A Cape Cod Snapshot

I spent a glorious spring Friday with clients doing visits of Cape Cod's most spectacular wedding venues.  From Provincetown to Plymouth, we hit them all - it's a great way to get out of the office.

Cape Cod is a fabulous wedding destination - it feels like nowhere else on earth.  A Cape Cod beach town is not like a beach town in any other state.  The venues combine luxury with rustic charm with stunning views.  There are even venues for every budget, believe it or not, though weddings on the Cape are at a premium in typical wedding season.  Because the Cape relies so heavily on wedding and tourist dollars, many places will require long minimum night stays.  And especially on the outer Cape, there are fewer of each kind of vendor, so you better plan ahead!

As you can see above, there's even a vineyard on the Cape - check out the Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod - I love it!

One of the fun parts of planning a wedding on Cape Cod are the decor elements - beyond the typical flip flops and scallop shells - you can really have fun with the imagery and themes.  I love the dune aesthetic, personally.

It's ironic that I'm writing this entry today because this morning I had an inn in Provincetown cancel on one of my clients for their July wedding (20 guests).  And the inn was within their right to do so - though that certainly didn't make me or my clients happy at all.  Very few places in Provincetown will consider hosting a wedding in July and it's not exactly convenient for guests from out of state, but Ptown is unlike anywhere else on earth and is certainly worth a visit regardless...

If you are considering a wedding on the Cape, there are lots of logistics and it's a bit more complicated than your Boston wedding, especially getting room blocks for your traveling guests, and working with one of the few tent/rental companies on the Cape, and planning for traffic, and finding the best floral designer and photographer.  Though, this stuff is all easy for a professional planner who knows the area.
