Silver Swan Bayside 2.0
Why you should pick a full service wedding venue.
So you found your person, you said yes and are now engaged. Now what? As your families make their guest lists, you are faced with what may seem an overwhelming task of wedding planning; location, venue, accommodations, DJ or band, photography, videography, catering, bar, cake, hair, makeup, color palettes, and wedding apparel (just to start). All of your recently married friends, well intentioned though they may be, flood you with wedding tips and bleak warnings of things that may go wrong. Suddenly, your dreams are flooded with visions of long bar lines, forgotten veils, and your Maid of Honor buying the wrong shade of color for her shoes….
Let us be the first to tell you to step back and take a breath. Let us also be the first to let you know that saying “no” to the never ending stream of suggestions does not make you a “bridezilla”. In fact, can we agree to get rid of that term forever? As long as you don’t blame the weather on me, you and I are good to go!

Breathtaking Panoramic View of the Chesapeake Bay
Silver Swan Bayside is nestled on a residential peninsula in the neighborhood of Queen Anne Colony. While only a short drive from Annapolis, it feels as if you are a world apart. The natural landscape of Kent Island’s waterways create the most intimate soulful setting for your favorite day ever. Your guests will be blown away by the front row seat to the setting sun over the western shore.

Yes, you do have a few things to consider while venue shopping. If you are considering renting a venue where you must bring in your caterer, we would highly recommend a good planner who can coordinate all of these moving parts. You will be so grateful to have that set of experienced eyes making sure all of the pieces work together. At Silver Swan Bayside, while we welcome planners and love working with them, it is not always necessary because we have got you covered. In fact, by the time you walk down the aisle, we would consider you a friend and we are filled with gratitude for being a part of your most momentous occasion. At Silver Swan Bayside, we understand the importance of detailed planning and effective execution of each event that we take on. You are not just another couple, another client, another source of revenue… to us, you are family. We can’t wait to celebrate with you!
