Be a Del Bride at Hotel del Coronado


Be more than a Bride. Be a Del Bride.


CORONADO, CA — Even before The Del opened its doors in 1888, it showed a truly romantic promise. In fact, the resort celebrated its first wedding in 1887, while The Del was still under construction. The bride and groom, daughter and son of two supervising engineers, exchanged vows in the Ballroom.


Since that time, The Del has enjoyed more than 125 years of legendary romance. King Edward VIII of England gave up his throne to marry the former Coronado housewife Wallis Simpson (it is rumored they may have met at The Del during Edward’s 1920 visit). And, the love story Bid Time Return took place at The Del, which brought together Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour in the movie version Somewhere in Time. Thousands of beautiful weddings later, Hotel del Coronado, situated on one of the nation’s most breathtaking beaches, launches ‘Del Bride’: a high-touch, high-service experience from the moment a bride is first shown the property.


A Del Bride is like unlike any other in the world

From the moment a potential bride sees the red-roofed signature turret, she knows she has arrived. The experience she has is like any other, with memorable touches from a glass of signature Taittinger Rosé champagne from a greeter on arrival, to VIP valet parking whenever she’s on property, to exclusive gifts and invitations to Del Bride only events. The Spa even developed a ‘Del Bride’ signature shade of blush nailpolish with Spa Ritual.


This romantic legacy comes alive with sun-drenched beaches, moonlit ocean views and spectacular venues like the Crown Room with signature L. Frank Baum-designed crown chandeliers, oceanfront Ballroom with stunning views and the seaside Windsor Lawn. With impeccable service and award-winning cuisine, it’s easy to see why the Travel Channel named The Del the #1 best place to get married in the U.S., and why thousands of Del Brides have chosen this legendary place to start their lives.


The Hotel del Coronado has been Southern California’s premier wedding and honeymoon destination for over a century. Generations of couples enjoy knowing that they have become a permanent part of The Del’s romantic history, returning to celebrate anniversaries and second honeymoons.
