I'm surprised that The Meeting House isn't already on Wedding Wire. It's an absolutely beautiful location for really any event situated in historic Tiverton Four Corners. We had our wedding in early October and the location was perfect.

Betsy is incredibly friendly and helpful and the value was excellent. We worked with a caterer that knew the location so there were no hiccups along the way and everything went smoothly.

We had our wedding at the Meeting House in Tiverton, and the venue was a huge hit. All the guests fell in love with the charming building and lovely grounds. It is more suitable for smaller weddings: we had 65 guests, and we held the dinner in a tent, the ceremony on the grounds, the bar on the porch, and the dancing/cake in the building. That worked extremely well and everyone was happy. Be warned! During some parts of the year they hold a modern art exhibit on the grounds. You will want to ask if these pieces will be visible during your wedding, as that style of art is not for everyone. Betsy was a pleasure to work with and had a lot of good suggestions.

We looked at nine places before deciding on The Meeting House, and I think it’s one of the state’s best-kept wedding location secrets. The location is beautiful. The interior is gorgeous. Our guests raved. We chose the tent site directly adjacent to the awning-covered deck so that we had one continuous space. Our ceremony was inside, dinner under the tent and dancing back inside.

Communication and coordination was sometimes challenging. The site’s coordinator is a lovely woman, but is not really into e-mail communication, which made things difficult. I’d e-mail and she’d call back, often during working hours when I couldn’t pick up. (She always responded promptly, I’d just have preferred she use e-mail.) Also, because our conversations were on the phone or in person, I didn’t have certain things in writing and that came back to bite me later. For instance, the contract mentioned a $50/hour fee for access to The Meeting House before the event, such as for a rehearsal. When I inquired about it, she said that she doesn’t charge that unless she feels people are really abusing her time and gave the example of a bride who was just supposed to be dropping things off but then started working on her favors while this woman sat there waiting. Then, a few days before our rehearsal, she left a message confirming our rehearsal reminding me of the $50 hourly fee. Because I never asked her to put it in writing, I was stuck, which was disappointing. (You also pay a $25/hour fee for their hostess to be there the entire time the venue is open during the wedding, so be aware of that added cost, and you have to have open bar there, too.)

But the site is gorgeous and the communication glitches would not be enough to keep me from highly recommending the site or choosing the same venue again.

The Meeting House was fantastic! It's a lovely spot to be outside, in a beautiful setting and building, and the price is great. Betsy was fantastic to work with, responsive, and took care of things I never would have thought of. She was also very calming when I had a million questions!
