So, you want an indoor wedding. Whether you are planning your ceremony through the cold months of a New England winter, or you plan on marrying in a religious space, or you are simply uninterested in an outdoor venue, the indoor wedding feels right for you.

There are many types of indoor weddings, and most allow you the same creativity and freedom of expression as an outdoor wedding would offer.

Venue Options

Cambridge is a city filled with beautiful religious venues, hotels, and restaurants with their very own indoor spaces.

Couples seeking religious venues may want to look into our Religious Venues guide, where we provide further information on Christ Church Cambridge, First Church Cambridge, First Parish Cambridge, and Swedenborg Chapel, all beautiful indoor spaces where you can celebrate your love amongst family and friends.

Rialto Restaurant and Bar and The Harvest Restaurant both offer a variety of spaces that secure the privacy of you and your wedding guests while maintaining the restaurant atmosphere.

Finally, many Cambridge hotels feature grand ballrooms, like the Hyatt Regency Cambridge’s Charles View Ballroom, President’s Ballroom, and Empress Ballroom.

The weather

The simple fact is, while the Charles River and other Cambridge landmarks make for gorgeous wedding settings, the New England weather could turn your plans upside down without warning.

By choosing an indoor venue like the Skyline Suites in the Royal Sonesta Hotel, you can appreciate the beauty of the city views without subjecting yourself to the rule of nature. This means you can also pick a wedding date from any season, without worrying about humidity in the summer or snow in the winter.

Temperature-controlled hotels and restaurants will allow you to make the most of any season, rain or shine. And don’t forget, most traditions declare that it’s good luck to see rain on your wedding day, as rain symbolizes fertility, cleansing, and rebirth, just as you begin your new life with your partner.
