I am seriously considering throwing out the idea of a conventional wedding, and just having an intimate wedding with just immediate family and close friends.
I really looooove the look of UpStairs on the Square in Cambridge. Has anyone looked at this place, or know if its expensive to rent?

I’ve never been to a wedding party there, but I have eaten there for brunch and it was delish. I think it would be a really cool place to have a wedding reception/party. I think it would be worth calling to check out.

This was the first place I looked at and I fell in LOVE with it! It was my dream wedding spot but sadly, it was just too expensive for us so we are going with something else (that is also wonderful).
We met with the owner to get a tour and she was wonderful. She took time to give us some wine and walk us around and answer all of our questions and then sat down with us to get an idea of our deam day. A few days later we got sent a few different proposals in different price ranges.
Basically, if you want to rent out BOTH floors for a nighttime wedding, you need to cover the cost of them closing the restaurant for that night, which depending on the time of year can be pretty pricey. They said they are busiest in the fall months, and then around graduation time (Harvard) and summertimes are actually slow for them. If you only want one floor, it drops the cost a bit. It becomes cheaper if you do a Saturday or Sunday afernoon as well.
Good luck! I think its just a beautiful space and would make the perfect setting for an unconventional and fantastic wedding 🙂
