About Us

With Hotel du Pont’s experienced wedding planners, each detail of your special day will be professionally managed. Allow world-class wedding designers and chefs to help you create an entirely customized wedding celebration. Design gourmet menus for any of your events – from the engagement party and bridal shower to the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Reserve blocks of discounted rooms for your guests, and let them arrange a golf outing or spa day for the bridal party. From the décor to the floral arrangements to the entertainment, the Hotel du Pont wedding team will ensure that every moment is perfect.

Consider the Gold Ballroom, a French Neoclassic venue featuring gilded rosettes, glittering chandeliers and bas-reliefs of famous women, including Helen of Troy and Cleopatra. It’s a dramatic setting for weddings and special events of up to 500 guests.

Brides also enjoy the du Barry Room, the hotel’s most popular space and one of the most romantic function spaces in Delaware. This Federal-style room is appointed with white pillars, parquet floors, elegant sconces and a magnificent crystal chandelier imported from Europe.
