Congratulations to you on your wedding plans - we would love to host your special day at The Lilac Inn in Brandon, Vermont.

The Lilac Inn has been selected as one of the 100 best U.S. Wedding destinations by Kathryn Gabriel Loving. We are known for creating romantic Vermont destination dream wedding ceremony, reception and unforgettable memories - in any season. We specialize in developing custom menus, including vegetarian and vegan, that incorporate much of Vermont's fresh bounty from local farms and suppliers.

Our completely renovated 1909 mansion, a designated Green Hotel in the State of Vermont, has hosted over five hundred Vermont wedding receptions - ranging in size from two to two hundred and fifty guests. Decorated in a relaxing yet elegant style, the Inn is inviting and comfortable. Each Vermont wedding reception here is a special celebration and we schedule only one reception per day tailored to your personal tastes.

The air conditioned grand ballroom features a fire place, oversized beveled glass doors and windows and can accommodate 130 seated guests. French doors fill the room with soft sunlight from its southern exposure. Since your Vermont wedding is a time of family sharing and reunions with friends from afar, we suggest at least a two-day event. This provides a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, reconnect with family and have time to enjoy being together. Plus, we are pet friendly.

Our extensive gardens, cozy library and English-theme tavern are especially conducive to these goals. Our Vermont wedding venue packages can include rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and day after wedding brunch - each with a menu designed especially for you and your tastes.

We welcome your selection of any or all of the events, and we look forward to helping you create the Vermont wedding reception of a lifetime.

Deciding to get married at the Lilac Inn was the easiest and best decision we made while planning our wedding. If you're thinking of getting married in Vermont, you should definitely book a tour here. Shelly is amazing and will help you plan your dream wedding. When you book the Inn, you get the opportunity to use the grounds for the entire weekend while Shelly coordinated all of the catering, tent rental, and staffing. I still keep dreaming about the butternut squash ravioli we had as one of our food options, it was out of this world! Our 140 guest wedding felt intimate and our guests enjoyed exploring the beautiful gardens and taking advantage of the ballroom for dancing and the fire pit for relaxing. We chose to have the ceremony in the garden and I'm so glad that we did. Brandon is a beautiful example of small town Vermont and your guests will love the hospitality and all the area has to offer.

All I can say is: WOW! They did everything we asked for and more. The food was exceptional, the rooms were the most beautiful and clean hotel rooms I've ever stayed in and when the weather didn't cooperate, they made easy adjustments to the plans. I would highly recommend this Inn for a romantic stay or for your wedding. We will be back on our anniversaries for years to come!

We had a small wedding of about 40 people with 20 more guests joining us for the reception. The venue, food and hospitality were outstanding. Thank you to the owners of the inn.

The Lilac Inn was the perfect venue for us. We had our families stay with us and our wedding felt like a great weekend getaway. Everyone loved their rooms, the food, and the time we were able to spend together. We had other guests stay at inns throughout town- which worked out great since there's so many within walking distance. The Inn was very responsive to our needs and worked with us to plan a menu that featured local, seasonal foods, local beers, and was served family style. They made sure our wedding really reflected our values. The day was beautiful and stress-free. I highly recommend!

My husband and I went to Brandon, VT in November 2013 to elope and couldn't have done it without The Lilac Inn. The owners, Shelly & Doug, went above and beyond to accommodate us and let us bring our Boston Terrier too! Our ceremony took place in the state park nearby but they very generously let us take pictures around in the Inn before hand. The Lilac Inn was by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed and any bride would be lucky to get married there! (Trust me, I'm actually a Wedding Planner! I know, lol!)

Shelly and Doug went above and beyond to make our wedding special. From the tasting before the wedding through packing up extra cake for us to bring home the morning after, everything was excellent. Our wedding party and family stayed at the Inn for the weekend. Having the inn to ourselves was very nice; it really felt like our home for the weekend. All of the little touches - some requested by us and some added by Shelly - added up for a perfect event.

Shelly and Doug were amazing. We are three weeks out from our wedding and guests are still talking about how beautiful the Inn is and the delicious food at the reception. They were flexible and provided options that fit our budget. They were also very resourceful with helping us sort out last minute mishaps (extra tables and vases for flowers, dinner options for out of towners, to-go breakfast for early travelers, forgotten suitcases and returning rentals to vendors). They really helped to ensure that we had a relaxing and enjoyable time with what could easily have been a very stressful event. Booking the Lilac was one of the best wedding decisions we made.
Lilac Inn responded with the following comments:
Dear Adanna and Conor, It was our pleasure to host your wedding. We are so happy that you enjoyed your time here. It was so wonderful to get to meet your families and help make your wedding a special and memorable event. Thank you so much for the lovely review! We hope that you will come back and visit us again soon. Best, Shelly and Doug

The Lilac Inn was the perfect location for my wedding. It was everything I had wanted it to be. It was a gorgeous location (from the grounds, to the reception area, to the bridal suite). Everything was simply picture perfect. I would recommend it to anyone.

The inn was a great place to host a wedding and reception, the food was excellent, the rooms were amazing and the inn keepers were great to work with. There was one issue with the room setup. The room was supposed to be set up for 100 and it was only set for 90. When the food was served they noticed that a few people didn't have seats. They were VERY quick to respond and correct the situation. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
