Hi again! Where did you graduate from? I went to Assumptipn! One of my dear friends got married at the Fruitlands Museum and it was beautiful! We plan to look there as well!

@misswhimsy:  Tower Hill is gorgeous! Before we decided to have a smaller wedding and just do it at my mom’s house, that was one place I thought about having it.

p.s. I assume you’ve looked into whether the college has a reception venue that you could use too?

As for keeping it simple, prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. Don’t get caught up in needing to have 150 hand-sewn napkins and stuff like that. For me, anyway, the things that were the most important to me were the food, the cake, and my dress. Everything else I tried not to stress about. I let the florist do basically whatever he wanted using local, in-season flowers; I let Darling Husband make the music playlist, I skipped tons of things altogether (favors, veil, bridal party, dj/band, limo, garter, froofy details like chair covers/toasting flutes/cake cutting set).

By The Way, I HIGHLY recommend Peppers Catering. At brunch the next day, guests were still talking about the food because it was so good.

As someone who recently got married at the Publick House in Sturbridge, I can definitely reccommend it. There are a few pictures of it in my recap thread, and of course I can answer just about any question you might have. We had a wonderful experience there.

Simplifying a wedding involves just as much planning and forethought as designing a more complicated one — careful management of resources is key, as is working with the right people. Also, ditto to @mightywombat about dropping anything that isn’t important to you. The less “stuff” you have to manage, the easier it is to focus on the rest.

Woohoo!  Central MA Bees unite! 

Check out the Harding Allen Estate in Barre…also the Sturbridge Host Hotel does it up nice.  I LOVED Zukas…my best friend got married there. 

Check out the Overlook in Charlton….I visited there and absolutely loved it.
