So I've been engaged almost 6 months now, haven't planned a thing. I'm pretty overwhelmed with the cost and amount of things to take into consideration. I was very very close to booking New England Outdoor Center in Millnocket; but the cost is just getting out of control.
I'm at the point where I'd like to invite just close family and friends, maybe 40 or so. I'm tempted to elope but I think a small casual gathering would be great compromise as I know my mom and also FI's mom are both very excited for this wedding. That's fine with me, I'm not opposed to having a wedding at all, I just don't want to stress about it or spend a lot of money on it.
Anyways, long story shot, I was looking at Winslow Park in Freeport, they have a group shelter that costs $100. We could have a ceremony, then casual catered bbq under the shelter. I feel like it's a real steal being on the water and everything. I'm not sure their alcohol policies, I just was googling them this evening, so that may be a deal breaker if it's not allowed.
Any other ideas for similar venues?
