Bridal consultants in the New England area can make all of the planning much easier. Among other things, a consultant can make sure your desired venue is free and help connect you with an officiant. Consultants help take a lot of the stress out of issues like getting your license, so you have more time to just take it easy.

Themed weddings are a lot of fun, particulary historical-themed weddings, autumn-themed weddings, and winter weddings. If you have the chance to hold an outdoor wedding, you and your guests will experience New England in all its splendor. Your special day will be one to remember.

A destination wedding may be more affordable than you think. Local musicians are often very happy to provide beautiful music. A reception in one of the historic inns is very suitable for a more intimate party. Local hotels or inns often provide special deals where a couple can enjoy an economical but fun honeymoon.

What to Do If Weather Destroys Your Foliage Trip

It’s the moment every fall foliage lover in New England dreads – what happens if the area you want to visit gets a lot of rainy, windy¬†weather or late hot and dry weather? Could it ruin your planned trip and will you need to consider alternatives?

Firstly – don’t panic! It’s very likely that your intended destination survived the weather largely unscathed. Use foliage maps to find out which areas have the color you’re looking for.

Plan some alternate locations that don’t involve straying far from your original route. Some good places to go may not be very far from where you originally intended to take your trip. Foliage updates can be very useful in helping you select alternate locations, when necessary.

Find unique locations near the area you’re touring that may offer fall attractions or events. Examples include:

  • Haunted houses, hayrides, and other Halloween attractions
  • Farms with pumpkin patches or apple cider stands
  • Scenic drives through natural areas
  • Historic villages with authentic activities and reenactors
  • Craft fairs that could give you a head start on holiday shopping
