Whether it’s a wild celebration or a relaxed getaway, finding the right destination can set the tone for an unforgettable pre-wedding bash. Below, we explore a selection of diverse destinations and hotels and the types of brides who may find them most appealing.
THE HISTORY BUFF BRIDE
The nation’s capital, Washington D.C., is most famous for being home to policymakers, countless museums and historic sites, but the food, drink, and nightlife options are worth a trip, too. The perfect destination for a bride who likes history and educational activities, but still wants to celebrate and have a good time with her girls! The Kimpton Banneker Hotel is a 144-room euro-modern luxury boutique hotel that offers the perfect home base for the best of both worlds: within walking distance to the National Mall and nestled between DuPont Circle and the bustling 14th street perfect for dinner, drinks, and dancing. Its iconic rooftop bar and lounge, Lady Bird, is a great spot for the ladies to start the night and boasts sweeping views of the White House and Washington Monument.
