Indian wedding ceremony Boston Marriott Newton

Boston Marriott Newton

The Boston Marriott Newton features 2 ballrooms and two outdoor spaces – ideal for Indian wedding weekends. The Grand Ballroom seats approximately 500 guests with a dance floor and the Commonwealth Ballroom seats approximately 300 guests with a dance floor.

And the Riverside Lawn and the Pavilion each seat approximately 200 guests in rounds. Host your garba, mehndi or sangeet in the Pavilion or one of the Ballrooms. The next day have a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Riverside Lawn, followed by cocktails and the reception in the Grand Ballroom or the Commonwealth Ballroom (depending on your guest count).

Above: Notice the blue chairs in the photo of the Commonwealth Ballroom dressed for an event. Those are the hotel’s standard banquet chairs that come with all indoor events. And the white folding chairs come with outdoor and Pavilion events.

Now scroll to the photos above from an Indian wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom. You’ll see that they opted to rent chiavari chairs instead of using the hotel’s chairs. Note you can absolutely do that – and you will incur the rental cost. Chiavari chairs typically cost anywhere from $5-$10 per chair.
