Planning a Non-Traditional New York Wedding

More than 2 million people get married in the US every year, with a national average cost of $29,858. It’s even more expensive New York City, where the average triples in cost! The price tag is definitely a bit terrifying but luckily, I managed to get mine less than half the national average by keeping an open mind and approaching the concept a bit differently.

A Break from New York City

You can drive two hours north of New York City and be transported to Woodstock, a small town in upstate New York, far from the cacophony of city life. My husband and I spent a few days here, exploring this town of towering trees, occasional crossing deers, quirky shops and beautiful landscape.
