Boston is an amazing city offering a range of wedding venues from waterfront hotels and museums to a rustic, classic feel of a vineyard. Here’s an overview of the many venues the area has to offer with links to specific locations in the Boston area:
Boat / Yacht
Whether you exchange your vows on the Charles River in a classic vessel or on a yacht with stunning skyline views, a wedding cruise is an unforgettable experience. Boston Harbor offers an abundance of vendors that provide this innovative wedding venue. Vessels will range from a historical paddlewheel boat to a large luxury entertainment yacht and can accommodate small intimate ceremonies or larger weddings with up to 380 guests. You can tailor your wedding to your specifics needs and budget with a variety of menu, décor and bar packages and entertainment options all in one place creating lasting memories with your friends and family.

Country / Golf Club
A country club wedding makes the venue search fast and simple and Boston houses some of the most remarkable country clubs and golf courses in the country. This type of venue often features stunning natural settings, beautiful water features, and luxuriant halls and many of them have an exclusive, upscale quality to them. It is a great choice for a larger wedding and can usually accommodate hundreds of guests for the reception and often the food is prepared on-site.

Inn / Bed & Breakfast
A small Inn or Bed & Breakfast can be a great option for a wedding venue. The small intimate setting might make you feel more relaxed because your wedding will feel more like a celebration with close-knit friends and family, than a production. You can also save thousands of dollars and pull out all the stops and have a truly lavish wedding. With fewer guests, you can splurge on the things that really matter to you. For some that might be an out-of-this world dinner, for others it might be a five-piece jazz band or a designer wedding gown. You will get to spend time with your guests making them feel welcome and chances are that many of your guests will know one another and have a more enjoyable time. Because your wedding won’t be typical – the kind your guests have been to over and over again – your wedding is more likely to be remembered.

What could be more traditional than a wedding in a historic home? Welcome guests into the great room for cocktail hour. Dance the night away in the ballroom. Get dressed upstairs in an actual bedroom. There should be plenty of space to say your vows, move to another room for cocktails and then another for dinner and dancing. A historic home usually has beautifully manicured grounds that you can use for wedding photos. The lawns also make a great place to give your guests some breathing room from the formal dining room throughout the event. The furniture, art on the walls, drapes and rugs will all give your venue a specific look. And everything from your place settings to flowers to wedding attire can be subtly themed to match the look of the home.

Hotel wedding venues are among the most popular and convenient venues especially if you are hosting out-of-town guests. A reception in the ballroom of a beautiful hotel is what many people think of when they picture a classic wedding. If you need to book a room block at a hotel anyway then your guests will have the convenience and comfort of not having to navigate an unfamiliar area. Most large hotels can accommodate a wide range of events—and that includes large or small weddings. The venue is pretty much a one-stop-shop with catering, linens, rentals, beauty services, flowers and more all available on-site.

Imagine being surrounded by art and history at your wedding. If you and your betrothed are culture vultures, a wedding at a museum is an option to consider. Whether you’re dining or saying your “I Do’s” near iconic art, museums are a show-stopping venue. Holding your wedding at a world-famous museum means you can host a very large wedding in the grand hall. But engaged museum-goers can also find a smaller (and more affordable) art museum or gallery that offers the same cache of a culture-focused wedding, but for a much more intimate group of guests. Look for local art galleries, niche museums or even a historic library that offers wedding rental space that can match your museum wedding fantasy.

Place of Worship
While a wedding can feature religious elements in just about any ceremony venue, having your wedding in a house of worship puts the religious aspects front and center. The church you belong to may have pews that can seat upwards of one thousand, or you may attend a small synagogue that would only accommodate very close friends and family. Either way, a house of worship shouldn’t limit the size of your wedding because there are a number of options. If you and your betrothed want the focus to remain on the ceremony, you could even choose to hold an understated reception in the house of worship itself, post-I Do. Many religious houses have an event room where you can host your guests for a low-key meal, cake and toasts. A house of worship can hold a special place in your heart if you grew up going there so if you and your fiancé feel at home in a particular house of worship, a wedding there is a wonderful way to start your life together.

If you plan to have a small wedding, a restaurant for the big day could be the way to go. Depending on the size of your guest list, you could book a private room or rent out an entire restaurant. Either way, there are lots of perks for you and your guests if you have your wedding celebration at a restaurant. Unlike venues that only have a catering kitchen, wedding at a restaurant means meals will be cooked on-demand and guests can choose from more than the standard chicken or fish. Plus, the venue research is extra fun. What a great excuse for you and your fiancé to dine out while you search for the perfect restaurant venue! Selecting a restaurant that shares something you both love is just another way to make your wedding personal for your guests.

Farm / Barn
Hosting your wedding day in a historic barn has become a hot trend in recent years. Couples can capture that rustic chic look with an authentic barn as their backdrop. And because most barn rentals are simply an empty shell, it’s a great place for the bride who has very specific ideas about what she wants her wedding day to look like. A barn wedding lends itself to getting hands-on with all the little decorative details. From the bar to the favors to the guestbook, a barn wedding is a great place to DIY all your Pinterest-worthy ideas. A wedding in a barn is most likely on a farm surrounded by acres of green pastures and no nearby neighbors so it is a great space to spend some of your budget on a really great band so you can turn up the music and let your hair down!

Winery / Vineyard
If a destination wedding sounds like your style, but you want a locale that doesn’t require your guests to get out their passport, a vineyard wedding is a great option to consider. The east coast boasts a bountiful array of wineries and with a winery setting, your guests will have plenty to do (and drink) during your wedding weekend. Some wineries might have their own on-site accommodations, or bed and breakfasts and other cozy hotels abound near wineries. Marrying at a vineyard means your guests will be treated to an impressive (and local) wine list for dinner and any other wedding weekend events. Have fun with your chosen venue and include tasting notes on your menu cards. You could even arrange a wine tasting for your guests as part of the wedding activities. A natural setting for wedding photos usually makes for some great shots, but using a vineyard as a backdrop adds an extra air of outdoor elegance to the photo shoot.
