About

On WeddingWire since 2013

Whether you鈥檙e looking for sophisticated, indoor elegance or upscale, outdoor chic, The Villa in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts is host to three unique and distinctive spaces perfect for your wedding day. With separate ceremony options, you can exchange vows under the charming outdoor pergola or transform a ballroom into a sacred ceremony space. No matter the season, the Grand Ballroom, Madera Ballroom, and The Tent offer diverse and captivating options for every taste and style.

Our event minimums at The Villa start at $12,000 and will vary based on the season, day of the week and ballroom you choose. Please keep in mind details such as guest count and menu selections will affect the overall cost. An event minimum is the agreed upon amount you will pay for food and beverage for your event.

Grand Ballroom | Contemporary Chic: Dance the night away under the Grand Ballroom鈥檚 gold-accented ceiling and sparkling chandeliers. Sip cocktails and mingle with your guests among the glamorous opalescent walls and impressive, a custom-built bar in the expansive cocktail space. A dramatically-lit ballroom with modern amenities, newly-updated light fixtures, and an enchanting fourteen-foot linear fireplace creates the perfect ambiance for a dazzling affair of up to 280 guests.

Madera Ballroom | Rustic Elegance: The Madera Ballroom exudes charm with its striking, white, shiplap ceiling, dark wood exposed beams, and stately fireplaces at each end of the room. This one-of-a-kind, French-inspired ballroom radiates romance with a modern flair and Tudor-style windows. The Madera Ballroom鈥檚 picturesque and versatile space can be transformed from ceremony to reception easily for up to 220 guests, making it an ideal venue for any couple.

The Tent | Garden Romance: Ensconced by a posh garden and breathtaking grounds, The Tent is the ultimate outdoor space for a romantic evening under the stars with 250 of your nearest and dearest. Enjoy cocktails al fresco by the crackling fire pit and cozy seating area on the outskirts of the tent. Then tear up the dance floor under the dramatically backlit, draped ceiling with chic chandeliers and twinkling lights.

    Amazing experience

    We got married at the Villa this May and we cannot say enough great things about our experience. Our Event Producer, Meridith Kelly, made the planning process of our wedding so easy and so enjoyable. She had every detail perfect for our wedding day and helped us throughout our planning process with recommendations and answered all our questions right away.
    I really did not have to stress about our wedding day at all because I knew everything was taken care of. (I even completely messed up our table numbers and Meridith came to the rescue to fix it the day of and the tables looked beautiful!) We had our ceremony outside and our reception in the Madera Ballroom which was absolutely perfect for our wedding size and the pictures came out amazing.
    We also cannot say enough great things about the food! It was all perfect and we got so many compliments on the appetizers, main meals, and late night snacks. We also loved our Bridal Assistant, Brooke, who made sure my husband and I got a separate tray of all of our food and drinks in the bridal suite so that we got to have some of everything. She took care of us all night from helping with the dress, photos, and getting us drinks!
    We are so happy with how our wedding day went at the Villa and were so happy to have Meridith as our Event Producer. We would absolutely recommend the Villa to anyone looking for a venue.

    Absolute perfect

    I can't recommend this place enough!! The grand ballroom was the perfect place for my husband and I to get married. We had a gorgeous indoor ceremony in front of the large fire display in addition to cute rainy day picture under the covered archway and in the garden area.
