When you think of weddings do you think of saying “I do” by a 114-year-old tug boat? Having a cocktail hour in a museum gallery? Do you think of your wedding party taking photos in a replica of an early 20th-century garment loft? Well, at the BMI that’s exactly what we think of!
A wedding is a labor of love, it is a huge investment of money and time, and here at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, we understand that and we want to make your big day, and the journey leading up to that day, as seamless as possible. In 2019, 70 couples chose our historic venue for their special day and in 2020 we hope to see even more couples choose the BMI as a place to make their own history.
On January 12, the BMI invites couples to experience the space and connect with dozens of local industry professionals at our annual Wedding Open House. We'll have everything to help plan the perfect event: caterers offering delicious free samples, DJs, florists, photographers, and more. Explore our breathtaking waterfront setting and meet our event staff. And please know that revenue generated from event rentals helps to support the museum's education programs, collections, and exhibits.
The BMI captures the charm of Charm City and has something for everyone--just check out our reviews onwedding wire!
