Weddings Away

The North End of Boston-Little Italy
Every month Bridal Guide scouts a spot that's perfect for tying the knot away from home. This month they picked Massachusetts, my home state. One of the great reasons to choose Massachusetts as your destination wedding spot is how much the area has to offer your guests. This destination wedding spot offers friends and family a vacation opportunity. Pick an interesting place and people will be even more glad that they came.

Massachusetts offers a beautiful seacoast, tranquil countryside and mountains, a fabulous city, and Cape Cod. Along the coast you can find lovely towns such as Gloucester, Cape Anne, Nahant and Hull. These rocky beaches are old seaports with a storied history. Boston is one of the original cities in this country.  The seaports are where it all began. Old warehouse buildings and commerce building have been refurbished and are now special occasion venues.

If it is countryside that you prefer, try the Seven hills Inn at the Berkshires. This mountainous area of the state is located in the western corner and has long beckoned travelers who love outdoor adventures, trees that never end, amazing fall foliage, and a little bit of culture. Tanglewood is located in the Berkshires and is the summer home for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.  The Seven Hills Inn is located on 27 acres with a main building that once was a mansion of the gilded age. Wedding ceremonies at this three season resort are held on the manicured grounds or in the ornate drawing room. Receptions are held in the ballroom. They hold one event a day and you are attended to by the owner of the property.

Christopher Columbus Park, Boston
The city of Boston is the best place to have your destination Massachusetts wedding. There is so much to do, it would take me all day to describe it..There are parks that ready for you and beautiful hotels if you prefer an indoor setting. Boston is known for its narrow, winding, cobblestone streets, land marked historical buildings that date back to the beginnings of America, the site of the Boston Tea Party and many upscale hotels. The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center is located in the waterfront district and offers couples a choice of ballrooms with adjacent canopied decks that can accommodate as many as 190 guests. Your guests who travel to Boston  for your special day and stay in the waterfront district of the city will have plenty to do when the wedding is over.Here is a city that you can see on foot, via subway or by boat.

I have to make mention of the romantic and lovely Cape Cod area. Bridal Guide loves the Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Brewster Massachusetts. This sprawling resort offers guests multiple pools, tennis courts, four restaurants and a newly revamped golf course. The accommodations are spread out among the historic mansion, and villages of 1,2 and 3 bedroom villas. On the property there are a variety of places for your wedding day party. There is the new Linx Pavilion, set on the golf course at the 18th hole for you and 300 guests. For a smaller group try the romantic Carriage House or the Ocean Terrace if you prefer  a view of Cape Cod Bay.

Rocky shore and historic lighthouses
When you choose a place with the character of Massachusetts you will find wonderful fun traditions to add to your wedding events, like a walk on The Freedom Trail, a traditional lobster/clam bake on the beach, or a private cruise and picnic for you and your guests. The list is endless.
