Getting Ready Accommodations at Madison Beach Hotel

A suite is included in your Madison Beach Hotel wedding package so you can have your (and your bridesmaids) hair and makeup done on site at the hotel and won’t have to worry about traveling off the property to a salon. In keeping with the luxury brand of the hotel, the bridal suites are very spacious, meticulously appointed, and, well, luxurious! You’ll feel like you are on vacation.


The groom and his groomsmen typically get ready in one of the hospitality rooms the hotel has available for their getting ready preparations. The hospitality rooms are like little conference rooms/ballrooms and make for a comfortable setting for putting on your suit and tie … and maybe enjoying a beverage or two before you walk down the aisle.


Ceremony Location(s) at Madison Beach Hotel

The hotel has its own private beach area for ceremonies so you can get married right on the beach! One of the few wedding venues in Connecticut that offers a true beachfront wedding ceremony. Should it rain, ceremonies are moved inside and held in the Grand Ballroom.


Reception Location at Madison Beach Hotel

Wedding receptions are held in the hotel’s Grand Ballroom which features 180 degree views of the Long Island Sound. It is truly a stunning location! You can also take in the ocean front views from the balcony off the ballroom. 


Locations for Madison Beach Hotel Wedding Photos

The photo opportunities at Madison Beach Hotel are simply stunning! You can choose from the manicured lawn right near the beach, the sandy beachfront itself, or, if you are feeling really adventurous, you can even venture onto the enormous rocks jutting out into the sound.

And since you are on the beach, the sunsets are gorgeous! And make for some seriously romantic mood lighting for portraits.

My Take

I mean what’s not to like! Weddings at Madison Beach Hotel are really unique because it’s one of the few wedding venues in Connecticut where you can truly have a wedding on the beach. Add in the fact that Madison Beach Hotel is a premier luxury hotel and you’ve got yourself one of the most amazing wedding experiences you can have in the state! I highly recommend Madison Beach Hotel for couples planning a midsize wedding on the beach. You can’t go wrong!
