Like many of you, I’m working with a budget for my wedding, so naturally we considered a backyard ceremony and reception…until we thought of all the cleanup. So, an offsite wedding has really won us over. Here are a few of the affordable New Hampshire wedding venues I’ve come across in my search!
NH State Park Pavilions
A little known secret for weddings and other larger events, is that the state parks in New Hampshire actually rent out structures on site at budget friendly rates. The capacity varies from a dozen people, to up to 1,600, so you can work with any size guest list, and still have an affordable wedding venue.
Camp Starfish, Rindge, NH
This summer camp, nestled away in the woods, provides a rustic wedding venue for up to 150 guests. There is space for the ceremony, either an indoor or outdoor reception, and even brunch the next morning. Guests may stay in the cabins onsite, or in nearby hotels. As an added bonus, the venue fee goes towards paying the camp fees for kids who can’t afford to go otherwise. The beautiful scenery and rustic feel, and price are hard to beat in terms of affordable New Hampshire wedding venues.
The Barn at Moody Mountain Farm, Wolfesboro, NH
Barn weddings have been trending for good reason – the rustic aesthetic of a New England barn is just spectacular. With a beautiful barn, and incredible views, Moody Mountain Farm is an ideal affordable New Hampshire wedding venue for up to 150 guests. You’ll be able to stay well within your budget at this location, while enjoying the incredible scenery.
Kimball Jenkins Estate, Concord, NH
This historic estate is an incredible and affordable location for your wedding (for up to 300 guests!). The ceremony and reception can be held in either the elegant mansion, or the more casual carriage house. Gorgeous scenery and a rich history will provide a perfect backdrop for your big day.
The Inn At Valley Farm, Walpole, NH
This beautiful inn and farm offers a variety of affordable wedding and elopement packages, with some delightful a la carte options including wine tastings and massages for the couple. Whether you’d like to be married in the barn, or outside in the circular stone-walled perennial garden, the Inn at Valley Farm can certainly accommodate you. Rehearsal dinner location and lodging for up to 28 guests (with more locally) is also available.
Cathedral of the Pines, Rindge NH
Stunning views of Monadnock, incredible stonework and beautiful architecture make Cathedral in the Pines one of my favorite affordable New Hampshire wedding venues. Featuring an outdoor venue that can seat up to 750 guests, or two smaller chapels, this location is perfect for your wedding ceremony and reception.
