The Request

To reserve a date for your ceremony, please contact Yolanda Tong at 781-283-2615 or at

Please note that approval process may take up to one week and that all reservations are not final until approval has been given by the College. 

In order to provide each couple and their guests a quality experience, please note that our primary wedding season is during the summer months. Weddings, however, may be booked during the academic year if they do not conflict with other campus events.  College events have priority over the scheduling of weddings and rehearsals.

Once your reservation has been made, the Wedding Coordinator will process your wedding contract which will be mailed to you to be completed and returned no later than THREE months from the date of your actual reservation.  The following will be included in your wedding contract:

Ø  A wedding reservation form.  Please complete all the information on your reservation form.  If you do not know your photographer and/or florist, please indicate “to be determined” on the paperwork and contact me at a later date once you know. Signatures of both spouses and officiant must be on the form before you send it in.  Your signatures verify that you have read and agreed to all policies as set forth by Wellesley College. A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required to confirm the date and time of the service. Full payment and completed wedding contract are due THREE months from the date you book your wedding with the Wedding Coordinator.

Ø  Request for Guest Chaplain/Public Official form (if applicable).  This form only needs to be returned only if you are using a guest chaplain/public official.   

Checks should be made payable to Wellesley College and sent to:
