Wedding Attire

A lot people have been asking about what is appropriate to wear to the wedding, so we thought it would be a good idea to make some suggestions.

The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception will all be outdoors, rain or shine. The areas will be tented if it is raining. There are no paved paths on the island, so stiletto heels are probably not a great idea. Also, even though it is in Maine, it could be hot/sunny so black suits are discouraged.

For most guests, your visit will be bracketed by boat rides, which can be chilly even on a warm day. The ride back to Portland will be at night, so you’ll be glad you have a suit jacket/blazer for gentlemen or a sweater or shawl for ladies.

We would like to encourage people to stick with the color scheme of the wedding if possible. We are wearing white/ivory, blues, aquas, greens, browns and grays.
