The "Plus-One" Conundrum

One of the most challenging part of planning a wedding is writing and finalizing the guest list. A lot of our brides frequently ask us how to determine whether or not a guest should be able to bring a plus one. The bride and groom don't mean to offend any of their guests, but in some cases, it's just not an option to allow for each of your guests to bring a guest with them. We've found three great articles that can help you make your decisions!

Great Things Are Happening!

With wedding season in full swing, we've recently had some great reviews on Wedding Wire and The Knot!

 Read below to see what great things brides have been saying about us!


A beautiful venue for a wedding!    posted 6/7/2013
We had our wedding at the Salem Waterfront on 5/26/13. The venue is gorgeous and has beautiful views of the ocean. Our pictures came out amazing!! We had previously looked at about 10 different places and no one could compete with the price (they have a few different packages for weddings to accommodate any price range), location and value that Salem Waterfront offered. We met with Adrianna (wedding coordinator) at our first visit and were impressed with her energetic & bubbly personality. She seemed to have a lot of experience with weddings and now I know she is capable of dealing with any situation (or bride for that matter). She was always available to take my calls and answer my many emails. On the day of the wedding she checked in with me multiple times about all the little details I had requested, was patient, flexible and quick to resolve a few "issues" that came up. Everything was amazing and exactly how we wanted it to be. The food here is so good and the portion sizes are decent compared to other venues where I have attended weddings. We used the Regatta Pub (at the hotel) for our cocktail hour and also had our ceremony on-site. They also had another room used for the bridal party during cocktail hour after pictures and provided us cheese and crackers with champagne. We would highly recommend the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Marina to anyone planning a wedding!!!


We had our wedding reception at the Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina on April 27th, 2013. We started planning with Adrianna over a year in advance and she made the entire process from start to finish simple and fun. She was very professional, easy going and extremely accommodating to all of our needs, big or small. Our wedding day was perfect from check in on Friday until we left on Sunday. Kelly and the bartending team treated our guests like VIPs at the reception and at the Regatta Pub both nights. I would definitely recommend Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina for a perfect wedding experience!
