welcome to planning a wedding in the boston area, where everything is ridiculously priced.

we’re most likely doing our wedding in new hampshire, so most of the venues i’ve looked at won’t work for you. however, here are a few of the places i’ve found in my search, none of which are hotels (sorry):

the commons 1854- it’s in topsfield, it’s gorgeous.

lombardo’s- awesome space.

alden castle- so so so pretty

bel mer- it’s in newport, rhode island. so freaking pretty. might be out of your price range though.

the exchange- right on the water

If you are willing to go out to the Worcester area, I’d check out Zukas Hilltop Barn. Don’t let the name throw you – your wedding isn’t actually in a barn. There is a huge, twinkly tent (you can get heaters if it’s cold) and a beautiful indoor space with a huge fireplace and a really cool bar. We are getting married there and able to keep it under 30,000 with 150 guests. My sister-in-law was looking at Boston locations at the same time, so I know it is well-priced 🙂 Good luck!

@beantwnbryde:  have you looked at the museum of science or aquarium? They both have outside spaces. They aren’t hotels but there are plenty close by.

the thing is, if you want to be by water, at night, there isn’t much of view.

@beantwnbryde:  A friend of mine is getting married at Le Meridien in Cambridge. It’s a hotel and they have a terrace that’s really pretty for a ceremony.

@beantwnbryde:  I know this is late but I looked at the hyatt downtown, they have a beautiful roof deck for weddings (we almost booked there but decided to go with a different location (not outside, winter wedding haha)).
