Button Weddings:

What’s in a Name?

Buttons are part of our history: the West Boylston Company, the textile company and former mill occupants from whom we take our name, made buttons and cotton cloth over a century ago, and we still find buttons around the mill!

Our five-hour, midweek button weddings invoke the simplicity of this legacy.

Why Book a Button Wedding?

Less planning, less stress, less expense, less waste, more happiness!

 

By now you’ve probably noticed: wedding planning the usual way requires a lot of effort and a sizable budget. We get it if you’ve seriously considered throwing in the towel and eloping (we can help with that too!) But, there is a middle ground: Button Weddings!

 

We have gathered a team of award-winning Western Massachusetts vendors to provide their creativity, talent and skill at prices that are much lower than the rates for a conventional weekend wedding, organized from start to finish by your dedicated wedding planner.


Whether you want a buttoned-up formal affair or a casual Wednesday soiree, we can pull it off in less time, for less money, with all the amenities you need to have a small, simple, stunning celebration.
