Since Wayne proposed to me on the beach last July I have been busy planning our late summer wedding. New England, and especially the coast of Maine, is a prime location for destination weddings. That means venues get booked well over a year in advance! We have family coming from all over New England, New York, New Jersey, the west coast and Europe. Even so, it’s going to be a small wedding. In some ways it will be very traditional, in other ways, not at all. For example, I’m a bride in my fifties. I will not be wearing a white wedding gown because I don’t wish to do so! We are truly doing this our way.
I have learned many things about being a non-traditional bride planning a wedding in Maine. I will be sharing some of my experiences that will hopefully be helpful or give you some inspiration if you are considering getting married.
As for where Wayne and I will get married and have our reception, we’d like to keep it a mystery until after our wedding day. I will definitely be sharing some of our day with you here afterward!
