Woman Getting Married Says:
Nantucket is such a charming place to visit, let alone get married. Because it can be somewhat tricky to get to, hosting your reception at the same place guests are staying is definitely a good idea. While the rooms (and venue itself) are on the expensive side, the hotel is consistently ranked as a favorite among travelers and brides. If you’re considering a Nantucket wedding I would definitely add this to your list.
