The Merion Tribute House has served as the backdrop to the weddings of unique couples in the Philadelphia region since 1924. Built in the Arts and Crafts neo-Gothic style of that era, the building was envisioned as a community center to celebrate the peace of the Armistice ending World War I and as a tribute to the men who fought and died in that war from the Merion community. A nonprofit organization, we still serve as a meeting place for community groups and as the location for many galas and fundraisers for nonprofit organizations in the area.
A versatile location, couples can choose to hold ceremonies outdoors or inside, with cocktail hour taking place on an ample flagstone terrace or inside the front rooms with two working fireplaces. The ballroom can accommodate 175 with a dance floor. Sitting on 8 acres of manicured grounds, there are plenty of places for photographs among the flowers or with the great stone arches and doors as the backdrop. A Juliet balcony is a unique way to say hello or farewell to guests, or to toss that bouquet you weren’t thinking of tossing!
We have been around long enough to know what’s important to couples and their guests. Plenty of parking, garden backdrops, handicapped access, two dressing suites, a lending area of wedding props and decor, interesting decor that needs little embellishment, budget-friendly options, and both outdoor and indoor options for any weather pattern.
Couples can choose from a wide variety of caterers for food and bartending services and are welcome to bring in their own vendors (or DIY) florists, photographers, music, etc. Our staff helps to coordinate the many little details that arise beforehand and the day of.
