By now, there isn’t much that hasn’t been said about a wedding venue. Everywhere claims to be the secret to your special day, promising fairytale solutions whatever your needs. But here at Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center, we have the experience to back-up the hyperbole.
Our marble staircase is a perfect location for a romantic photoshoot.
First, there is the historic setting. Housed in the former American Optical Factory, our property melds classic Victorian redbrick design and the splendor of the nineteenth century with the extensive footprint required for an operation of its size. This means that brides and grooms of the present can let their imaginations go wild in a unique setting, without space restricting their dreams. We even have a grand marble staircase that is available for special photographs. Who says Cinderella is the stuff of Disney?
Large family? Popular at work? Not a problem, with 203 guest rooms, you can invite your Great Uncle Silas and have space for your boss to spend the night of the celebration. All rooms come with a modern en-suite, as well as free Wi-Fi and American Optical-themed, Do Not Disturb signs! Not enough? We also have a pillow menu, so if you don’t like the pillow on the bed you can call down to the front desk and ask for a back, side, anti-snore or hypoallergenic replacement.
With so many rooms at your disposal, you will also need a venue that can hold a party of that size. Our ballroom can fit 250 people at round tables, plus have space for a dance floor! And with wedding planners on hand, you can focus on the important part of your day – your wedding, while we focus on the timing and details.
Looking for a summer celebration? Our expansive grounds and courtyard make perfect settings for your wedding ceremony, reception, cocktail hour, and other important moments. Here, your options are unlimited and can be transformed to help you create the outdoor wedding of your dreams.
In the morning you will need something hearty to get you going, and our breakfast spread at Visions Restaurant won’t disappoint! Hot and cold, there is bound to something to suit all tastes. Finally, enter married life in good health by taking advantage of the facilities at Focus Fitness. From free weights to a squash court and swimming pool, our range of solutions means you can exercise in a way that suits your personal goals.
