What better way to chase away those wintry blues than by thinking about the beautiful colors and warmer temperatures that the upcoming Spring wedding season has to offer! As the month of March approaches, we are counting down the days until our spring wedding season begins!

Imagine a day of pure sunlight, annual flowers beginning to bloom and the trees around you budding a vibrant green color!

Spring weddings provide us with a variety of color palettes and themes to choose from for your special day. Whether you are a pastel color lover at heart, or delighted by the idea of having “garden themed” décor (see: mason jars, mercury and bud vases!), the Canoe Club Ballroom is a wedding venue that provides you with the opportunity to bring your vision to life!

Here are just a few of the many color palettes, themes and ideas we have had the pleasure of seeing from our past couples’ weddings! Perhaps it will help and give you some ideas for your own big day!




*Whether you decide to incorporate your wedding color into our three-tiered floating candle lit centerpiece, or showcase your colors and/or theme through the beauty of fresh flowers--your wedding decor will be sought throughout your entire wedding venue for your guests to enjoy! Candles, mercury vases, bud vases and mason jars are a great way to enhance and accent your centerpieces! 


Table Linens & Décor:


*What better way to enhance your wedding look, than by incorporating your color through linens and decor! Whether your wedding package includes our elegant chair covers and sashes, or you love the look of the silver chiavari chairs--your decorative options are endless here at the CCB! 


Outdoor Ceremonies:


*Embrace the essence of the Spring season with our beautiful on-site ceremonies! We don't know about you, but we cannot wait  for the first sight of Spring to appear!! :)

As the excitement of your recent engagement and selecting your wedding venue begins to set in, you find yourself being asked the ever so popular question:

“Are you going to send out save the dates?!”

We say YES!!

“Save the Dates” not only provide your guests with the opportunity to pre-plan for your special day, but it also creates a sense of excitement within your guests as they begin to count down the months until your big day!

Why do we love the idea of sending out save the dates? Here are just a few reasons!

1.) What better way to inform all of your friends and family of your big day than with an adorable picture of the two of you?! This could be your favorite photograph of the two of you or from your engagement shoot with your photographer! (We definitely suggest setting up an e-shoot with your photographer as this will help build an instant relationship with your vendor professional!)

2.) You no longer have to “wait” to inform your friends and family that you would like for them to be apart of your special day until a couple months before with your formal wedding invitations!

3.) Many couples will not only incorporate their wedding date and a photo into their “save the dates”, but also their wedding location! (West Bridgewater, Massachusetts!) This helps guests to begin their pre-planning with regards to travel arrangements and hotel accommodations if necessary.  

4.) Many couples will also include a link to their wedding website for their guests to enjoy all of their up-to-date wedding related information prior to the big day! Wedding websites have become such a popular trend as it allows your guests the opportunity of learning a little bit more about the two of you and of course, your big day! From direct links to hotel accommodations, your ceremony and reception information, wedding party members, to your proposal and love story—save the dates and wedding websites go a long way hand-in-hand!

We are always happy to provide any suggestions to our happy couples at anytime, so please don’t hesitate to ask us! :)

With the brand new blog starting on our website, we thought it was appropriate to write one about the elegance and all the variety of options our brand new website holds for customers. It has been only a few weeks, but our brand new site has gained a fury of positive reviews. It is important as a company and especially a wedding venue to truly provide an online presence that matches our Canoe Club Ballroom facilities.

We have made it our goal to provide wedding searchers with all the information that we could possibly provide to them. One of the first things we want all website viewers to check out is our in depth photo galleries. We have an extensive amount of photos that include galleries for different categories including the courtyard, outdoor ceremony, the interior, transportation, spring weddings, summer weddings, and everything in between. This provides users with photos of a variety of different wedding themes and specifics.

Our second big feature our new website processes is our in depth wedding options. We are proud to provide prices and pictures of our entire menu. From Hors D’oeuvres through Dinner and into dessert, you can see what we offer. Our wedding options don’t stop at cuisine choices, we want everyone to dig into more information about wedding options, wedding pricing, preferred venders, uplighting & more.

If you know anyone across Massachusetts and the South Shore of the state that may be  looking for their dream wedding reception, suggest for them to check out our site. For more information about Canoe Club Ballroom and if our website captivates you, we have many open house dates where you can get a tour of our courtyard, grand ballroom  while setup for a wedding that is occurring that same day!
