Hi all! My fiancé and I got engaged two weeks ago. We just started looking for venues. We are planning for a date next July or August and are flexible. We have been so shell shocked at all of the prices we have seen for places we like. Our dream is an outdoor wedding with hills/mountains as a backdrop. Also like barn, vineyard, farm, and orchard weddings. We are hoping to have an all in budget at around $30k which seems so shockingly low now. Does anyone have any affordable venue recommendations for a place that does both ceremony and reception? We are originally from Westchester County but are looking as far north as Albany or Southern Vermont and as far west as Woodstock area. Would also consider Connecticut/Mass. Also, any advice on whether it’s better to find an all inclusive place or not? Thanks!!
Hey Kristie! Congratulations on your engagement!! I hope you are enjoying all your celebrations of being newly engaged!
