At last . . . your dream day has arrived. Imagine your wedding in a quaint New England church, a lovely garden at a country inn, beside a shimmering lake at sunset or atop one of the numerous hills and mountains in our area. Whether you are planning an intimate wedding, an elopement or an anniversary, make the Greater Bridgton Lakes Region your ultimate romantic destination. From rustic and modest to exquisite and luxurious, from quiet and discreet to large gatherings, you can find the services you need to fulfill all your wedding dreams in western Maine. Discover the options we have to offer and let your creativity flow as you plan to embark on your new life together. In this picturesque New England setting you can find all the resources necessary to create a celebration you will remember and cherish forever. We have caterers to supply the feast or simpler fare, lodging venues to host your stay, florists and rental businesses, shops for gifts and wedding finery, horse-drawn carriage rides or limousines, plus photographers and videographers to capture the memories.
Finding the right person to marry you is an important decision–after all, that person will have a huge influence on the tone of your ceremony. Town clerks can provide you with marriage licenses and names of Justices of the Peace. If you are planning a religious ceremony and already have a family clergyperson or you are getting married in a particular church, your choice will be easy.
Every season is a special and magical time of year for your wedding. A romantic winter wonderland wedding can include a glimmery snowy dreamscape or be held in front of a fireplace in a country inn. Glowing candles and sparkling lights reflect the snowy outdoors and joy that will radiate from a winter wedding. Spring time means new beginnings, and sets a beautiful stage for the two of you to start your new life together. Imagine a garden wedding or your wedding photos taken with soft springtime hues of pink, lavender, light green and soft yellow in one of our many parks. Warm summer breezes and fun in the sun make the summertime a great occasion to be married indoors or out. Whether it’s in the backyard, a field with a mountain view, lakeside or in a manicured garden, outdoor weddings are perfect in the summer. And fall, with its brisk autumn days or the warmth of an Indian summer, is also an ideal time in the Lakes Region as the leaves turn and the nights grow cooler.
Not only is the Greater Bridgton Lakes Region a perfect setting for your wedding, but it is also an ideal Maine honeymoon destination. Leave the hectic lifestyles of the big cities and return to a simpler time in the Lakes Region. We have a wide variety of accommodations to suit all budgets and tastes, from self-service cottage rentals to rustic lodges and country inns. If the outdoors is your playground, you’ll be ecstatic with the choices from skiing to golfing, hiking to fishing, biking to snowshoeing and swimming to horseback riding. Our western Maine hills and mountains, rivers and trails await. If you desire a more relaxed pace, spend a day browsing our local shops or visiting our small museums. Enjoy a romantic candle-lit dinner at one of our restaurants. Or take in a seasonal art show, play or live music performance. Honeymooning in the Lakes Region can be a romantic and unique way to usher in your new life together.
And don’t forget your guests. Information brochures are available at the Chamber of Commerce office. Be sure to send them to your guests early so they can spend some extra time in the Greater Bridgton Lakes Region before or after your wedding and enjoy all that the area has to offer. We also have facilities for your next reunion or conference.
