@Creiddylad:  What about Shelburne Farms? I always loved it there – not sure how affordable though.  If you’re looking for REALLY rustic, try Camp Abnecki (not sure if I spelled that correctly…)  Most of my friends that are from there usually have their weddings in a family member’s backyard.

We got married at the West Monitor Barn in Richmond (not sure if that is North enough for you!) on a Friday, so our site fee was $3000.  They have tables and chairs (though we rented white ones, theirs are black plastic, but I’m sure you could make them work).  Their fee for a Saturday would be over your budget, but if you were willing to do a Friday wedding then this might work for you.

Some pics because I can’t help but share!

Lol, I don’t live in Vermont, but I love the State and visit often…

Not that surprising that Shelburne Farm would be expensive, afterall it has a “storied” past being a previous Vanderbilt property (and it seems that ALL their US historical properties are expensive to use for Weddings)

You might want to try the stuff that Mr TTR & I did when we were looking to plan a Destination Wedding… just use GOOGLE to see if you can find any websites that have info… try – Getting Married in Vermont – OR – Vermont Weddings – for example

Vermont State Parks have a Wedding Page = http://www.vtstateparks.com/htm/weddings.htm

I am sure that you’ll find something that suits, as Vermont does have such amazing scenery and a good assortment of Parks, Lodges, Country Inns, Historic Barns & Properties, Wineries etc.

Hope this helps (some)

To @MmeVT:  Wow, GORGEOUS Venue.  Vermont at its best for sure.

LOVE the idea of being married beneath an Apple Tree in bloom…

BUT that is going to be difficult to plan for (beyond finding a place that has a tree) as the trees come in bud / flower dependent upon the weather…

And once in flower they don’t tend to last that way very long.

I don’t know about Vermont specifically … but here in Eastern Ontario that “window” can be anywhere within say a 3 week span and happens not that long after we get our Tulips in bloom

Lol, I may have a black thumb (Mr TTR is the gardener) but I do have an eye for what I like…

Things tend to go… Tulips – Lilacs – Apple Blossoms – Peonies

Often despite being in the Mountains, Vermont being south of us tends to go thru Spring earlier than us by a week or two … which means the Apple Blossoms could be happening mid-May vs Late May.

Something to think about / research ??

@Creiddylad:  As of last year, it was $3500 for a Sunday.  But I don’t believe they have any apple trees.  Good luck with your search, it sounds like @creativeplannertobee’s suggestion might be a good one!

I have found that the more open minded I am to dates the better deals I am finding. I am in the procces of venue searching myself, so far I have only seen ones local to muself (rutland county) but if you are willing to search across vermont you may find alot of options. I checked out Mountain Top Inn in chittenden expecting it to be far out of my budget, but found that thier off season rates are actually quite reasonable. November1st – december 24th is 2500 for friday or saturday (saturday you are required to book the entire inn) and sunday the fee is waived. December 24th- april 31st 2500 for friday, 5000 for saturday (again same requirement) and waived on sundays expect for holidays those are same as saturday.

I am also planning to check out jay peak, they have a barn, and tent options.. According to the info they sent me it’s only 1800 to rent the tent I can’t remember about the barm though.
