1. Hôtel de Paris: a genuinely royal experience

Ready to get a full royal experience? This is one of the fanciest wedding venues in Monaco. Above all, this internationally renowned luxury palace was the scene of the wedding of Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier. Located between the Mediterranean and the Casino square, this 5-star hotel combines Monaco’s glamour with Belle Époque architecture and the sea as a backdrop. 

For your wedding, Hôtel de Paris offers modular rooms for events up to 464 people, in a totally personalized experience.

Besides doing your destination wedding there, you and your guests also have three strong reasons to choose it for your stay: you will enjoy the Casino de Monte-Carlo, Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo, and the Beach Club. If that is not enough for you, in Hôtel de Paris, you can enjoy the 3-Michelin-starred Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse.

2. Hôtel Hermitage: Enjoy the Belle Époque charm

In the heart of the Monte-Carlo district, the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo offers an atmosphere of timeless elegance. You’ll probably be amazed by its architecture and its romantic – yet very classic – décor. 

Just like in Hôtel de Paris, here you’ll also have direct access to Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo and Monte-Carlo Beach Club. Last but not least, at this wedding venue in Monaco, you can enjoy the fine gourmet cuisine at Yannick Alléno, a Michelin-starred restaurant. 

To celebrate weddings, the hotel has five different options. If you want to do an outdoor wedding, their terraces would be the best option. On the other hand, if you want a celebration surrounded by opulent architecture, the Salon Excelsior and Salle Belle Epoque are great choices.

3. Monte Carlo Bay Hotel & Beach: between the sea and the lagoon

How about getting married in a true oasis? Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort is one of the wedding venues in Monaco that brings together scenarios like a turquoise sandy-bottom lagoon, the view from the Mediterranean Sea, and 4 hectares of gardens featuring waterfalls, solariums, and a pool. The foodies will undoubtedly enjoy the Michelin-starred cuisine of The Blue Bay. 

Looking forward to doing an outdoor wedding overlooking the sea? Then, the Mediterranean Gardens of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort would be a stunning choice. A ceremony there can accommodate up to 300 guests. You can also have an outdoor reception or, if you prefer, use some rooms like Salle Columbia or Salle America.

4. Salle des Etoiles

How about getting married in the same place where Charles Aznavour, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John did some epic performances? Well, you can do that at Salle des Etoiles, one of the wedding venues in Monaco, which is located in the heart of the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Due to its structure of 1,100 m², it can host huge concerts and weddings for up to 600 guests. 

One of its most remarkable features is the removable roof, which transforms the space from indoor to outdoor. Indeed, a great surprise for your guests, who will enjoy being under the stars. They also have a catering service that will provide an elegant finishing touch to your dinner.

Considered one the most glamorous and romantic wedding venues in Monaco, it stands out for its mass of daylight, with its large windows.

6. Cap Estel Hotel: breathtaking view on the Mediterranean

Elected as the Best Sea-front Hotel in France by World Travel Awards, Cap Estel Hotel is only 10 minutes away from Monaco. So, if you are looking for panoramic views for your wedding, this boutique hotel is just perfect as it is situated on a peninsula jutting into the Mediterranean Sea.

Moreover, this property has received many celebrities for over 50 years due to its safety and discretion. So, if you are looking for a quiet and private oasis to celebrate your wedding – yet very elegant and charming-you just found it.

There, you can have an outdoor ceremony overlooking the sea followed by a gorgeous reception in its garden for more than 70 guests. See how to create a garden style wedding in France.

7. Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild: a nearby palace

Located approximately 20 minutes from Monaco, Villa Ephrussi will definitely have your heart once you see the nine magnificent gardens overlooking the Peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

If you want to celebrate a full-weekend destination wedding, Villa Ephrussi offers different scenarios to do all your festivities. For example, at the French Garden, you can have an outdoor ceremony surrounded by palm trees and flower beds. Grand Patio would be the best choice for your reception, especially because you can set the dance floor there. The Oriental Dining Room is perfect if you want to impress your guests at the rehearsal dinner – the view of the bay of Villefranche and the lights of the boat will be unforgettable.

8. Villa La Vigie: do it in Karl Lagerfeld’s style

What about giving your wedding some fashion glamour? Ville La Vigie stands out for being the former home of Karl Lagerfeld, who completely renovated the property in the 1980s. One of his most significant changes was the charming 237 sqm Terrace overlooking the bays of Monaco and Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.

The décor will impress you and your guests, as it brings out marble, columns, fireplaces, parquet flooring, and a high ceiling.

Nestled in a leafy setting overlooking the bay of Monte-Carlo, it is an attractive choice for spending a weekend with your guests. It offers six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two dressing rooms, and high-end facilities. 

Even though you can host up to 300 people for a cocktail, I would recommend a wedding there for 80-120 guests to make sure you’ll enjoy every space offered by the property. 

With a stunning garden and a jacuzzi, the outdoor area creates the WOW factor in  Villa La Vigie. And don’t forget to enjoy the breathtaking views of the terrace! You won’t regret it!   

Fine cuisine

And last but not least: don’t think I’m only fine-dining obsessed (I mean, I am.. but have quite few other obsessions ha!). Villa La Vigie offers the very talented and creative cuisine from the Monte Carlo Beach, by :

  • Head Chef: Pascal Garrigues. The Chef pays homage to the Mediterranean with healthy, authentic cuisine at one with nature.
  • Pastry Chef: Giuseppe Vitrani. Mouth-watering and magical, the Chef’s creations will take your event to the next level.
  • Head Baker: Thomas Subrin. Winner of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, Thomas never fails to rise to the occasion, transforming flour, salt, yeast, and water into a hearty dose of cheer. 

 

I love Villa La Vigie so much. Every corner there is full of elegance and brings creativity to the extra miles. From aesthetic to wow-views, I adore the team we have there to imagine your unique moments on site.
