Hi Ladies! I don't know how much things have changed since last I was on The Knot, but last time I was on here, intros were a thing to do. If they're not "in" now, forgive me. I'm a Greater Boston area bride with a Winter 2017 wedding. We are looking at venues from Sturbridge, MA to Amherst, MA to the Boston area all the way up to Conway, NH. This is my 2nd wedding and my fiance's first, so I'm hoping to avoid some pitfalls I fell into last time. I'm not sure how active I'll be on here but I'd love to have a group to ping ideas off of. Right now we are looking at January 2017 with a rustic winter elegance. I want things to be intimate, but we're already at around 100 people on the guest list but we haven't done much culling yet. We're paying for most/all of it so budgets are important. I'm not sure what else to say other than...Hiya!
