburg Inn is truly an amazing venue to host your wedding. I assure you that if you host your wedding here, you will not regret it. Your wedding will be the luxury event of the season, and your family and friends will be talking about it for years to come. What do you think?
