It’s Easy to Create a Gorgeous Wedding on a Budget

In New England, the abundant natural beauty – from mountain meadows to ocean views – is free. That’s a happy starting point to plan your affordable wedding in many settings. Resorts and inns throughout New England offer function rooms for small, medium, or large gatherings; many dining options at various price points; budget-friendly accommodations; and lots of experts to help you arrange transportation, flowers, photographers, and other essentials. In some places, on-staff bakers can create a beautiful and tasty, but not overly costly wedding cake. You can speak your vows under a simple gazebo by the ocean or a mountain lake, and entertain guests in warm and loving style without excess expense..
