  1. I have used Vinwood Caterers every year for the last 3 years for my company Christmas party. These guys are a class act. They even did my wedding back in 1989, unbelievable! You will find that every detail of your wedding dinner is treated as if they are serving royalty. The quality of their food is of the highest caliber. If you are ever concerned about anything, simply call Rick, Tom or Ray, they will quickly attend to any issues you may have. As for the Commons, have been there for several weddings. It is as elegant as most weddding halls in the Boston area. Vinwoods even holds their annual Christmas Party there, so you know it is charming and comfortable. Hope this thread was helpful.

    1. My sister had her wedding there 2 years ago, and the food was fantastic! Everyone was raving about it, and it was the only wedding I've been to where the food was one of the highlights. Congratulations, by the way!

      1. They did my wedding in 2005 & everyone raved about the food. Their customer service is great. Appetizers were wonderful & they have so many choices. Everyone always raves about the beef tenderloin.They are doing my sister's upcoming wedding & have done all of my cousin's weddings & I have never had a bad bite! Tammy at The Commons is wonderful to work with & The Commons is gorgeous. Good luck!
