As I do ever year, I’m sharing the best days to get married in 2019. I find this information in the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Up here in New England, the Farmer’s Almanac is a relied-upon publication and has been for many decades. It’ll tell you things like best days to cut your hair and best days ask for a loan. But you’re here to find out the best days to get married in 2019, so here we go.Read More
As I do every year, I provide you with the Farmer's Almanac best days to get married in the coming year. Since 1818 the Old Farmer's Almanac has been offering advice and wisdom and predictions for the future, so I consider them a trusted source of information. Here are the best days to get married in 2018.Read More

FINE PRINT: It's important to know that I'm not a wizard, magician, fortune teller, or psychic so take these dates with a grain of salt. I'm not even sure how the Almanac derives the best days to get married, I just know that you all want to know which are the best days to get married every year.
I'm so fortunate to be part of the Maine wedding community and specifically the Maine wedding officiant community. We are a diverse group providing a wide range of services. Whenever one of us is booked we try to refer that couple to another officiant. In that spirit, I've put together a list of Maine wedding officiants I know and trust. I will say this, though, I have never seen these officiants actually perform a ceremony and for the most part I'm don't know their process for working with their clients. These are folks I know personally and really like (or come highly recommended by other vendors I trust), which is what my recommendation is based on.

Why I'm recommending my competitors
I know you might think I'm crazy putting together a list of my "competitors" on my blog, but it makes sense when you understand how strongly I believe in you finding the right officiant. I know that I'm the right officiant for some people and not for others. And that's totally ok. I'd rather help you find the right officiant for your wedding than try to convince you with some icky sales pitch to hire me. It's so important that the person who stands up there with you on wedding day is someone you feel comfortable with, who you genuinely like and who deserves and has earned your trust. Take your time finding the right person, do your homework and meet with your top choice. A good officiant and a beautifully crafted ceremony will set the tone for your wedding day so make your selection carefully!
Good luck and happy wedding!
We Maine wedding professionals field a lot of inquiry emails, especially during “inquiry season” which is Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day. You want your inquiry email to stand out, to have some personality and to catch the attention of the wedding vendor that you're hoping to work with, right? To help your email stand out from the crowd think about using some of the following suggestions.Read More
I think every couple getting married should create a wedding website. You can get a free site or pay a little extra for a totally fancy one with a customized domain name. Either way, wedding websites are a great way to communicate with everyone connected to your wedding.
- Useful for guests: tell them where to stay, what to do in the area, where to eat, how to get to the ceremony/reception, where to park, what your hashtag will be, any specific instructions to guests (for example, adults only weddings, unplugged ceremony, wear flats, etc.), tell them where you're registered, about your wedding party, about your love story leading up to your engagement, and share all those professional photos and videos
- Useful for you: have guests RSVP through your wedding website, let them ask questions before the big day, avoid the awkward "where are you registered" issue
- Useful for your vendors: we get to know you, see photos of you (especially if you're from out of state and we haven't met you in person yet), "meet" your wedding party, refer to your wedding day timeline, parking instructions, and get to know your wedding vendors (if you provide that information)

I have a question for you, my friend. Do you have any recommendations for the best place to shop for wedding/engagement rings in the state and out of state? Asking for a friend - a friend who wants to marry me but is super stressed about the ring stuff!Read More
