Hello, I am new to this site, and was hoping to get some advise. I just recently got engaged in August, and we were hoping to have a spring/summer wedding for 2009. Our guest count will probably be between 50-70 and we are hoping to keep it under $10,000. I am open to pretty much anything but I have no idea were to look or find affordable places. All of our guests are out of town, and we don’t really have a "house to borrow" for a tent rental. I have looked online and everthing is out of my budget. Any ideas within Boston, New Husband, RI, or Ct will be very helpful. Thanks!

My sister went to a wedding just a few weeks ago that was held on the Boston Common (free!) and then the reception was followed at the All Hands Club … along the water in Boston.
I think the Aquarium isn’t too expensive either, and they do outdoor tented weddings.
There is the Saphire Estates in Sharon, MA, but that is pretty far outside of the city. http://www.saphireestate.com/

Sorry – I meant to add — Good luck and Congrats!!
Boston weddings can be expensive but if you are willing ot move outside the city you can really find some beautiful places.

I am very willing to go outside of the city. I am pretty much open to go anywhere. I checked out the Saphire estate and that looks to be outside my budget as well. I am also looking for a place where hopefully I can do the ceremony and reception at the same place because 80% of the guest will be out of town, and don’t want the extra hassle of moving place to place. I was in a wedding where the ceremony was in the morning at the church, the place for pictures was about 45 minutes away, and then the reception was another 45 minutes from there. Was a long day!
