Hello fellow bride and grooms to be! First, introductions: My lovely fiancee’ and I are looking to have a BEAUTIFUL wedding in a state that it is legal for us to get married. (NY,CT,DC,VT,MA,IA) We are currenly focusing on NY and CT as they will be close for families to travel. No cities please (we live in NYC and not interested in a chic, trendy wedding). So if that didn’t limit us enough we are also on a tight budget 16k including honeymoon. I am convinced we can do it and it can be gorgeous and thoughtful! We like anything whimsical/garden-like, colorful and elegant VERY open to places that would fit into our budget. With 2 girls there is alot of doubles aka wedding gowns, rings, boquets etc so we have to be careful to find a place that in the right range. Looking to have guest list 100-120. Open to alt options such as fri, sun, buffet, sig drink instead of open bar etc. I would REALLY appreciate your help bee’s!!!
Thanks ladies and gents
A little overwhelmed newbee

Welcome to the Hive!! If you decide on Iowa there are a few cute places in Council Bluffs that I would recommend. We got married in CB at a place where we brought in our own caterer and booze, it was a beautiful place and I highly recommend it.

@tksjewelry: Thanks for your recommendation and welcome! Iowa is probably going to be too far but I appreciate the post!

If you’re considering the Westchester/Hudson Valley area, Hollow Brook Country Club might be good for you. It’s a barn-like, rustic reception room and you can either get married outside or inside, I believe. I’ve only been a guest there, but my good friend is getting married there next summer and she was telling me that since they’re a “new” venue, their prices are pretty good! You can even see their wedding package online: http://www.golfhollowbrook.com/sites/courses/custom.asp?id=923&page=52664
Happy planning! When are you thinking of getting married??
