Weddings Overview

Weddings at Wellesley

The Ceremony

Ceremonies at Wellesley can be booked in Houghton Chapel, the Multifaith Center and the Alumnae Hall Event Lawn. Reservations and arrangements for all ceremonies can be made directly through the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.

Our summer wedding season takes place between mid-June and mid-August. Weddings may be booked at other times throughout the year, however, College events may preclude some of these dates being available. 


Venues are available for ceremony use by members of the Wellesley College community (faculty, staff, students, alumnae and their immediate relatives) at a discounted affiliate rate. Those without an affiliation to Wellesley College are permitted to schedule a wedding at a different rate.

We welcome couples of all sexualities and gender identities to be married at Wellesley College.

The Reception

Space for an on-campus reception is available at the Wellesley College Club. Reservations for space at the Wellesley College Club must be made directly with them by calling (781) 283-2700.

Please note that reserving the Chapel, Multifaith Center or Alumnae Hall Event Lawn DOES NOT also reserve the Wellesley College Club. For example, if you have reserved the Chapel, you must contact the Wellesley College Club directly to then reserve space for the reception.

Receptions may also be held on the Alumnae Hall Event Lawn for an additional fee through the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life. Renters of this space must supply their own chairs and/or equipment needed for their reception, including a generator if needed, as there are no electrical outlets.
