Wedding venue in Paris – Hotel d’Evreux

August 28, 2020

Planning your wedding in Hotel d’Evreux has numerous advantages. It is located in the heart of Paris, right on the iconic Place Vendome, which means that your guests don’t have to travel to get there. You will find numerous hotels around including the famous Ritz, Le Meurice, Castille and Westin.

Despite its confusing name, hotel d’Evreux is not a hotel, but a private events venue. The word “hotel” is used in French to designate private mansions and townhouses, not only hotels.

The ballrooms of hotel d’Evreux are all lit with natural daylight and have an amazing view on the Place Vendome. There are two balconies that you can use to make killer wedding photos for your album.

Today, Hotel d’Evreux hosts gala dinners, VIP events and catwalks during Paris Fashion Weeks. If you love historical décor with regal flair, you should definitely consider getting married here!

Capacity

Hotel d’Evreux is perfectly adapted to host a wedding with up to fifty guests. The place is composed of six interconnecting rooms of different sizes, but only Salon Diamant (below) can welcome a seated dinner for the whole group. If you don’t mind separating guests into three different rooms, you can seat up to eighty people or so.

In case if you plan a bigger celebration with 100+ guests, you can also use their Salle de Tirages, a spacious ballroom situated on the ground level. It is less glamorous but has an excellent capacity. And you can always enjoy the cocktail and the ceremony in the rooms above.

Its walls covered with gold, its opulent décor, richly decorated chimneys and stunning view on the place Vendome create a sumptuous and almost formal setting.
