Maine Elopement and Wedding Planning – How to Make the Most of Your Big Day

1. Consider the Setting When Selecting Your Maine Wedding Venue

Here at Sebasco, choose from six specific spots for your coastal Maine wedding venue, depending on the size of your ceremony and your ideal backdrop as you say your vows. Set your heart on sweeping vistas of Casco Bay islands from our Pool Lawn, stroll by colorful gardens at the Village Green, or opt for an indoor venue-with-a-view to soak in a memorable sunset over the harbor.

Looking for a scenic venue fit for two? Many couples swing by and elope to Sebasco for an intimate Maine elopement ceremony — after all, our resort is within a day’s travel from the city but juuust far enough away to feel like you’re actually getting away. The perfect place for a magical Maine elopement ceremony you’ll never forget.

2. When It Comes to Maine Weddings, Less Is More

Before you get too far down the rabbit hole of planning your Maine wedding, remember: Mother Nature does most of the decorating for you. For your guests, it’ll be love at first seaside sight between the Midcoast’s rocky coastline, lush forests, and rolling views of Casco Bay.

As tempting as it may be to consider extravagant centerpieces and showy sculptures, you’ll find that “taking the tabletop less decorated” is equally pleasing to the eye, thanks to Maine’s natural beauty.

Chat with our in-house wedding planners to pinpoint the style that suits you — from nautical nuances to rustic elegance to modern styles, a one-of-a-kind Maine wedding setup is just a conversation away.

3. Have A Rain Plan for Your Maine Elopement or Wedding Ceremony (But Don’t Really Worry About Your Wedding Weather)

Clipper Meeting & Event Space Decorated For Maine WeddingAh, rain…the meteorological bane of every wedding couple. The good news is that a rainy Maine wedding retains its seaside splendor when it takes place at venues like our window-wrapped Cornelius Room or The Clipper, a cozy building that radiates rustic charm.

At either location, the soothing pitter-patter of raindrops sets the scene just as elegantly as clear skies above. As for a replacement to aquatic activities and celebrating on grassy lawns: when the rain clouds roll in, we respond by rolling a few strikes at the candlepin bowling lanes in our Quarterdeck Recreation Center.

All too often, wedding guests get stuck scrambling to find a comfortable spot to stay — but at a resort like Sebasco, your guests will be taken care of just as well as you are. Point them in the direction of our lodging options, and they’ll have no trouble finding a fitting spot to stay.

While traditional accommodations and grand harbor views at our Main Lodge get the majority of wedding guests’ attention, families and groups can stick together in a cozy Maine cottage or soak in a Pure Maine experience with an oceanfront view at the Lighthouse.
