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..

Have a wedding true to your vision and budget at this idyllic mountain resort

Perfect packages, no venue fees and experienced planners who believe your wedding should be true to your vision (and budget): That’s how weddings that don’t break the bridal bank are created at the exquisite Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. Lots of choices at this luxurious resort, from venues (a flower-filled courtyard, glass-ceilinged atrium, stately ballroom, private mountain-view field) to menus (cocktail parties by the pool, grand receptions with elegant banquets under a tent). All of your options, though, come with exceptional service and amazing views. Make it a destination wedding and enjoy all the resort activities, from tennis, hiking and swimming in the summer to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter, and sumptuous accommodations with fireplaces, hot tubs – and those fabulous views.
