Hotel DuPont is a historic wedding venue in Wilmington, Delaware, that caters to couples from the Tri-State area. This exquisite hotel, which opened in 1913, portrays the beauty and elegance of the Gilded Age. For both their ceremony and reception, couples can choose from various indoor ballrooms. The skilled personnel at the Hotel DuPont will guarantee that your special day is all you imagined.
This vintage-style location can accommodate up to 300 guests. The du Barry Room is suitable for individuals looking for a romantic getaway. White pillars, parquet floors, exquisite sconces, and a big crystal chandelier from the former Yugoslavia grace this popular Federal-style venue. The Gold Ballroom is an excellent choice for couples planning a spectacular event. Gilded rosettes, gleaming chandeliers, and bas-reliefs of legendary women such as Helen of Troy and Cleopatra adorn this stunning French Neoclassic chamber.
I love the history of this hotel, it's décor and its grand ballroom. Presidents, and world leaders have stayed here. It reminds me of Paris or a room at Versailles....elegant and timeless! There are locations in and around the hotel that will work well for photos as well as some scenic parks and gardens that are within a 10 minute drive. Take some time to research the area as this part of northern Delaware has plenty to offer. And if you can create enough space in your wedding day timeline, the beauty of Longwood Gardens is only 25 minutes from the venue!
