Memorial Chapel Weddings



An Overview

Welcome to the Memorial Chapel!

Whether you are planning a large celebration or intimate affair, we are thrilled that you are considering Memorial Chapel for the location of your wedding. Anyone can be married at Memorial Chapel regardless of their affiliation to the University and cultural or faith background. Ceremonies of all sizes and traditions are welcome and can be accommodated in the majestic Main Chapel or quaint Garden Chapel. Our experienced and dedicated staff handles more than 100 weddings a year and is available to assist you every step of the way from your initial reservation to "I Do."


Weddings are held at Memorial Chapel on Saturdays and Sundays in both the Main and Garden Chapels in alternating time blocks so that no two ceremonies take place simultaneously. There are some weekends, however, that weddings cannot be accommodated due to University of Maryland functions and holidays.


A wedding reservation at Memorial Chapel includes:



· 2 hours and 45 minutes in the Chapel on your wedding day (2 hours and 30 minutes in the Garden Chapel)

· A 90-minute rehearsal on the Thursday or Friday evening before your wedding

· The services of a Chapel Event Manager at your rehearsal and wedding

· The use of Chapel sound system, musical instruments, furnishings and altar pieces during your ceremony

· Two dressing/prep rooms for Main Chapel reservations or one dressing/prep room for Garden Chapel reservations on your wedding day



We are a wedding site only. The West Chapel will seat 90 or less and the Main Chapel will seat 1100.

We look forward to your call! Read less

The Memorial Chapel at UMCP was a great option for us since we are both alumni of the school :) Pictures came out great, our day-of coordinator was super helpful and accommodating. The staff were also very responsive throughout the planning process via email and they answered all our questions! Great acoustics if you're looking to have live music too!!

Having our ceremony at the UMD Memorial Chapel was lovely. The inside of the Chapel is beautiful! From our initial tour to email correspondence, we knew this was a special venue to hold our ceremony. The staff is extremely helpful, timely, and professional. My husband and I were very pleased!

My husband and I are both UMD alumni, so the Memorial Chapel was the perfect venue for our non-religious wedding ceremony. The Chapel staff were all wonderful and quickly responded to e-mails. The only complaint I have is that the time slots are quite short, especially for the money spent, and there is zero flexibility for adjusting your time window since this is a popular venue. The wedding party for the previous wedding was also still taking photos in front of the Chapel at the beginning of our time slot.

I was so happy to have the chapel as my wedding venue. The inside was gorgeous! The long isle was stunning and made for such a dramatic entrance. :) We were assigned a coordinator for our rehearsal and wedding; she was great. She asked all the right questions and made it so the chapel was set up to fit our personal wedding. It really helped A LOT to have her there!

Memorial Chapel is an absolutely beautiful venue, especially if the University of Maryland is a special place to you. Both my husband and and I went there, so when we got engaged, the Chapel was really the only venue we considered. It is beautiful, the staff are courteous and responsive. There are two reasons my rating is as low as it is. One, the chapel is relatively expensive (due to high demand I assume?). Second, they have quite a few, relatively strict rules. You have a very limited time in the chapel, you can only take pictures in certain places, they are very strict on the type of decorations you can bring into the chapel. All of the rules make sense (they are trying to protect their space), but if you are looking for a specific look or for creative decorations (especially ones that include a lot of flowers), you may want to look elsewhere. As for me and my husband, the chapel was absolutely perfect, the photos are beautiful and we we have zero regrets!

The Memorial Chapel was a symbolic location to hold our wedding, as we met at the University of Maryland as students. All of the staff was tremendous to work with and always tried to do their best. We wish there would have been more time allotted between weddings to assist with ensuring all family pictures could have been completed in the Chapel. As we were leaving, the next couple was coming in and already starting to set up. I would highly recommend this vendor to other couples who are looking for a beautiful non-denominational venue!

UMD Memorial Chapel made the planning process extremely easy. They reached out to me on many occasions before I had to even think about reaching out to them. As a bride, there are a lot of details to remember, people to contact, timelines to follow-- and UMD made that extremely easy for me.

We had our wedding at this venue. It's perfect for those that want a more traditional look for their event. The staff is professional and everything ran perfectly. This venue is popular and you have to book at least a year in advance.
