Weddings at Virden Retreat Center
Coastal celebrations in a private setting.
From ceremony to slumber, we invite you to experience the Virden Center in Lewes for an unforgettable wedding weekend.
A Day in the Life of a Wedding Weekend
The Virden Center’s flexible space, tented patio, and expansive grounds enable us to specialize in indoor/outdoor affairs including ceremonies under a setting sun and activities like lawn games.
Our onsite lodging makes it easy for everyone to relax and enjoy the moment together, long into the evening, while staying in one location. And we’re happy to accommodate for special needs and food sensitivities.
Tour our unique coastal venue with one of our event specialists, and allow us the honor of hosting your special day.
Making it a day to remember.
“I can’t even put into words how much my heart appreciates all you and everyone at the Virden Center did to make Laurie’s wedding so amazing! Now I know why she loves you all so much! I couldn’t have done it without all your help and kindness.”
