The residents of Maine are nearly as rugged as the dramatic cliffs that define the state. Maine residents have a strong connection to the ocean, relying on it for much of their industry. While they work hard during the say, Mainers know how to have a good time. Maine’s biggest cities, Portland and Augusta, are foodie Meccas and include everything that an urbanite could wish for, including trendy art galleries and funky cafes.
Outside of the big cities, Maine is full of close-knit seaside villages where local fairs include pie-eating contests and lumberjack games. Along the shoreline, iconic lighthouses dot the cliffs, helping to keep ships safe. That’s a good thing, too, because Maine residents love their lobster rolls and oysters. The Northern reaches of the state are the domain of Mother Nature. Pristine forests carpet the land, offering the perfect adventure for intrepid nature lovers.
Couples should start their search for a Maine wedding venue in the state’s two biggest cities. Portland and Augusta will offer the most choices and make it easy to accommodate out-of-town friends and family.
One thing Maine has in spades is beautiful old hotels, man of which are perched on cliffs, offering dramatic photo opportunities. Those who want a memorable wedding venue, look no further than one of Maine’s historic hotels, inns, bed & breakfasts, and estate homes. Just be aware that historic buildings are usually smaller than modern-day hotels or resorts, so a big wedding party may not fit.
If you’ve always dreamed of hosting a huge ceremony with all your friends and family present, then look into a barn or farm wedding. Outside the cities, you can find many New England farms to host your ceremony, and you may even be able to save a little on your wedding budget.
Eventually, you’ll need to narrow your wedding venues in Maine down to a few top choices. Now it’s time to get the scoop by scheduling a venue tour. Seeing the venue up close and personal will allow you to connect with the space. Make sure the venue coordinator understands your vision, as they will play a big role in helping you pull off your big day.
Ask about any wedding packages that the venue may offer. To get an accurate number, it helps to have a general headcount in mind. (Use our guest list tool to help.) Next, if you already have specific vendors in mind, like a photographer or caterer, ask if you can bring in your own vendors. Some venues request that you choose vendors from their approved list.
Finally, if you’re looking to save money, see if the venue offers discounts for weekday weddings or weddings scheduled in the offseason.
Choosing a wedding venue is so exciting, but you’ve got a lot more to do until those wedding bells start ringing. Let Weddingwire help you with all your planning needs. We offer great tools, like our wedding checklist, wedding website creator, and more.
