Water’s Edge Resort and Spa – gorgeous and reasonably priced. We were planning to get married here but chose against it only because Connecticut would be difficult to get to for most of our guests (I grew up in CT, but 95% of our guests live in other states).

Mystic Inn was really pretty. I looked at that before my venue…I think they were on the expensive side though. Have you checked out weddingreports.com they have a bunch of CT venues listed.

@cecullaton I am also wearing the Bride hoodie from VS! It was just delivered the other day and it is sooo cute on. My wedding is in August so I’ll probably wear it with a cute pair of shorts.

I also plan on wearing it on the way to our honeyomoon…I always freeze on planes.

I grew up right near Water’s Edge…it’s a beautiful spot! I’ve also heard great things about Harkness State Park. Other good spots in the area include:

Mystic Seaport, The Branford House (on the campus of UCONN at Avery Point in Stonington), Saltwater Farm Vineyard, Guilford Yacht Club, Saybrook Point Inn and Spa…there are a lot of pretty options and I’m sure I’ve left plenty of them out! Good luck 🙂

I’m getting married at the Branford House and my whole family and FI’s family are all obsessed with it. Definitely take a look.

ETA: Their website kind of sucks – I almost didn’t even look there. You really need to go there to really get a feel for it.

guilford yacht club is gorgeous BUT they charge $4,200 just to use the place and its non-negotiable!  we ended up going with the pine orchard yacht club instead, it’s right on the water (www.poyc.com).

@plantains – When we went, we met with Katherine who is the house manager and she really was pretty thorough in her tour and all the major logistical stuff. She also has a bunch of books with photos of events they’ve done there in the past to give you a good idea of what you can do. I can’t remember if I even had to ask her any specific questions but you’ll find that certain questions will just come to mind when you’re touring especially since you’ve been around WB and have some clue of what you’re doing.

This may not be your cup of tea…but I am getting married at Lake of Isles in North Stonington.  My thoughts about my wedding were that I wanted my friends and family to make it a weekend event.  Many of them are staying at Foxwoods Friday and Saturday evening. 

Sheila from Lake of Isles has been fantastic to work with.
