Wedding Day Pampering 101: The Wedding Suite!

It’s finally here: Your wedding day! All that planning is about to pay off with the wedding of your dreams. Now you’re ready for your day to start with stress-free pampering.

Your day is about to start that way, right?

Couples who choose The Gables at Chadds Ford know that their day will start with one-stop wedding prep, a toast and tempting nibbles. That’s because they’ll take advantage of our wedding suite, which is included with every wedding package. Our wedding suite is a charming spot nestled in a separate building next to the wedding terrace and the barn reception area. Let’s take a tour!

Inside, you’ll find two quaint rooms tastefully appointed in cheery pastels and love-inspired accents. One boasts a full-length mirror, plenty of space to hand (and photograph!) wedding attire and ample room for changing. The other affords comfy couches for relaxing and snacking, plus a great spot for hair and makeup. Of course, there’s also a private bathroom.

This on-premises ready room lets our brides and grooms do all the important pre-wedding primping just steps from the ceremony and reception areas. No running from the hairdresser to the makeup artist to somewhere else for photos and then to the wedding (which also may mean less time spent in the limo, too!). It not only saves time and money, but also cuts back on the stress of running around and worrying about being on time for everything.

You know what also cuts back on stress? Making sure your stomach isn’t empty (though we can’t account for butterflies!) before the ceremony. We provide complimentary cheese, fruit, crackers, sparkling and still water and a bottle of champagne. Your first toast is on us!

Like our beautifully landscaped property, the wedding suite is a photographer’s dream, and that means more memorable photos of your day. Your photographer will capture the day from the first dab of makeup to the escorted walk to the ceremony.

And while you may or may not want select guests to pop in before the ceremony, you have the option to welcome them into the wedding suite, since it’s adjacent to where you may choose to have the cocktail hour.

At The Gables, our event planners work hard for you from the very first meeting through the final wave goodbye. Our wedding suite is just another way we serve our wedding parties. Ready to learn more? Contact our events team at (610) 388-7700 or by email.

The Gables at Chadds Ford is nestled in the heart of the historic Brandywine Valley. Our combination of fresh seasonal cuisine, rustic yet elegant charm and enchanting outdoor dining will keep you coming back time and time again. The Gables is also the perfect venue to host your next special event, whether you are planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, baby shower or corporate event.
