What You Should Know

Prior to the wedding, you will work with the staff at Manchester Country Club to tour the facility and discuss menu selections and other party details. A clubhouse fee is required to reserve the space for weddings. On the day of your event, you will have the complete attention of the event staff, as your wedding will be the only one of the day. You have a total of six hours for your reception and both the wedding specialist and event manager will be on hand all day long for you.

When you first arrive at the Manchester Country Club, the bride and her attendants will have access to 400 square-foot suite where she can prepare for the ceremony. This room is equipped with a vanity, wrap-around mirrors, salon chairs and leather furnishings. After you exchange your vows on the terrace or before the magnificent fireplace in the clubhouse, your guests will enjoy a one-hour long hosted bar as part of each wedding package. Beverage and bar upgrades are available. Other basic wedding package offerings include a cheese and crudité display, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres and a three-course meal, including a vegetarian offering. The reception also includes a wedding cake and coffee service both after the meal and at the end of the reception. Your decorations also come as part of the wedding package. Your affair will be elegant with candle centerpieces, floor-length tablecloths with chair covers and sashes.

If you have additional ideas in mind, the Manchester Country Club wedding coordinator can help you upgrade your selections, which will help you avoid needing additional third-party vendors.

My July Wedding at Manchester Country Club was absolutely everything I had dreamed it would be and I couldn't have done it without Kelsey and her dedicated team. From my bridal shower, to rehearsal dinner, ceremony to reception Kelsey and her team were there for us at every... Read More point to make each event just as special. Its not often you find a venue that YOUR wedding is the only wedding of the day! As a bride it was very important to me to get ready onsite with all my girls and not feel rushed and the Manchester Country Club's bridal suite is like no other! We were allowed to arrive at any time and even enjoined an nice brunch spread while we got pampered. My hair and makeup vendors loved all the natural lighting and spacious beauty area! We booked the Grande package which included table linens, cake, 1 hour cocktail hour open bar plus many apps, a champagne toast for everyone and of course a lovely dinner. Even though this package is all inclusive you still are able to customize your options which was very important to me! Its the little things that go a long way with me, Extra meetings, special visits to the venue with photographers to scope out wedding day photo spots, walk through with my DJ to ensure our wedding slide show would work with both his equipment and the club's equipment, and even a dance rehearsal to make sure that my choreographed ballroom routine would work in the space...Kelsey never said no in fact she made every request happen! Going into the morning of my wedding I felt confident in Kelsey and her team I didn't have to worry or even think about all of the details I was just able to sit back relax and enjoy my day knowing I was in good hands. Wedding planning is a lot of work but it also should be a lot of fun. I can truly look back and say I had a blast planning my wedding and every little detail that I worked so hard at planning (I'm talking down to the little things like where I want each decoration placed, or not to put the dinner plate in front of my grandfather to give it to my grandmother, and for the champagne toast what members of my family not to give it to...stuff like that ALL happened as I requested it to be!)Since we live in New England and no matter what the time of year is you cannot predict the weather, so for me that meant back up plan if it poured out the day of my wedding i needed a venue that was just a beautiful inside as it was outside with lots of options to take pictures inside if needed. The grande staircase alone sold that for me! Plus they have these awesome white pillars outback that are covered. So if it rained you could stand under those, look like you are outside with a beautiful backdrop yet stay dray and still get amazing pictures! (Luckily we had a rain free day and got amazing pictures outside and even had a rainbow in the background! I'm thinking that's good luck!) I would 100% recommend this venue for any wedding!

Where to start, I planned my wedding in four months knew what I wanted and what I was looking for. As soon as I walked into MCC I knew that I had found the right venue. Not only is it a beautiful venue but the fact that everything was newly renovated and was clean just made it... Read More clear for me. Heather and Kelsey are absolutely amazing. They answered all my question and really helped me get organized for my wedding that was rapidly approaching.

It was the most organized event I had been to. The whole night flowed smoothly and never once felt rushed or unattended and neither did my guest. I cant begin to thank everyone at MCC enough for making my wedding such a magical night for me and my husband. Truly such great staff and amazing location with great scenery. I would highly recommend the MCC to any bride that is looking for that special venue and great coordinators to work with! Thanks again, The Hutnicks

We thought the food was delicious at the food tasting but then it was even better at the actual wedding! People were raving to my parents about how great everything was. We loved getting ready in the bridal suite and loved being one and only wedding of the day so we didn't have to rush.

Before heading to the church, I got ready with my bridesmaids the morning of the wedding in the newly renovated beautiful private suite upstairs at the MCC which was plenty of room for 5 bridesmaids, 2 moms, 2 hairdressers and 2 makeup artists. There were breakfast snacks, drinks and full service to the bar by the waiter that could be called from a push button from the room. The wedding party was able to spend time celebrating in the private suite after the ceremony and during cocktail hour which was serviced with a waiter for drinks and trays of hors d'oeuvres so we didn't have to miss out on any of the food! The entire staff throughout the whole reception was accommodating and so professional. The grounds were beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for pictures!

The building is old, but just wait until the newest renovations are finished next year! It'll be a knock-out for sure. The food, and event cost were excellent. The only thing that missed the mark was having trays of the signature cocktails out for arriving guests and the tray of appetizer and drinks for the wedding party once we arrived.

Marilyn really helped us with the entire planning process and answered all of our questions in a very timely manner.

They are real pros at what they do and, most importantly, they anticipate really well. The food was phenomenal—people are still telling my parents how great their dinner was—and the drinks were excellent as well. The tent was great and the dining room was set up so beautifully—full of candles, flowers in all the right places, and all of our little touches (escort card holders, guest book, family photos, sweets table, etc.) were all arranged with such care. We had a lot of personal touches that we added and Marilyn was kind enough to let us drop things off a few days ahead. We had our pictures taken on the golf course (you need a member to do so) and some of our absolute favorite shots are of us walking on a path through the trees. Overall, we were so very pleased with the MCC and would highly recommend to future brides in the area. There are lots of other choices in Southern NH but no one is as accommodating and professional as Marilyn, Scott, and their team at MCC!
