Make a grand entrance on the cascading staircase at this made-for-events facility north of Boston. The lounge, used for the cocktail hour, has dramatic steps that spiral down in front of a floor-to-ceiling window, and there's also an oak piano and bamboo floors. Just off the piano lounge is the West Indies-themed Grande Ballroom, with a covered outdoor terrace that can accommodate a beautiful cocktail hour location. The executive chef will prepare a menu based on the selected wedding package (there are three packaged options with a number of Entree selections)—or he'll customize one for you!

Call Jen for additional information 978-757-3003!

I was completely satisfied with Devens Common Center from beginning to end. Immediately when I met with the staff I was impressed by their friendliness and professionalism. The food was delicious and the location was beautiful. I was very thankful for their flexibility and willingness to accommodate all of our personal requests. They also hooked us up with a great local DJ, World Record Djs who we were very very pleased with.
Jen did a great job helping us plan out our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a nicer location.
One last perk, the dance floor at Devens is great. It's a large space right in the center of the room, not a small little square off to the side like in some other locations.

We followed up many times via phone leaving messages, and email. However, we didn't get responses right away. We were ready to sign the contract and before we knew it, the date was taken. Reasonable prices but the lack of response will keep you on your toes in working with this vendor.

Devens Common Center responded with the following comments:

Good Afternoon Private User,
First of all, we would like to thank you again for considering the Devens Common Center as your event venue. We are sorry that you feel that you had trouble getting through to our sales office. We do have several sales people in our office working to book events, so we go through a standard process each time we receive an inquiry to hold/contract dates on a first-come, first-serve basis. We put a hold on the requested date for two weeks, giving the client time to review their contract and sign/return it with the deposit. In the event that the client does not respond in a timely manner, we reach out to them to give them one last chance to claim their date before we release it.

Unfortunately, in your case, the date you had requested was already on hold for another client. Upon reaching out to the client, they confirmed that they would be mailing in their signed contract & deposit by the end of the week.

Again, we are so sorry for any mis-communication. We pride ourselves in our flexibility and fairness with each and every client.

Sales Manager,

Devens Common Center

The venue was beautiful and the people were very nice, flexible and professional. We loved that the venue had so many spaces we could use. We utilized the balcony and stairs for our ceremony, the porch, patio and hall for our cocktail hour, and for people who needed a break during the dancing portion.
Unfortunately there were a few things that didn't quite work out the night of. There were some decorations that never got put out, and some things that got lost after we dropped them off. The cake was cut into the smallest pieces I've ever seen and only 10 or so were put out at a time, meaning no one ate the cake and we had about half of it left at the end of the night. I had a lot of trouble getting timely responses from anybody as well. After I signed the contract I didn't hear from anybody until the week before the wedding and it took 2 weeks to get reply by email. They also tried to charge me more than we had agreed on. Check their math.

Devens Common Center exceeded my expectations for our ceremony and wedding reception. When we began looking at vendors a year prior to our wedding, I had my heart set on a rustic chic venue. I quickly realized my vision would need to change because those venues were way too expensive for our budget. Prior to looking at Devens Common Center, I was concerned it would look too much like a conference space, but the ballroom is huge, and transforms wonderfully from ceremony to reception. I also loved the convenience of it being attached to a hotel because we had a number of out-of-town guests in attendance. The food service was perfectly executed and the food was delicious! Many of our guests complimented us on the food. I was really impressed by it the day of because it was even better than it was at the tasting. I highly recommend if you're looking for a beautiful, cost-friendly location with excellent food and service. The 3.5 rating on responsiveness is related to emails only, as the wedding coordinator/sales manager can sometimes be slow to respond. On the day of the wedding, she was extremely attentive.

Overall, everything went well but some of the behind the scenes details were lost in the craziness. I didn't realize that the coordinator would be leaving after dinner and handing the night off to an assistant--or I wouldn't have given her a large tip ahead of time! Also, there was some miscommunications about set-up time which left my coordinator scrambling causing some items to be left undone!

Food was great! Staff (mostly) was very helpful and accommodating to allergies/special needs!

The Devens Common Center is a beautiful venue if you are looking for a ballroom set-up. The room is decorated in subtle golds and taupes that mesh well with any decor you choose, and the dance floor is huge! I sincerely appreciate the help that Kerri, Jen and others gave me to organize my day, and everyone had an amazing time.

The only glitch in the day was with the gluten free meals, but the kitchen was quick to accomodate my guests. I also found the Devens Common Center was slightly more expensive than the other venues I looked at, but worth it in the end because of the flexibility with their packages.
