Getting Married in Connecticut

No matter where you plan on getting married, the most important thing is that you and your partner should find a venue you both love. It should be the kind of place that can live up to the dreamy expectations you have for your wedding. It also needs to be within your budget. Considering this, if you are planning on getting married in Connecticut, there are a few venues you might want to take a look at.

Remember that seeing a few pictures is never the same as actually going to see the place in person, so take some time off your agenda to make a tour and visit these properties. If there is one you like in particular, you could even ask to see it while a wedding is taking place so that you can get an idea of how it would look like during your own celebration.

  1. For an outdoor reception, you might want to take a look at Webb Barn. This 19th century construction offers both the area inside the barn and the beautiful gardens around it to host a party. It is the kind of place where you would be able to have a unique and different kind of wedding, rather than going down the traditional lane.
  2. Crystal Peak is a great option two. They are very conscious about people’s budgets so you might get your dream wedding in this lovely venue even if you don’t have such a big budget destined for the party. Check out their packages and offerings.
  3. The Gwyn Careg Inn opens up all of its spaces to people who are looking to get married. This might give you a lot of flexibility if you are unsure about what it is that you want exactly. With the woods around it, you will definitely get some lovely wedding pictures to save.

These are just a few of the Connecticut wedding venues that await your special day.

One car to fit them all!

Weddings vary so much from one to the next one that you will probably see a lot of different ideas throughout your life. You might go to the traditional church ceremony, followed by an elegant dinner and live music with a dance floor. You might end up at a thematic medieval times wedding where you are supposed to share your food with twenty others in your table and you won’t get any utensils to make things easier.

Everyone is entitled to have their dream wedding and as long as the bride and groom agree on things, guests are always in for a surprise. If you want to do something classic and more traditional, you might choose the first kind of party mentioned, with classy decorations, a table for the newlyweds and beautiful flower arrangements that show off taste.

One very nice way to compliment this kind of ceremony is using a limousine. Limo services are available all across the country, but you might just be lucky enough to find a specific wedding limo service in your area. This kind of service can be used to get you from your house to the church, from the church to the party venue or even from the venue to the airport to begin your honeymoon. A limo service will surely get your guests’ attention and you will be able to make an entrance worthy of those pictures that will be kept and shown for years to come.

You could even schedule a specific photo shoot session with the limo to take advantage of the service you are hiring. This will make for some really unique pictures and it will give you and your partner some time to enjoy and connect before the actual ceremony.

Find it all in one place!

Weddings are supposed to be magical ceremonies followed by unforgettable parties that make up the best moment in the couple’s history. As such, there is a lot of pressure into making sure everything is perfectly coordinated, down to the most minimal details, making sure that everything flows smoothly and that all the guests have a good time.

If you just got engaged and don’t even know where to start so that you can actually make this happen, don’t worry, there is one event you won’t want to miss. A Bridal Expo is a planned event where you will be able to find providers for everything wedding related. What’s more, you will be able to learn a lot of stuff you probably had no idea about. A Bridal Expo is a great place to get a general idea about what’s in the market, prices, themes, available providers, venues, dress makers, etc. This will give you the opportunity to get a macro idea about the possibilities you have and, who knows? Maybe, if you already had a specific idea in mind, you might find exactly what you were looking for.

Bridal Expos are a great place to visit as a couple or even with your bridesmaid or mother. Take the time to go around and see what everyone has to offer. Don’t be afraid to ask or make notes about prices and products and services because with so much information, you might forget a few things. If possible take some time before you visit the Expo to look into the providers that signed up for it. If there is a specific provider, whether they do flower arrangements or sell wedding dresses, that you are interested in, you should go find them and see if they have any special discounts to offer. You might be surprised!

There’s your best friend… and then there’s your wedding planner

When you start planning out your wedding, you will probably involve two people aside from your husband-to-be. They will be your best friend and your mother. After all, even though your groom will have an important say over the big things, it is usually women who look after all the details involved in planning such an important event. Men tend to be more… distracted, about flower arrangements, wedding favors and other wedding related topics.

Considering this, you will probably use your mother’s and best friend’s help for a number of decisions you’ll have to make, however, there is one other person who will be extremely important in your wedding planning process. This would be your wedding planner. If you don’t have a planner yet, don’t worry, you are still in time and you will surely be able to get a really good one. One of the most important things you should consider when doing so is that it should be someone you absolutely trust. If there is good chemistry and you are happy and satisfied with the way she helps you around all the preparations leading up to the big day, you will surely find yourself at your party simply enjoying it. This means you won’t even think twice about issues or last minute details, because you’ll know she has got you covered. And this is why your wedding planner will be as important as your mother and best friend.

She will not only be able to help you, she will also be there for the groom and for your mother and best friend and anyone else who is involved in the wedding planning. As such, you should make sure you select her carefully, and if you don’t feel comfortable with your wedding planner, don’t hesitate to talk about it and find a solution.
