Our Atlantic Banquet Room comfortably holds up to 150 guests. We also offer tented receptions outside (adjacent to the clubhouse) that hold up to 220 guests comfortably (additional tent rental fees will apply).
Included in each package: a cheese display, passed hors d'oeuvres, the full meal package, a champagne toast for each adult guest, bartender(s), white on white linens, and three votives/tea lights on every table. We do not charge a cake cutting fee. We also offer in-house wedding planning at no additional cost.
The Brookside Club provides all setup of the reception facility, tables, chairs and linens. Our staff will do most of your setup for you the day of your wedding providing that none of it is subject to your creativity (i.e., we will not build centerpieces, but if they are provided ready-made, we will place them on tables for you). Please contact us for details on setup parameters and restrictions.
We offer on-going, in-house wedding planning. We set up a planning meeting, called a “Detail Meeting”, designed to take you through all of the pertinent details of your wedding so we can help guide you in making informed decisions to create a successful, beautiful event.
The Brookside Club offers a Buffet package, two tiers of Seated/ Plated packages, and a Stations package. We are also happy to customize packages to best suit your tastes and desires. Customized packages and menus will be priced accordingly.
Our Chef is happy to plan and create a meal that is tailored to fit the dietary restrictions/special meal requests of a guest. Please inform us ahead of time about any dietary restriction or food allergies of any of your guests. Some fees could apply.
Vendors are billed at the same price as your guests’ meals. Vendors are included in the meals count and will be served the same fare as guests. Vendors eat their meals after all wedding guests have finished their meals.
All white linens come standard in each wedding package at no additional fee. If you would like to upgrade your linens to different colors or patterns, we will outsource them and give you an estimated cost based on what you would like to order. All upgraded items are invoiced and rented through The Brookside Club.
The Brookside Club offers custom chair covers through an exclusive local vendor. These chair covers are designed specifically for our chairs and are priced according to which chair sash you choose and the quantity of chairs needed. There are many sash colors and materials to choose from through our vendor. Chivari and other chairs are also available. Please inquire about pricing.
Yes. All vendors are welcome at The Brookside Club, but our vendor list is a good place to start, as we have worked with all our “preferred vendors”. All vendors must adhere to The Brookside Club's vendor policies. Please contact us for vendor policy questions.
Yes, our clients may bring in their own floral or pre-made centerpieces to create the look and feel they desire for their special day. The Brookside Club also offers a rental centerpiece as well: a hurricane vase with sand, Cape Cod shells and a white pillar candle for $15/centerpiece.
All candles and flames are subject to local fire code. There is no glitter, confetti, loose small stones, loose small shells and loose sand (must be in a container) or streamers allowed. All wall décor may not be altered. No tacking or nailing is allowed on any wall. No candles or decoration with water are allowed on the deck.
Clients can host a Cash Bar and/or an Open Bar. An Open Bar is based on “Consumption–by-the-Drink”. This means that we simply run a tab for you. You only pay for the drinks you consume. If you are budgeting and would like to set a monetary limit on your Open Bar, this is easily arranged. See bar options and drink prices in printed packet of wedding materials.

Our House Charge (20%) covers all proper staffing, cleaning fees, event set up and breakdown, administrative and miscellaneous fees. There is no additional gratuity owed to the staff. We compensate our staff at a competitive pay rate. You may, of course, choose to add a gratuity if you feel the staff had done an exceptional job, but it is not required.
