- Wedding: June 2014
Hi everyone! I’m new to Weddingbee, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like a great, supportive community, and I’m looking forward to getting to know some of you on here!
Recently engaged (April 26th!) and just starting to look into venues and things. Problem is, neither of us really “like” Vermont. He grew up here, Burlington all his life (with the exception of 3 years in Florida when he was a kid). I grew up in New Husband, family moved to Burlington in 8th grade. Neither of us are particularly fond of the whole, “rustic, farmy, maple, Vermont” thing, and we don’t ski, hike, snowboard, or do anything traditional Vermonters do. We hate the cold (hence a summer wedding!) and are much more “city” people, and plan on moving, but that hasn’t been a feasable option yet.
While resarching wedding venues and themes, I was shocked to discover that Vermont is a place for destination weddings! I guess I’m just desensitized to all of Vermont’s charm…
Anyway, the problem we’re running into with venues, is we would like something outdoors, but not at a barn, or any other traditionally Vermont things. We’d like something garden/maybe tropical themed. (Not tropical like a Hawaiian luau, but more like with brightly colored flowers/decor, maybe a couple potted (or fake) palm trees, etc.) A destination wedding is not doable budget-wise, plus our family would never come. Oh, and we’re aiming for next June.
So, does anybody know of anywhere in Vermont that sounds like it might be what we’re looking for? Also, the less expensive the better…paying for the whole event and as of now we have $0 saved for it :/
Sorry if I wrote too much or didn’t give the right details, I’m still getting used to this whole “being engaged” thing!
