Hey All!

So! I'm recently engaged and it seems like my life is now strictly wedding... at least that's what my brain has been telling me.  Grin I was just wondering if  any of you crafty people have gotten married in the Burlington area and might have some pointers for me.. Please? Right now I really would like to be married in the old round church in Richmond Vermont... now the problem is finding an affordable reception. Oy.  Grin ANYWAY! Any input would be most appreciated! Thank you!

Hello,  I'm a vermonter not currently living there but...  I heard the waiting list for the old round church was like years so i'd check that out first.  what about the waterfront?  or ira allen chapel on uvm campus, that's a gorgeous place.  anyway, congrats, i just got married june 25 and planned my whole wedding by myself.  i miss home so much.  give church street a kiss for me and have some gravy fries!  (stupid people down here dont' even know what gravy fries are)

Congratulations!!  I loved planning my wedding- it was a blast and because I had just under a year was able to lots of special touches.

I've been to the round church and it was really neat.  From there my friends had their reception at Bolton Mountain (this was in September 3.5 years ago) and it was wonderful.

I got married and had the reception at the Old Lantern in Charlotte.  At the time it was $1800 for a 24 hour rental and included tables and chairs and complete use of the facility.  I liked that because my friends could camp out there once it was officially over and not worry about getting to a hotel.  We had the Dog Team Tavern cater and they were also the preferred bar service.  They are very reasonably priced- I think around $17 a plate.  I highly recommend them for a wedding caterer.  I enjoyed planning the wedding and really enjoyed the day- it was just what I wanted and we only spent around $12,000.  Good luck!  Let me know if I can help with anything!

Hi!  I moved to VT about 1 1/2 years ago... I got married at the Grand Isle Lake House in Grand Isle.  It was realllllly nice and I'm happy we chose that place. 

I've been to weddings at North Hero House (YUCK!) and the Skinner Barn in Waitsfield (very nice).  We looked at Kingsland Bay State Park (nice if you're have a very small wedding, but you have to be out by set), and Basin Harbor Club (too resorty).

Hey there,

My best friend came all the way from Atlanta back to Burlington to have her wedding, and it was held right next to the boardwalk.  The Boathouse at the time was available for a nice small reception area (it is pretty small!) which fit just right for her event. 

There are of course lots of sweet little churches tucked away in Chittenden county.... Just past the williston sprawl is the pretty chill village of Williston, which has a nice small brick church.  Etc.

 good luck and congratulations!
Don't mind if I do..

Another thing about the round church is that there aren't any toilets.

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day

Hey! I haven't gotten married, but I love planning weddings and I am helping my sister plan hers now.  She is looking to do it at one of the very nice State parks Vermont has.  there are so many around and they are not that expensive.  As for the food, I planned a party about a year ago and had Boves Cater. They are a very nice local restaurant who sells they're product all around the county, but they only have the one restaurant.  its buffet style and you have to set it up your self, but each plate comes with a choice of Spaghetti, lasagna and other delicious american-Italian food which is a huuuuge portio, it also comes with a starting salad and bread with butter.  Here is the kicker....each plate is under $5!!!!  insane right?? Check them out online.
