There are darling libraries and museums available for the cultured engaged couple. Hotels, historic homes and country clubs abound for those pairs who like to keep it classic, and numerous indoor and outdoor venues that overlook the city's prized rivers, the Christina and the Delaware, for those who love natural beauty.

      You should know that weddings in New England are more expensive than in other parts of the country. On average, couples in Delaware spend close to $45,000 for their wedding day.

      Travel and Accommodation in Wilmington

      Five miles south of Wilmington is the Wilmington Airport. However, the airport is quite small and its services can be irregular. For a wider variety of flight options for your wedding guests arriving from afar, advise guests to fly into the Philadelphia International Airport in Pennsylvania and traverse the 21 miles southwest to Wilmington.

      When you send out wedding invitations or build a wedding website, it's customary to recommend a hotel for guests to consider. On average, hotels in Wilmington run anywhere from $150 to $200 a night. If possible, reserve a hotel block and encourage your friends and family to stay in one of the aforementioned blocked rooms.

      Additionally, guests looking for a wider variety of accommodations can consider staying in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 32 miles northeast of Wilmington. Philadelphia takes about an hour to reach by car, if there's no traffic, and is a larger city with more hotel and wedding venue options.

      Weather Forecast in Wilmington

      Whether you're getting married inside or contemplating reserving an outdoor wedding venue in Wilmington, it helps to know what to expect from the weather.
