I just had my wedding at the Tidewater Inn last month and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the venue and the wonderful service we received from Melanie and her staff. I don't know why everyone doesn't get married there! My fiance and I absolutely fell in love with it as soon as we saw it - it's just beautiful and the town of Easton is lovely. We wanted a "local destination" type of wedding, where it would feel like a mini vacation for our guests, and that's exactly what we got. We had the rehearsal dinner there, the reception, and almost all of our guests stayed there. Things could not have gone more smoothly, from the early stages of planning through the last day of the wedding weekend - Melanie, Lauren, Sarah, and the rest of the staff there are just wonderful (I can't tell you how many of our guests commented on the wonderful level of service they received). Wedding planning was not my favorite thing! But Melanie made it as pain-free as possible for me. She always seems to maintain a cool and calm demeanor, which is super helpful, especially the day of. Lastly, the food was tremendous. I never rave about wedding food (so hard to get it right for so many people), but they nailed it for the rehearsal dinner and the reception. Like I said before, I don't know why everyone doesn't get married at the Tidewater :)

Tidewater Inn made our wedding day perfect. Melanie, the events coordinator there, is fantastic. We were worried this place was out of our budget, but she found creative ways to give us everything we wanted without breaking the bank. She's meticulous and flexible and one of the sweetest people you'll work with throughout the wedding-planning process.

When the big day finally came, we couldn't get over how attentive and accommodating the entire staff was. For example, one staff member noticed me standing awkwardly with the marriage license, not knowing where to put it, and immediately asked if she could take it up to the room.

Another: I asked Melanie if she could have someone bring a tray of food (specifically the food we chose for the wedding) up to our room soon after the ceremony started so that we could sneak up there for about 15 minutes and eat before making our reception entrance. We went up there to find an enormous tray full of food—even more than we could eat. It's little details like these that helped make this venue great.

Onto the big details: The place is gorgeous. We had our October ceremony in the Gold Ballroom Garden, which we called "the tent." It's this stunning semi-outdoor area shaped like the most beautiful round tent you've ever seen, with a couple of fireplaces built into the inside walls. It's completely covered but looks open at the top, thanks to a beautiful sail-cloth-style roof.

We had our reception in the Gold Ballroom, which provided the perfect space for our estimated 175 guests. Tidewater does it all: food (phenomenal, by the way—the fried oysters are a must), alcohol, linens, china, bridal suite, day-of wedding coordinator (Melanie).

The fact that it was also an inn was a big plus. Our guests were thrilled that everything—ceremony, reception, hotel—was all at the same place.

It was the perfect wedding, and we couldn't have chosen a better venue. You can't go wrong planning your event here.

Thank you to the wonderful team at the Tidewater for helping us plan the wedding of our dreams! Lauren, Melanie, Sarah, and the banquet manager, Greg, are so incredibly good at what they do. The only part of our wedding that I didn't worry about was the reception running smoothly, and that is because the Tidewater's team are true professionals.

Lauren, Melanie, Sarah and Samantha were all so helpful in answering my endless number of questions during the wedding planning process. From arranging and rearranging the table setups, to suggesting vendors, and helping us select a menu-- they were always so friendly and easy to work with. The day of the event, they made sure everything went according to plan. They even handled the one hiccup we had with transportation, which was a huge relief for a high stress bride like me.

To this day, three months later, all of our guests still rave about the food. We had raw oysters, lobster mac, and some passed appetizers at the cocktail hour, and the stuffed prawn with filet for the seated dinner. The staff at the Tidewater were sweet enough to make sure we had some food in a private room for the wedding party after the ceremony, and they even brought in dinner for me and my husband so we could eat privately before the reception.

We could not have had a better experience with the Tidewater and can not thank them enough for such an incredible night.

If you want superior service from the beginning of the planning process, during the actual event and all the way through the happily ever after, you cannot go wrong with the beautiful historic Tidewater Inn in Easton, Maryland. Lauren Catterton a d her staff are experienced "event planners" guiding you through every critical decision resulting in a flawless experience. The Tidewater chef is a culinary genius serving not only delicious gourmet food for over 150 but also platings which were beautifully presented! The wait staff was incredibly attentive and gracious. Genuinely taking pride in providing exceptional service! I give the Tidewater a 5+ rating and thank them from the bottom of my heart for providing my daughter with the wedding of her dreams!

We just had our wedding this past weekend at the Tidewater Inn and everything was perfect! There were a lot of wedding parties there over the past weekend, but the staff was extremely responsive and friendly. The venue has a great garden for your ceremony and two ballrooms to choose from. We found the prices to be extremely reasonable in the DC area. The best part about this venue is Melanie, their wedding coordinator, she knows exactly what she is doing and was such a great asset! It's also a great venue if you are looking for an "all in one" location since there is a restaurant and bar on-site as well.

Finally, the local area adds to the special charm of this place, we had multiple dinners throughout the weekend at local restaurants and everything is in talking distance!

My daughter's wedding at the Tidewater Inn was picture perfect. The food was delicious and so plentiful - no one went hungry! But the most remarkable aspect of the Tidewater experience to me was the service provided by Melanie and the wedding team. They were the friendliest, most helpful people to work with. Their advice was always spot on. What I loved the most was that Melanie handled all the wedding day logistics, making sure everything went off without a hitch. I also loved that at the end of the evening, I did not have to gather up our personal decorations. The Tidewater staff took care of it and the next morning, they were all boxed up and ready for us to load in the car. That was priceless!

Just a quick story..we just recently were married at the Tidewater. I got engaged on April 6th 2014. Along with all the happiness and excitement, there was a bit of anxiety, and not about the dress. My Mother was diagnosed with terminal Cancer in January and was give 6 months or less to live. I knew she was a fighter and would prove their timeline wrong but not sure by how long. We found Tidewater through a friend, it was the first place we looked at and we were sold! We live in Baltimore. My husbands family is on Cape Cod so we fell in love with the Tidewater and the town of Easton. I thought that planning a wedding in such a short amount of time was going to be next to impossible and we would have to sacrifice quality. Melanie at Tidewater was beyond wonderful! She knew just how important it was for us the have my Mother there. We could not have had a more perfect day! I didn't have a thing to worry about. They were on top of things that I didn't know they needed to be on top of. The property is so peaceful. The food, and staff were amazing. My mother looked beyond beautiful and had the time of her life. She recently passed and we are so happy to have such heartfelt memories of her at my wedding. OK, I am now rambling. Bottom line, The Tidewater Inn is Aaaaaaamazing!
