Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center is a wedding venue located in Southbridge, Massachusetts. This estate is nestled along the Quinebaug River, to provide soon-to-be-weds and their guests a relaxing, retreat-like atmosphere. Its contemporary decor meets seamlessly with its historic roots, to give romantic events a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.

Facilities and Capacity

This luxurious red-brick hotel was originally built 160 years ago, as home to American Optical Company, and restored in 2000 to celebrate its historic background. Original structures are featured throughout the space, including the clock tower, grand spiraling staircase, and hand-carved marble fireplace. Couples will have multiple indoor and outdoor spaces to host their nuptial events, whether they dream of an intimate gathering of 20 or extravagant receptions of 300. The Crystal Ballroom acts as a blank canvas, with a high ceiling, minimal decor, and neutral colors that can match any theme. Their onsite restaurant, Visions, offers modern, eye-catching architecture, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lush courtyard. Visitors that dream of an open-air celebration will have an array of outdoor options throughout the grounds. Their spacious lawn, known as The Green, gives soon-to-be-weds unlimited options to place their wedding arch, and offers flourishing trees as their natural backdrop. In addition, the courtyard surrounds guests with strings of bistro lights and a crackling fire pit surrounded by relaxing lounge furniture. Its stained concrete grounds and various parasols give gatherings a modern, relaxed aesthetic. You, your wedding party, and your out-of-state guests will have 203 guest rooms to choose from, with various relaxing amenities to relieve any prenuptial jitters. Ample parking is available onsite, with wheelchair accessibility to ensure all your guests can enjoy your special day.

Services Offered

Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center offer all-inclusive packages, to help soon-to-be-weds feel welcome and cared for from their rehearsal dinner to their day-after brunch. Tables, chairs, linens, and dinnerware will be available, along with their collection of wedding decor. The dedicated onsite staff will be ready to assist you in your journey to the altar. Servers, bartenders, and their event planner will be present on the big day, to make sure everything goes according to schedule.

    Couldn't be happier or more gay

    We are an LGBT couple. We decided to hold our ceremony and reception at the Southbridge Hotel. The staff was excellent in helping with the planning. They were always friendly and kept the event on schedule. We received many comments from our guests on the exceptional service. People felt pampered in a good way. The food is absolutely excellent for the price point relative to comparable venues in the region. We looked at 5 hotels or more in the area, and this really was a notch above the competition and at a lower price than more well-known venues. In the end, with all the fees the venue cost us about $15k including the $2500 open bar tab and $500 in after party snacks for 90 people to attend, and this was during peak fall wedding season on a Saturday.

    Lisa and her team created a warm and personalized atmosphere for our themed wedding rehearsal dinner and after party. The conference center has beautiful amenities and picturesque spots for wedding photos (i.e. marble staircase).
