Shangrila

With a grand staircase at the entrance to these historical apartments, you’ll have an ideal spot for bridal portraits and an impactful moment for your guests when they arrive. The historic Hotel Shangri-La is one of the best hotel wedding locations in Paris. Located in the heart of the 16th arrondissement, this property was once the family home of Napoleon. While it’s a luxury hotel today, it certainly can feel as inviting as home.

This hotel wedding location in Paris is ideal for a more intimate wedding. The Grand Salon suits 80 to 100 perfectly, while the Salle a Manger can host 90 guests for dinner. If you have 50 or fewer guests, a party on the terrace with a view of the Eiffel Tower is ideal. Cocktails or a welcome reception are lovely here.

I recommend hosting dinner in the Grand Salon, a beautiful golden gilded ballroom with high ceilings and a regal feel. This space is also wonderful for ceremonies or cocktails if your guest count is larger. Then off to the Salon Napoleon Bonaparte for dinner and dancing! An alternative is to dance downstairs in the Salon Roland Bonaparte, which can accommodate late parties up to 160 guests. The bottom line, you have wonderful options here.

Then, once you’ve selected your spaces, you’ll delight in the cuisine. The catering by Chef Christophe Moret won’t disappoint. The fine dining experience here is one you and your guests will remember.

Before and after the wedding day, book the Shangri-La Suite for your wedding night and getting ready. It’s the best bridal or honeymoon suite in Paris! With warm, modern décor and a massive balcony with views of the Eiffel Tower, it’s no wonder Hotel Shangri-La is one of the best hotel wedding locations in Paris.

What to Know Before You Book: If you’re seeking an outdoor setting for your wedding, you’ll want to book an additional venue for your ceremony as this property does not have garden spaces.

APE Idea: Incorporate Napoleon into the theme (since it was his family home at one time). Welcome guests upon arrival with Napoleon figures standing at attention. It makes for a great Instagram moment!

I suggest using the lovely hotel garden terrace for cocktails before moving into the historic ballrooms for the reception.
