Five Great Spots to Tie the Knot in Provincetown
Provincetown provides a stunning backdrop for any wedding
Provincetown - for such a small town at the end of the Cape - does not have a shortage of lovely areas to hold a ceremony (and reception). It may seem hard to weed through the options, so we have culled a list of the five best spots in Provincetown to tie the knot.
1) The beach. Yes, the beach has been done, but with so many to choose from in Provincetown, couples are sure to find one that they can make their own. All the town beaches do not require permits - although people can still use the beach during the ceremony. However, the National Seashore beaches (Herring Cove, Race Point), while they do require permits, they also offer more privacy and will enable couples to hold their reception on the beach as well (they can even enjoy a bonfire). Why not get married at the tip of the world?
Art's Dune Tours also arranges for small wedding parties to get married out in the dunes and couples who are interested are encouraged to ask them about it.
2) MacMillan Pier is another great spot to get married. Couples need only to speak with the harbormaster to arrange for the ceremony. Couples can be married under the cupola at the end of the pier (as long as it is a small ceremony). This is a beautiful location for an intimate wedding.
3) The Pilgrim Monument, according to Candy Collins, the executive director of the Provincetown Chamber of Commerce, is "a very unqiue spot for sure". The area is set up for functions and the views are spectacular.
4) Collins also recommends tying the knot on the deck of the Bay Lady II, docked at MacMillan Wharf. This is a very nice spot to get married (in nice weather) for smaller wedding parties.
5) The inns and guesthouses of Provincetown also are nice choices for ceremonies and receptions. Collins recommends the Lands End Inn and the Red Inn. Collins says the Lands End Inn is a beautiful spot that is also perfect for a honeymoon, while the Red Inn has a lovely deck overlooking the water (especially nice in summer).
