6 Best Places In Santa Monica To Get Married 

At one point, Santa Monica was in the top ten most expensive places in the country to get married – still, many people chose it as their wedding locale because of the beautiful vistas and culture. While you may have your diamond rings ready for the big day, you likely have a lot of planning left to do for your wedding. If you live in the area or are just looking for a beautiful destination wedding, there are some fantastic places to get married here. Let’s take a look at the best places in Santa Monica to tie the knot. 

Santa Monica Proper Hotel 

If you’re the type of couple who wants a luxurious wedding for yourselves and all your loved ones to remember, Santa Monica Proper Hotel should be at the top of your list of venues to check out. The hotel is renowned for its design, but there’s a holistic spa for both the bridal and groom parties to pamper themselves on the day before the big day. As it’s a hotel, it’s an easy and convenient location for your out-of-town guests and makes the perfect night for your first night together before heading out on your honeymoon the next day. 

Santa Monica Beach 

While the beach doesn’t issue permits specifically for the wedding, you are allowed to use the beach as your wedding venue. Of course, there are many rules and lots of etiquette to holding a beach wedding, especially if you want to make things perfect – but these are easily followed on the beach without breaking any rules. Getting married by the ocean is a familiar wedding setting as it takes minimal decor, which can save you significantly on your wedding budget. 

1212 Santa Monica 

1212 Santa Monica is a restaurant but also an incredibly popular wedding venue. The modern venue is over 12,000 square feet, so if you know you’re having a huge wedding, this should be an excellent fit for you. Since it’s a restaurant, you don’t have to search hard for a caterer, and the cuisine at 1212 is phenomenal, locally sourced, and fresh. Another perk of this location is its proximity to the beach, making it an ideal setting for even the most discerning couples. If you’re looking for a site with almost everything, this is the spot.

The Victorian 

Bridgerton-themed engagement rings and weddings are having a significant moment right now. If you and your partner have been binging the show or are huge Downton Abbey fans, The Victorian is an excellent venue choice. To be honest, if you love classic beauty, an air of romance, and a twist of contemporary comforts, this historic venue is a great pick. The venue is over 15,000 square feet of event space, making this mansion perfect for large affairs. 

Hotel Casa Del Mar 

Opulence, glamor, and luxury all come to mind when thinking about the Hotel Casa Del Mar. This stunning venue offers anything and everything a couple could want in their space. At almost 100 years old (built-in 1926), this oceanfront property is one of the most sought-after event spaces on the West Coast. While it may set you back a pretty penny to have your big day take place at Hotel Casa Del Mar, it’s a once in a lifetime day and a once in a lifetime experience, so if you can afford it, invest in HCDM as your venue, you will not regret it.

Fairmont Miramar Hotel Santa Monica 

Rounding out the list of the top-rated locations to get married in Santa Monica is Fairmont Miramar Hotel Santa Monica. Set on the bluffs with idyllic and jaw dropping vistas of the Pacific Ocean, this venue has it all. There are bungalows for you and your spouse after the big day or other esteemed guests coming to your event. You can hold a wedding with over 400 people under the iconic Moreton Bay fig tree or in the gardens. This venue is top of the line with everything. A wedding here is memorable for everyone involved. 

Santa Monica, of course, has more places to enjoy your wedding than the ones listed above. But, if you’re looking to have an evening you’ll never forget, the locales mentioned earlier are the best of the best. Here’s to you and your happily ever after! Cheers!
