Central Connecticut’s Premier Wedding Venue

Modern. Elegant. Romantic.

With its city chic design, floor to ceiling glass, expansive outdoor terrace, and two luxury Bridal lounges, the Bristol Event Center offers modern elegance and romance for your special day.

From intimate fresh-air ceremonies to grand ballroom celebrations, we can accommodate weddings of any size, from 50 to 600 guests. And because we insist on exclusivity, hosting only one wedding or event at a time, every space is designed completely around you. Contact our Wedding Consultant to arrange a private tour.

The Century Ballroom

The Century Ballroom features elegant crystal chandeliers, as well as abundant natural light from the soaring bi-level floor to ceiling glass walls and exquisitely designed retractable doors to the Outdoor Terrace. Use the entire space, or partition the room and choose either Century North or Century South, depending on the number of guests.

Ballroom Pre-Function

With two beautiful built-in bars, the Ballroom Pre-Function is ideal for cocktail receptions of up to 350 guests, and can accommodate larger groups when opened to the Outdoor Terrace. The Ballroom Pre-Function also features a large wall-mounted LED screen for displaying a welcome message or photo collage, as well as comfortable lounge furniture and private seating to share a conversation, take photos, or make a quick call home to the babysitter.

Outdoor Terrace

Adjacent to both the Century Ballroom North and the Ballroom Pre-Function is our 8,000 square foot Outdoor Terrace. An idyllic setting for a wedding ceremony, this space features an elegant stone bench around the perimeter and a custom-built bar with room to comfortably host up to 300 people for a cocktail reception, or 200 guests for a plated dinner reception. A variety of tenting options are also available to ensure a picture-perfect wedding, rain or shine.

Bridal Lounges

Located on the second floor of the Bristol Event Center, our luxurious and comfortable bridal lounge offer nearly 1,000 square feet for day-of preparations. Each lounge features a private restroom, hair and makeup room, a contemporary wet bar, and a warm and inviting seating area for relaxing. The Bridal Lounge North also includes a beautiful outdoor balcony overlooking the Outdoor Terrace.
