– What would you say are the top 3 things couples should consider when looking for a venue? –

One of the top considerations is finding your wedding style. The choice of venue sets the tone for the entire wedding experience. Are you looking for a historic location, an outdoor location such as lush gardens or maybe a more rustic farm-feel? The couple should also visit the venue and have a list of questions about the things that are important to them to ensure the venue is the right fit for what they are looking for. Lastly, will the level of service be what the couple is looking for within the price-point they are willing to spend? Keep these key points in mind and you will find the perfect place for your special gathering.

– What do you think is the best thing about the array of options that you can potentially offer a couple? –

We have the ability to host just the wedding couple up to 125 of their closest family and friends, with the same level of hospitality and individuality. Through our partnerships with some of the best vendors on the Eastern Shore, we can work together to create the couples’ vision for their special day. From a welcome dinner on a river cruise to fireworks after the reception and anything in between

– Can you tell us an example of a problem that you solved for a wedding client? –

We had a recent wedding in which the wedding client was hands-off in the planning of the wedding and provided a general color scheme for her florals to the planner and florist. When florist arrived around 3 hours prior to the ceremony the bride realized she had not shared her deep affinity for a particular color. It was predominate in the arrangements, however, it’s the only color she wanted once viewing everything. The florist had some extra loose flowers, but not enough. Knowing the bride’s general color scheme our team had used these colors in the arrangements we always have at the Inn. Our Venue Coordinator quickly gathered up the Inn’s arrangements for the florist to pull from and together we recreated beautiful bouquets and arrangements that delighted the bride and made her day.

– What sorts of trends are you expecting to see in the 2024 wedding season? –

We find that couples are looking for more individualization that aligns with their personal values such as non-traditional settings and unique attire or themes and moving away from traditional elements. They are also prioritizing their guests’ enjoyment hosting smaller more welcoming experiences where there are interactive elements, experiential food stations, candid photography, thoughtful details and memorable moments. Inquiries for multi-day destination weddings are also on the rise as couples are planning extended celebrations and again the memorable experiences.

– What is the most important thing you would like couples to know about The Brampton Inn? –

Because we’re not just a venue but also a destination and retreat for our guests, our focus every day is on ensuring our couple and guests have the best experience possible. We think about the smallest details from the amenities in our guest rooms to the food offerings to being available for questions and assistance. Our focus is always on you and creating memorable experiences.
