If you're a resident, this place is great -- it's really accessible and SO inexpensive. They're not very good at communication and they're pretty inflexible, but... the space is gorgeous, so it's a pretty decent trade-off.

Originally we planned an outside wedding but due to the inclement weather we had to move the wedding inside. But what was lovely about this venue is that its inside is as gorgeous as its outside. Bringing in our own vendors was fun but can be very pricey if you don't discipline yourself. It got a little hot because of the lack of AC but that might have been more because of all the dancing that was occurring. The staff was very professional and very easy

The Waveny House proved to be the most perfect, unique, and breathtaking location for our wedding. We held our ceremony in the walled garden- my walk down to the garden felt so beautiful. The house itself and the outdoor terrace allowed for the most fun cocktail hour and easy flow. We even used the grounds to take pictures both early in the day and later at night. We didn't do a formal sit down since the separate rooms kept guests apart. But once everyone ate, the mingling continued! We kept the dancing going inside all night long, the bar we put outside so people could get some air and had easy access to their next drink! The breakfast nook off to the side was the best location for dessert. Our final exit in the overhang was fun and epic. Our supervisor provided by the Waveny was extremely helpful, making sure only guests were in our area. He was so helpful and positive all night long. We can't wait to return here for years to come reliving our day.

Our event was moved inside due to the weather which wasn't very spacious. We had the tables that our guests were sitting at scattered in 3 different rooms along with our food, alcohol and dessert tables. For as big as this venue is the layout of the inside isn't really ideal for a wedding. May be a great place for a smaller party.

Waveny House is a beautiful location, very well taken care of, and ideal for an event. Their kitchen is very well supplied, and the accents are amazing, as is the garden. Plenty of parking. When you rent, all you are getting is the space and use of their equipment: terrace, most of the first floor, suites upstairs, option to rent the walled garden (which we did, but it rained so we didn't use it but used the outdoor enclosed terrace instead); tables, chairs, table ware, kitchen equipment, etc. You will probably have to spend on additional rentals, like table cloths or seat covers, and anything extra your caterer might need like serving trays or ice bins. I'll say it again: the place is beautiful, especially in late spring/early summer. Bear in mind also that the main floor is broken into three rooms: one main room (seats 80), 2 side rooms (seat 40 each).

We had our wedding at The Waveny House and it was amazing! Our guests loved the mansion and how old it was. The ceremony was in the walled garden and was absolutely beautiful. Our reception was inside and we loved how nice it looked! We had so many options to take pictures outside and they came out great!

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE--Don't use this space. The people who run it are racist and horrible. We had the worst night of our lives here for our wedding when the janitor serving up as the main "host" harassed my family and nearly physically assaulted by fiance. We wrote note after note to the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce and to others and never received a reply--not even an apology note. Do yourselves a favor--this place is bad news with bad kharma.
