If you aren’t careful, planning a wedding can be overwhelming. Hiring a professional wedding planner to take care of all the details for your ceremony and elegant wedding reception would simplify things, but this type of service can be expensive. If you want to do-it-yourself and take care of everything from choosing a reception hall in Milford to ordering wedding flowers in Framingham, your best bet is to get organized and make smart decisions. One way to lower costs and reduce stress is to host your Massachusetts wedding reception and ceremony at the same venue. You, your wedding party, and your guests can come to one location, eliminating costly transportation, parking issues, hectic schedules, and worries about weather and traffic.
Depending on the time of year, you can decide to have an outdoor ceremony and an indoor reception. When choosing a reception hall, make sure to ask about wedding ceremony options that you can incorporate into your plans. At The Crystal Room, we offer outdoor ceremonies at the beautiful Hopedale Pond, which is just 10 minutes down the road from our elegant wedding reception hall. Fees include everything from town permits to rehearsals, set up of chairs and coordination services with our event team. We also offer indoor ceremony options under our picturesque chandelier. This is an excellent idea for weddings planned for seasons when the weather can impact an outdoor setting or for those who don’t even want to take the chance.
Our outdoor ceremonies are set to begin an hour before your cocktail hour at our Massachusetts wedding reception hall begins. This allows plenty of time for the ceremony and for guests to make their way to the venue for the reception. Indoor ceremonies are on-site and are set to begin a half hour before your cocktail hour begins, providing enough time to perform the ceremony and transition to the reception program. Not sure which option would work best for you? Speak with one of our team members about everything from hiring local photographers and bands to getting delivery of custom cakes and wedding flowers in Framingham for your special day. Lean on our many years of experience and knowledge of local vendors to keep everything running smooth.
Custom Wedding Planning
Couples who are looking to simplify their wedding plans can also benefit from many of the other services available at The Crystal Room in Milford, MA. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for planning an elegant wedding reception and ceremony, so we offer custom wedding planning that will help you get all of the elements you want without breaking the bank. All weddings include a five-hour use of The Crystal Room, preparation with a personal coordinator, elegantly framed table numbers, floor-length ivory linens with your choice of napkin color, a champagne toast for all your guests, a four-course plated meal, complimentary food tasting for the couple, as well as cake cutting and cake enhancement services.
Each of the included items can be customized to match your theme, colors, and decor. We also have additional options that can be added a la carte to best suit your needs for a memorable Massachusetts wedding reception and ceremony. For example, we can transform the Murano Room into a private bridal suite for you and your bridesmaids, featuring a full-length mirror, chaise lounge, and private bathroom for make-up and hair. We can also offer overtime opportunities to extend your celebration if you require more than five hours. Open bars based on consumption, passed hors d’oeuvres, tiered beverage fountains, ambient uplighting, photo booth, chair covers and sashes, limousine service, a complete floral package, and much more can all be added to help simplify the planning process even further.
Benefits of Ceremony + Reception Planning
There are so many reasons to consider hosting your ceremony and reception with the same venue. If you don’t already have a religious venue or special location picked out to exchange your vows, The Crystal Room can help create the perfect backdrop for your ceremony. When choosing a reception hall, make sure there is enough room for all of your guests and space to feature all of the special events that you want to include on your special day.
The best way to determine if our elegant wedding reception hall will suit your needs is to schedule a tour of our facility. If you want to take advantage of the benefits of ceremony + reception planning, make sure to let our staff know in advance. We can take you to Hopedale Pond and show you examples of setups that we have done in the past for all-in-one celebrations.
