I got engaged in March, but I am just starting to plan and post on here. We are looking to get married in about a year. We haven't picked a date yet, since you are really at the mercy of availability! We are looking to have our wedding somewhere between the Seacoast (or North East MA) to the White Mountain Region. We would go for Southern Maine as well. Does anyone have any favorite venues? Being 3 hours from the location now makes it hard to plan, I wish I had the time to visit every place I am interested in, but its just impossible
I'd also love DJ and live music suggestions. I'm fine with a DJ, but my finace wants live music, may be we can have both. I've been to weddings where someone plays off an ipod, and found it to be dull, I just prefer and interactive DJ. I have also been to one where the DJ called the Bride by the Groom's ex wife's name, so I would reallylike a good one! Photographer suggestions are welcome as well.
I'm still working on the budget and will narrow it down when I am able to get an idea of how much reccommended vendors charge. I'm frugle, but not crafty enough for DIY. I'm happy to pay for good services, but I am finding that setting a budget under $20k may be nearly impossible since I am afraid a meal won't be enough food!
Thanks for all your help!!
