Bedford Village Inn...this place was FABULOUS! I was privileged to work with Nicolette for my rehearsal dinner and the food was OUTSTANDING. We had their pass h’orderves and seated dinner meal. They were even accommodating enough to let us arrive an hour late since our wedding rehearsal ran later than expected. The food was beyond delicious, the overlook room was incredible and the staff was exceptional. The team we worked with carried their weight and went above and beyond for their duties. They were such a stunning team to work with and I was so happy with the rehearsal dinner. It was a great springboard for our wedding weekend! Sincerely, Gina Crane
The Bedford Village Inn made my wedding super special and really added the special touches that made it a magical evening. We served the chicken and salmon, and each dish was incredible. The staff was on top of every little detail and they even assigned a person whose sole job was to take care of the bride/groom on their special day and make sure we had everything we needed. If you're looking for a hotel that will make your special day magical and has tons of twinkling lights, look no further.
We loved the Bedford Village Inn! We knew we wanted a more intimate wedding and were thrilled to learn about the Overlook Room! We were able to have the same BVI experience with only 40 guests and without the big price tag! Even with our smaller event, Megan and Nicolette made us feel just as important and were so prompt in answering all of our questions and requests. The food, the staff and the venue were all so perfect, I wouldn't have changed a thing!
The Bedford Village Inn created the most perfect wedding celebration that we could have asked for! From touring the beautiful property to the tasting and the days leading up to the ceremony, everyone that we worked with surpassed our expectations. The planning process was done in an efficient timeline, with all of our questions answered throughout at every step. Being a planner with attention to detail, I appreciated all of the notes taken throughout, like food prepared certain ways or requesting alternate wines for table service. The property is gorgeous and well maintained, and all of our guests were able to stay onsite at the beautiful Grand hotel. Our photos came our beautifully! The food at all locations was exceptional, and every meal was cooked perfectly and kept warm throughout the day, and we enjoyed a delicious brunch the morning after. The service staff was attentive and courteous, and the timeline went seamlessly! Everything surpassed our expectations!
I can't even put into words how great the Bedford Village Inn was for our wedding venue. The food was outstanding, everyone thought it was beautiful and they were so hands on and orgranized! I highly recommend them!
Meghan and her team were absolutely amazing for our January 2017 wedding! We had a moderately smooth planning process. The venue itself is stunning, the guests raved about the venue and food! They exceeded our expectations the day of the wedding. There was a snowstorm and our ceremony started late and the team was able to push back dinner to ensure we had enough time for photos and a cocktail hour! Totally recommend for your special day!
BVI are pros at what they do. My husband and I picked them for their food reviews and excellent service in terms of all the planning and correspondence. We were a little worried since when we did our tasting the food was just average. When it counted though - they definitely came through, everything day of tasted amazing. Melissa Quinn-Samaras was amazing to work with for planning (super responsive and professional) and Samantha and Mackenzie did a great job day of. We received so many compliments from our guests and could not be happier with our selections. One odd thing is that we had a two tier wedding cake and some additional sheet cakes to serve our guests and they only used the sheet cakes and not the actual wedding cake. The entire thing was send home with us (meant to serve 60). Not sure what went wrong there as I had discussed that the cake was to be cut and served and I confirmed with my baker those same instructions were provided. That was only one small blip in an otherwise perfect day. Highly Recommend.
My daughter's wedding reception was at Bedford Village Inn on April 22, 2017 and it was fantastic! I was a little worried because we were having 191 people but it was great - not too crowded at all. The staff so stealth, so professional. Cocktails were outside, even though it was 45 degrees, and with heaters it was absolutely fine. Melissa Samaras was amazing - guided us with patience and caring every step of the way - a true professional. The food was superb. Everyone raved about it. I can't say enough about this venue...it was the best!
We held our wedding at the BVI last month and I still cannot get over how perfect our day was!!! From the moment we stepped on property to tour with Megan, to the morning we checked out, everything was flawless. We hosted our rehearsal dinner in the restaurant, and then held the post wedding breakfast (which was included!) in the Tavern the next morning, so were able to spend the entire weekend on property. It made it so easy for our guests, and everyone was able to just RELAX. Our guests raved about the property, and how beautiful everything is. The food is DELICIOUS. I am still getting compliments! Mackenzie and Samantha were amazing – there for anything that we needed throughout the evening, making sure we always had a drink in hand...and that we actually took time to enjoy our dinner! They set up everything just as I had envisioned. I cannot thank the BVI staff enough for making our day a dream come true. I just wish I could go back in time to enjoy it all over again!
We had the most amazing experience at the Bedford Village Inn! We could not be more pleased with our entire reception. The grounds are gorgeous and the Great Hall is breathtaking. Melissa was AMAZING to work with through all of our planning. On the day of our Wedding Sam and Mackenzie were there to take care of anything that we needed, including fixing my dress when my train ripped (Thank you, over and over). The food was beyond impressive, we have received so many compliments, and the accommodations represent New England in the most luxurious way. My Husband and I could not be happier that we chose the BVI. They have everything that you need all on one property.
I had polar opposite experiences between the Tavern for my rehearsal dinner and the Inn for the wedding, hence the low rating. Let's start with the good: The ceremony and reception at the Inn were beautiful and seamless. Sam stayed nearby the entire time and made sure we had everything we needed. Our guests had an amazing time. Absolutely zero complaints about my experience with the Inn and the event staff. The Tavern is a different story, though. My family had booked the upstairs room until 9pm, and were planning on meeting more friends at the Bonfire afterwards. I learned later that there were complaints about us being noisy, which apparently led the staff to believe that we were all over served. When we eventually moved downstairs to the bonfire, I (the bride) went up to the bar to get a drink and was told that I was being cut off. This was not only ridiculous - I was dead sober- but also just terrible customer service. Who cuts off the bride at her own rehearsal dinner? When my parents approached the manager to ask what was going on, he proceeded to kick my entire party out of the Bonfire and call the police. It was all completely disastrous, upsetting, and unwarranted. So basically, if you plan on having any fun or joy at your rehearsal dinner, or if your family is boisterous like mine, spend your money elsewhere. Have your wedding at the Inn, but avoid the restaurant.
My husband and I got married at the BVI this December. Leading up to the big day their team was so organized. We worked mostly with Megan who was hands down amazing. She was always available, quick to answer any question and so genuinely nice. The day of we had an event manager and a bridal assistant who also did an amazing job. I did not notice one issue or flaw. The BVI is so professional and organized it will keep you at ease the whole day and months leading up to the event. Since our wedding was in December, the space was beautifully decorated for the holiday season. Everyone loved the food! It was also great where the majority of the wedding could stay on the property. I would highly recommend the Bedford Village Inn to anyone!
We cannot say enough of how incredible BVI treated us leading up to, during and after our wedding day! They are incredibly easy to work with, always available and willing to answer any and all questions you may have, and are SO nice!! We felt very lucky to work with Megan and her team! All of our guests couldn't stop commenting on how fantastic the food was, how beautiful the venue was, and everyone had a blast there! We'd absolutely recommend BVI to anyone!
From the moment we toured BVI I knew this was the place my husband and I were going to get married. Melissa and the rest of the staff put on a FLAWLESS day. Melissa's attention to detail was so appreciated and she really helped us have the wedding of our dreams. The food was phenomenal and the guests were so impressed with how gorgeous the rooms they stayed in were. I literally didn't have to stress about one thing!
My husband and I got married at the BVI in September. The moment I stepped on the grounds of the Bedford Village Inn, I knew that it was the perfect location to celebrate our big day. The old NH charm and the grounds in full bloom made for beautiful pictures and a perfect cocktail hour. The reception hall has a rustic element that radiates with elegance. We worked with Melissa for all the details up until the wedding, and she was very prompt to respond, knowledgeable and helpful. She was a pleasure to work with. She made sure Mackenzie (our day of coordinator) was filled in with everything that was planned - and she executed the day to perfection. The food was incredible! We are still getting compliments on how wonderful the food was! From starting the wedding planning process to the week after the wedding, the Bedford Village Inn was respectful, prompt and extremely gracious. We made the best decision to have our reception here and we had the perfect day! Thank you!
Had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on site. Everything was so wonderful and the staff went above and beyond. So attentive and understand of our needs, it was magical!
My husband and I got married at the BVI back in April and it was by far the most perfect day all because of how great the BVI is and how accommodating the entire staff is! They made everything so easy for us during the planning months up to our big day. Megan was amazing to deal with and extremely patient with our many questions and never once made us feel like we were a hassle to deal with. She ensured we had every thing we wanted on our wedding day, and even let us make a couple of menu changes for both our wedding and rehearsal dinner. Choosing to get married at the BVI was the BEST wedding decision we could have made, and we have absolutely nothing bad to say about the venue and the entire staff. The staff was absolutely amazing to us and to all of our guests both at our rehearsal dinner as well as the night of our wedding. As if everything else wasn't enough, they even surprised us with a bottle of champagne along with their signature chocolate bag as a nice touch when we went to our bridal suite when the night was over. We would highly recommend the BVI to anyone looking to have a stunningly unique and beautiful wedding venue, as well as the most accommodating staff to deal with on one of the biggest days of your life!
The Bedford Village Inn is phenomenal! Through the whole wedding planning process all the way up to the actual day they were accommodating, professional, and attentive to everything, I have a type A personality and the Bedford Village Inn really exceeded my expectations of a wedding venue. Melissa Samaras is who I worked with throughout the whole process and she was always very quick to answer emails and phone calls with any question I may have had no matter how small or silly. I never felt as though I was a bother when I was in touch many times throughout the day/week. When I was overwhelmed Melissa was very calming and understanding. On the actual wedding day the entire staff was so professional! They made sure everything was as planned and were very attentive in order to make the day perfect! The bridal attendant was such a sweetheart and really helped throughout the whole process. She even helped my sister bustle my dress (it was complicated)! The food was delicious. My guests were very happy! I can't say enough about how amazing this venue was! I absolutely love it!
What can I say, the Bedford Village Inn was absolute perfection! It shows that they have had many many years of experience doing weddings. From our initial meeting with Melissa to the wedding day working with Mackenzie the staff was outstanding. Every little email I sent to Melissa with questions or concerns she promptly responded ensuring the BVI would handle it (and they did!). I could go on and on but the day of the wedding, the servers were so accommodating, my husband and I were given our own personal server who helped with anything from bustling my dress, to making sure we had our drinks fresh, to leaving a chocolate bag and champagne in our wedding suite. The addition of the new building, The Grand, was perfect for our guests. They really enjoyed the beautiful rooms, pool, and breakfast.
My husband and I got married at the BVI on January 2. We couldn't have had a better experience. The preparation went so smoothly. The BVI was decorated beautifully. Everyone (including us) had a blast! The food was amazing. The BVI is such a unique wedding venue and is an awesome place for a winter wedding.
Magical!Reviewed on 12/08/2015 Katie S
The BVI is a MAGICAL place for a wedding. It is so beautiful on it's own, we never had to worry about any decorating and simple flowers on the tables were all we needed. The service was impeccable, food was delicious, and they are so helpful at organizing and taking care of the night! Megan, who helped us coordinate over the year, was so helpful and accomadating!
So many things went wrong. The main being the day of our wedding we found out that our wedding planner does not work on Saturday's or Sunday's. And no, the wedding planner did not tell us this, even though we worked with only her through the year and half of planning. A random person who worked there, the morning of my wedding, told me this when I asked where she was. So please imagine all of things that went wrong from there and please note my ZERO stars. Unfortunately the text space here isn't long enough to describe everything- but I did fit it in YELP and TRIPADVISOR.
Amazing venue! From start to finish, the amount of thought and care that went in was wonderful. The wedding coordinator was great, the staff and servers were polite and seemed genuinely happy to be there, and the venue itself was gorgeous. Two thumbs up. Thank you BVI!
FairytaleReviewed on 8/16/2015 Kenna S
The BVI is a total dream to have a wedding reception. Despite the fact that it rained, we had an incredible evening inside the great hall. The staff are so attentive and know what you need before you say it. The coordinators are so kind, helpful, and thoughtful. All of our guests kept commenting on how gorgeous the venue is and we couldn't agree more! The night ended with an amazing presentation at the bridal suite with rose petals, slices of our cake, a chocolate box (YUM!), a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, handwritten notes from the staff, and chocolate chip cookies next to our bed. AMAZING! Memories from this beautiful venue will remain forever.
My husband and I were married at St. Anselm College in April 2015. When we began our reception venue search, we looked at a handful of places close by. Bedford Village Inn was the clear winner because of the unique setting and the abundance of experience they have with weddings and events in general. From the time you book an appointment to take a look, it’s clear that BVI has their act together. I am a very organized person, so I appreciated that BVI always fit in with my high expectations. They always had an answer for every question and kept the planning process running smoothly for the entire 14 months we had our wedding booked. We were provided with a comprehensive packet containing all package information (menu, alcohol, extras), a timeline of milestones with BVI, a list of “what to expect” on the day-of, and more! The final details appointment held several weeks before the wedding was absolutely fantastic and helped to set some of our anxiety about the details at ease. Megan Lawrence, the Wedding Coordinator, was extremely responsive and always a pleasure to speak with on the phone or via email. About a month before the wedding, we were speaking on a weekly basis. She never made me feel like my questions were silly or that she didn’t have time for me. Within five minutes of meeting her when we dropped off décor, my parents concluded that “she is perfect for this job.” They are right! On the morning of the wedding, Megan herself was helping to set up the reception and was very helpful in assisting me with some last minute details. Bree, the Event Manager, was also a pleasure. She helped with the room layout and seating chart at our final details appointment. She was present for the event set-up and through the entire reception. We found BVI to be pretty comparable in price to some other venues in the area, perhaps costing us a bit more in the end. Remember, when it comes to booking vendors for your wedding, you get what you pay for! BVI was worth every penny. If we had to do it all again, we wouldn’t change a thing!!
