CHILD CARE Kid Care Anywhere WHY THE MAYFLOWER FOR CAPITAL BRIDAL AFFAIR AND FASHION SHOW? We couldn’t find a single reason why not!
The hotel sits South of Dupont Circle, North of Farragut Square and has since 1925. The Mayflower has been home to many, including President Harry Truman who famously referred to the hotel as the “second best address in Washington” – second to the White House, that is. We are honored and excited to call The Mayflower ‘home’ for CBA’s Spring show! (Please see below for more fun historic facts about The Mayflower!)
The Mayflower hotel is known for many things, especially for being the host of countless gorgeous, breath taking weddings! Every wedding is unique: the staff members of The Mayflower understand that and aim to make your special day everything you dream it can be. You can be confident in choosing The Mayflower for one of the most important days of your life.
For more information about weddings at The Mayflower, please view their website, or contact them directly to schedule a tour and learn more about what The Mayflower can do for you. Please mention that you are a CBA bride and they will take extra good care of you!
