They said yes; now it’s time to find the perfect spot to say, “I do.” These days, there are so many interesting and enchanting places to hold your wedding, so how you can possibly know which one to choose?
If you have always dreamed of a New England-style wedding, New Hampshire offers many options based on your ideal wedding location, theme, style, and more. For many couples, choosing a theme and a venue are among the most difficult decisions they’ll have to make about their day. Other couples already have a picture in their heads of their dream wedding, and they are just looking for help making it come true.
Whether you know exactly what you want, or don’t even know where to start, an NH-based wedding planner can help you perfect all the little details.
Popular NH Wedding Styles
Are you overwhelmed by the number of choices you have to make now that it’s time to start planning your wedding? From the venue and theme to the food, cake, music, and seating plan, your head might be spinning right now. We know it can be a lot for a couple to handle, so we’ve put together some ideas to get you started on designing your NH wedding. Here are a few popular styles of NH weddings to consider:
Is the ocean or beach your happy place? You can create picture-perfect memories when your wedding day is held near the ocean. Ideal for the warmer-weather months, you could opt to go barefoot on the beach or set the scene with the backdrop of the crashing waves from an elegant resort. Your wedding planning team can also weave elements of the locale into your event, including ocean-themed decor and colors throughout the scene.
NH’s Seacoast offers plenty of options for an intimate oceanside or beach-themed wedding. One popular choice is the Seacoast Science Center in Rye. Located within historic Odiorne Point State Park, the Seacoast Science Center offers indoor and outdoor options. The outdoor option features a tented wedding reception alongside the ocean, providing stunning views for your big celebration.
A rustic-style wedding often incorporates distressed wood and a neutral color scheme, allowing this event style to be as low-key or as elegant as you want to make it. You can keep your day casual with hay-bale seating or create swoon-worthy photos when you seat your guests at extra-long dining tables. A professional wedding planner can work with you to fine-tune the details, helping you add hand-painted signs to provide your guests with reception information or by using wine barrels as your cocktail tables.
One popular NH wedding venue is The Barn at Moody Mountain Farm in Wolfeboro, which offers the ultimate rustic wedding experience. If you’re looking for an authentic New England character, this is the place! It’s simple, yet spacious, with plenty of room to make it the way you want it.
Tented Outdoor Weddings
This option is perfect for couples who want some feeling of a traditional indoor reception, yet with the beauty of the outdoors. The setting offers couples a fail-safe solution should the weather on your wedding day be less than desirable. From chandeliers or string lights to adorn the top of the tent to romantic draperies down the sides, and a dance floor of any size imaginable, a creative wedding designer can help create a beautiful tented experience – from top to bottom.
Another great thing about tented weddings is that they can be held pretty much anywhere! Some couples even choose to host a tented wedding at a private residence or at a rented estate. There are plenty of great places to hold tented weddings in NH and throughout New England, such as Toad Hill Farm in Franconia. This picturesque spot offers a historic location with gorgeous scenery and plenty of flat open fields to place your tent. The farm is available from Thursday afternoon until Monday at noon, allowing couples and their guests to hold multiple wedding-related events throughout the weekend.
Additional NH Wedding Ideas
Are you looking for something a little bigger? Or, maybe you don’t live in New Hampshire, but the idea of an NH wedding sounds magical. Here are a couple of additional options for your NH wedding design.
Sometimes, a small event just won’t do. When you want to have hundreds of guests at your gala, you need the right resources to help you handle such an extravagant affair. The right NH-based wedding planner will provide access to large wedding venues in NH and will have the ability to work with designers who can turn a reception hall into your wedding fantasy. A great wedding planner will also bring you the one-of-a-kind ideas that wedding dreams are made of, helping you make your large wedding a success from start to finish.
