Everyone in the know already knows that Provincetown is a great place. Both locals and visitors agree that we are an ideal getaway destination, whether you are looking to spend a great family vacation, spend some romantic time together, or cruise the circuit during one of our legendary singles' gatherings.
However, Provincetown is also a great place for a destination wedding. And the legendary acceptance of our town, coupled with Massachusetts being one of the few states that issues same-sex marriage licensees makes our town an ideal place for ANYONE to get married. And the word is getting out!
In May, 2012, Cheapflights.com named P-town in the top 5 gay wedding destination cities in North and South America. Noting the town's natural beauty in the form of the beaches and sea, opportunities for fantastic food, and the amazing nightlife, the article let's readers know how perfect this coastal town is for just a visit, and that our town's openness and acceptance makes it perfect for weddings.
Travelers Today reiterated this opinion in a summery of Cheapflights.com's article, recommending the bed and breakfasts for accommodations.
In December, 2011, 14stories.com got the jump on them both. Bernadette Smith, in her 'Weddings Redefined' blog featured Provincetown as a recommendation for a gay wedding destination. Besides the obvious freedom to be who you are, their recommendation cites our beautiful beaches, world-class dining, and great shops for reasons to visit. Recommendations for vendors, Clergy, and photographers are also offered. Two of our own Inns were even cited as great places to stay during your wedding getaway!
Finally, in 2012, About.com's Lesbian Life names Provincetown in 3 out of 10 best places for gay and lesbian marriage in Massachusetts. Just three potential site locations were suggested, however any of our member inns would make a prime location for a Provincetown elopement or wedding.
