I’m getting married at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank in Wellesley, Mass – there are gardens you can have ceremony and cocktail hours at and Hunnewell building you can have your indoor reception – the gardens are beautiful and their designs change yearly.

  • Wedding: December 1969

If you want a small, intimate wedding (a great way to keep costs down), I can highly recommend the Commanders Mansion in Watertown, MA, right outside of Boston.

It’s a gorgeous Victorian mansion that makes extra decoration unnecessary. My renewal ceremony felt more like a great party in a private home than a wedding venue.  I especially loved the upstairs bridal suite with a large vintage bathroom, which made me feel, well, like a princess.

Best of all, because the mansion is city owned it’s more reasonable in price.  And, if you’re a town resident, or know one, you’re entitled to a discount.  We booked had a friend book in March for us and we saved a bundle.

I’ve included a picture of hubby and me in that suite and a picture of the room.  Email me if you want more details.

Congrats!

  • Wedding: December 1969

I got married in the Boston Public Gardens. It only cost me $100!  They have limits to how many people can be at the wedding, but we broke those limits. When we asked if it would be a problem if we had a lot of people, we were told that it’s a public park.  If people show up, they show up.  They have a right to be there. They have a lot of other rules too, but we had music and some chairs for our elders.  We had some decorations as well. 

If you want it to be private, it’s not the best place.  However, it was a lot of fun for us.  we got married during July 4th weekend last year, so we had a lot of tourists witness our wedding as well. 

It was a beautiful wedding though since our plot of land faced towards the Swan Boats.  So in the pictures, you see swan boats going back and forth.

Good luck!
