My husband and I got married this past weekend at the Bedford Village Inn. When planning our wedding, we had decided that we wanted a small wedding with close friends and family at a small park in the area and then wanted to treat them all to a fantastic dinner at a nice restaurant. We started to look around to various restaurants in the Manchester/Bedford area and decided on Bedford Village Inn based on good experiences as diners in the past. We could not have been happier with how everything went.
First of all, Melissa, the event planner for the BVI, was courteous and professional throughout the planning. She never tried to sell us more than what we wanted and was organized throughout our time with her. We settled on renting the overlook room and have a three course dinner which allowed our 20 guests different options of what they wanted to order. We also requested our own bartender for an open bar, which they provided at no additional cost.
The night of the wedding, our dinner was supposed to start at 6pm. Our ceremony didn't take as long as originally thought and many of our guests were there around 5:15. The management allowed us all to have a drink in the Tavern while we waited for the room to be finished.
The room itself was perfect. It was private and cozy, as well as decorated beautifully. They had an amazing spread of appetizers (which we had selected beforehand) and our cake was on display as we walked in. We chose to have one large table so that we could all sit together since it was such a small wedding party and our place settings were very nice.
The food was fantastic. We were able to pick three dinner options beforehand and have our guests order once they were seated, as well as two salad options and three desserts. Everyone raved about the food and the wedding cake was great as well.
Last, but certainly not least, the wait staff was wonderful! Everyone we came in contact with was kind and courteous. They did a great job being there when needed but giving us our privacy so we could have a great time.
Overall, I couldn't recommend BVI enough. The entire experience was everything we had hoped for and we are so happy we decided to host our wedding here.

My wedding at the BVI could have not been more perfect. I had only a little over 2.5 weeks to plan my wedding due to family circumstances and the BVI was there every step of the way being so accommodating to everything. The day of the wedding, Patty (from the BVI) was at my side all night making sure everything went smoothly and if I needed something it was there. I couldn't have thanked them enough! Highly recommend the BVI to anyone looking at venues.

We just had our wedding at the BVI last Friday and we are still glowing with how great everything was. From the first day, the BVI was willing to work with our budget and Stephanie Dolloff was amazing! She was willing to give advice and ideas and was always easy to reach. We were able to book appointments on the weekends when needed to go over everything that we needed and our questions were always answered. The day of my wedding was amazing! Bree Warren and Patty were so accommodating. I made almost everything for the wedding - centerpieces, favors, etc. and they were able to set everything up just as I had imagined it. The day went off without a hitch and with so much love and support around us. The food was AMAZING and many of our guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We loved that we were able to keep the party going in the milk room after the reception ended at midnight and that our closest friends and family were all able to stay in the same place. Over all, I would recommend the BVI to any bride looking for a rustic\chic wedding at a wonderful cost, you won't regret it!
