THREE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND WHILE CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING VENUE

Congratulations on your engagement! You're probably thinking, "what is my next step?" CHOOSING YOUR VENUE! There are many things to take into account while planning a wedding. Our wedding professionals at The Commons 1854 have constructed a few things to keep in mind while choosing your dream wedding venue.  

FITTING YOUR VIBE

When you first walk into a venue, your heart may sink, an overwhelming feeling may take over and you may be jumping for joy or…there may be a red swirled carpet that completely turns you off. These are all details to pay attention to when searching for your wedding venue.  They say that venue shopping is almost comparable to buying a home or even dating! When you know, you just know! You should feel as this place could potentially be your “home for a day”.  If you feel comfortable, then your guests should feel comfortable too. It is important to take-into-account your “gut feeling”.  Of course, you have been dreaming about a specific theme or color scheme for only your ENTIRE life, but a venue’s vibes should complement your personalities.  Are the bare bones of the venue naturally beautiful or would you have to bring in additional décor to jazz it up? How does this affect your budget? If you are looking for a classic, elegant, historic, marble-laden hall, The Commons 1854 is your match.  If a casual, Barn wedding is your “jam”, do not fret, The Commons is located RIGHT next to the Gould Barn (pictured below).  How amazing is this? You can capture rustic, barn-themed photos while celebrating in the most sophisticated space. To make a long story, short…we recommend staying open to possibilities because your childhood dream venue, may not give off the vibes that you thought.  Keep an open, positive mind and trust your judgment.

CUISINE 

It is very important to ask questions about the quality of a venue’s food. Are their Chefs classically trained?  Is everything made in-house or are there items that are frozen? At The Commons 1854, our farm-to-table approach is made fresh on the day of your event.  All our Chefs are classically trained.  Our Executive Chef, Frank Martino has even studied in Italy.  Chef Frank goes as far as roasting his own coffee beans, blending homemade Gelato and nurturing his own honey bees.  Being an Italian, family-owned business, The Commons 1854 prides itself on hospitality and the highest-quality of cuisine. Buon appetito at The Commons 1854! 

 

REVIEWS

Client reviews speak for themselves.  Let the reviews do the talking! While meeting with a venue, you can tell the sincerity and energy that the representative may give off.  If the venue’s consultant lights up while speaking about details, you will know the reviews are true.  The Commons 1854 has proven to be a top-contender in Boston’s North Shore wedding venues.  With over eighteen years of catering experience, The Commons 1854 produces the highest quality service and expertise.  For the last ten years, The Commons has been presented a countless number of awards including The Knot’s “Best Of Weddings Award” and Wedding Wire’s “Couples Choice Award.”  Before taking the time to book a tour, check the reviews!
