Many people come from all around the world to get married in Vermont. It’s really not surprising because there are so many scenic, romantic locations tucked away in the Green Mountains where people can exchange wedding vows. From luxury resort hotels to small, intimate country farms or inns, there is no shortage of places to tie the knot.
Some couples come to the state specifically to get married, said Jackie Watson, owner of Vermont Enchanted Events and board member of the Vermont Association of Wedding Professionals. A total of 4,686 Vermont weddings were held in 2012.
Local businesses such as hotels and inns are fully equipped to help with wedding planning on some locations offer special wedding arrangements that “do it all”, ensuring a wonderful and enjoyable “special day” for the bride and groom and all who attend.
Is it expensive to have a wedding in Vermont?
A millionaire’s budget is not required for couples to have a memorable Vermont wedding. An off-peak season wedding, with lower cost venues like a bed and breakfast, inn or historic town church, a conservative guest list, and appetizers and drinks or buffet, instead of a full dinner, can be both affordable and special for everyone.
Some couples opt for a bit less traditional wedding, taking advantage of such unusual but memorable locations such as lake tour boats, hiking trails, town gazebos and even farms. Vermont State Parks are also and option for wedding ceremonies. With the gorgeous views and all that Vermont has to offer there simply are no shortage of places to get married.
