Probably one of the single most important decisions to make regarding your wedding, after the actual date, would be what venue to host it at. For those that have day-dreamed about their wedding day, and already started planning it pre-engagement, this may be an easy task - but for most it is a difficult decision. Often guest count and budget come into play when narrowing down the options, but also the type of venue is an important factor to consider. Vermont has many different styles of venues and locations to choose from and the number of choices can be overwhelming.
If you live in Vermont, starting with venues close by can be an obvious place to start. However, don't let distance discourage you from venturing out beyond your 'burb. Many venues offer on-site accommodations which can be well worth the cost as it eliminates the need for other expenses, such as transportation, and all of your guests can stay at the same place allowing the party to extend later into the night and the entire weekend. Plus you have the added benefit of discovering a new part of Vermont and avoiding having your wedding at the same venue as all of your friends.
