The Villa at Ridder Country Club
On WeddingWire since 2013
Whether you’re 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’s 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’s 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.
