So, I’m already married, but am helping out a friend of mine who is trying to find a venue that can hold 300 people around the Boston area. If it’s a little bit further out (maybe less than 1 hour), I think that would work too? She found a caterer that she really likes already, so all we would need is the space!
She’s looking into SpringStep, but can anyone else recommend a venue that can accommodate such a large number of guests?
Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks!!

The Cyclorama can hold that amount and then some. The acoustics can be a bit tricky but can work with it. Its like $5 for rent I think. There is also, the Park Plaza Castle but, it needs some TLC when you get in there. Good Luck!

The Castle at the Park Plaza looks amazing when it is decorated…BUT it is a blank slate….but I have seen numerous pics of functions there (I can have someone email me some if you would like to see) & when it’s decorated it is gorgeus…..uplighting there is fantastic.
Also, parking there is pricey…

thank you so much for your suggestions!! Both Cyclorama and the Castle at Park Plaza look amazing!

I know your friend already has a caterer, but the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA has a gorgeous ballroom that seats 300. They have pretty reasonable packages too (can’t bring in own caterer, though). I’ve been to a number of weddings there that were gorgeous. I think the Georgetown Club (in Georgetown, remarkably!) also holds 300 and is amazing, but you have to use their catering too. I’ll keep my eyes out, though.

A friend of mine is getting married at Granite Links in Quincy (about 15 mins from Boston) and from my conversations with her, it is my understanding that is the only venue in the area with that capacity.
My friend is using her own caterer, too.
