are you getting married on the coast of maine? if so, you might want to make sure that you know what the tide will be doing during your ceremony. for example, if you're getting married on popham beach you may want the tide to be out so you have lots of hard sand and room for your wedding, or if you're getting married on a tidal river (there are so many of these in maine) you may want to check to make sure the tide is in so you have a lovely view and don't have the smell of clammy mud. you can view the maine tide charts by month to check out your wedding date. just remember, that if you're getting your photos taken after your ceremony you may want to plan on having the ceremony before high tide so you don't have the mud flats as your background in your images.
