    $1k is not a huge different and your fiance loves it! I would say that matters more than anything.

    I would take the price out of the equation at this point if it is only $1,000.  The barn is beautiful but I would be concerned about the weather – I am from the area and know how bad winters in Maine can be.  At the resort you will be in one place for the weekend, and if there ends up being snowy or icy it will be a lot less stress for people.  Maybe you could ask the barn if they’ve hosted weddings in bad weather before.  (If vendors are still able to make it, if surrounding roads are plowed timely, etc.)

    It sounds as though you’re leaning towards the barn. That’s fab. And if your Fiance sees himself getting married there that’s great.

    With a $1,000 price difference instead of $3,000 I’d go for the barn. It really is significantly prettier. 

    However I’m from a tropical place so I really have no idea about driving in winter and the problems surrounding that!

    Where in Maine is the Seaside resort?  Just curious as I am staring to plan and hoping to find something in Maine. Ideally a place where ceremony and reception are in the same place. Also a place where wedding are the only guests for weekend (invite list will be between 100-120) so ideally not a big hotel

    Barn. Resort looks generic.

    Just make sure that you get it in writing what the costs will be and all that, but that’s true for everything you book.

    I was back and forth which I liked, think both look wonderful. I asked my husband what he thought, and he voted barn big time! Looks like my husband agrees with your Fiance. 🙂  Sounds like the barn is what you want in your heart, I think that’s what you do! Especially if you don’t feel the need to decorate, that seals the deal for me.
