Allow us to introduce you to one of the most spectacular wedding venues in Eastern NC, the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center. Please note, this is NOT your typical convention center.

Large Weddings at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center
The one thing about this New Bern wedding venue you might guess just from the name is that it can host LARGE events. The massive event space can be divided up into three separate ballrooms. Of these three, the largest subsection can host 500 guests. But, combine all three to host a wedding for 1,000 guests!
If you have a long guest list, this is a dream scenario. Alternately, you might want the ample space so you can make this venue into different event vignettes. For example, one area can be the ceremony space, another can be set up for cocktail hour and so on. With this large of a space, there is no need for a room flip.
