    • Wedding: December 2011

    We’re having a winter wedding in the Boston suburbs at an old estate.  Hoping for elegant, winter white…and I’m hoping for snow; we’ll see!  Fiance and I are both native to the region, and most of the extended family is from this area, too, so we’re not worried about people freaking out in the snow.  I wish next winter would hurry up, already, though!

    We live in Boston, but love love love cape cod and knew before we got engaged we would want to have our wedding there.  The Cape is laid back, special to us, and perfect for an early Fall wedding.  We’re getting married after all the tourists head home ๐Ÿ™‚ 9/24/11 in Dennis.

    • Wedding: November 2010

    We are getting married in Nov because workwise we could take time off. And in the Bahamas so we had a good excuse for not inviting anyone!

    The reception will be in maine. It was originally supposed to be in Dec but we had to change it because of the Venue. We are having a christmas themed wedding right after thanksgiving;)

    @BunnyBrideToBe: We’re crossing our fingers for snow too! We want an outdoor ceremony (if the weather cooperates), and a layer of snow on the gound would be ideal. And, like you, we’re from the area and so are our families, so the “omg SNOW!!!” reaction shouldn’t be an issue.

    • Wedding: January 2012

    Oct 2nd of this year in Maine outdoors at a venue with hundreds of acres of fields, stone walls, apple trees, and flowers! Can’t wait to have all the pictures with all of the leaves changing in the background! Plus we love the outdoors and our venue is available to be rented out for 36 hours (sat-sun) and provides camp sites for out of town guests who don’t mind camping, or rv hook ups and want to stay up and enjoy the day well into the night with a bonfire, toasting marshmellows, and dancing.

    • Wedding: February 2011

    I’m also planning a winter wedding in New England.  Our ceremony will be in Massachusetts at the church my fiance’s parents were married in, and the reception is at a gorgeous vineyard in New Hampshire.  Our families are a little concerned about snow, but we’ve all lived here our whole lives, so I don’t see what the big deal is!  We are used to driving in the snow!  HA.  

    The main reason we decided on a winter wedding was because my late father’s birthday happens to fall on a Saturday night in 2011, so I thought that would be a nice way to include him in our day.  And when I told my fiance of this, he loved it.  And then told me he was secretly hoping I wouldnt want a summer wedding, so it worked out perfectly for us!

    We live in Boston and Fiance grew up going to Bar Harbor, so we were pretty sure we wanted to get married there in the fall – so we’re set for Southwest Harbor in September 2011!

    • Wedding: June 2011

    We’re planning for March 19th on or near Martha’s Vineyard. There were so many advantages to going with this date: SO is in school and will have spring break at that time, our anniversary is in March, the two venues we are looking at are significantly cheaper during March since it is off-season, and it’s at the tail end of winter so there’s potential for snow, which I love, or a sunny day! We won’t be able to choose between the two venues until we are able to visit in September so I’m hoping we get that date.

    • Wedding: April 2011

    @7SEVENJ9: Is it the Oceanview by any chance?  B/c that’s what we chose for our venue!

    So it’s, Nahant, MA.  And April 2011. The venue considers this off-season, so we’re getting 10% off. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It was a difficult decision for us because we love both the fall and the spring — and the spring won.  Our fall seems always to be super busy and we didn’t want to wait 1.5+ years before we got married.  What also sealed the deal is that we are getting married in an old mansion with a historic garden.  The garden in the spring was beautiful!
