The City of Brotherly Love is an amazing city that offers a breathtaking backdrop for weddings. Whether you live in Philadelphia or you’re planning a destination wedding, there are plenty of unique and beautiful venue options to select. Your venue choice will surely make for a memorable wedding that you can treasure for a lifetime. Each of these venues offers top-notch service, stunning views, and pricing packages that are sure to meet every budget and style.


Weddings in Philadelphia

Huffington Post once labeled Philadelphia as the most underrated city in the USA. And they aren’t wrong. In fact, when it comes to weddings, they are spot on.

Why should you choose Philly as your wedding destination when New York is right around the corner?

First of all, Philadelphia has better doughnuts, and secondly, they offer wedding venues that are just as incredible while also being cheaper.


Philly’s venue types

Resting on the Delaware River, Philadelphia boasts gorgeous riverfront venues with stunning views. Sure, the ocean can be pretty, but there is something to the raw beauty of a river.

If you prefer the winding streets and the urban landscape, then the city’s hidden gems, like a train station venue, are perfect for you. Philly also offers several historic locations, where nature blends with manmade and results in wedding venues that have both a rich background and stoic beauty.


Venues and fees

We’ve picked our top venues from the three of Philly’s favorite types.

Glen Foerd on the Delaware is a historic pavilion that sits right up the river. With room for up to 300 guests and customizable décor, this location is perfect for both nature lovers and history buffs. You’ll have at your disposal the entire mansion, with its art gallery and a terrace, along with the outside pavilion. They also boast a Winter Wedding option for that breath-taking snow-filled backdrop. To enquire about pricing, send them an email through their website.

And if you’d enjoy a trendy urban setting more, then Platform Thirty at Beat Street Station is the venue for you. Of course, this train station is a historic landmark (isn’t everything in Philly?). But it is also a truly romantic place for your special day. They offer several wedding packages, and the price is $150 per person for a Saturday. You can ask them for a quote, as it may differ depending on your needs.

Ridgeland Mansion is a federal-style building built in 1719, filled with history and calm, long-lasting beauty. It sits on 5 acres of land along with an incredible tent that can accommodate up to 300 of your guests. And while the mansion itself isn’t available, it is still a gorgeous backdrop for your perfect wedding. This venue is for true romantics, as it will leave you feeling warm and loved. The pricing depends on the number of guests and other services you might need, but the starting fee is $3000.


It’s (almost) always sunny in Philadelphia

We’ve already mentioned that Philadelphia can have gorgeous winters for those who love snow. And for you, the period between January and February is the perfect time to get married. That is when the snowfall is at its highest probability, with temperatures averaging at 33°F, according to Weather Spark.

And if you want the sunny side of Philly, then the best months for your wedding are June and September. Their shared average temperature is a pleasant 78°F. For those who want to avoid a higher chance of rain, September is a better option.


Guest Accommodation

In the heart of Philly, a 4-star hotel awaits your out-of-town guests. Sofitel Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square has a near-perfect score and rooms that start at $132, according to A great place for a good night’s rest and a chance to see the inner city.

For a tighter budget, consider Holiday Inn Express Philadelphia, with rooms starting from $115, according to their website. It is further away from the city, but it’s perfect if you’ve chosen Glen Foerd for your venue.

And, if neither of these work for you, Airbnb has some amazing offers, and depending on the size of your group, room prices average at around $90 per person. Plus, for those picky guests, this may be the best option.
