Planning a Wedding with a Short Engagement?

Planning a wedding in less than a year can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to start. Willowdale Estate has everything you need to expedite the planning process for your wedding day. See why we’re the perfect wedding venue for a short term wedding booking.

One of the toughest parts of wedding planning is deciding which venue is right for you. This process can be made easier by deciding which venues fulfill the most of your needs. Willowdale Estate is well-equipped to help you plan and execute your big day through all stages - from booking to seeing you off as newlyweds. If you're looking for beautiful surroundings, heartfelt hospitality, and exquisite cuisine, Willowdale Estate may be the best fit for your venue!

Our planning process starts with an in-depth tour of the estate and an overview of our all-inclusive packages from our sales team. We'll walk you through step by step of how your day will look. Planning a destination wedding? No problem! Take the virtual tour of our property.

Being an all-inclusive venue, one of the most valuable aspects of booking with Willowdale Estate is our on-site catering and beverage package. Choose from our refined yet approachable menu, or you can work with our team to design your own to accommodate any dietary needs. In addition to our catering, all tables, chairs, place settings, and staff are included with your package.

The events team at Willowdale Estate is made up of seasoned coordinators who can help bring your wedding vision to life. They will assist you through the planning process and make sure everything runs smoothly the day of your wedding. Choose from our curated list of wedding processional for all your vendor needs. Already have somebody specific in mind? Not a problem, our venue is accepting of outside vendors as long as they are insured. If you find yourself overwhelmed with the planning process, we also offer a full-service planning package to take away the stress. 

As an added bonus, our sister property, Briar Barn Inn, offers room blocks and event space for rehearsal dinners and/or post-wedding brunches. Our 30-room inn is located just 15 minutes north of Willowdale Estate in Rowley, Massachusetts. 

Whether it is in one of the many historic rooms of our arts and crafts style mansion, the beautiful scenery found in our garden courtyard and tent, or the convenience of our all-inclusive package, Willowdale Estate will make your wedding easy to plan and impossible to forget.
