Nights in Maine, even in the middle of summer, can be chilly. Evenings on the coast are especially cool. If you’re getting married in Maine, you could throw a sweater or light jacket over your wedding outfit, but I have a better, more fashionable option for you: a Swans Island Company wrap! You’ll stay warm while still looking fabulous, and your choice of covering will represent your Maine wedding experience.
Swans Island Wraps
I am the lucky owner of one of the Swans Island Company hand-dyed, beautifully woven, Kennebunk Wraps and it’s heavenly. Here’s the description from their website:
A versatile accessory across all four seasons, the airy, lustrous Kennebunk Wrap can be worn as a shoulder wrap or as a luxuriously cozy scarf. Each American-made wrap shines with the rich tonalities and subtle shimmer of our hand-dyed Merino wool and Tussah silk yarn.
How glorious does that sound? It’s all true. My wrap has a lovely sheen to it that makes it feel luxurious and cozy at the same time. It’s very versatile, I can wear it as a bulky scarf, a shrug, or wrapped around my shoulders for the most warmth and coziness. So, instead of covering up your wedding gown, wrap yourself in one of these merino silk wraps at your reception.
Gifts for Them and for You
For an added bonus, give a wrap or scarf to each of the bridesmaids and mothers, they will love you forever. So, that’s how you’ll all stay warm, but what about your guests? Drape Swans Island throws around your wedding ceremony site or reception venue so guests can stay cozy as the sun sets. Or, put one of these keepsake blankets on your wedding gift registry. It’s one of those items you’ll have for the rest of your life and will always remind you of your Maine wedding!
Martha Stewart and Michelle Obama and Bill Laurita
It’s true, both Martha Stewart and Michelle Obama are fans of the Swans Island Company products. And, it’s not because the blankets, throws, wraps and scarves are a status symbol, but because they are crafted with such attention and care. I know this to be true, because I’m also friends with one of the owners, Bill Laurita. I’m impressed with the company’s dedication to quality and its passion for crafting a uniquely Maine item.
When planning the perfect Maine destination wedding, nothing could be more authentic than a gift from Swans Island. As they say, “Let Swans Island tell your Maine story.”
