I recently asked a question on facebook: “If you could go back and relive one day in  your life, what would it be?”

All but one of my female friends who responded said, “My wedding day.”

There are so many different elements that go into creating “the perfect day”… one that you will cherish as you look back on it.  A very important part of achieving your ideal wedding vision is finding the right location at which to hold it.

The Finger Lakes region is a hidden gem when it comes to wedding locations.  Not only are there an abundance of beautiful traditional wedding locations, such as hotels, party houses, ballrooms and museums, there are also stunning outdoor locations, inviting wineries, romantic inns and B&Bs, cruise boats and even farms and orchards that provide the perfect backdrop for a wedding.  Remarkably, holding a wedding here can be far more affordable than many other destinations.

To help prospective brides find the  perfect venue for her fantasy wedding, beginning the week of March 13,  The Finger Lakes Travel Maven will feature a weekly series of articles on unique locations in the Finger Lakes to hold weddings.  If you know of a venue you’d like to suggest, please email me at CWhiteLlewellyn at msn dot com (using traditional email format).
