Kittens and butterflies and rainbow and unicorns, oh my! At least you should feel like one of those magical things when you’re about to get married or you’re doing it wrong.
And now in chilly Philly, engagement season has come to a close (unless you do the super cheese Valentine’s Day proposal). All of a sudden, there is an urgency to find a wedding venue. But where? Philly and the burbs have you covered from farm, to country club to hotel to cozy restaurant. Which will you chose as your wedding nest?
For starters, Normandy Farm in Blue Bell is your one-stop shop. Rustic-chic barn setting with resort hotel and conference center plus a farm fresh restaurant and bakeshop! They also offer in-house services including Willow & Thistle for lowers and Tyler Boye for photography. Normandy Farm is more than a meticulously restored American landmark. It is a fully wired high-tech hospitality venue offering the best of many worlds. Fun fact: this property throws over 350 weddings a year!
Is country club prep more your style? Try Blue Bell Country Club for that classic “Philadelphia Society” setting. Beautiful expanses of green, great food and first-class service. Blue Bell Country Club is a full-service country club offering various sports and recreational activities for those who play more than just golf.
For a more suburban setting, try the Wayne Hotel or Radnor Hotel. Wayne Hotel hosts an intimate setting, delicious bites and cocktails to die for from connecting restaurant Paramour, while Radnor Hotel hosts a larger crowd with their glamorous outdoor Formal Gardens and includes a personalized wedding specialist to help cater to all specific needs. Eat, drink, celebrate and stay with your guests, all in one convenient and easy location!
The Radnor Hotel is the only Full Service Hotel in Philadelphia’s Main Line Suburbs of Pennsylvania. The Radnor is located on Lancaster Avenue, Route 30.

Or maybe florals are your thing? Valley Forge Flowers is the mecca of flowers on the Main Line. Host your rehearsal dinner and wedding reception in The Barn or DIY bouquet and flowers with a workshop for you and your maids.
