We'd love it if you would mention that you found Queen Mary on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Celebrate in a place that is like no other—aboard the Queen Mary. Permanently docked in Long Beach Harbor, this luxury ocean liner-turned-hotel/attraction offers the perfect venue for your wedding as well as breathtaking views.
The legendary Queen Mary set out on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City in 1936 and was considered the only way to travel for the world’s rich and famous. As soon as you step onto the ship, you get a sense of the glamour of that bygone era. She’s a treasure trove of Art Deco design, with event facilities guaranteed to wow your guests.
Fourteen luxurious salons are available for your reception, and collectively feature a wealth of handcrafted touches including exquisite paneling, unique light fixtures, etched-glass doors, original murals and carved marble fireplaces. And while you and your guests are appreciating the splendid surroundings, the Queen Mary’s full-service catering staff will take excellent care of everyone.
The Queen Mary also provides both outdoor and indoor options for your ceremony. To take advantage of the sunshine or sunset, get married on the bow or stern, under the Gazebo or on one of the decks. For a more traditional setting, the finely crafted Royal Wedding Chapel is a stunning choice.
An on-site wedding specialist can help you plan every detail of your wedding, from invitations to entertainment, as well as your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and even the breakfast before your honeymoon.
When the festivities have ended and the moon has risen over the harbor, retire to one of the ship’s original first-class staterooms for a romantic and peaceful night. It’s no mystery why every year hundreds of couples have their wedding on this extraordinary landmark: The Queen Mary sets the stage for an unforgettable experience.
